Sex without Love? No way!

Art possibly by Al Avison from True Brides’ Experiences #11, April 1955, Harvey Comics.

I actually used this gag before—back in 2012. But this time I used the dialogue with different art. (See below.) I think it works better this time.
I’d love to pretend that the success of Last Kiss comics is solely dependent on the writing. But having better art really improves most gags!
