157. “How You Wished It Happened” Comic Strip

August 10, 2009

Q: I remember reading an issue in the mid to late ’70s that had a black & white comic strip depicting three scenarios of a guy losing his virginity. The titles were something like “How You Wish It Happened” (a naked woman magically appears in the guy’s window and has sex with him), “How It Should Have Happened” (the guy and his girlfriend have a mature talk about sex first), and “How It Probably Happened” (they are drunk and clumsy). I’ve been searching around but haven’t figured out which issue had this. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

A: Carol comes through again: “‘First Intercourse; My Fondest Fantasy’ by the late John Hughes, in the Jan ’80 (Fantasy)” ish.’ Thanks, Carol!
