Title text: If you've never had sex, this is what it feels like. Complete with the brief feeling of satisfaction, followed by ennui, followed by getting bored and trying to make it happen again.
This comic shows the popular video game Tetris, in which you use different shaped pieces to fill in lines to score points. The more lines you fill at a time it results in more points.
Heaven is, when you get the perfect piece in Tetris that fills out all the empty space you have on the board. The next piece here is really odd, but it fits exactly the empty spaces. In addition, the piece coming after that is long and flat, enough to fill an entire line on its own.
The title text compares this experience with an orgasm. After "the brief feeling of satisfaction" you are bored, ennui means a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest, but at the end you want more.
A fan even made a modified version of the classic Tetris game, where at a certain frequency, a 'heaven' perfectly fitting block comes along. The game can be found on. http://www.gudmagazine.com/games/heaven/.
Also see comic 724: Hell, which presents an opposing situation in which the game is impossible to play.
- [The display is a tetris game. A large oddly shaped piece is falling towards the board. The piece fits into the gaps exactly to complete multiple rows at once. The next piece is simply a very long brick.]
