Sex is different for every person on the planet and can be a difficult topic to talk about. Have you ever felt ashamed to ask a question about sex? Or not known who to ask? Maybe you’ve wondered if what you’re experiencing is normal? The good news is that you’re not alone! When it comes to sexuality, there’s always more to learn. We believe that more education and communication around intimacy and sex leads to a healthier culture and healthier self.
We welcome you to The Sex Ed community and invite you to nurture your sexuality—and sexual health—as a vital source of personal and creative power!
