n the age of social media, we have influencers for everything, including sex. Why should we care? Because following them is an easy and safe way to open up the conversation on all things sex.
Although we are in the age of feminist porn, sexual liberation, and shows like “Sex Education" popularized on Netflix, a lot of information about sex is still very taboo and not necessarily readily available. The approach many sex influencers take to end the stigma around sex, including its pleasures and problems, is not only informative, but it’s also empowering. So, for those of you who missed out on a comprehensive “talk” with your parents or sex-ed class at school, we have a list of people who will give you the 4-1-1 on everything you should know (but probably don’t) about sex.
