Your sexual education shouldn’t be limited to a few middle school health classes.


Especially since the extent of your school’s sex ed can vary widely depending on where you grew up and when. Maybe your school district covered abstinence-only education, or maybe it was more progressive but still pretty basic. (You can check out what each state allows here.) Regardless, sex is a whole lot more than penises in vaginas, so chances are those textbooks and lectures didn’t quite cut it.

That’s why we put together this list of great books, podcasts, video series, and websites that can help you learn how to think about, talk about, and (most importantly) enjoy sex. The main takeaway: However you identify and whatever your experience level, there are sex-positive resources out there for you. Now, this is definitely not a comprehensive list of everything you’ll ever need (and there’s a good chance not all of these will be right for you), but it’s hopefully enough to get you started.

If you haven’t had sex before — or even if you have! — and you want a few primers, you might also want to check out things to know before you lose your virginity and this basic sex advice that others wish they’d known when they first started having sex.

Now, let’s learn more about sex!
