7 Awesome Sexual Health Twitters To Follow If Your Sex Ed Sucked

I’m appreciative that I had a sex ed in high school that wasn’t a total and complete joke like a lot of people have to deal with. I mean, the fact that some schools are still teaching abstienence above all else in the classroom makes me want go into a rage spiral.

Teen girls and young women are mature enough to know about their bodies, sex and all the weirdness that comes along with it. That’s why we only tell it like it is here at Gurl.com when it comes to those topics. But there are some other great sources around the internet if you want some great sex and sexual health information and advice on the fly. Here are seven Twitter accounts that you should follow ASAP, especially if your sex ed blows.

1) ScarletTeen

Their slogan is “sex education for the real world” and they seriously aren’t afraid to get as real as they need to. Their content is diverse and applies to girls and young women of varying ages, sexual orientation and gender identity. Frankly, it’s rad.

 

 

2) Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is pretty much the embodiment of feminism in one organization. They’re awesome with making sex ed informative and making intimidating topics like abortion, STDs and birth control super easy to understand.

 

 

3) Dr. Ruth

Dr. Ruth is like your grandma who had a lot of sexual adventures back in her prime and wants to share all she knows with you.

 

 

4) Sex Etc.

There’s no frills to Sex Etc. They just tell it like it is when it comes to basic sex ed info that your teacher might have been too prudish to go over.

 

5) Queering Sex Ed

As awesome as it is to have comprehensive sex ed in school, let’s be real: It’s all super cisgender-centric and hetero-centric, isn’t it? If you’re under the queer umbrella and wish that there was sex education that you can actually take advantage of, check out this Twitter page.

 

 

6) Tara McKee, sexED

Okay, this chick is awesome. She’s like the straight forward and fun older sister who knows all about STDs, G-spots and vibrators. If you want some cool sexy info on the fly and you love reading articles that are feminist and sex positive, she is absolutely worth a follow.

 

 

7) RAINN

Sexual abuse and sexual assault are also rarely mentioned in sex ed classes. But honestly, why shouldn’t it? How can we have a conversation about sex without a conversation about the importance of consent? Whether you’re a survivor of sexual violence or you just want to support an organization that helps others with this problem, definitely check out RAINN.

    I’m not into Twitter at all, but I should look more into the people behind these accounts, they sound awesome! I wish we had high school classes that taught us this kind of content. My sex ed class (technically called “Health Class”) wasn’t the worst thing ever, but there wasn’t a lot of stuff with LGBT students in mind and we definitely didn’t get any free condoms out of it.
