The internet was conceived as a place for free discourse, but if you're talking sex, options are still somewhat limited. Facebook's opaque policies on what constitutes "objectionable" content is nearly impossible to pin down, while sites like Instagram ban all kinds of sexual content (or ... at least nipples) altogether. And then there's Twitter. While there have been some allegations of Twitter "shadowbanning" those who post sexual content, the platform still provides a lot more freedom when it come to talking about (and displaying) sexual content. So, we pulled together a list of the top sex educators and experts to follow. These feeds (and those who run them) are diverse, but we chose them based on content, reach and impact. What they have in common is that they're fun, educational and just plain awesome. Follow them all!
We've done our darndest with this list ... but we're only human. Did we miss someone? Let us know!
