The Videos

The 5 videos featured in Queer Sex Ed are available to watch for free on YouTube and have been arranged here for easy viewing.

Sex Media Myths: Sex Educators React | Queer Sex Ed

We learn a LOT about sex through TV, movies, social media, pornography…but is it accurate? IRL friends sit down to talk about what they learned about sex through media, versus what it’s actually like in real life.

Self-Pleasure Stories: Sex Educators React | Queer Sex Ed

Many of us grow up feeling guilt or shame for deciding to explore on our own. Turns out, self-pleasure can be a healthy tool for learning about your body, what you like, and what you don’t like!

Sex in Relationships: Sex Educators React | Queer Sex Ed

Sex can get complicated when we want to bring a partner into the mix – we asked IRL friends to talk about their own sexual (and asexual) relationships while sex educators react. Consent and respect are always key!

Disability and Sex: Sex Educators React | Queer Sex Ed

All different kinds of bodies can have sex – and from being Deaf to living with chronic pain, there are a lot of factors that can affect our sex and dating lives.

STIs and Sexual Health: Sex Educators React | Queer Sex Ed

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can sound scary and have a lot of negative stigma attached. We asked some IRL friends to share their experiences with sex prep and safety, testing, and STIs (including the fact that STIs are common, and most are treatable).
