When it comes to
sex and intimacy, it can be hard to know where to go for advice. The internet is full of infinite information and can make finding resources on sexual health and wellness confusing and, at times, even frustrating. If you find yourself in this situation, following sex therapists on TikTok is a great way to start.
Sex therapists can provide a wide range of services and information, from how to have an orgasm to better ways to communicate your desires in bed. Many sex therapist TikTok creators come from backgrounds in psychology, social work, gender studies, and social justice. These therapists create content to teach individuals about their bodies and pleasure, to destigmatize
kinks, and to emphasize how healing and communication relate to sex.
No two sex therapists are the same, so whether you’re a parent who wants to focus on intimacy while raising a family or you’re happily single and childfree but want to take ownership of
your pleasure, an educated sex therapist might be just what you need. While nothing can replicate one-on-one sessions with a licensed professional, TikTok still has informative content from experts in the sexual health, healing, and well-being space.
