15 Sex-Positive Instagram Accounts To Follow
My world is full of sexuality professionals so I was initially shocked when people would share that I was the first sexologist, educator, or coach they had met – especially if we were talking about online spaces. While I see sexuality professionals as loud and proud individuals, our existence continues to be taboo and therefore hidden from many.
We’re not here to hide and we don’t want you to either.
Whether you have some favourite sex folks you follow or you are new to this world, check out the below list for a great mix of people with different foci but all seeking to support individuals in feeling validated and sexually empowered.

Many, if not all, of the people listed use their platform to inspire change and to speak to issues of marginalization, power, oppression, and strength. It is not enough to be sex positive if we are not also anti-racist, anti-transphobic, anti-fat phobic, anti-ableist, and so on.
Please also note that this is not a full list by any means. A lot of these accounts belong to people I know, some of whom I’ve worked with in the past, and whose accounts inspire me in some way. But there are so many others! In fact, I follow over 700 accounts, most of which are sexuality related folks, on my own insta @Yaelthesexgeek.
