15 Latine/x Sex Educators You Ought to Know
People respond with excitement and surprise when they learn what I do. Often, I’m the first sex professional they’ve met. This can be especially true in communities of color and immigrant populations. Though sex education/coaching is a growing field, finding culturally relevant resources can still be a challenge, especially if you don’t know where to look.
Below you’ll find a (very non-exhaustive) list of Latine/x sex & body educators/coaches. Some post in English and/or Spanish (while not listed, some Portugese & French speakers are also under the Latine umbrella) and offer great content.
I’m not Latine/x, should I keep reading?
Following people of different identity groups can offer new perspectives on things we think we know. It can also offer a window into experiences we’ll never have which can increase empathy.
I guess I’m Latine/x but why does identity matter?
I remember my first session with a Latina therapist. It felt like a game-changer. What for years was dismissed by others was instantly understood and deconstructed with someone who understood culturally impacted values. Latinidad is not a monolith and we have different cultures, music, racialized experiences, migration narratives, languages, etc. Also, what we do share can lead to a deep sense of validation and being seen.
