Let’s get linky.
The interwebs are just crawling with information about sex. Well, let me rephrase that to there is plenty of sex on the internet. Suffice it to say quantity is no indicator of quality when it comes to the topic of sex and the internet, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people talking about it in helpful, healthy ways.
AASECT introduced me to a number of blogs and bloggers who are contributing to the conversation about good, healthy sex. I thought it might be helpful to share some of these resources and to see if others have recommended reads as well.
Disclaimer: As always, a link is in no way an endorsement, but if you are looking for perspectives on sex and sexuality you may consider these voices a resource. Also, please note: Sexual content to follow.
