Sex is in the news every day whether it’s recent data on STIs, a new method of birth control, a survey on sexual behavior, an outcry over sex education that dares to mention masturbation, or a story about another one of those politicians who love to regulate women’s bodies but clearly have no idea how they work (no, grown men, a baby does not actually grow in its mommy’s tummy).

Sex on Wednesday is a newsletter that will bring all of these stories right to your inbox at least once a week. It’s a must read for sex educators, sexual health brand managers, parents trying to raise sexually healthy kids, and anyone who just wants to know what’s going on in sex (face it we’re all voyeurs at heart). Stay informed with our “Just the Tip” summaries of research; dive into political and social analysis; and shake your head in horror as we tell politicians, TikTokers, and others who didn’t get the sex education they sorely needed that “That’s Not How It F*&*#ing Works.”
