Sense About Sex is a group of therapists, researchers, sex educators, writers and activists working to promote good quality information about sex and sexuality.

Challenging myths and preventing panics

We’re committed to challenging the myths that circulate around every aspect of sex, and preventing the panics that these myths can create, using information which is well-grounded in research, theory and good practice. Please see our training page for what we can offer you and your organisation.

Detailed information resource

You can find detailed information at the Sense About Sex site on: communicating about sex, common problems, sex tips, basic anatomy, and porn. There is also detailed advice on how to find a professional, if you need to get help.

Our mission:

  • To engage, using compassionate criticism, with any sex advice, media reports, policies or practices which are problematic or unhelpful.
  • To encourage good practice in the area of sex advice and media reporting as well as in sex education, sexual health, and sex therapy.
  • To provide reassuring, balanced and accessible sex information and education.
