7 sex positive influencers you need to be following
Whether you just need your daily dose of sexy on the timeline, or you’re ready to learn more about sex positivity, here are the influencers who make it easy.
The magic of social media is that there is truly every kind of influencer imaginable. There are accounts that satisfy my love of food, my desire to travel while simultaneously lacking the funds and free time, and most importantly, my love of sex positivity.
Of course, sex positivity manifests differently in everyone so no two accounts look the same. A sex positive influencer can be anyone who’s using their platform for sex education or just embracing their personal sexuality in a healthy way. The common thread is that merely by existing, these accounts promote sexual diversity. Here are 7 sex positive influencers you absolutely have to follow:
