Pornhub Now Teaches Sex Ed. Seriously.

A surprisingly SFW resource for sexual health

The responsible adults in the room? They’re in porn.

Pornhub, one of the top 100 websites in the world that we have never ever looked at, just launched a sexual information project dubbed the Sexual Wellness Center. The new microsite offers advice on everything from basic sexual anatomy to STDs to tips to maintaining a healthy relationship.

It’s useful, mostly tasteful and rather forward-thinking.

Which is all well and good, but … Pornhub? How can the world’s largest peddler of adult entertainment also be a source of genuine sex education? “We understand the importance of educating the general public on a wide range of topics pertaining to sexual health and awareness, and saw an opportunity to deliver knowledge and understanding through renowned doctors and experts,” said Pornhub VP Corey Price in a press release.

To that end, the site is headed up by Dr. Laurie Betito, a clinical psychologist, broadcaster, TEDx Talks vet and author of The Sex Bible for People Over 50. And the articles here —“Happiness of Pleasure: Antidepressants and Sexual Dysfunction,” “You Now Have Fewer Reasons to Avoid Period Sex”—will certainly help you learn a thing or two.

That said, the Pornhub, uh, “voice” occasionally comes through.

Between features like “Trans 101” or a discussion on consent, you’ll find an article that begins “Have you ever felt like you really wanted to bang … ?”

Don’t ask us how we know.
