YouTubers Dishing Out Awesome Sex Advice
Let's talk about sex (baby).
The internet can be a dark and scary place when it comes to talking about sex.
Between leaked naked selfies, access to unhealthy amounts of free porn and the oh-so-grim YouTube comment section, it can sometimes feel as if attitudes towards sex are desperately lacking in positivity. So, we want to celebrate a few rad individuals who are working to cheer up the cyber universe and share their top tips for a happy, healthy sex life.
Don’t get us wrong - we love a make-up tutorial, drugstore haul or bants-filled prank vid as much as the next person, but we get extra excited when internet stars use their mega reach to talk about stuff that’s a bit more serious.
This gorgeous lot have all taken it upon themselves to dish out some incredibly valuable advice and guidance (as well as sharing a few personal stories) with their many, many, MANY subscribers.
Laci is the undisputed queen of YouTube sex positivity, doling out advice on everything from masturbation to BDSM. She says she makes her videos “to help people learn about sexuality & bodies so they can enjoy them” which we think is pretty much the coolest reason to be on the internet ever.
She also wrote an open letter to fellow YouTuber Sam Pepper, calling him out on his outrageously disturbing “Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank” video (which has since been deleted) and accusing him of publicly violating and upsetting women in the street in the name of ‘comedy’. The letter has been signed by YouTube heavyweights including Tyler Oakley, Mamrie Hart and John Green (go check out the full list – it’s amazing). Go girl.
YouTuber-turned-LEGITIMATE-POP-STAR Troye Sivan doesn’t just make luscious tunes and tour the world. Oh no. He’s also taken it upon himself to preach the good message of safe, happy and healthy sex to his 4.5 million subscribers.
In his vid ‘How To Have Sex. Safely!’ Troye gives a full lesson on how to stay safe when you’re hooking up, covering everything from how and where to buy condoms, to how to actually put on one (“roll it right on with the goopy side facing outwards”). We heart Troye.
When she’s not slaying the game with her YouTube channel, Grace is busy working to help YOU GUYS get the lowdown on the down below. Geddit?
Grace is the host of our very own show ‘Sex Squad,’ where she and a host of celeb pals chat through everything from losing your virginity to learning to feel good about your bod when you’re gettin' busy. Seriously, nothing is off limits with this gang.
She’s a ground-breaking slam poet and she’s only eighteen years old. Savannah rose to fame when she wrote a damning response to Vine star Nash Grier’s wholly questionable video ‘What Guys Look For In Girls’, where he advised his young fanbase to shave their legs and “be small” in order to get a boy’s interest. Oh dear.
Savannah hit back at Grier with her poem, calmly and eloquently picking apart his words and highlighting the self-esteem so many young girls face when it comes to sex and dating. “You don’t live to meet the credentials established by a madman. You’re a goddamned treasure whether you want to believe it or not” she said.
Make sure you check out her more recent stuff too. With vid titles like ‘Virginity Is Stupid’ and ‘Hi, I’m A Slut,’ this is one you won’t want to miss.
Is if it wasn’t enough that Sammi was our ultimate in style goals (and dog goals and boyfriend goals and maternity wear goals), she’s also totally incredible at giving support and advice to her 1.8 million fans.
We are obsessed with her series of vids called ‘Girl Talk’ where she (and sometimes a YouTube mate) sit down and hash out all the things you’ve always wanted to talk about when it comes to sex.
24-year-old Joey is bona fide YouTube royalty. His 7 million subscribers are regularly treated to music videos, hilarious challenges and collabs with his fellow vloggers, but he’s also known for his Q&As, where he shares guidance on everything from career to falling in love to sex.
“It’s important to communicate what your boundaries are with whoever is pushing those boundaries…it’s important to have self-respect!”. So speaks Joey Graceffa. Pay attention, he is very wise.
You may recognise Hannah from her awesome partnership with Durex (or the articles she’s written for MTV Staying Alive in the past) and she’s still one of our all-time favourite British YouTubers. She always manages to give amazing advice about sex, whilst making us snort-laugh at the same time.
She chats about topics ranging from sexual experimentation to her favourite sex toys, and is never afraid to throw an embarrassing personal anecdote in there for fun as well.
Beauty, fashion and lifestyle vlogger Meghan has always been open with her 2.3 million subscribers, posting videos about her struggles with depression and the long-term effects from the bullying she faced at school alongside her hilarious Q&As.
Last year she shared an amazing, hilarious, heartfelt video titled ‘SEX ADVICE WITH MY MOM’, where Rienks and her outspoken mama answered sex questions from viewers, including what contraception to use (clue: whatever you want) and if anal is necessary (clue: it is not, but go for it if you want to do it). Meghan has said that “I would be doing you and humanity a disservice if I didn’t use my voice to speak for something I really, really, really believe in”. We love her.
Everyone's sex life is different, which is why it's great there are so many great sex vloggers (and bloggers out there). Have we missed your fave? Let us know @MTVUK!
