Porn from a Sex Ed Perspective: A Guide to Sexually Explicit and Educational Adult Films

We’re often asked for recommendations of adult videos that teach sex ed. While videos can’t replace a comprehensive sexual health education, many people seek out visual demonstrations of sex acts, techniques, and communication. We’ve curated an Edu-Porn collection of sex ed guides, but it hardly scratches the surface of what’s available in the world of sex ed porn.

Here’s a (non-exhaustive!) list of producers who place sexual education at the forefront of their films.

Old School Classics

Female filmmakers and sex educators in the 1980s thru early 2000’s created films showcasing female-led pleasure and sex techniques. Candida Royalle, Annie Sprinkle, Deborah Sundahl, Fatale Media, and Cleo DuBois are among many early producers. Their videos, and series like Nina Hartley’s Guide to Sex Series and Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guides provide a wealth of relevant sexual health information in addition to hot sex.

We recommend: Debbie Sundahl’s How to Female Ejaculate, The Pain Game, and Bend Over Boyfriend

New School Top Hits

Contemporary sex ed adult projects cover the basics and sometimes branch out to less conventional lessons. SexSchoolHub releases videos about porn literacy and consent. OMG Yes offers a close-up on explicit clitoral stimulation, while F*ck Yes Series bridges the gap between the kinds of sex you might see in porn vs the kind you might see on TV. jessica drake’s WICKED Guide to Sex offers a series with recent releases specific to plus size bodies and senior sex. AltPorn4U has even released a few alt sex ed titles, including rarely discussed body-modification in split tongue cunnilingus.

We recommend: Porn 101, Kissing, Split Tongue Cunnilingus

Kink Specific

Several BDSM projects aim to inform viewers on safety and techniques behind risk aware consensual kink. A few include KinkAcademy, Kink University, and OhYesPlease.org by Karada House.

We recommend: BDSM, Tie Me Up: Bondage Play Tips and Torments

Docu-Porn

Pairing interviews with explicit examples, Madison Young produced a number of titles, including Pregnant with Desire about sex and pregnancy. In Ciné Sinclaire‘s GUSH, a man describes his path to non-ejaculatory orgasm, and shows us. Barbara Carrellas demonstrates Erotic Awakening massage for trans and non-binary people in Transcendent Bodies. Toby Hill-Meyer’s Doing it Ourselves: Trans Women Porn Project pairs interview and sex scenes that are honest and heartfelt.

We recommend: GUSH, Transcendent Bodies, Doing It Ourselves

Sex-Ed Supplements

Adult film studios recognize the importance of sexual health information, even if their own projects are not centered on sex ed. Many create supplemental projects to bridge the gap between entertainment and education.

CrashPadSeries.com offers a queer sexual health and resource guide and invites sex educators to review episodes and share advice that ranges from safety tips to sex toys. The studio allows curious members to watch cast and crew create scenes in real-time through a livestream voyeur cam. Each episode has a behind the scenes video where performers discuss safer sex practices and the challenges and rewards of filming porn.

LUST produces a Lust Ed series where guest performers and educators cover various sex topics. Notable examples includes Sexpert Tyomi and adult performers/educators Jet Setting Jasmine and King Noire. The site also offers “The Porn Conversation” book for parental porn literacy and the Lust Zine with up-to-date articles.

Sssh.com runs a #SexTalkTuesday Twitter discussion on various topics related to pornography, sexual health, consent, and more. Their site contains a lively membership and hosts forums and watch parties to discuss sexy videos.

Performers’ first serious experiences within sexual health and pleasure can happen when they enter the adult film industry. Organizations seek to help new performers such as the Free Speech Coalition’s INSPIRE project (FSC is the adult industry trade organization) and Adult Performer Advocacy Committee. Performers sometimes share information on their own blogs and social media accounts.

Bespoke Content

Performers also create content on subscription services and distribution channels. Some specialize in sexual health, such as Raquel Savage and the Kink Media Group’s OnlyFans account where uncensored episodes on vaginal anatomy and more are available for purchase. If viewers want explicit tips about sex from their favorite stars, a custom video could be a solution.

Sex by Example

Many films show positive examples of sexuality by demonstrating the mechanics, consent and negotiation, or showing bodies and desires that are not typically represented. While a film might not have been intended to educate about a specific sexual subject, it might still have educational merit.

Examples include T-Wood Pictures where trans and cis gay men demonstrate safer sex barriers. AORTA Films and Insatiable Pictures present a diverse cast in imaginative and playful queer and kink scenes. Himeros presents tender scenes not often represented in gay porn, such as in Worship Me and presents a Guided Masturbation film. Look out for their video Role Play Part III featuring disabled porn star Andrew Gurza. Also monumental in its depiction of queer desire and disability representation is Loree Erickson’s WANT. Queer porn CrashPadSeries by Shine Louise Houston invites performers to call the shots and casts diverse talent spanning ability, age, size, race, and gender. The studio also produced a sex ed cross-over with Guide to Fisting, a previously untouched topic in sex ed video guides.

Films that aim to depict cinematic realistic sex include work by Blue Artichoke Films, Petra Joy, AltShiftXXX, and Ms. Naughty’s Bright Desire (check out Trinity). Blk Touch beautifully showcases Black couples. Royale Fetish Films features movies by its reigning couple King Noire and Jet Setting Jasmine. For Black femme and non-binary queer love, check out BeyonDeep. All-Black studios are still a rarity in the industry so if you like what you see, subscribe!

Amateur videos brings the viewer into the bedroom with homemade porn on sites like MakeLoveNotPorn and Lustery.

High-art and experimental porn can provide illumination, eschewing the sexual script and defying viewer expectations. Four Chambers approaches erotic art with videos that are emotionally complex and viscerally explicit. Morgana Muses Labia of Love is a playful display of labia that is fun and worth celebrating.

We recommend: Labia of Love, Skin.Like.Sun., The Fantasy Project.

Keeping in mind that any porn can be viewed from the perspective of its merits on sexual health and pleasure, the films from PinkLabel.tv‘s own catalogue provide a treasure trove of sexual movies to explore. There are many, many wonderful films that could have appeared on this page. Those which appear in this post is hardly an exhaustive list, as there is a wide world of porn and porn creators. We hope this will guide new viewers in a helpful direction on their journey of sexual discovery and porn literacy.
