Adult Sex Ed: What You Need to Know

If you’re like most folks, you probably think that sex is something that comes naturally. Who needs a guidebook for something we are hardwired to do, right? Wrong! The truth is, good lovers know and accept that lifelong learning is an essential component of great sex, which is the topic of today’s episode. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Mariah Freya, a sex coach and the co-founder of Beducated, an online platform for sex education, where she offers a vast library of resources for inclusive, comprehensive, medically accurate, and pleasure-focused sex education for adults.

In her early 20s, Mariah Freya faced the trauma of multiple sexual assaults. This challenging period marked by low libido and strained relationships became a turning point for her. Driven by her background as a social worker and the transformative experience she gained from therapy and sex-positive workshops, Mariah was inspired to become a sex coach.

Recognizing an evident gap in inclusive and accessible adult sex education, she, along with her partner Philipp Steinweber, launched Beducated, an online platform offering affordable and digestible teachings.

Dedicated to "bed-ucating" the world, Mariah stands as a beacon of resilience, advocating the belief that everyone, regardless of their life stage, deserves comprehensive, pleasure-based sex education.
