TikTok Sex Ed!
By Leslie Massicotte, Teens Climb High Coordinator
With all that time we’re spending on TikTok… did you know that you can get factual, fun, and comprehensive sexuality information on certain TikTok channels?
Well, you can! Teens Climb High at Compass Center is here with some suggestions for TikTok channels to follow to get a bunch of great info you need on sexual health. Click on the images to visit their pages!
1. Dr. Jennifer Lincoln
This channel is what inspired my search for other TikTok sex ed opportunities. Dr. Lincoln is a gynecologist who shares really great info on contraceptive options, periods, and lots more sexual health info.
2. Peer Health Exchange
This is a fun channel with videos for youth by youth explaining things like how to use a dental dam, what emergency contraception is, and mental health.
3. Dr. Staci Tanouye
Dr. Tanouye is an OBGYN with awesome info on vulvas and vaginas, puberty, and contraceptive options.
4. Protection Connection
This is hilarious. The person behind Protection Connection tries putting condoms on pretty much any household object you can think of, including rolled up yoga mats, eggplants, and barbells, to see if it will fit. (Spoiler alert: it always does!)
5. Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest
Check out one of Planned Parenthood’s TikTok channels for info on contraceptives and sexual health--this one has lots of content in Spanish!
Have fun watching!
