Teen-Written Sex Education

Support Sex, Etc. Teen Writers!

Sex, Etc. magazine and its corresponding website, Sexetc.org, take a peer-to-peer approach in providing young people with medically accurate sexual health information. Our amazing staff of teen editors write all of the content, which provides honest, comprehensive information related to sexual and reproductive health, relationships, consent and much more. 

Our fundraiser will directly support the teens who write for Sex, Etc. by covering the cost of teen training and magazine production. Sex, Etc. teen writers undergo rigorous training on sexual health, media skills, writing, leadership and other important topics. Support for Sex, Etc. will empower teens to educate their peers on a range of sexual and reproductive health topics and help them make well-informed decisions about their health and relationships in high school and beyond. 

Why Donate to Sex, Etc.?

  1. Young people have the right to sex education. Sex, Etc.'s national reach allows young people all across the country to access the resources necessary to help them make informed decisions about their health and relationships, and our extensive digital presence ensures we meet young people where they are online.
  2. Sex, Etc., unlike sex education resources that are developed solely by adult educators and medical professionals, centers teens' voices and utilizes a unique peer-to-peer model to ensure that content in presented in a way that resonates with the young people. 
  3. Given the large amount of misleading or inaccurate information online, we need to ensure that as many young people as possible have access to reliable sex education resources such as Sex, Etc.

Hear from the Sex, Etc. Teen Writers 

"Support Answer because many schools across the country don't require medically accurate sex education, so it is crucial that we deliver this through Sex, Etc. When you support Answer, you're supporting a community of peers in an open dialogue about a crucial topic."

--Misha'el Richardson, 15, Sex, Etc. Teen Staff Writer

"Here are just some of the reasons why it is important to fund Sex, Etc.: Sex, Etc. provides the reliable and up-to-date sex education that some students just don;t get at school. Sex, Etc. is written by teens, for teens, so all of the articles are relatable. Sex, Etc. exposes readers to accurate information, so they get to choose what is healthy for themselves."

--Nathan Lam, 16, Sex, Etc. Teen Staff Writer

"My sex ed class was always phenomenal and I felt that all of the important material was covered. However, I know that others are not so lucky, and Sex, Etc. give that amazing level of education to teens across the globe, which is extremely important."
