By now we know that most information that people have about sex and sexual health is self-achieved. The resources, however, are mostly concerning. Porn and random sites cannot always be trusted – and the lack of basic knowledge can definitely make things weird, especially during “the act”. Imagine getting a biology lesson while having sex. Doesn’t sound so sexy, right?
