The point of this list is to cast a wide net of professionals who specialize in a variety of disciplines under the pillar of Sex Education.
Some of the people on this list have services that are available to individuals and/or couples, and some of them are available for larger groups and speaking events.
Some of them run their own clinics, and some of them are professors at universities.
Some of them have been in the business for decades, and some of them are new and emerging educators in their respective practices.
Most are in the USA, some are from Canada, Europe, and Australia.
The people on this list do not endorse Vibrating Tarot, nor is Vibrating Tarot affiliated with any of these educators in any way. This is simply a list of people in the field of sex education whom I have come across in my journey of designing this deck of sex toy themed Tarot cards, and I believe that each of them have something unique and dynamic to offer.
Many thanks go out to the dozens of sex bloggers out there who have compiled lists of their own favourite sex educators, from which I was able to find many new names in the field.
Did we miss anyone? Please help us out by recommending a name for our list.

I am not a sex educator and will never engage in discussing any sexual matters with anyone in the community. This list provides a variety of resources for people to get their questions answered by professionals.
This list is not perfect. I may have left some important voices out, or I may have included ones who are not currently as active as others. Please help me make this list better by making suggestions if you see anything that can be improved upon. I'm very happy to take guidance from those who are more informed than I am.
Thank you in advance for your help.
