A Career in Sexology

A scene from the video series Slutever

Very few universities offer a degree in sexology, and despite sex being ubiquitous to humanity, it’s a comparatively new field of study. Vice points out:

Academically speaking, the boundaries of sexology are still somewhat vague. It can be generally defined as the study of sex and relationships, but that can touch on just about any discipline; from biology to business to sociology to engineering. The work of a sexologist could include working with trauma victims, assisting sex workers with legal challenges, educating doctors in developing nations, or designing sex toys. As a result, sexology is often seen as a multidisciplinary approach to sexual and intimate wellbeing.

Suppose you become a sexologist. Where can life take you with this education? Here are some possible career paths:

  • Pro Dom(me)/Switch
  • Sex Educator
  • Reproductive Health Educator
  • Sex Therapist
  • Sexological Bodyworker
  • Abortion Doula
  • Personal Trainer
  • Sex Toy Designer/Tester
  • Sex Work Advocate

Reaching out to every ethnicity, talking about the curriculum, talking about pleasure: these are all ways to take sex out of the shadows and into the world.
