We’re excited to share a new article from them that features two of our team members, Arianna and Caro, with tips on  masturbation and exploration!

“Some people are absolute naturals when it comes to the art of self-pleasure. For others, learning how to masturbate can take time and practice—particularly for those of us living within the largely sex-negative confines of the U.S. Couple that with a massively inadequate and constantly attacked sex education system that rarely includes queer people and you get a whole lot of folks who don’t have access to resources on masturbation.

Luckily, learning how to pleasure yourself doesn’t have to be a scary topic. We’ve put together a guide on everything you need to know about masturbation, according to queer sexperts Arianna de la ManchaDr. Lexx Brown-James, and Caro Hernandez.”


At Healthy Teen Network, we believe every young person has the right to be who they are and love who they love. And we see you, the professionals and caring adults, helping them do this. We know you do your best when you're connected to great opportunities and resources. That's why we're here...to help make those connections and support you. Read more about us.
