Beducated Review — Getting Schooled Gets Sexy!

By Isabelle Uren / July 11, 2022

Is Beducated really “the sex ed you wish you’d had”?

Let’s find out!

First Up, What is Beducated?

Beducated was started by a couple who went on an intimate journey together to transform their love life after the honeymoon period wore off. And it paid off —they saw incredible results in their relationships. However, they found it wasn’t easy to access reliable information and certainly not in one place. With that in mind, they decided to fill that hole (sorry).

They see having great sex as a skill that required training, and they also think that “sexuality is the last frontier of personal development.” These are both sentiments I am really onboard with! Too often, we expect great sex to just happen, but in reality, it takes time and effort. I think it’s more than worth it though!

And that’s where Beducated come in — they aim to deliver tasteful, accessible courses on sex and intimacy to help couples and singles have a better sex and relationships.

How Does it Work?

Currently your subscription gets you access to more than 80 different courses by leading sex and relationship experts. The courses consist of short videos that you can watch on your laptop or phone. Some come with tasks and homework to help you put the knowledge into action or downloadable sheets, which I really liked.

You can take as many of the courses as you would like. Also, there is no time limit to complete them (as long as you still have an active subscription, of course).

When you sign up and create your account, you can select five topics that interest you, so they can suggest the most relevant courses. You can also skip this if you plan to just browse through and see what catches your eye. You also get the opportunity to select topics you don’t want to see, which I thought was a very nice touch, especially if you have certain topics that you find triggering. After filling in those brief details, you move on to the homepage. The set-up is somewhat similar to Netflix — you can scroll through different categories, such as popular, recommended for you, or picks based on your selected interests, to find a course that interests you.

What Did I Think of Beducated?

Usability

The website has a lovely design and is very easy to navigate. I like the sex positive, clean aesthetic — I can imaging it does a good job of putting you at ease if you feel a bit nervous about sex. I also thought it was really nice that you can filter the courses by how explicit they are. You can choose between explicit nudity (in which you see real genitals), mild nudity, and no nudity, which is ideal if you want to watch a video on your morning commute! I was watching them at work, but as you can imagine NSFW is not as applicable in the Bedbible office!

There is also an app available for people accessing the Beducated throught Firefox, Safari and iPhone. I stuck with using the regular website on Chrome as that’s what I know!

Course Selection

I was also very impressed by the broad range of courses. As well as courses on specific sexual activities (e.g. anal sex or cunnilingus), there are also a lot of courses on building connection and communication in relationships, sexual health, sexuality and kink. I felt there was a broad enough selection that almost anyone find a few relevant courses.

How Inclusive and Accessible Is Beducated?

I would say that Beducated is pretty inclusive. You can select LGBTQ+ in the categories to see relevant courses and there are courses on sexuality and consensual non-monogamy. The one area that I felt was lacking was sex and disability. As far as I could see, there aren’t any courses specifically focussing on sex and disability, which is a big shame as this is an area of sex education that is really lacking. I would love to see some course run by and for people with disabilities in this space! I also noticed that was one specific course for partnerships with two penis owners, but I couldn’t find an equivalent course for partnerships with two vulva owners. So that’s another thing that would be a great addition.

In terms of accessibility, Beducated have been adding closed captions to their videos so that people who are deaf or hard of hearing can access the courses. This should be standard on all courses, in my opinion. Unfortunately, it’s not always the case, so I was happy to see this here.

What About the Tone?

I think Beducated hit the nail on the head with the tone. The courses are informative without being austere or formal and the experts put you at ease with their manner. It also manages to keep the nudity erotic, informative and tasteful — something not many places get right!

Who Would I Recommend Beducated to?

I actually think almost anyone with an interest in sex and intimacy, whether that’s with yourself or with others, can benefit from Beducated. It really does fill in so many gaps that are missing in the embarrassment we call sex education! There’s also something for all levels of experience and ages, including a course about sex and the menopause.

In a Relationship

It can be a great way to reinvigorate your emotional and physical intimacy in a relationship as you can watch the videos together and spend time talking about and practicing the techniques. It can also be a nice way to talk about trying new things with your partner or asking them to do something differently. I think it can make it easier to ask for these things, as you are approaching it together as a team, rather than being one person instructing or asking. There is also a selection of courses about non-monogamy and open relationships.

For Singles

Beducated can empower you to explore your own body, pleasure responses, and attitudes surrounding sex and sexuality. Not only will this help you with your relationship with yourself, but it can also prepare you for having better partnered sex and relationships in the future!

Courses I Enjoyed

Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to watch all of the Beducated videos quite yet. However, of the ones I have seen, here are a few that I really enjoyed and think you will too!

Lingam Massage & Yoni Massage

I chose to watch these courses as I am currently studying and practicing Tantric Yoga but have not learned these techniques yet. These courses captured the physical, emotional, and energetic intimacy really well, and made it accessible to everyone.

I also think it challenged some myths and misconceptions we have about sex and what sex should or shouldn’t be, which I am absolutely all for!

Even if you don’t perform all of the things recommended in the course, there are some really beautiful ways to show your partner some love and try something more sensual together.

Road Map to Intimacy

I thought this was such a valuable course. I can highly recommend it to any couples that want to improve their relationship. The concepts were explained so clearly and with such compassion. The teachers also gave great examples and methods to practice the theory.
