California’s progressive sex education upsets some parents, but students nationwide can find much more explicit content online.

Nearly a quarter of teens and young adults trust search engines more than any other source to learn about sex and reproductive health, according to a study done by the group TechSex a few years ago.

That’s why a market has popped up for social media influencers and other young adults who are openly talking about sex online.
