Adult sex education is education about sex for adults. Although commonly discussed in the context of youth sex education, sex education for adults is also important. Among other benefits, successful adult sex education can improve public health by reducing the spread of STIs. In fact, many resources for sex education intended for younger people are also often useful for older people. A notable example is The Guide to Getting it On by Paul Joannides, a book which provides a detailed overview of many topics related to sex and sexuality and is suitable for adults as well as youth thanks to its reference-like thoroughness.
Adult sex education is sometimes attacked on the basis that it is not education, but eroticization.
