2019 is here! And while 2018 had some shining moments in the sex world, from CBD lube to a long overdue emphasis on the female orgasm, there’s a lot to look forward to in the coming year. Here are 10 sex trends that might be on the way.

Adult Sex Ed - for Everyone

Dr. Jill McDevitt is CalExotics’ resident sexologist and has been teaching adult sex education, almost exclusively to female attendees. But lately it's shifted, and men attendees have skyrocketed from 1% to 35%. “I imagine in 2019, with a bigger cultural emphasis on #metoo, body-positivity, self-care, and self-help, adults taking it upon themselves to enroll in workshops and courses – especially men – will be super big,” says McDevitt.

A Celebration of Sexuality Across the Lifespan

Joan Price, author of several books, including "Sex After Grief: Navigating Your Sexuality After the Loss of Your Beloved" (coming Summer 2019), hopes that 2019 will bring a trend of celebrating and normalizing older-age sexuality. “No need to panic that sex is over because our bodies, minds, and relationships start to change with aging,” says Price. “No, sex isn’t over – it’s the start of a new sexy stage in our lives. Let’s educate ourselves about the changes we can expect and how to overcome and compensate for them in order to go forward with lifelong sexual pleasure.”
