Love to learn about sex, in any capacity? A few lucky cities around the U.S. have sex education academies. Adults can attend classes to learn about different aspects of sexuality, which are welcome to all orientations.

Tickets are $25, and are available to purchase in the weeks leading to each class. It’s highly recommended you purchase them ahead of time. Classes run around 90 minutes.

The Los Angeles Academy of Sex Education begins this year’s slate of classes next Monday on Feb. 2nd (full disclosure: I volunteer there), and I wanted to look at some other sex education academies around the country.
