I absolutely love Ted Talks, especially the ones on interesting facts and stories around sex, sexual health and relationships. Some topics covered in these ted talk topics may be seen as taboo, but they have such a strong message and you never know, you may even learn a thing or two !
Here is my top 6 Ted Talks on relationships and sexual health
1. The secret to desire in a long-term relationship by Esther Perel
Esther goes places where others will not go, she is straight forward, straight to the point, honest and knowledgeable. Esther explores taboo topics and looks into sexual desire within relationships and out of the relationship. If you like learning about why people behave the way they do, this ted talk is for you!
I found this Ted Talk absolutely fascinating and I hope you do too.
Be prepared to feel intrigued and uncomfortable all at the same time, with some humor thrown into the mix.

Dr Zhana developed the amazingly popular Casual Sex Project website, which is extremely popular where people write about their sexual experiences.
