Anonymity is a great enabler for self expression, and Reddit is arguably the online world’s anonymous playground.

If there’s one particularly beautiful thing about Reddit, it’s the way it encourages communities to gather, sometimes because of the safety found in showing a username instead of a face. Of course, this can play out in both good and bad ways. Reddit has definitely fostered a space for trolls to worship Donald Trump, and given misogynists a bonding opportunity, but it’s also created a huge, supportive network of users that are just waiting to answer literally any question you have about anything. And that includes sex.

From empowering to just plain weird, we’ve picked out a few of the more interesting, educational, and tantalizing subreddits that have to do with the big wide world of sex.

While there are subreddits aplenty that offer endless images of sex positions, states of undress, and body types — unfortunately, predominately positioned for the male gaze — there are also a lot of community-driven subreddits that rely on their users to set the vibe. For this list, we’re more interested in those kinds of subreddits.

This list is by no means complete, if anything it’s just a sprinkling of the kinds of kink and conversation available on Reddit. Writing a list like this is kind of loaded in the first place; we want you to know that the choices below aren’t an endorsement of any one kind of play, fantasy, or community over any other, it’s just what we found that peaked our interest. Reddit is kind of like sex anyway — there’s always more to discover.

r/NSFW411

Subscriber count: 127,050

A good place to start. Maybe you’re looking for Christmas Hentai or videos of synchronized orgasms? NSFW411 is a great place to go for all your very specific porn requests. Write a query, and porn enthusiasts will do their best to direct you to the right subreddit. Or scroll through the thousands of people wondering if there’s a thread for their favorite kink.

r/SexToys

Subscriber count: 28,831

Yup, just what it sounds like. Discussion threads, reviews, and answers to questions about probably every sex toy that exists in the universe.

r/Glitch_Porn

Subscriber count: 3,712 readers

I really like this subreddit; users here have taken common pornographic images and video and “glitched” them. In other words, they’ve distorted the visuals to make something new, beautiful, and often times still erotic. There’s a lot of cool stuff to look at and watch in this subbreddit.

r/PillowTalkAudio

Subscriber count: 11,71337

This is an audio-centric subreddit devoted to home recordings of individuals or couples engaging in pillow talk (cute, cuddly conversation and general niceties), or vanilla, erotic talk, along with some ASMR. Some of the audio here describe entire scenarios that you can listen along to, (“Come Camping With Me? Friends to Lovers,” for example. There are also a lot of audio files that are just meant to be soothing like, “Long Day? Here’s a Massage (ASMR),” and themes in multiple audio files like “Comfort for self-harm,” “Comfort for Panic Attacks,” and “Quiet talk.”

r/BDSMCommunity

Subscriber count: 78,557

This is the subreddit for everything BDSM. Topics of discussion include “Explaining BDSM or handling criticism related to it,” to “Need help coming up with weekly challenges for my locked sub.”

r/DirtyPenPals

Subscriber count: 105,453

This subreddit exists to connect users for “creative writing and erotic conversation.” If you are looking to strike up a particular scenario on the page, this is probably the place for you.

r/Dyke

Subscriber count: 22,617

A lot of the girl-on-girl porn on mainstream sites is awkwardly over-acted and straight up not intended for a gay, female audience. This subreddit is tries to be opposite of that. It’s a “sex-positive, trans-positive, kink-positive” space full of imagery, comics, and curated porn vids meant to be enjoyed by a female-identifying audience.

r/TopsAndBottoms

Subscriber count: 19,254

This is a great forum for men to talk — and learn — about gay sex. One of the rules here is “No politics and religion and shit,” so the discussion here is just sex, sex, sex. Which is great! Almost all of us could stand to learn more about sex.

r/SexOver30

Subscriber count: 26,763

Touting itself as the subreddit that’s “Enabling the over thirty crowd to try everything from butt plugs to bitmoji since 2015!” conversation here a lot of legit questions that plenty of people have about their sex life, (“Do you show your face in nudes?” “Improving Sex in Second Marriage?”) Basically, this is organized to be an easy and accessible space for sharing and learning, especially for older folks, and also promotes itself as being queer-pos.

r/LadyBonersGoneCuddly

Subscriber count: 38,307

This is just a very nice subreddit. While r/LadyBoners is a little bit basic — although that’s not necessarily a bad thing — this spin-off subreddit is just amateur photos of men hanging out with cute animals. Because why not?

r/rule34

Subscriber count: 294,436

Here you will find every erotic depiction of a cartoon character to grace the internet. Teen Titans, Pokemon, Zelda, ad nauseum… it’s all here. Unfortunately, much of the content in this subreddit overwhelmingly panders to the male gaze.

r/consenticles

26,094 readers

Tentacle porn of the enjoying, consent-based variety. Travel here if you have a “love of erotica and porn of all things squiggly, grabby, and penetrating,” as the subreddit description goes. If you’re looking for anything other than female animated characters, however, you’re out of luck here.

Honorable mention goes to: r/ScaryBilbo (click if you dare) and r/NSFWSpacePorn, which hasn’t been updated in a few years.
