Sexuality educators must be steadfast about teaching in a most ethical and professional manner. Given the current cultural climate, lack of understanding about what services sexuality educators provide, and being an unregulated field, it is essential that sexuality educators establish credibility that indicates unequivocally that one is a trained (and perhaps certified) and principled teacher. It is crucial that ethics, a foundation of discerning right from wrong where no harm is caused to self, students, or any participants in our learning communities, is known and practiced. Although some ethical guidelines are similar to what our clinical colleagues’ practice, there are distinct differences and nuances that sexuality educators encounter.
