Some of these courses are available in languages such as Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Russian, Magyarul, Czech, Chinese and Farsi.

The Archive of Sexology lists Sexology World-Wide, which is a directory of sexological institutions, organizations, resource centres, training programs, and scientific journals. One can also browse a directory of sexological training programs offered in various parts of the world. The Archive also houses an Online Library, an Encyclopaedia of Human Sexuality, an International Encyclopaedia of Sexuality, and publishes  a four-part survey of anthropological literature, covering all countries and all ethnic groups around the world titled Growing Up Sexually.
