About the event

Readily available and aggressively marketed online, exposure to hardcore pornography is now mainstream. Porn has become a default sex educator for many young people, with serious implications for their capacity to negotiate free and full consent, for mutual respect, sexual health, and gender equality.

This interactive workshop is for educators, youth workers, chaplains, counsellors, parents, and any adults who care about young people. It will support participants to understand:

  • pornography’s prevalence and nature
  • how pornography is impacting on young people
  • what we can do to address it.
