Feminar #2 Sex Ed by Porn? 17 July 2019This workshop will assist participants to develop their understanding of pornography and its influence, and the frameworks and confidence to address the issues with young people.

Pornography has become both more mainstream and more hardcore. For young people growing up in this era of accessible technology it is almost impossible to avoid exposure to pornography. Gender and sex are being influenced by what they – or their partners or peers – observe in porn, with serious implications for their capacity to negotiate free and full consent, for mutual respect, for sexual health, and for gender equality.

Who should attend:
It is suitable for teachers, youth workers, nurses, psychologists and others involved in education, health promotion, violence prevention, support or counselling with young people, or in policy development in related areas.
