Feminar #2 Sex Ed by Porn? Pornography, Young People and Sexuality
Tuesday 17 July, Traralgon.
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.
The 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.
