We Need to Talk About Porn- a workshop for parents/guardians

This workshop is now sold out, please keep an eye on our website and social media for announcements of future workshops

SAPN is running this interactive workshop on Wednesday 5th September (6-8pm) aimed at empowering parents/guardians to have conversations about relationships, sex and pornography with their teens.

Registrations are open now, and please share with others who may be interested!

Porn is everywhere! It’s a very different age from when many of us were teenagers and technology has come a long way from having a sneaky look at a magazine in the bushes at school with your mates. If you have a smart phone, you can access pornography and statistics show that many young people do. But how do we talk about it? How do we even start a conversation that makes many of us feel uncomfortable? How do we frame it so our teens aren’t scared off sex or talking to us for good?

Based on work delivered in schools, this workshop will cover how to talk about healthy relationships, consent and how to get your young person to understand how the sex we see in pornography is very different to sex in the real world.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Talk to your teens about healthy relationships
  • Understand what consent is and why it’s so sexy
  • Identify the impacts of pornography on young people – in particular their ideas on relationships, body image and sex
  • Discuss and navigate how to respond to realistic scenarios
  • Feel prepared to have a conversation with your teen about pornography

Sex is a great part of life and we want to raise our children to be adults who have healthy and fulfilling relationships. Having these conversations is one practical step we can take to empower them to do so. Be brave and sign up, even if it makes you squirm just a little.
