‘We need to talk about porn’

Workshops for young people

Internet pornography is highly accessible, free and normalises numerous unhealthy ideas about sex and relationships. This programme is aimed at supplying young people with the tools to think critically about images they see in the media; focussing specifically on the messages depicted in pornography. The workshop discusses healthy relationships, consent, the messages found in pornography and the impacts these messages have on sex and relationships.

Workshops for staff, parents and whānau

This interactive workshop is aimed at empowering parents and others working or living with teens to have conversations about relationships, sex and pornography with their teens. These conversations can be tricky to navigate and we aim to provide an informal and safe environment where we can use practical tools to engage young people in these awkward conversations. This workshop will cover how to talk about healthy relationships, consent and how to get young people to understand how the sex we see in pornography is very different to sex in the real world.
