Parent Info Session: Pornography & Young People Today

Friday, September 30, 2016

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 session will be led by Maree Crabbe, Coordinator of the community education project Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality. Maree is Co-Producer and Co-Director of the documentary film Love and Sex in an Age of Pornography, broadcast on SBS in Australia and in five other countries, and author of In The Picture – a whole school resource to assist secondary schools to address the influence of explicit sexual imagery. Maree’s articles on young people, sexuality and pornography have been published in online and print media. READ MORE
