Sex Ed by Porn Workshop

Sex Ed by Porn Workshop

Over the past decade or so, pornography has become both more mainstream and more hardcore. For young people growing up in this era of ever-new and accessible technology it is almost impossible to avoid exposure to pornography. The classroom or parent talk is now no match for porn – with its endless array of gyrating bodies, offering a quick, easy and anonymous sexual charge. Porn has become the default sexuality educator for young people growing up online. Consumption – particularly for young men – has become normalised.  And the ways young people understand and experience 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.

This workshop will help you understand how pornography is shaping young people’s sexual expectations and experiences and give you tools to help equip young people for a sexuality that is safe, respectful and fully consenting.

This training is led by Maree Crabbe, whose work on pornography, together with her colleague, David Corlett, includes conducting over 140 interviews with young people, academics, professionals who work with young people, performers, producers, directors, executives and agents from the pornography industry in Hungary and the US.
