Unpacking Pornography: Support for Educators Workshop

Pornography is an important topic for educators and parents/carers to discuss with young people because of the potential effect it can have on their relationships and sexual health. Pornography has existed for centuries and may be accidentally or intentionally accessed by young people. New forms of technology and connection including mobile phones have increased the volume and accessibility of pornography.
