Exploring topics ranging from sexting, revenge porn and the law to relationship boundaries and sexual stereotypes, this practical teaching resource facilitates discussion on the difficult issues surrounding pornography with young people aged 11-19.

At a time when pornography is more accessible than ever and many young people are inadvisably turning to pornography to learn about sex and relationships, this book explores what pornography is, how sex is portrayed in the media versus the reality, how pornography can affect sexual relationships, self-esteem and body image, and provides details of where young people can seek advice and support if they are worried. It includes full lesson plans, activities, photocopiable materials and clear information on how to implement the programme, including outlines for staff CPD sessions and parent workshops.

A comprehensive resource to use as part of PSHE or SRE sessions in schools or youth services, this book will be vital for PSHE teachers, senior leadership teams, pastoral care teams, school counsellors, youth workers, school nurses, and anyone who might be involved in sex education provision for young people.

This is a practical educational resource that teachers and youthworkers can use to teach young people about pornography. The lesson plans and activities aim to open up discussions, explore values and attitudes, build personal skills and give information about what can be a difficult topic for professionals to talk about.
