Let’s talk about porn

For Sexual Health Week this year, we're talking about porn.

We want to support people to have more open discussions about subjects related to porn, such as body image, consent, communication, safer sex...and the difference between fantasy and reality.

Through our work with parents, teachers and young people we've often found that the most successful way to have those discussions is through an open-minded, positive and non-judgemental approach to the topic.
