The Impact of Pornography

The internet has transformed the way in which pornography is accessed. Today’s pornography is often violent, graphic and portrays distorted gender roles. Children and young people with access to the internet on any device – at home, at a friend’s place, at school or in any of our community spaces with Wi-Fi – are at risk of exposure. It’s now not a matter of ‘If’ a child will see pornography but ‘when’ and the when is getting younger and younger. 

Children and young peoples exposure to pornography is becoming a globally recognised public health crisis.

While pornography is not new, the nature and accessibility of today’s pornography has changed. There is a growing body of research showing that pornography is harming our children.

Pornography can be a sensitive topic and a difficult conversation to start for parents, carers, educators and other professionals. Our workshops provide up-to-date information, practical strategies and conversation starters to help you talk to children and young people about pornography and other sexual imagery.
