Porn can give unrealistic messages about what sex is like… It seems that porn’s everywhere. It’s really easy to access – even when you’re not looking for it!

And it’s accepted that lots of people use it, particularly guys, but also some girls. But, while it might seem cool or exciting or turn you on sexually, porn is not reality, and it can impact in a range of ways that aren’t all good – like what you expect sex to be like, what turns you on, and how you think about men and women… Porn can shape sexual tastes – and expectations. Just as we can acquire a taste for a particular food or drink – even one that we initially don’t like – we also can develop sexual tastes. When someone uses porn – particularly when they use it regularly to get off – they can learn to link what they see with arousal and pleasure.

But much of what is shown in porn doesn’t reflect what many people actually enjoy. Porn bodies are not normal. Porn sex is not safe sex. Porn is a performance. Sex is not a performance.
