How do you go about talking to kids about porn?

Now, a study has proven that 60 per cent of students say they watch porn to learn about sex. Update: Kids are learning about sex from porn these days, not from their parents. A study by the National Union of Students in the U.K. found that 60 per cent of college students say they watch porn for educational purposes, because their parents and schools just aren’t cutting it. The study found “60 per cent of students use porn to find out more about sex. 40 per cent cited porn as helping their understanding about sex, but overall almost three quarters agreed it provided unrealistic expectations.” Which is troubling, because porn isn’t real. But as The Cut pointed out, 75 per cent of the participants found porn to be unrealistic and so do many other forms of media that depict sex.

Covering issues such as sexual abuse/unwanted sex, social abuse/isolation and physical and emotional abuse, the posters aim to encourage young males not to accept unhealthy or abusive behaviours in their relationships. If the posters are to be used in a co-ed (mixed sex) context, we would expect that other posters be displayed giving similar messages to girls and young women. There are many such posters available from other organisations. The posters are available as high-resolution PDF files in A3 size, in 7 designs. They are ready to download, print off and display at your school or service. Healthy Sex Talk: Teaching Kids Consent, Ages 1-21.

A list of parenting action items, created in the hope that we can raise a generation of children who have less rape and sexual assault in their lives.

Healthy Sex Talk: Teaching Kids Consent, Ages 1-21

The ongoing horror of rape in the news, from Penn State to the young women raped and killed in India to Steubenville, has proven to be a wake-up call for many parents. We always knew that rape was a problem, but never before have we been so mobilized to create change. As writers, educators, and advocates of sex-positivity and healthy consent, the four of us have been inundated with requests from parents for advice on how to help create a future with less rape and sexual assault.

We believe parents can start educating children about consent and empowerment as early as 1 year old and continuing into the college years. It is our sincere hope that this education can help us raise empowered young adults who have empathy for others and a clear understanding of healthy consent. Sincerely, Julie Gills, Jamie Utt, Alyssa Royse and Joanna Schroeder 1.

It’s not hard. And it shouldn’t be. If you’re still struggling, just imagine instead of initiating sex, you’re making them a cup of tea.
