Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality

 Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality is an Australian, community-based project that supports young people, parents, schools, government and the community sector to understand and address the influence of pornography.

The aim is to get people talking about pornography and its impact on young people, in order to:

 

  • encourage young people and the broader community to critique the messages about men, women and sex conveyed in mainstream pornography
  • promote understandings of gender and sex that are based on concepts such as mutual respect, equality, communication and consent
  • encourage and equip people across a broad range of levels of influence – from parents, teachers and youth workers to school and community leaders to senior government staff and politicians – to address the influence of pornography.
