The issue of whether pornography constitutes a "public health crisis" is hotly contested. Viewers will gain a greater level of confidence to articulate why pornography meets these criteria and be better informed to engage their spheres of influence for change. This 30-minute presentation focusses on the following:
  • Unpack the intention of porn literacy education, which typically aims to help (young) people interpret and make sense of sexually explicit content through the lens of values, consent, violence awareness prevention, and gender roles. Those who may adopt this approach includes everyone from sexuality educators, academics, health teachers, and pro-porn supporters. It often fails to acknowledge the systemic harms of pornography on society and the known impacts of porn on the brain–including addiction and neuroscience research.
  • Explain the shortfalls of porn literacy education and explore the importance of broadening the lens to equip educators, decision-makers, and the community with a greater understanding of the scope of pornography impacts.
  • Expose the latest attempt to normalise porn consumption among teens by pushing the porn literacy approach.
  • Presenting the public health focussed alternative. Critical Porn Analysis provides an educational response to the researched harms of pornography as a public health crisis. It moves beyond the micro focus of how the individual interacts with pornographic content to consider a more holistic approach on how porn's proliferation and ease of access impacts the health & wellbeing of individuals, relationships, families, communities, and cultures.

Suitable for educators, parents, wellbeing professionals and concerned community members. We grant permissions to share this presentation with staff for professional development sessions.
