What does it
Seeing porn might seem normal. But what does porn say? Who makes it and why? And what does it all mean for you?
What do parents need to know about porn? How can you support your child in this new reality of pervasive porn?
Pornography has become an issue schools can’t afford to ignore. How can your school equip students for healthy, safe and respectful relationships in the 21st century?
What does the mainstreaming of porn mean for your organisation? How can you support young people, parents and schools to address porn’s influence?
Pornography is now the most prominent sexuality educator for many young people. Most young people discover porn well before they encounter sex – perhaps even before they have kissed or held a partner.
Who are we?
It’s time we talked (formerly Reality & Risk) is a violence prevention project that supports young people, parents, schools, government and the community sector to understand and address the influence of pornography.
