It’s time we talked about sexual strangulation

This dangerous practice, often promoted in mainstream pornography, has now found its way into many young people’s sexual expectations and experiences. It’s time we talked about this issue and helped young people to understand that there is no safe way to strangle.

It’s time we talked is currently developing a campaign about strangulation. If you’d like to stay informed about the progress of the campaign, please register your interest here.

Our Watch has released an important new report about pornography, young people, and preventing violence against women, with results from their survey with almost 2,000 Australian young people.

Our Watch: Pornography, Young People and Preventing Violence against Women background paper

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.

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.


When the sexual script we inherit – from partners, peers, pop culture & porn – eroticises #genderinequality & often, aggression, it increases the risk that women’s experiences of sex will fall somewhere on a continuum from unsatisfying to traumatic. (1/3)
