Youth and Porn:
Understanding and Navigating the Issues
—Resources for Health Professionals—

Kia ora and welcome! The young people of Aotearoa are facing a new pornography (porn) landscape, and with high exposure and unlimited access, porn is influencing youth sexual culture in new and diverse ways. Young people tell us they have varied views and sometimes concerning experiences around porn and that they need, and want, better conversations, information, and support.

Youth and Porn Navigating the Issues has been developed to equip health professionals to better understand youth and porn issues and positively integrate this knowledge into their workplace practice. The kit includes 12 resources across three progressive skills. If you are new to this conversation, it can help to work through each skill, or if you are wanting specific information, please just head directly to the resource you need.
