Kia ora and thank you for joining the conversation!
The porn landscape has changed dramatically for young people over the last five years shaping youth sexual culture in new and diverse ways.
Porn has become a primary sex educator for young people (7,19), influencing youth sexual culture in new ways – and youth health services are starting to see a range of porn related issues in the workplace.
It’s important health professionals are equipped to be part of the porn conversation with young people in Aotearoa. This looks like… having porn knowledge and skills; being equipped with tools to assess porn related wellbeing issues; having healthy porn conversations and incorporating porn into existing workplace frameworks and practices; and helping build porn literacy in young people.
