So, why are we talking about porn?
Porn’s everywhere – whether you see it over a mate’s shoulder, in a pop up or watch it regularly on your phone, it’s just a click away.

So what’s the big deal with it?
Back in the day, most sex ed was learnt through your ‘village’ – at school, at home or through friends at school. But nowadays, most young people learn more about sex from porn. So with giant porn companies taking over as a sex ed teacher, it’s probably time we actually started talking and asking some important questions.
