PORN might be sexy, but it's often not like real-life sex!
How are young people supposed to know this when porn is not discussed in the school curriculum, and often a conversation parents would rather avoid?
It's rare to see safe sex practiced in porn, or communication between partners, and can lead to viewers feeling insecure about their bodies. It tends to present a very narrow depiction of what sex is, of what sexy is, of what is normal.
Yet porn can also be exciting and allow people to build confidence in their bodies, their sexualities and understand pleasure.
Porn can't be dismissed as BAD or GOOD; teen abstinence is not the solution, nor is shaming young people for curiosity.
We at Sexpression want to open up communication and allow young people to make informed choices with their bodies.
The internet is full of places to find better information about porn that maybe you could share with young people --- BishUK, pornastherapy.com and makelovenotporn.com are a few places to start!
How did you first learn about sex, and what advice would you give your younger self?
