It’s Only Banter: consent, sexting, pornography & the media

We are starting to understand that there is far more to comprehensive sex education than merely condom demos and a warning about STIs. Stories around consent, incidents of slut shaming and examples of rape culture are a permanent feature of social media and the tabloid press – but are they an issue or merely banter?

How do you balance flirting and innocent behaviours from sexual harassment and abuse? Where is the line and is there any grey areas when it comes to consent?

Aim: For professionals to be better prepared to support young people to develop and maintain heathy relationships in a digital world; with a specific focus around issues of consent, sexting and pornography.

By the end of the training participants will:

  • Have a greater understanding of where young people receive their messages about Relationships and sex from and how these inform their attitudes.
  • Explore issues around peer-to-peer exploitation
  • Understand why some people may access pornography and the law surrounding it
  • Have a greater understanding of sexting as a means of flirting and as a means of abuse
  • Explore issues of consent, the law and the media
  • Have a range of resources to help explore and raise awareness of these issues with young people
