Event Details

"Pornography has become a parenting issue we can’t afford to ignore..." –Maree Crabbe

Readily available and aggressively marketed online, exposure to hardcore pornography is now mainstream. Porn has become a default sex educator for many young people, with serious implications for their capacity to negotiate free and full consent, for mutual respect, sexual health, and gender equality.

The facilitator

This session will be led by Maree Crabbe, coordinator of the community education project Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality. Maree is co-producer and co-director of the documentary films Love and Sex in an Age of Pornography, broadcast on SBS in Australia and in six other countries, and The Porn Factor, recently broadcast on SBS. She is also author of In The Picture — a whole school resource to assist secondary schools to address the influence of explicit sexual imagery. Maree’s articles on young people, sexuality and pornography have been published in online and print media.

Who should attend

This event aims to build capacity of parents, educators, youth workers, health professionals and local communities to understand just how prevalent the use of pornography is and to equip them with tools and strategies to address its influence on young people.

YACVic is a child safe organisation. By attending these events, you agree to join us in our commitment to child safety
