Nick Luxmoore, Author of Horny and Hormonal Young People, Sex and the Anxieties of Sexuality
This is such an important subject! Pornography threatens the quality, not only of young people's sexual relationships, but of all their relationships. This book is well-informed, responsible, challenging and full of helpful ideas for teachers and youth workers to use.
We need to help young people make sense of porn and to question it, rather than leave their sex and relationships education to the pornographers. This excellent teaching pack contains a wide range of group learning activities covering what porn is, the impact it can have, consensual and appropriate relationships, body image, sexting and online bullying. Guidance and practical tips are given so secondary teachers and youth workers can be confident about dealing with what can be an emotive subject and help young people keep safe, maintain their self respect and behave in caring ways towards others. Highly recommended.

Rogers has written an essential book that has a place in every school, youth service or care setting. PSHE needs updating in today's digital world where access to pornography is two clicks away and SRE strangely omits emotional responses. Some children are not even offered the former and others are withdrawn by parents from the latter. So teens often resort to friends, the internet and pornography itself for the information they need. Here is a sensitive guide to tackle current concerns from porn itself to relationship break-ups, body image, even why people have sex. Rogers also usefully addresses supporting LGBT young people and those with additional needs. She gives structure and assurance to a teacher addressing these topics with clear advice and innovative ideas, within a clear legal and curriculum framework. Lesson materials cover the three key skills required for effective learning, knowledge, attitudes and skills. Timely and much needed, this is a thoughtful answer to an urgent gap in education enabling young people to develop positive relationships and maintain emotional wellbeing.
