Pornography and its Harms

Pornography and its Harms (PDF ebook – 439th edition)

Edited by Healey, Justin

Nearly half of Australian children aged 9-16 years experience regular exposure to sexual images via the media, online and hand-held devices. Pornography does not exist in a digital vacuum, but rather within a broader social context which reinforces sexual attitudes, beliefs and s...tereotypes about gender, sexism, sexual objectification, unsafe sexual health practices and violence-supportive attitudes. What are the impacts of porn? How do young people navigate the risks and realities of intended and accidental exposure to explicit content? This resource sensitively handles topics including 'sexting' and image-based abuse, age verification, parental controls and communication with teens about pornography. The book also explores interventions and initiatives aimed at educators, parents and young people to address the harms of pornography through promotion of online safety practices, critical thinking and discussion. How do we deal with the harms of early access to pornography and in turn promote appropriate digital and sexual literacies for young people and their developing sexuality? Sex sells - but if it is so freely available and left to its own devices - at what price?
