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. -- Nick Luxmoore, Author of Horny and Hormonal Young People, Sex and the Anxieties of Sexuality
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. -- Julian Cohen
A much needed resource for all PSHE teachers. We Need to Talk about Pornography delivers a practical and engaging resource to address a sensitive and challenging subject with your students. -- Rachel Beddoe, Co-Author of Surviving Girlhood: Building Positive Relationships, Attitudes and Self-Esteem to Prevent Teenage Girl

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 Some children are not even offered the former and others are withdrawn by parents from the latter.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.

-- Adrienne Katz, Author, CPD accredited trainer, Director Bullying Intervention Group and Youthworks Consulting.
This is an excellent resource designed to inform and educate students about a subject that needs to be discussed openly within a safe environment. -- Barbara Band * School Library Association *
