"The free, online, mainstream pornography that teenagers are most likely to see is a completely terrible form of sex education," says public health researcher Emily Rothman. She shares how her mission to end dating and sexual violence led her to create a pornography literacy program that helps teens learn about consent and respect— and invites us to think critically about sexually explicit media.
BROOKE LEARN COURSES
Talking about relationships and sex isn’t always easy. To help you, we have developed a range of high-quality, self-directed and mostly free-to-access courses to empower, support and encourage you to deliver effective relationships and sex education (RSE). These courses are aimed at those wanting to go into the care industry but they will also help you understand more about sexual health generally.
