Change sex education to combat the effects of porn, say researchers

 

A Parliamentary Group focusing on family and child protection is to hear how changes are needed to sex education in the classroom to protect young people from the damaging effects of pornography.

Academics from The University of Nottingham will present the findings of their research into the effects of pornography on sexual development and behaviour to Parliamentarians, charities and members of the Working Party on the Family, part of the Lords and Commons Family and Child Protection Group, later this week.

The research, led by Professor Kevin Browne and colleagues in the University’s Centre for Forensic and Family Psychology, makes recommendations that sex education should place more emphasis on trusting and long-term relationships to challenge the images associated with internet porn.
