THE IMPACT OF PORNOGRAPHY ON OUT COMMUNITY (SESSION F)
At SAFFRON Sexual Assault Centre, we have seen a huge increase in the amount of clients that are reporting being sexually assaulted by someone they know to have a pornography addiction. We receive calls from parents and schools regarding pornography and its impact. We see a change in attitudes and beliefs around sexual relationships and violence and see the link that pornography has created. We will talk about how pornography has changed over time, the impact of early pornography viewing on brain development, pornography addiction, and how we as a community can work towards providing supports and information to those affected. We will also discuss how to have those difficult conversations about pornography and how to educate those you work with or in your circle of influence. This is something we need to be talking about.
