Internet Pornography Bundle, International Edition


This fully resourced and integrated three-lesson set addresses the tricky subject of Internet Pornography for 15 to 18-year olds. Why are porn companies worth billions of dollars if the product is free? The lessons cover many issues including mental and physical health, relationships,  attainment, and its economic basis.

Pornography on Trial

Is pornography harmful? Pupils evaluate 8 pieces of real evidence for and against then present their conclusions and reasoning. No pornography is shown in this diversity friendly lesson. Using video interviews with former addicts and doctors, Twitter exchanges, World Health Organization guidance and more, this interactive lesson develops critical thinking and debating skills.

Love, Pornography and Relationships

What makes for a good relationship? What role does trust have in an intimate relationship? And, what are the risks and rewards of pornography use over time? No pornography is shown in this diversity friendly lesson.

Pornography & Mental Health

How do multi-billion dollar internet companies make money if their products are free? What impact does the pornography-influenced culture have on our body image? On our levels of attainment? On our mental health? How can we cut back? What are good alternative activities to help us be successful?

The Great Porn Experiment

In this lesson pupils will learn about the wide-ranging effects of internet pornography on the brain. It updates a popular TEDx talk The Great Porn Experiment by former science teacher Gary Wilson with the latest research that supports the assertions made in the original talk.


In the Internet Pornography Bundle, International Edition we have selected four of the most important themes.  You can help pupils consider more consciously how pornography might be influencing them and what to do as a result. Our lessons are: Pornography on Trial (teacher-led and group work versions); Love, Pornography and Relationships; Pornography and Mental Health and The Great Porn Experiment.  See individual lessons of the same title for more details.

The Reward Foundation developed the lessons with the assistance of a range of experts including more than 20 teachers, youth leaders, psychiatrists, doctors, psychologists, lawyers, police, including campus cops and many parents. We piloted these lessons in schools across the UK. One of the principal authors of the lessons was on the board of directors of the (American) Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health, 2016-2019.

Internet Pornography Bundle, International Edition allows you develop the discussion over four lessons. It lets pupils slowly unpack one of today’s most controversial cultural influences in a safe space. We give you practical, evidence-based materials to help you have confidence in teaching these subjects.
