Internet Pornography Bundle, Scottish Edition


The Reward Foundation has developed an integrated, three-lesson set on Internet Pornography for 15 to 18-year olds. The lessons cover aspects including mental and physical health, relationships, educational attainment, and its economic basis, to name a few. The resources will help teachers feel confident about discussing this subject matter.

Pornography on Trial, Scottish Edition

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, Scottish Edition

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, Scottish Edition

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, Scottish Edition

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, Scottish 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. The Scottish Edition aligns with the Curriculum for Excellence. We piloted these lessons in seven schools across Scotland.

The Internet Pornography Bundle, Scottish 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.
