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.
Love, Pornography and Relationships, Scottish Edition, is a fully-resourced, teacher-led lesson aimed at 15-18 year olds. The pack includes slides with embedded videos. It also has links to research papers where appropriate, and signposting to more resources about porn use. These will provide you with all the information you need to speak confidently about the subjects raised.
Pupils will consider the issues with a fun cartoon and a video interview with young guy who explains his experiences with porn use. Pupils will have ample opportunity to discuss important issues in a safe space. They work in pairs or small groups with feedback as a class discussion.
Love, Pornography and Relationships, Scottish Edition, is the second of our three lessons on Internet Pornography. It can be taught as a stand-alone lesson or in combination with the first lesson Pornography on Trial and followed by Pornography and Mental Health. All lessons are available together in a bundle, or as a superbundle with sexting lessons.
