porn literacy should aim to reduce shame around porn use. Only by reducing shame can we begin to have conversations about how porn impacts our understanding of sexual consent, body image and self-esteem….

…To date, discussions on what porn literacy should entail tend to focus on the negative implications of porn use.

This was echoed in reports from the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Education and Skills on how to improve relationships and sexuality education in schools suggesting that we talk about the risks of porn use.

But there are a number of reasons why we should not only talk about the risks.

Allowing for discussions on the positive, negative and neutral outcomes can help young people to understand how personal beliefs vary about the appropriateness of sexual practices seen in porn.

Having this knowledge can help young people to become critical thinkers….

Priest [Father Martin McVeigh, above] attaches USB stick to laptop to give presentation to parents [of children at a primary school in County Tyrone] for Holy Communion. Laptop auto loads memory stick which shows gay porn images. Priest removes USB stick and runs out of room.
“Twenty minutes later he returned, he continued with the meeting and wrapped up by saying that the children get lots of money for their Holy Communion and should consider giving some of it to the church.”
What a recovery!
