Q&A - Impact of pornography on youth

Q&A

Q&A - Do you think sex health educators should try to build online content to deliver sexual health education during COVID-19 crisis?

 

Absolutely! If teachers and educators have the interest and capacity, it would be wonderful if they could build online content to deliver sex-ed lessons virtually. Beyond the Basics is a resource that can help support educators to do this with over 500 pages of activities, information, definitions and resources for educators and students. The topics covered in Beyond the Basics range from how to teach about health relationships and consent with a view to challenging gender norms to teaching puberty and reproduction from a gender neutral lens. There is also content on human and sexual rights, sexual orientation and gender identity, and how to help young people navigate sexuality and relationships in a digital age. Beyond the Basics is on sale this month (20% off with free shipping) if you use the code CSE2020 at check-out.

There are also incredible sexual health information and resources available online, including sex-ed homeschooling videos for tweens and teens on YouTube from Dr. Nadine Thornhill: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJqQvHjzDtjLEu9IjpUh68Q/playlists

And videos from Amaze (for kids of various ages) about all things bodies, sex and relationships:

 And finally, it must be said that during the COVID pandemic, sexual health centres across the country are busy revamping their lessons and developing new, virtual ways to reach young people. It is incredibly important that we support them and be vocal with our local decision-makers in how we want to see these services maintained (which also means ensuring increased funding for this crucial work).
