Repurposing Porn with Sarah Calleja

Updated: Nov 17, 2019

You asked for a juicy ep and you got it!


Our resident sexpert, Counselling Psychologist and Clinical Sexologist Sarah Calleja is back in a powerful episode, unpacking the common myths and fears around pornography and the impact it can have on kids.


Using Emily Rothman's Pornography Literacy programs as a launching pad, Sarah shares her thoughts on how we can use porn as a tool for teaching kids about some of the broader concepts around consent, respectful relationships and negotiating our own boundaries.


Instead of vilifying pornography and taking a negative approach, Sarah shows us how we can use it to empower our kids to become critical thinkers when inevitably exposed to explicit content, and turn it into a discussion about intimacy and relationships that will help them understand the context of the sexual world around them.


This episode will have you laughing and cringing but most importantly, leaving you with plenty of resources and practical ways to talk with your kids, friends or students about some of the more important conversations about life.
