Porn: What counts as healthy?

Where
Manning Bar

Manning Road, Camperdown NSW 2050
When

Tuesday 4 April 2023 from 8pm to 9pm

Watching pornography can help healthy sexual development – many people want to look at some online, so where do you start?

Firstly, consider a variety of sexual practices – feminist porn, queer porn, porn for couples, or porn to watch alone. A range of body types would be nice. How about porn that shows the negotiation of consent and focuses on the pleasure of everybody on screen? Have you thought about ethical production?

Alan McKee has worked with a team of international experts on sexual health, sex education and pornography. Join him to discuss how we can approach ubiquitous online porn responsibly.
