SEXUALITY EDUCATOR - SPEAKER - AUTHOR
Liz Walker is Chair of PORN HARMS KIDS – a grassroots campaign that draws attention to the issue of exposure of children and young people to pornography in Australia.
Porn Harms Kids mobilises researchers, child development experts, youth welfare authorities, the medical profession, social and public policy sectors and members of the community including schools and parents, to work toward a comprehensive solution.
For a long time there has been huge resistance to having a decent conversation about the harms of pornography without being branded a prude for not embracing it. For instance, in the past, I’ve been told I’m ‘erotophobic’ (have a fear of anything erotic – best not tell my husband that!); and that I’m ‘potentially distributing anti-porn propaganda’ to teenagers. Let that sit with you for a minute… If discussing porn with teens is not anti, does that mean it’s supposed to be a pro-porn conversation? Hmmmm… If the answer isn’t clear-cut for you, maybe come back to this question at the end of this blog series.
