One of the most effective ways that students can be reached is through school presentations that provide educational, engaging, and impactful experiences that they’ll talk about for years afterward.
And if you’re looking for school presentation ideas, or you want to host a live presentation that will make a tangible impact, we invite you to consider having an age-appropriate event that educates on the harmful effects of porn.
Why should you consider a school presentation on porn?
Studies show that most young people today have been exposed to porn by age 13, and a nationally representative survey of U.S. teens shows 84.4% of males and 57% of females ages 14-18 have viewed porn.
It’s common knowledge that porn is incredibly unrealistic and often features toxic ideals, yet survey results showed that over half of 11 to 16-year-old boys (53%) and over a third of 11 to 16-year-old girls (39%) reported believing that pornography was a realistic depiction of sex. Also, 44% of boys who watched porn reported that online pornography gave them ideas about the type of sex they wanted to try.
Is there anything parents, teachers, or community leaders can do to help adolescents develop critical thinking when it comes to issues regarding pornography?
Absolutely. Here’s why you should consider booking a Fight the New Drug live presentation for your school, youth, or community event.
The benefits of a youth presentation on porn
Now more than ever before, porn has become normalized in our digital world. Because of this, awareness and education on its well-documented negative impacts has become increasingly important.
Research suggests that school staff and administrators see pornography as a serious issue that affects their school’s cultural climate surrounding sexual violence, and that education programs on porn help them feel more confident in addressing the issue and preventing sexual harassment.
We take a three-dimensional approach to raising awareness on the harmful effects of pornography in society, so in addition to creating tools and resources for our global supporter base to share, we also love getting face to face with people in their schools and cities to provide research-backed information on this important issue.
Fight the New Drug’s age-appropriate and engaging presentations highlight research from respected academic institutions that demonstrates significant impacts of porn consumption for individuals, relationships, and society.
Offering presentations customized for each audience, all Fight the New Drug presentations align with our mission as a non-religious and non-legislative organization educating with science, facts, and personal accounts.
We can provide engaging, empowering, and educational presentations for these types of audiences:
- Middle School/Junior High
- High School
Consider booking Fight the New Drug for your next live school presentation, or community education event.
What are the learning outcomes?
Every school, community, parent, or conference presentation will equip attendees with comprehensive, age-appropriate information about:
- How porn impacts the brain
- How porn can harm relationships
- How porn affects society
- Healthy conversations about porn
- Free resources—educational and recovery
We empower audiences to make educated decisions that can better equip them to love themselves, have healthy relationships, and make a positive difference in the world.
