Pornography is a major concern for many teachers and parents.
Teens can access sexual images much more easily than ever before!
With all the misinformation that pornography and hyper-sexual media can spread, this game targets core issues and aims to help teens understand that what they see, may not always be “real”.
This program gives them the Media Literacy Tools to challenge ideas of what sex “should” be and harmful perceptions of body image.
What’s Real? – Sexuality on the Net is a Yes? No? Game
by Stephanie Mitelman, M.A., CSE, AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator
Concept: This game is an overview of some of the issues as regards viewing pornography and other hyper-sexual media.
The instructor will read out a statement and students hold up the Yes or No side of the card which reflects what they think about the declaration.
In the game students vote on statements that include:
- if people are always ready for sex,
- worries about contraception and STI prevention
- if everyone has the kind of flawless bodies seen in the media
- sex and advertising media literacy
- oral sex
- body image
A brief discussion between each statement should occur.
Included: 40 Yes/ No cards, instructor statements, notes to instructor
Duration: 30 minutes + discussion
Level: Grade 9-12
