Pornography is ubiquitous, highly accessible, and vivid. It is increasingly influential in the sex lives and sexual development of consumers around the world. Public discussion of pornography tends to emphasise its potential for harm. However, our research investigating what pornography means to women aged who have or intend to have sex with men, found its contribution to their lives was complex and often contradictory. Most of the 27 women we interviewed said they found pleasure in pornography. It gave them new sexual ideas and could make them feel like their body and their sexual preferences were normal. We were forced to conclude, however, that pornography reinforces existing social inequalities and stigma.

But with persistent barriers to SRH services, we know that to truly understand what it takes to meet youth SRH needs, we need to widen the lens from which we reach and serve our youngest consumers. And with existing evidence proving the efficacy of digital services in linking young people to SRH resources and care…. We convened 84 Kenyan university students aged from rural, peri-urban and urban backgrounds. Through a variety of gender-segmented focus groups, we sought to understand the nuances of sexual pleasure from perception to comfort level and identify how we could integrate digital platforms to reach young people with the information they said wanted, on their own terms. Sex-positive approaches strive to achieve ideal experiences, rather than solely working to prevent negative experiences. At the same time, sex-positive approaches acknowledge and tackle the various risks associated with sexuality, without reinforcing fear, shame or taboo surrounding the sexualities of young people.

Higgins conceived the study design, oversaw the analyses, and took the lead in writing the article. Wang managed the data, conducted analyses, created tables, and assisted with article preparation. Condoms can help young adults protect themselves from sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancy. We used a nationally representative sample of heterosexually active, unmarried to year-old young adults to document multivariate associations with condom nonuse at the last sexual episode. For both young men and women, pleasure-related attitudes were more strongly associated with lack of condom use than all sociodemographic or sexual history factors. Because of their unique ability to prevent both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections STIs , male condoms are a vital public health tool. We addressed these limitations using a nationally representative sample of young adult women and men to assess how attitudes about condoms and sexual pleasure might be related to condom practices. We worked with data from the to National Survey of Family Growth NSFG , which collects information on sexual behavior and contraception among other things in a national probability sample of to year-old respondents.
It's got to be about enjoying yourself: young people, sexual pleasure,and sex and relationships education. Sex Education: sexuality, society and learning , 13 4 , Pleasure as a component of sexualities and relationships education SRE has been subject to much recent discussion. Arguably, academic debate has been more prominent than practitioner perspectives, with theoretical articulations and critique superseding pragmatic attention to integrating pleasure into learning about sexualities and relationships. Though there are exceptions, sexuality education that recognises pleasure and desire for young people remains absent in many contexts, despite calls for its inclusion for more than two decades. This paper offers a synthesis of expert opinion to outline the importance of pleasure and positive SRE to sexual health, rights, equality and safeguarding against coercion and harm. The paper acknowledges the often uneasy associations between sexuality, education and youth by identifying key political and academic debates, before offering a rationale on ways forward that may help persuade curriculum gatekeepers of its merits. Analysis focuses mainly on young women with reflections on current knowledge and the need for more empirically based research and theorising on boys and men.
