Bringing a very relatable and slightly irreverent touch to a serious matter, the New Zealand government has put out a 30-second clip that literally brings home the reality of online pornography forming the main source of children's sex education. The country ran its first pornography report in 2019. Its findings suggested that sexual coercion and power imbalances are still commonly depicted in the online porn which is often a young person's main introduction to sexual relationships, while demonstrations of affection and sexual safety (use of condoms) lagged behind. “Often the videos with this content would start with a reluctant partner, usually the female, who starts out saying ‘no’ to sex but whose initial resistance is overcome through insistence and subtle pressure by the male," reported Chief Censor David Shanks. "The actress is then portrayed as enjoying the sexual contact – female pleasure was notable in 99% of the videos.” The government, currently led by female prime minister Jacinda Ardern, is making efforts to tackle the issue, and this campaign has had positive feedback for its down-to-earth approach. What do you think of it?
