respectful intimate relationship ClickView

A ClickView original series

This outstanding series designed for Years 10 – 12 students and their teachers explores challenging and important issues surrounding pornography such as misogyny in pornography, pornography versus reality, pornography addiction and the sharing of intimate images.

Starting the conversation about respectful relationships

As an educator, you’re in the unique position of being able to facilitate important, if challenging, conversations with your senior students. ClickView’s original Respectful Intimate Relationships series has been specifically designed to give you the tools and resources you need to teach these topics with confidence.

Series synopsis:
A cast and crew film a pirate-themed series about respectful intimate relationships. Through four episodes, they discuss and explore topics including:

  • How pornography is made for the ‘male gaze’.
  • Recognising and seeking help for pornography addiction.
  • The impact of non-consensual sharing of intimate images.
  • Privacy, sex shaming, revenge porn and victim blaming.
  • Misogyny and stereotypes in pornography.
  • The importance of consent and open conversations about sexual needs.

Equipping young people with media literacy and body safety skills

The four videos created for senior students are supported by an excellent five-part professional development series. This behind-the-scenes breakdown will help teachers develop and deliver a series of lessons about these important topics.

Any respectful relationships discussion should have the issue of enthusiastic consent front and centre. By equipping our young people with strong media literacy and body safety skills, such as the ability to distinguish fantasy from reality, they will be more likely to identify and reject problematic behaviours in the future.

Free resources: Behind the Scenes of Respectful Intimate Relationships

Discover all four full-length episodes free to share with your students. Each episode comes with a pack of printable supporting resources to use in your lessons.

Note: Series is M rated and suitable only for senior students under supervision.

Pornography v. Reality

While shooting a fight scene, boom operator Tim annoys the director and cast as he questions the realism of what they are filming. This leads to an in-depth conversation between the director and cast about if the sex acts depicted in pornographic films are real, how people learn about sex and issues to do with consent. This video is an ideal way to open discussions about the pornography industry with secondary students.

Sharing Intimate Images

A scene showing Captain Terry’s reaction when a friend shares a picture of his ‘doodle’ sparks a deeper conversation between the cast members about the impact of non-consensual sharing of intimate images, privacy, sex shaming, revenge porn and victim blaming. The comedic style of this video enables senior secondary students to easily engage with the topics.

Pornography and Addiction

Boom operator Tim becomes so distracted by his addiction to online pornography that his work on set begins to suffer. The director talks with him about acknowledging his problem and realising how much it controls his behaviour, then encourages him to talk to people he trusts to get help. The pirate-themed comic elements of the video help senior secondary students to fully explore the nature of addiction.

Misogyny in Pornography

After a scene on the pirate ship where the characters argue over what ‘all’ women like, the cast and crew discuss how pornography is made for the ‘male gaze’. They explore ideas about misogyny and stereotypes in pornography and the importance of having open conversations with partners about sexual interests and needs. This video will help teachers introduce senior secondary students to important respectful relationships topics in an engaging manner.

How to Talk About Pornography?

The rapid advance of the internet into all aspects of our lives has brought with it near ubiquitous access to pornography, and ever younger viewers of it.
