Starting the conversation about respectful relationships

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

ClickView is committed to providing you with the resources you need to deliver age-appropriate and evidence-based respectful relationships education. These two series have been developed with subject experts to raise awareness of problematic behaviours among young people and create healthy attitudes towards sex and relationships.

Series 1 synopsis, Respectful Relationships:
During filming of a light-hearted production set in Victorian times, the dialogue and ‘real life’ conversations between actors and crew explore important topics including:

  • How social constructs around gender can contribute to sexist and homophobic attitudes, unreasonable expectations, and gender inequality.
  • The importance of enthusiastic consent and to respect others’ autonomy at all times.
  • Different levels of sexual harassment, from ‘just a joke’ banter that constitutes harassment, through to more overt examples of catcalling and physically invading personal space.
  • Domestic violence, including how abusive relationships often occur over time, and the important role of the bystander.

Series 2 synopsis, Respectful Intimate Relationships:
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.

SERIES 1

Respectful Relationships

4 videos | Secondary

During filming of a light-hearted production set in Victorian times, the dialogue and ‘real life’ conversations between actors and crew explore important topics within relationships.

Consent

Set around a film shoot featuring Victorian era socialites, this video clip focuses on consent in relationships. Through the film dialogue, and ‘real-life’ conversations between the actors and crew, it reinforces an important message about consent between couples. It is not just about the fact that “no” means “no”, but that not saying “yes” also means “no”.

Gender

As we watch a scene being filmed where the arrival of a platypus triggers off debate between Victorian era scientists about the animal’s exact identity, we learn that one of the film crew is ‘genderqueer’. It gives rise to a discussion between others on the set about gender identity and explores how stereotyping about adherence to gender-based behavioural norms can challenge and confront conventional mindsets.

Sexual Harassment

During the filming of a light-hearted production set in Victorian times, a scene portrays a man making an unwelcome advance to a woman. When the filming stops, we see that sexual harassment is also very much alive today in a whole range of situations. This clip explores sexual harassment through a scenario involving role reversal, delivering a poignant message about appropriate and respectful behaviour in relationships.

Domestic Violence

During a film shoot depicting a rather macabre Victorian supper preparation procedure, we are also taken inside the private life of a couple involved in the production. Things are strained between them as we learn of an incident that occurred the night before. This clip reinforces the fact that domestic violence is never okay, and that both perpetrators and victims should seek help.

SERIES 2

Respectful Intimate Relationships

4 videos | Secondary

A cast and crew film a pirate-themed series about respectful intimate relationships.

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.

Discussing pornography openly and honestly can be one of the most important things we do as educators to help young people navigate their way into adulthood. Young people need our help to contextualise what they see online and build their critical thinking skills.

The behind-the-scenes teacher series includes conversations between Catherine Manning from SEED Workshops and ex-AFL star and teacher Glenn Manton. Together they explore the important ideas and issues raised in the Respectful Intimate Relationships videos.

These include:

  • Creating ‘safe spaces’ to discuss these ideas with students free of judgement.
  • Practical tips and ideas to start and continue the conversation.
  • Getting school administration and community support.
Pre-Teaching Support

Hear from members of the cast and crew about the challenges and highlights of creating this incredible cinematic world, plus more about the context and purpose of the series.

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. While there are good reasons to be concerned about the impact this may be having on the development of young people’s sexual attitudes and self-image, Catherine Manning argues that attentive, sex-positive discussion remains the best remedy.
