Hot Topics Workshops

There is no doubt that our young people are getting an education about sex – the question is: 


"Where are they getting it from?"


Research is telling us that mass media and pornography are accounting for much of what a young person is exposed to and learns from, when it comes to forming their attitudes and beliefs about sex - how to look, how to act, and how to feel. 

The images and content depicted are often very poor educators, as the influence of advertising and consumerism overrides the necessity for relevant and accurate information. This is having a marked effect on the sexual behaviour of our young people, with alarming consequences: 

  • There is a higher level of STIs occuring in young people from primary school onwards
  • We are seeing a younger age of sexual debut (both loss of virginity and engagement in sexual practice) 
  • Young people are engaging in more extreme sexual behaviours from an earlier age (e.g. anal sex) 

Red Ginger Serivces aims to 'Fight Fire with Fire' and provide context to what our young people are accessing online, and in popular culture through its innovative, engaging and fun Hot Topics Workshops

We challenge negative stereotypes, promote safe and healthy relationships and teach participants how to think critically in regards to sex and what they are being exposed to. 

Our educational formats are delivered by experienced sexuality educators and we use multiple activities and different forms of technology to get our message across.
