Like Planet Porn this is about encouraging people to be critical about the messages they receive about love and relationships. It also gives us the opportunity to think about which messages about relationships we teach young people.
Messages about relationships come from many places: sex educators, teachers, family, friends, religion, TV, film, books, magazines. Many of them say the same thing:
“You just need to find the right person and everything will be fine.”
“There’s a special person out there for you.”
“The best way to start a relationship is to be friends first.”
“Once you meet someone they will be the most important person to you.”
“When you find someone or settle down.”
“Sex in a loving relationship is always better.”
“Sex is vital to a relationship.”
This pack encourages critical thinking about relationships and encourages people to find their own answers and to write their own love stories.
