Pam Krause, our Executive Director, comments on the upcoming "Pornified" event

"We know from our work that pornography is having an impact on sexuality in our culture.

By hosting this discussion, we’re not attempting to debate the morality of pornography. Instead, we think it’s important to look at how it is influencing our society – especially youth sexuality – and to start a conversation about what we can do about it."

For more about this event, check out the recent interview with Pam in FFWD Magazine.

The Calgary Sexual Health Centre is proud to present
“A Porn Perspective”

Join us for an evening of engaging discussion with acclaimed journalist and author, Pamela Paul. Often controversial, consistently thought-provoking, Ms. Paul will present her views on the impact of pornography in the 21st century.

The format will encourage an open conversation with the audience.

Pamela Paul is an award-winning author and journalist who writes about social and cultural issues, demographic trends, consumer culture, psychology and health, and family. Ms. Paul is currently a columnist for The New York Times Styles section, where her Studied column, a critical look at recent social science research, runs bimonthly.

Her second book, PORNIFIED, was named one of the best books of 2005 by The San Francisco Chronicle. Using a mix of original qualitative and quantitative research, extensive interviews and vivid narrative, PORNIFIED tells the story of how men, women and children are affected by the ubiquity and mainstreaming of porn.

This event is open to the public.
Admission is free, however donations to support the work of CSHC are greatly appreciated.
