09:30 Sex and ethics
Dr Moira Carmody from the University of Western Sydney, author of a programme for 18 to 25-year-olds teaching them about sex and ethics.
She says the traditional messages given young women and men about how to negotiate sexual relationships are outdated. Dr Carmody's programme has been trialled in Wellington - funded by the Ministry of Justice.
Sex and Ethics is a six week programme about how we build mutual sexual relationships where sexual violence is not present. The programme doesn't tell young people what to do - it helps them decide how to make ethical decisions around how they treat sexual partners, how they ask for what they want sexually, and how they can safely intervene if they see situations which they feel are unethical - for example around drugs, alcohol and sex.
