Western 21st century life is saturated in sex – because ‘sex sells’, they tell us. Sex sells cars, yoghurt, shampoo, moisturiser, anti-perspirant, noodles, and even car insurance. This course will take you through the studies and reports that set out the evidence for the hypersexualisation of society and how this is impacting boys and girls growing up in today’s sexualised world. This course explores theories for why this is happening and how children are objectifying themselves from as early as just seven years old.

- To explore theories, evidence, and experiences of children who have been influenced by hypersexualisation and objectification
- To understand the psychological impact of these processes and how it contributes to CSE/A
