SRE YouTube Playlist

I've put together a YouTube playlist of Videos that may be useful in Sex and Relationship Education. Please have a look and leave any comments or suggestions about the videos.


  1. Thanks Gareth, great videos, really like the Dove ones. It's so out of control that we're bombarded by images of 'perfection' every day, even though it just doesn't exist. Any perspectives on a guy's self-image? What are the biggest challenges out there? Similar to girls i.e. images of celebs or more the 'be hard' or the 'be succesful' stereotyping?

  2. oops, forgot to click the notification button..

  3. I think that boys do have a lot of pressure around body image just like girls they see magazines/videos were guys have airbrushed abs and perfect skin.

    But the gender stereotypes may be a more universal difficulty for all guys were the body image may impact some guys more then others.

Agree - Disagree Sex and Relationship Statements

Today I shared another resource listing the agree disagree statement I often use in Relationship lessons. I find agree disagree activities as a bit of a two edge sword. Sometimes they are great and sometimes they just seem flat.  I think agree/disagree activities work well if young people in the group do not all think the same. The true value in agree/disagree activities is the discussion it can stir up. The discussion is the point where young people learn things and develop their attitudes. The statements need to be crafted to try and divide opinion and stir up this discussion. When the statements do not divide group opinion then rarely will I get a good follow up discussion. The problem is that the statements that work well for one group do not work for another group.  The temptation is to try and pick truly controversial issues but I have had as much success with the historically controversial issues (abortion, porn etc) as the more standard issues (loyalty, respect, condo
