In this episode we talk about the many effects of pornography, how it has the ability to shape our behaviours, attitudes and beliefs about sex, and how we can help to educate people about consuming pornography. Remember, porn should be viewed as entertainment, not education.   Trigger warning: this episode mentions sexual violence and harrassment.

Another guest ep! Today I am speaking to Sammy, a friend of mine who experienced being caught driving over the legal limit here in Victoria. We discuss what happens when you receive a DUI (driving under the influence), the costs associated and the impact this had on Sammy’s mental health and social life. Please never let your mates, family members or partners drink and drive - for their safety and for the safety of the people on the roads around them. It’s not fun, it’s not cool and it’s not bloody worth it. A big thank you to Sammy for coming on and promoting this important message.   If you or someone you know needs help or support for alcohol misuse or addiction, visit the Drinkwise website at https://drinkwise.org.au/drinking-and-you/support-services/# or contact Alcohol Drug information Services on 1800 250 015.    Victorian drink-driving penalties: https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/safety-and-road-rules/road-rules/penalties/drink-driving-penalties    Take Off by LiQWYD https://soundcloud.com/liqwyd Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported — CC BY 3.0 Free Download / Stream: http://bit.ly/-take-off Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/_yx7h_JXuwQ
