According to a report in the Daily Mail the author of the proposed course, Laura Colclough, said the £100 pack supports the government's policies focused on reducing sexual violence against women and was a useful educational tool.

“It's not from an angle of supporting sexuality or pornography but critically evaluating it,” Colclough said, adding that “Gone are the days when young people are not sexualised. Most, if not all, see the music videos. They see the culture and they surf the internet.”

Nick Seaton, of the CRE, told the Daily Mail that “This sort of material is far too explicit to be suitable for schools. Sensible parents will be extremely perturbed that their children are being.
