The Reward Foundation is a pioneering sex and relationship education charity. We make the research behind love, sex and internet pornography accessible to a wide public. Research shows that bingeing on internet pornography can become compulsive and reduces interest in and satisfaction from real life sexual relationships.

Schools and Parents

The Reward Foundation provides talks to whole year groups for secondary schools. In addition we are also about to launch sets of lesson plans for teachers to use. These are in the final stages of being piloted.

The charity does talks with parents to help equip them to have that uncomfortable conversation with their children and to help coordinate support with schools. See also our free Parents’ Guide to Internet Pornography.

We look too at porn’s influence on consentsexting and other sexual offending along with the long term impact of an offence on jobs, travel, and social life.

Children are naturally curious about sex. At the same time they are particularly vulnerable to internet porn’s effects due to their stage of brain development. Free, easy to access, hardcore pornography via smartphones and tablets makes it difficult for them to avoid it.  Most internet pornography today does not model intimacy and trust but rather unsafe sex, coercion and violence particularly towards women. Children are failing to learn what they need for healthy, loving, sexual development.

Help the children you care for to find love not porn.


We have been accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners to run training workshops on the impact of internet pornography on mental and physical health. The content is also relevant for those responsible for dealing with sexual harassment issues in the workplace. Contact us for details of open events and in-house training available in half day and full day formats. The workshops are suitable for anyone with an interest in pornography’s effects on behaviour.

The Reward Foundation will also be offering workshops for teachers to teach the lesson plans we are currently piloting. Information about these ‘train the trainer’ sessions will be posted in the spring. Sign up to our newsletter at the foot of the page to stay up-to-date with developments.

The Porn Trap

Pornography companies have been at the vanguard of internet development and design to make hyper stimulating sexual material available free, on stream via smartphones at levels never before available to human beings. This is stimulating supernormal cravings, that in turn  change a porn user’s thoughts and behaviour over time without their awareness. For increasing numbers of users this can lead to compulsive sexual behaviour disorder. It can have a negative effect on sexual health, behaviour, relationships, attainment, productivity and criminality. The brain changes tend to increase over time.

We report stories from thousands of people who have experimented with  quitting and experienced a variety of mental and physical benefits as a result. See this young man’s story. We also write about the latest research on this subject.

Our Philosophy

We are not out to ban porn, but rather help people make ‘informed’ choices about its use. Our advice helps people improve their chances of enjoying a successful, loving relationship without the detrimental effect of porn. Here is a self-assessment exercise. The Reward Foundation does not offer therapy nor provide legal advice.  However, we do signpost routes to recovery for men and women whose use has become problematic.
