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.

We have been accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners. Our one-day training workshops look at the impact of internet pornography on mental and physical health. Contact us for details of open events and in-house training. The workshops are suitable for anyone with an interest in pornography’s effects on behaviour. We also do talks in schools and are currently piloting lesson plans for teachers. The charity does talks with parents to help equip them to have that delicate conversation with their children.

Internet pornography is specifically designed by technology companies to stimulate cravings. It changes thoughts and behaviour without the user’s awareness. For increasing numbers of users this can lead to compulsive sexual behaviour disorder. Bingeing on porn can have a negative effect on sexual health, behaviour, relationships, attainment, productivity and criminality. The brain changes it creates tend to increase over time.

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

We report stories from thousands of people who have tried 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. 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.

Please contact us if you’d like more information on any of the matters mentioned here.
