Pure Life Revolution is a project that will address the issue of the sexualisation of young people in the UK. Our aim is to create a full-length theatre production that will tour across the country looking at how to handle relationships, pornography, cyber sex and grooming.
It ran from 12:00 PM, 1 September 2010 to 12:00 PM, 1 December 2011
Over 80% of young people use the internet daily or weekly and around a third of 8-11 year olds and 60% of 12-15 year olds say that they mostly use the internet on their own. A recent YouGov survey found that 27% of boys are accessing pornography every week and 5% viewing it every day. We are aware that our young people have become increasingly vulnerable to being sexualised through the over use of such mediums as the internet. Young people need to be shown how to say no and retain purity.
The theatre production will address such subjects as pornography, cyber sex and online grooming showing the negative effects that they have upon a young person who is subjected to them. The production will then aim to show that there is another way of being in relationship with someone, one that models how to honour each other. After each production there will be workshops for the young people to attend, unpacking these issues further, giving practical ways that they can protect their purity.
