Kate Dawson

Dr. Kate Dawson in a post-doctoral researcher on the Active Consent campaign at The School of Psychology, NUI Galway. Kate’s research explores what young people learn about sex from watching porn and how we can develop age appropriate and engaging porn literacy interventions that meet the sexual health needs of young people. Kate has a keen interest in women’s sexual health – you’ll often find her reading books about vaginas in her local café (highlighting bits she particularly likes).

Kate is the author of the ‘Porn Report’, the largest study of porn users in Ireland, and has collaborated on several international research projects, including a study which explored the links between pornography use and sexual violence, and a project exploring sexual satisfaction among couples in consensually non-monogamous relationships. Kate also has ties with the elusive art-world and has collaborated with Bedfellows research project on “Porn as Pedagogy”, a visual art installation which explored queer sexuality, which was premiered at Tate Modern in 2016.

Each session runs twice a day for different timezones. The first session runs from 09:00-11:00 GMT and the second runs from 18:00-20:00 GMT.
