Researchers say there is a need for "consent classes" in secondary schools.
Young people are calling for improved sex education.
An Oireachtas education committee heard from several educators yesterday, who are campaigning for the introduction of "consent classes" in secondary schools.
Founder of UCC's Bystander Intervention Programme, Professor Louise Crowley, says she has been contacted by several young men and teens who are eager to have better relationship education in their schools.
She believes teenagers should learn about sex and consent in a safe environment, and not on the internet
