Adolescent Sexuality and the Struggle Over Authority
Gadpaille, Warren J.
Journal of School Health, 40, 9, 479-483, Nov '70
Adolescent use of sex as a vehicle for coping with authority is by no means always pathological. Adolescents are normally progressing into full heterosexuality. Some cultures force adolescents to break tabus and defy prohibitions in order to exhibit normal sexuality. They thus incur automatic definition as being bad by the defining authorities. It may, in fact, be the definitions that are sometimes inappropriate, and the adolescents who are sometimes normal. (Author)
