Pete's Tool: Identity and Sex-Play in the Design and Technology Classroom.
Dixon, Carolyn
Gender and Education, v9 n1 p89-104 Mar 1997
Explores the "interactional work" of one boy in a technology lesson as he elaborates, through "play" with workshop tools, a sexual fantasy of masturbation and penetration. This action is contextualized by his relations with others and by the dominance of a prevailing myth of male sexuality in his construction of a masculine identity in the classroom. (GR)
