Contraception, Copulation Domination, and the Theoretical Barrenness of Sex Education Literature.
Diorio, Joseph A.
Educational Theory, v35 n3 p239-54 Sum 1985
Sex education which deals with the problem of teenage pregnancy and is based upon the essentialist view of sex as heterosexual copulation constitutes misrepresentation of sexuality to young people. The alternative of encouraging adolescents to pursue sexual satisfaction through activities other than copulation is ignored in sex education literature. (MT)
