Abstract

Teachers, school nurses and youth workers approach sexualities education differently, with young people being framed respectively as ‘innocent’, presexual beings at risk of corruption by sexual knowledge or practice; as rational decision makers with legitimate sexual health needs or concerns; or as sexual citizens whose empowerment might be supported by individual and social/community level interventions. This chapter places these differing models of sexualities education within a relational approach to sexual citizenship, tracing the sexuality-education assemblages that emerge in the intra-actions between young people and these professionals, and the capacities (sexual and otherwise) they produce in bodies.
