EW, Raquel de Andrade Souza et al. Talking about sexuality in school:: a possible intervention. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.2, pp. 51-60. ISSN 1982-1247.

The aim of this intervention was to implement workshops on sexuality in schools, based on participant methodology. We performed 11 workshops in Porto Alegre with 349 students, organized from the students’ questions. The workshops aimed to promote critical reflection and self-care. We mapped the meanings related to sexuality and the students’ main doubts. The most cited words were: sex, love, condom, pleasure, gender, man, woman, pregnancy, diseases, and relationship. The most frequent doubts were: first sexual intercourse, pregnancy, medical care, sex and drugs, gender, sexual orientation, culture and sexuality, body and pleasure, sexually transmitted infections, and violence. Students assessed the intervention positively. Results point to the need for schools to approach the theme of sexuality, building spaces of dialogue.
