BORDINI, Gabriela Sagebin  and  SPERB, Tânia Mara. The negotiation of meanings associated to sexualities: an analysis of a narrative-in-interaction. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.1, pp.37-47. ISSN 1413-7372.

The study aimed to investigate the meanings associated by teenagers to men and women in the field of sexuality. More than identifying the reproduction of traditional gender standards, we highlight the negotiation of  these by adolescents through  the relativization, questioning and construction of new meanings. For this, we analyzed a narrative constructed in interaction by teenagers in an online focus group. The positioning analysis undertaken revealed that traditional  patterns of masculinity and femininity were reinforced but also relativized, as we identified group members and narrative characters in nontraditional male and female positions.

Keywords : Gender; sexuality; narratives.
