ALENCAR, Rúbia de Aguiar; SILVA, Lucía; SILVA, Fábio Arlindo  y  DINIZ, Renato Eugênio da Silva. Development of a proposal for sex education for adolescents. Ciênc. educ. (Bauru) [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.1, pp.159-168. ISSN 1516-7313.

The general objective of this study was to describe the experience of the development pedagogy for sex education, based on assumptions contained in the work of Freire, seeking to assist adolescents from the periphery of a city in the interior from São Paulo. We opted for an action-research based pedagogic model from Freire. Starting initial questioning of the youths four interviews were carried out concentrating on questions about sexuality, anatomy and human physiology, birth-control methods and sexually transmitted diseases. With the completion of this work, the youths had the opportunity to participate in an educational process through the examination of their own experiences and beliefs, making it possible to reflect about their autonomy within the experiences of a healthy sexuality, one which respects itself and values the other.
