Abstract: Michel Foucault's work The History of Sexuality deconstructs discourse on sexuality and how this discourse affects constructions of sexuality. Based on my own fieldwork in an all male sex education classroom, I examine one teacher's different teaching methods through the framework of sex education researcher Sue Lees' three political stances of teaching sex education: conservative, liberal, and feminist. I also examine the teacher's use of media and sports in the classroom, connecting his lesson plans to John Dewey's educational philosophy, which focuses on the primacy of the students' classroom experience. With this analysis and Foucault's direction, I examine how sexuality is created in the classroom through educator's pedagogical methods. Included is a history of sex education in the United States and an annotated bibliography.
