Description - Girls, Boys and Junior Sexualities by Emma Renold

This book takes an unrelenting look at the hidden worlds of young children's sexualities. Based upon extensive group interviews and observation, this book taps into and conceptualises the significance of young children's understandings of their own sexualities. The author illustrates how sexuality and gender are embedded in children's cultures; peer relations and identity formations: how being a 'proper' boy or girl involves investing in a heterosexual identity and how girls are central to the formation of boys' sexual cultures and identities. Grounded in children's real-life experiences, the book traces their struggles, anxieties and pleasures as they makes sense of their emerging sexualities. It also includes discussions about the pressures of compulsory heterosexuality, the boyfriend/ girlfriend culture, misogyny and sexual harassment.
