This work presents a Foucaultian perspective and demonstrates how the use of such a perspective can illuminate the way power works - negatively and positively - in daily events. Drawing on Foucault in combination with life-history narratives from the author's research interviews and autobiographical experience, the text addresses: changing theories about sexuality; ideas about sex enmeshed in various pedagogies; and questions raised by the disciplining of sexuality as educational environments move into cyberspace.
