(S)excerpts from a life told: sex, gender and learning disability

Chrissie Rogers , Brunel University

Powerpoint presentation


This is a paper about Sarah's sexual teenage journey through the lens of her mother, the author. It tackles learning disability, sexual experimentation, education, governance and responsibility. By using an autoethnographical method the paper speaks personally to these intimate lived experiences and yet broadly and contextually these issues can give further insight into the difficult social processes that permeate surveillance and control, of sexual activity amongst a particular group of young adults (those with learning disabilities), by way of legal practice and sex education; family practices and the negotiation of power and control over sexual activity; and sexual citizenship and rights to a sexual identity.
