This piece of work is a qualitative research on young women (aged between 19 and 21) and sexuality conducted in 2004; the journey begins from the discourses that were presented in the sex education classes at school and ends in their everyday practices and relationships. How do young women that identify themselves as feminist translate the feminist theories about sexuality in their sexual experiences? How impacts sexual school education in their attempts to make sense of their relationships and encounters?
