Description:
Existing research into adolescent sexuality in an Irish context has primarily been conducted using survey methods and these have provided quantitative data on the topic. Prior to this study, no major qualitative research studies had been conducted on teenage sexuality in Ireland. Qualitative research aims to understand a phenomenon, by exploring people’s behaviour and the meaning of this behaviour in the social context, in its full complexity. The aim of this study was to explore post-primary pupils’ perspectives on sexuality, sex education, and the discourses and factors that influence their sexual knowledge and behaviour.
