About this event

Public debate and academic research about young people and sex tend to be framed in terms of sexualization or pornification', both forms of 'bad' sex with supposedly negative effects on the sexuality of girls and boys alike. Our research asks the opposite question How do young people define, experience and conduct 'good sex'? While our methods are diverse and include party observations, social media analysis and mass observatory methods, we will specifically talk about our 'music voice' project, showing how young people actively use music to express and experience good sex.
