 Summary. In modern educatioal methods we can Always find very specialized ways, full of knowledge, but far from minor’s strategies, which have many unifying features. We can often observe those behaviours when topics are abut affectivity and sexuality which are near the structure of the individual and which induce grown-up people to put intervention into different sectors, isolating sexual education from larger context and confining it to the neutral and reassuring field of the mere information. In this work we try to find the antecedents and the limits of this course, proposing the placement of sexuality inside a natural continuum away from which the educational intervention loses its effectiveness.
