Workshop 3 outline: Drawing initially on a single case study, this talk explores the relationship between methodologies used for sex research and representations of ‘sex’ in everyday life. Using an ESRC funded cross generational study of heterosexuality in the UK, carried out with Jenny Hockey and Angela Meah, it asks how the relationship between interviewer and informant contributes to the production of knowledge around sexuality and how this then relates to the actual concepts and practices which constitute everyday understandings of sexuality
