From an interdisciplinary Social Sciences approach, the research on sexual-affective education has been missed historically as a social phenomenon until very recently. Within the British context, researchers have included the topic of sex education mainly due to the high rates of teenage pregnancy. In Spain, sexual-affective education keeps on being a gap within the research agenda for Social Sciences such as Sociology, Social Anthropology, and Gender and Sexuality Studies. In this paper, I will present a research that is an attempt to shed some light on this gap. It refers to a study on sexual-affective education as a social-educational phenomenon, which plays a key role across the process of socialization/subjectivation by which the individual becomes a social gendered and sexualised being, this is the process by which a person is defined, self-identified and acts in terms of gender and sexuality. In particular, the paper refers to this process in the case of working-class youth, and looks into the family as one of the most relevant agencies of socialization/subjectivation for the topic of this research.
