Abstract
This paper examines how speech about children's sexuality and relation to pornography relate to discourses about children's sexuality within a media debate on pornography. In the essay my material consists of debate articles from some of Sweden's most read news papers, and where I have made a discourse analysis based on a foucualdian methodology. The results of my analysis show, among other things, that boys' sexuality falls into the focus of the debaters, while speech about girls' sexuality and relationship to pornography is excluded from the debate. Boys are supposed to start consuming pornography at an early age and statements describe a concern that pornography risks damaging the boys' future sexuality in a harmful and negative way.
