    Abstract [en]

    A concept that has been used in relation to teenage girls and sexuality is sexual agency, to act upon independent decision. The purpose of this study is to reach a better understanding of what influences the development of sexual agency in teenage girls, based on narratives of two professions at youth clinics. It also aims to make a critical analysis and a sociological theorization of the perception of sexual agency and from a power perspective investigate its disciplining and liberating potential.

    Previous research’s primary conclusion is that there is a lack of desire and knowledge among teenage girls. Their ability to take independent decisions in relation to sexuality depends on their agency. In this study qualitative interviews were conducted with midwives and counselors at youth clinics. Thematic analysis was used in the interpretation process. The empirical material showed that teenage girls’ agency is influenced by external influences, limit-setting, shame, self-confidence and knowledge.

    To reach a sociological understanding of the empirical material sociological perspectives on sexuality, power and Foucault's theory of disciplining the body have been used. Based on professions at youth clinics, the analysis showed that the development of sexual agency benefit from knowledge and confidence is hampered by influence and shame, and both benefits and hampers by boundaries. The enhanced analysis showed that sexual agency may create more autonomous decisions, reducing vulnerability to disciplining forces and thereby has liberating effects within the self-defined boundaries of the discipline. One final conclusion was that the perception of sexual agency should be understood as primarily disciplining.
