I present an exercise of cultural analysis using the sentence “What is this thing?”, from the children’s textbook (Lopes, 2000) to refer to “sex” and “sexuality”. I discuss the reflexive potential in Sexual Education, having as a reference Pedagogy of the Monsters (Cohen, 2000) and the “deconstruction” as an analytical method, associating them with theories in the fields of Cultural Studies and Feminist Studies, under the post-structuralist perspective of analysis. At school, “the sexes”, “the sexualities” and “the genres” can be thought as “curricular monsters”, as well as all the subjects marked by controversy, fleetness, normalization. As a cultural metaphoric phenomenon, “the monsters” subordinate themselves to the hegemonic standards of the normative culture at the same time they resist to them. This resistance allows the constituent processes of normality and the inequality in Sexual Education can be permanently questioned.
