The objective of this study was to learn, with fathers of male adolescents, their son’s experience with sexuality, and what the relationship with their own father was like in this regard. This qualitative study was performed with four fathers of students of a private school in Franca, São Paulo, Brazil. Semi-structured interviews were performed and submitted to thematic content analysis. After reading and organizing the data, two central themes were established based on Foucault’s perspective: contextualization of the period of adolescence and control over sexuality, with the subthemes dialogue, medicalization and religion. In the analysis, it was observed that the apparent loosened sexual repression may be a delusion, as there are more subtle control systems that can be used to manipulate the adolescent’s sexuality with greater precision.
