Download (1256Kb)


    The master's thesis focuses on the involvement of men, who are in relationships, in contraceptive decision making. Before the contraceptive revolution, men were crucial because male forms of contraception were widely available and used. In today’s society, however, it seems that women are the ones responsible for using contraception. The master's thesis focuses on exploring the role of men. The theoretical part contains information on contraception, its history, social shifts during the sexual revolution, with special emphasis on male forms of contraception currently available and forms of contraception that are still in development. It also covers the importance of sex education and the factors that influence men’s involvement in the contraceptive decision. The theoretical part ends with the placing of the topic in social pedagogy. The empirical part is based on interviews with ten men who used contraception at the time of research. It represents their experience of their own role in contraceptive decision making while in a relationship. The purpose of this research was to examine and investigate in more detail how men see their role in choosing contraception in a monogamous relationship, to explore their satisfaction with their role. The aim was also to find out which male forms of contraception they know of, how they talk to their partners about sexuality and what forms of contraception they have used in the past.
