In this chapter we reflect on a research project through which we contributed our own academic perspectives, and through our mediation also those of children and parents, to public debates about 'sexualisation'. The research was funded by the Equal Opportunities Committee of the Scottish Parliament, and focused on 'sexualized goods' - clothing, cosmetics, toys and branded merchandise such as Playboy. It involved a retail survey and work with Scottish parents and young people.
