Depends which one you mean - if it's Carol, yes.

BTW. Not many people know this, but Carol Smart was once a man.

"Bedroom culture" is a concept related to lifestyle.

In basic terms, while "young men" spend their time "hanging around on the street" etc. and therefore have a high risk of criminal / deviance involvement, "young women" have a more individualistic lifestyle (confined to the home etc.). If they're not "out and about" they're less likely to be involved in crime etc.

The idea relates to social control / socialisation / surveillance - girls commit fewer crimes because their lives are more closely controlled / watched.

Yes, I am telling the truth - when I were a lad at Lancaster University Carol was a man in the process of becoming a woman.

If I remember correctly from my revision notes, the Bedroom Culture refers to a theory by Angela McRobbie which basically argues that girls are socialised to not engage in crime and deviance through the bedroom culture - in that when they're young, girls tend to go round to each other's houses and read "socialising" magazines (like Bliss or Girl Talk) and participate in typically feminine activities instead of playing in the streets or engaging in minor deviance like boys.

Very stereotypical, I know, but that's feminism for you!

No rosiepop your reply was helpful....and thanks chris too....i see now how i could bring in bedroom culture into a paragraph on control theory.

Also its a bit synoptic cause its about socialisation.
