 High school is a time when boys’ bodies are under (re)construction; they are developing and changing at different rates and “measure-up” to hegemonic masculinity in different ways. This article explores memories of masculinity and body images in school with a focus on physical education classes. Masculinities are regulated and “sorted” both within the social and psychic realm. The experiences of those interviewed help to illustrate various contradictions, complexites, and possibilities of negotiating masculine identities in institutionalized schooling.
