Operations on the genitals of women are increasing. This can be due to dissatisfaction with their appearance, which can negatively impact sexual satisfaction. Since there are only a few opportunities for adult women to work on improving their genital self-image, there is hardly any empirical knowledge in this regard. The text is based on a study whose research ques- tion was the acceptance of body-oriented and haptic aspects of sexual education with regard to genital self-image in a group setting. A workshop and two group discussions were held with twelve women. The results show that body-oriented and haptic methods are widely accepted and positively connoted.
