Let's Get Lippy: Helping Clients Love Their Labia by Normalizing Genital Diversity
Description: Understanding genital anatomy and normalizing genital diversity can reduce a woman's experience of genital shame. Yet, genital self-image is rarely understood let alone considered in medical and therapeutic communities. The purpose of the session is to educate and bring awareness to the importance of genital self-image. A positive genital self-image is shown to reduce sexual stress and depression and correlates positively to higher desire in women. Our presentation and discussion will describe how different genital sizes and shapes do matter.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: describe female genital anatomy, recognize its diversity, explain the normal range of vulva appearances and discuss with their clients genital self-image and its biopsychosocial impact on women; demonstrate an understanding of vulvar education.
