Sexuality is not a matter completed after puberty. Rather, it is a lifelong aspect of human existence, which contributes greatly to the well-being. The awareness of the need for sexual education of adults is hardly available. Adulthood is often depicted as a latency period and it is assumed that only young people need assistance in the handling of sexuality-related issues. Though the requirements of both groups, often differ only slightly. Furthermore problems arise from the effects of the so called second modernity. In addition to sex-education, counselling is another part of sexual education. According to my studying discipline, I will focus on socio-pedagogical counselling. This I deviate from three core theories of social work; the concept of ?lifeworld orientation? by Hans Thiersch, the design of ?life accomplishment? by Lothar Böhnisch and the understanding of ?socio-pedagogical actions in support of (self-)forming (self-education) processes? by Klaus Mollenhauer. Subsequent to this, the profile of socio-pedagogical counselling can be sharpened. Adjacent I will depict adults as the target group. In addition, the definition of sexuality in relation to current features and the description of contemporary forms of relationship and sexuality will be presented. However, this thesis is not only based on theoretical knowledge. Seven interviews with practicing sex-counsellors were conducted. The interplay of theory and qualitative interview-evaluation answers the questions of how sexuality is characterized in the everyday-life of adults, which questions and problems might occur and how socio-educational counselling can support adults in their sexuality.
