Disability and sex

by – Kai, lead somatic sexologist

Jenny Brockie from SBS current affairs program Insight recently hosted a forum on sex and disability. The episode was thought provoking and explored a variety of sensitivities. It is important that we acknowledge all persons with disability as sexual beings. We need not to discourage people, but to protect and empower them with knowledge so they can safely explore sexuality and curiosities. For carers this can be difficult and fraught with challenges, especially around consent. You can check out the episode here: Insight – Sex and Disability
