A large number of disabled people have never experienced sex in their life. This lack of physical contact produces emotional pain. The disabled have the same desires and needs as everyone else. This is a presentation on how to interact and approach sexual activity with people who have disabilities. We will explore practical ways to physically interact with disabled partners.
Our presentation is intended to be a guide to help able-bodied people interact with people with disabilities in the best possible way. I will begin with a brief discussion about how people with disabilities should be viewed by able-bodied people. I will then provide correct terminology and etiquette, which may be utilized with people who have different disabilities. The presentation concludes with a short discussion of correct sexual etiquette between able-bodied people and the disabled(differently-abled).
William Takahashi is a college graduate with a background in graphic arts and social work. He is disabled and has Cerebral Palsy. The effect of Cerebral Palsy, or CP, is characterized by lack of muscle control and body movement. He decided to enter the adult design world three years ago because he saw a real need for education, understanding, and integration of the disabled into the adult industry. It’s unfortunate that sex and disability are more often seen as a medical or academic research topic, but not seen as erotic or hot. He splits his time between doing disability awareness training in the adult entertainment industry, and marketing his erotic art greeting cards to adult product retail stores. He also enjoys being in front of a camera.
