Being differently-abled does not mean that one has to shunt all the fun things you used to do like sex, especially if there is a relationship commitment.
Clinical sexologist and couple and sex therapist, Dr Eve explores some of the struggles differently-abled people go through in order to satisfy their sexual pleasures.
We still struggle as abled bodied people to be sexual, just think about the inability to do the basics of what is required to be sexual.— Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist
It is really the lack of privacy and independence that gets you depressed and makes you say there is no I am interested in getting sexual even though I desperately want a connection with somebody.— Dr Eve, Clinical sexologist
Dr Eve says that self-acceptance, feeling attractive and good body image are necessary for satisfying sexual play.
She adds that sexuality is one way we can feel free to express many vulnerable parts of ourselves.
