Ten myths about sex and disability

Our friend @Mik_Scarlet has made a wonderful video dispelling the myths about sex and disability, it is well worth a look!

It contains content of a sexual nature and therefore isnt suitable for younger members.

Tackling myths such as:
“Disabled people don’t want or need sex.”
“Disabled people can’t have sex.”
“Isn’t it wrong for disabled people to have children as they will pass on their disability to their kids?” 
“Disabled people have to pay to have sex.”

Take a look now and let us know what you think.

    Very interesting. I must admit to having some of those ideas in the past when I was healthy and even 1 until very recently. I guess society conditions us to look at the disabled in a certain way.
