The (Sex)abled: Disability Uncensored video is a superb discussion on the issues. There is almost no conversation about sex and the disabled in our society, making this and the other work these folks do truly groundbreaking. It’s powerful, positive, direct and personal.
( The discussion may not be safe for office.)
(Sex)abled: Disability Uncensored celebrates people with disabilities as sexual beings. This new 15-minute student film features participants of the discussion panel sponsored by University of California Berkeley’s Disabled Students Union called “Are Cripples Screwed?” The film also features other Bay area community members and comedian Josh Blue (winner of Last Comic Standing) as they share their personal experiences with sex, dating and intimacy. (Sex)abled reveals that while not everyone will choose to be sexually active, everyBODY is capable of being sexual.
Quotes from the discussion:
…Melissa says “sex is anything that gives me sexual pleasure, that I can get off on.”
..Ben says that sexuality is “a constant among humans it doesn’t matter your station in life…everyone has sexual frustrations that are similar enough.”
… Jackson says that he uses his humor to break down stereotypes of disability and “until [he] sees Stephen Hawking on the cover of a trashy romance novel, [he’s] forced to make beautifully crafted dick jokes.”
