Therapists and Teachers
This site will hopefully help you understand the range of emotional, relationship and sexual needs of disabled people, so you can decide how your particular skills can be put to such use.We are very keen that disabled people should not be patronized by professionals who offer therapy and counselling to “treat” their sexual frustrations. This has happened too much in the past, and we are trying to make the world a more enlightened place today.
This is not to say that disabled people, like other people, cannot gain from massage therapy, and being taught how to gain more pleasure from their bodies, and improve their skills at forming relationships.
Many disabled people express the view that their sex education was inappropriate and made them feel abnormal. They felt it did not apply to them, because their impairments were not mentioned, nor was the terrifying stigma they have face on a day-to-day basis. There is a long way to go to compensate for poor teaching practice, and disabled people say the best people to teach sex and disability to pupils are the sex workers who see them, as only they really know.
