Disability dating links

I've had lengthy conversations with men who are shocked that disabled people have the same sexual desires as them and have sex lives too.I recently spoke with a guy I was at school with and he confessed that he liked me at the time, but couldn't figure out how or if I could have sexual relationships.

Woman C: My disability definitely affects my sex drive and response. However, sex can also be a great stress and pain relief.

Woman D: Depression has killed my sex drive, and anorexia means I haven't got the energy for or interest in sex. Woman E: It can very much depend on how my MS is behaving on a certain day.

Fatigue, pain, and spasms are my big problem, but I really try not to let it get in the way of anything I want to do. I have a high sex drive so I like to do it with my boyfriend as often as my body allows!

How, if at all, has your disability affected the way you have sex?

As my pain worsened and I have become more limited, this isn't an option anymore. I am unable to do a lot of everyday things because of my pain, which I have a tendency to blame on my body.

I seem to see my body and my mind as separate entities.

Other areas are also heightened — if a man pays enough attention to my neck, that can induce orgasm. Usually I'm the first disabled woman a man has slept with so I have to make sure they're at ease with it all, though it is incredibly sexy when a man takes control and doesn't treat me like a crystal vase that will break on throw down.

Woman C: I have to be mindful of and respect my physical limitations so that I don't overdo it and pass out.

Woman E: I've got a love/hate relationship with my body. In my head, I can still do the things I used to "pre-MS" but my body just goes, nah, we're not doing that!
