Abstract

This paper explores male and female perspectives on disability and sexuality. The topic of male disability and sexuality focuses mainly on men who have spinal cord injuries and use wheelchairs, and though important, this focus is due to the fact that not much information pertaining to men with other disabilities and their sexual experiences is available. The female section mostly concerns the abuse of women with disabilities, because they are seen as vulnerable by society. This paper is not a manual about sex for people with disabilities, but it discusses many of the fallacies that society has about people with disabilities and their sexualities.
