Feeling connected with others is a fundamental human need for all people. Sexuality is one aspect of being human that helps people connect. It is a natural part of living and can be fun for everyone, including people living with a disability or personal need. Sexuality is often equated with just sex, but in reality it is much broader than that. It encompasses all the feelings, thoughts and behaviours of being female or male, being comfortable with ourselves and being in love, as well as being in relationships that may include sexual intimacy.
People living with disabilities are rarely seen as sexual beings which leads to a range of myths and misconceptions surrounding disabilities and sex.
