Sexual Equality for Disabled
Amid questions over U.K. taxpayer money spent on sex services for the disabled, Naomi Jacobs rejects the "myth" that the disabled need to exploit prostitutes to have sex. "There are all manner of factors that make it more difficult for disabled people to meet prospective sexual partners, not least poor physical access to social venues – but the biggest obstacle is other people's attitudes. This has as much to do with ignorance as it does with our culture's obsession with perfect bodies," she says. "Disabled people's sexuality is a social issue. Many of us are having sex...We're at it – get over it."
