    I love this topic and am grateful that someone is actually making a serious effort to address it. I rarely see this subject come up in print or conversation. I suppose the general public believes that people who are differently-abled aren’t able to enjoy a “normal” sex life and, I am pleased to announce that that’s ridiculous. LOL

  7. So thrilled to see this! I will fill it out shortly and pass it around. I am just beginning to discover how I can use the work I do in sexuality to benefit people of all abilities.
    Thanks!
