The article talks about how communication is important and has a huge list of all-inclusive sex toys! Plus a whole bunch of related articles if you want to know more.
It got me thinking about the way we teach or reference sex and sexual health education. It’s 100% ableist and doesn’t allow for much wiggle room. It’s assumed you have a Fully Functioning body (read as: every sex position ever) to have good, enjoyable sex. But what if you aren’t able-bodied? I think shifting the perspective on sex to a more inclusive one is a start.
What do you think? Did anything in the article stand out to you? Do you think sex is ableist?
@tea Wow, such and interesting article! I definitely agree that when we teach or reference sex and sexual health that it’s assumed you have a fully functioning body! I can’t recall ever being taught about sex and sexual health with or as a person with a disability.
I think it should be discussed more and talked about in sexual education to hopefully remove any stigma that people may have.
There’s definitely so much more to unpack in regards to sexual health education!! It’s wayyyy too linear. I think destigmatising sex as a ‘dirty’ thing is the first step in breaking out of this linear thought pattern though – it can pave the way to more accessible sex!
