In this episode, I take a look at sex, disability and the law. We talk briefly about The Ugly Laws, Eugenics, and discuss two cases that examine consent, sex, disability and the law. Through these cases I explore how the courts and our legal systems have a lot of work to do in understanding disability, and suggest perhaps that the courts would rather rely on ableist prejudices than looking at things further.
In this episode, I talk candidly about my relationship to porn as a queer cripple, and how I came to learn about it in my youth. In this first part of a miniseries I am calling "PwD: Porn While Disabled", I share why I think disability and porn are totally important, potentially problematic, and uncover why I myself might want to embark in the industry.
In this episode, I chat with "Dating Coach on Wheels" [www.datingcoachonwheels.com], Amin Lakhani about his experiences with sex, disability, tight clothes, jerking off, bow ties and muscular dystrophy. This is definitely one of my fave episodes so far! Enjoy!
In ths episode, I take a look at some flirting advice from the book "The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability". I talk about how I feel about some of this advice and whether or not I believe the advice holds up in the real-life disabled flirting scenarios... p.s. I dont think the advice does. I talk about my feelings around "Be Yourself" and "Be Bold" advice as a disabled person. I suggest that the onus to "be bold", etc. really shouldn't be placed on the disabled individual. Just some thoughts.
This episode had me riled up and angry about the way the media ran stories from parents of children with disabilities without the children's consent. I focus on 2 stories here about two parents who consider hiring sex workers for their sons to experience sex. I had lots of things to say about that (mostly angry things), and I also touch on disability activists Carly Findlay and Kim Sauder's thoughts on the matter. What do you think about parents talking about their disabled child's sex lives to the media?
For this episode, I got to sit down with disabled activist Alex Haagaard. We talked about the intersectionality found on the autism spectrum w/ respect to sexuality. This was a really important interview that touched on disability and sexuality in a new way for me, and I'm excited to share that with you!
In this episode, I talk to Eva who is a young, non-disabled sex educator, making sex education available via her Youtube Channel "What's My Body Doing".
We talk about the need for better sex education around disabilities, discover that even seasoned sex educators are afraid to talk about sex and disability, and I let Eva ask me some questions, so she can become a better sex educator. Enjoy!
In this episode, we talk about butt stuff...but not in the way you might be expecting. I sat down with Kelly Bracken who reached out to the showing wanting to share her experiences with an ileostomy bag and how this has affected her sexual confidence. The interview is fun, honest and touches on a topic that so many of us are afraid to go near. Luckily, Kelly knows how to stay sexy when shit happens.
This episode delves into the reality of touch and disability. We talk about how touch influences our sexuality as disabled people. I share my thoughts on how touch as a disabled man, and how this has played a role in my sex life, and I talk about what touch really means to me as a queer crippled man.
