As an able-bodied person, I have never thought about the difficulties a person with disabilities may face when trying to explore and develop their sexuality and desires. Therefore, this documentary short by Vice is really eye opening and thought provoking. The documentary especially focuses on the area of paying for sexual stimulation. In many countries escorting, prostitution or paying for sexual activities are illegal. However, even with this illegality, there are many people whom still seek these services. The documentary shows that ‘disabled people do get horny’, the words of the founder of Sensual Solutions , an agency that caters to disabled clientele.

Vice describe the documentary as:

‘For people with physical disabilities, issues with sexual function, or a total lack of experience, the path to getting off can be isolating and just plain awkward. However, a group of sex surrogates have pioneered a radical hands-on approach called “medically assisted sexuality” to help fulfill the intimacy needs of people with handicaps.’

I thought this documentary was both respectful and thought provoking. However, it did stay heavily on make desires. It would have been good to see how disabled women manage in the realm of sex and relationships.
