I’ve had people tell me that disabled people are constantly horny, and are ready to have sex with any and everyone.
The other extreme is that people have expressed shock and even outrage at the notion of sex with someone with a disability.
This, for some newly diagnosed people, may make dealing with medical issues more difficult.“When people see someone in a wheelchair, they automatically begin making assumptions,” says Vaughn.
“From my personal perspective, if individuals see someone in a wheelchair, they immediately assume that there are multiple disabilities that the person is dealing with–mental, visual, auditory–and not just the fact that there is a mobility issue.” People with disabilities and advocates debate whether this is a “compliment” or an insult; however, many warn that it can come across as degrading a person.
“So if David Soares in Jamaica meets Maxine Soares in Holland and they fall in love, although they might feel that distance is one factor that disqualifies them from being related, family and friends might think otherwise.
So to ensure that one of them is not an outside child who was never brought to the fore, it is suggested that they both ask some questions and trace the family line to see if there is a possibility that they are blood relatives,” he said.
“These terms are unacceptable because they are linked to a history that the general public isn’t aware of,” says Nancy Starnes, vice president and chief of staff for the National Organization on Disability (NOD).That combination of a fabulous sense of humour and stubborn independence was what attracted me to my ex in the first place (the smooth voice didn’t hurt either).While I noticed his disability, his hawtness was what got me hooked.Relationship counsellor Wayne Powell explained that this frustration arises as we are socialised to date or marry someone who has no similarity in terms of surname.He further pointed out that this could lead to being uncomfortable and suspicious if someone we are interested in shares our surname.
