Facilitated Sex for People with Disabilities

Filed in Blog, Broadcast, Media by on November 19, 2012 1 Comment • views: 2775

With the success of The Sessions starring Helen Hunt and John Hawkes, there has been increased attention on sex surrogates for people with disabilities.  While I am a strong advocate for the use of surrogate partner therapy, I recognize that there are very few trained sexual surrogates in United States and they’re concentrated mainly in California and a few other states. Furthermore many people with disabilities are living on a fixed income that does not allow for the luxury of assistance that is not covered under medical benefits. Facilitated sex, as discussed in this interview with Dr. Mitchell Tepper,  is a more accessible and affordable pathway to sexual expression.

    Very interesting interview. Sounds like a new field and/or job position of the future as we continue to become more open about sexuality and physical challenges.
