Woman E: I've got a love/hate relationship with my body. In my head, I can still do the things I used to "pre-MS" but my body just goes, nah, we're not doing that!
How, if at all, does your disability affect your sex drive?
I've had lengthy conversations with men who are shocked that disabled people have the same sexual desires as them and have sex lives too.
I recently spoke with a guy I was at school with and he confessed that he liked me at the time, but couldn't figure out how or if I could have sexual relationships.
Women with disabilities are often portrayed either as fragile flowers or oversexed, needing to be protected from the world and from their own sex drive. Woman D: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome — which causes physical pain and mobility difficulties — depression and anorexia. Most people assume not walking is the worst aspect of my disability but it's not really.
