people always assume because i'm disabled that i can't get up or have no interest in sex. the fact is i can lsdt longer now then before i was injured but because i'm in a chair, its automaticly assumed. Most of us are just crippled not dead. We have working genitals just like everyone else.

The counting friends on your fingers part was so sad.

It's just ignorance that's all. People are ill-educated. It's like when someone mentions the word disabled most people tend to think straight away of someone in a wheelchair and even though they are disabled it doesn't stop there being other disabilties too. I have crohn's disease which makes me disabled but I can function physically fine. I'm also very sexual, in fact i work in a sex clinic and am studying towards becoming a sexologist to specialise in the elderly and the disabled. It's also ignorant when people assume that people with peyronie's disese or erectile dysfunction or anyone who doesn't engage in intercourse isn't sexual. Many people have certain problems with their genitals but can still be very sexual. People are just not open-minded or intelligent to understand that sex isn't just a case of penis in vagina and in and out, it's so much more than that x

I have a disability and use a wheelchair. Everything works well down south, of course. Sadly, many women don't give me a chance. Nudity is good too.

Most people are shallow.

Let's be honest, most relationships start because of physical attraction and many people just don't find disabled people sexually attractive. But, there's lots of types of people that are on the "not physically attractive" list. This isn't unique to disabled people - if you're too fat, thin, tall, short, etc., you get passed over, too.

So, the average person looks at another person and says "wow, they don't look so hot" and then they move on. Then, there's people that see someone as a person and not just a sex object. Those are the people that engage in the "getting to know you" game, and many times they find that if they spend just a little time talking with somebody, suddenly those physical imperfections don't seem to matter as much.

I never just write someone off because of something superficial. I would've missed out on many good conversations and passed over a lot of good friends if I did!
