The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability

My book review of The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability: For all of us who live with disabilities, chronic pain & illness is now online at Sex in the Public Square.

Introduction

The sexuality of disabled members of our society is perhaps one of the most closeted, or at least overlooked, topics in American public discourse. Rarely is the topic addressed even by the most strident of sex positive advocates. The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability was written to rectify this deficiency in our public square. The authors, Miriam Kaufman, M.D., Cory Silverberg, and Fran Odette, take a unique and personal approach to their mission by lacing the book with actual responses from a survey done by phone and internet. These survey responses faithfully guide the book toward its objective.

    I’m usually a “hope for the best, prepare for the worst” kinda guy, but in your case, I’m just going to keep sticking to the former part, and screw the latter.

    In accordance with the studies that show a small but significant disadvantage to people who know they are being prayed for, I will do my part and not pray for your recovery. I’d like to have you around awhile, and I don’t want to provoke the invisible zombie who lives in the sky to go mucking about where (s)he/it ought not.
