DisabledSexGuide.com is an adult resource that explores and celebrates the complexity of human sexuality.
By representing the sexuality of disabled persons, we aim to help break the stereotype that sex and pleasure are only for certain types of bodies.
A note on language
Being called Disabled Sex Guide, this publication’s name embraces identity-first language.
Identity-first vs person-first
To be more clear, placing the word “Disabled” before “Sex” as a descriptor, similar to how someone might say, “I am a disabled person” highlights disability as an identity.
The phrase “I am a person living with disabilities,” on the other hand, is an example of person-first language. It mentions people before naming any form of disability or condition.
Language and identity matter
Our mission is to present disability and sexuality in a positive and supportive manner—one that resists fetishizing disability and is committed to respect and consent.
A strong preference for identity-first language, in particular, exists within the Deaf and Autistic communities.
