Welcome!

What is #DISIRability?

I came up with this hashtag to explore the connection between desire and disabilities. Sexual Health for people with disabilities is such a taboo topic that needs to be addressed. I have struggled to find answers to many questions around sexual health and relationships throughout my life. I know I am not the only one.

I have been learning as I go. Join me as I share my personal journey through adolescence, adulthood and middle-age as a cisgendered bisexual woman with Spina Bifida. Cisgender means I was born female and I identify as a female.

Topics will include how to meet people, flirting and making connections, gender identity and sexual orientation, telling your partner about your disability, fertility issues, alternative relationships, kink and power exhange, aging with a disability, preparing for surgeries such as hysterectomy, talking with doctors about your needs, and more.

Two things I need to warn you before we start. First, I am not a doctor so I cannot give any medical advice.

The other thing I have to warn you is that I do my best to be open and brutally honest. I feel that being open and vulnerable is the best way to do this because I am sure that there are many of you out there going through some of these same issues and you need to hear this…or you might have a partner that has some of these issues and it will help you understand what your partner may be going through.  

I welcome your comments and feedback. I am sharing my perspective and would love to hear your perspective. You can use the comment section or share online with #DISIRability. Join me in this important conversation.

You can connect with me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @DISIRability or email disirability@gmail.com.
