Despite being the year 2016, for too many families, sex is still a taboo subject. If you have a disability, even more so. I was completely ignorant of what was happening to my body when I reached puberty. While I eventually achieved a healthy understanding of my sexuality, the road I took was much longer and more confusing than it should have been.
I hope this three part series helps in some small way. But before I start, a few words of caution.
Warning # 1 : Mature Content
This post contains mature language and subject matter. Yes, I’m talking about sex, and in order to be of any use, details must be shared. And, boy, do I share, so, turn away now if you don’t like TMI (Too Much Information).
Warning # 2: NOT Advice
This is NOT a how-to, NOT a guide, and NOT any kind of advice column. It is just one dwarf’s experiences with sexuality. It is simply a story of I learned about sex, but with the added complexity that physical disabilities can bring.
And with that somewhat lengthy introduction out of the way, on with the post!
