The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability: For All of Us Who Live with Disabilities, Chronic Pain, and Illness based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is an incredible book for both PWDs (people with disabilities) and TABs (Temporarily Able Bodied)! It is an accessible and inclusive book on sexuality that incorporates positive messages and information for PWDs. It is the "ultimate" guide but obviously can't have all possible information on the subject. It however has an incredibly extensive reference guide in the back of the book which provides you with pretty much everything you could need to look up in more detail. It is for disability, chronic pain, and illness so it cannot possibly cover every possible sexuality related topic for every single disability. However, it does a good job trying to cover the basics and point you int he right direction to find out the rest. I learned a LOT from this book! I have shared it with a number of people and have yet to find someone who hasn't learned from this book.
My boyfriend is a paraplegic and I thought this book would be helpful in discovering different positions for us. It wasn't! There were only a handful of illustrations. Most of the information in the book was stuff that I (and I'm sure most people would) already know. It broke down the birds and the bees step by step, so maybe for some people this book will be useful. But for me, it was a waste of my time and money.
