I'm doing a summer research project in association with my college, Occidental College. The main premise is I'm researching various physical disabilities and how they affect sexuality for people with disabilities. I'm researching medical information, but as you know. just researching medical information does not give us the whole picture. To supplement, I'd like to interview real people with disabilities to get a firsthand account.
A little background on me: I'm 24 years old and I have quadriplegic cerebral palsy. My major is Gender Studies and I have been interested and researching in the field of disability and sex for many years. I have discovered that there is not a lot of good sex-positive research and information available. So that's basically where I'm coming from.
I need all people, from all genders, sexual orientations, age groups, abilities, and levels of experience. This interview can be anonymous If you are interested, please reply by filling out the preliminary survey questions below.
1. How do you identify based on gender?
2. What disability do you have?
3. How old are you?
4. Describe your sexual orientation.
I'm fairly interested. I'll fill out this much.
1. I'm a male and identify as being so.
2. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
3. 22, 23 in August.
4. I'm a straight man. Almost boringly so. Never had any attractions toward men. But unfortuantely, as time goes on it looks like I won't get sex unless I pay for it. I think about "becoming" asexual out of frustation and bitterness. But no, I am attracted to women and have urges to have sex with them. I still hold out hope that I find that special someone.
1. Male, identify as such
2. Spinal Muscular Atrophy
3. 25 going on 26
