How come it’s perfectly natural and okay needing help for having your diaper changed, your genitals washed and your mouth fed, but offensive and perverse expressing your sexual frustrations and needs ? – that is, if you’re disabled! How come we tend to accept the former as fundamental human rights, but not the latter?
Our fundamental attitude is, that sexuality is an integrated part of every single persons personality, a basic need and aspect of being human. A fundamental and universal human right. Our mission is to fight the wrongly held belief, that disabled people neither have a sexuality, nor sexual needs. And furthermore, that disabled people do not have the right to live out and fulfill these needs on equal terms as others.
Handisex is founded and run by Asgerbo Holm and Michelle Miller: We both study sexology and work as helpers in relation to disabled people. Our team is supported by external partners, bringing exciting ideas, innovations and services to the table.
Our services include:
Counselling to helpers, families and associated
