Dating for the disabiled
There is no doubt about the fact that dating with disabilities will always present demands that are usually not faced by the majority of people.But lots of men and women have discovered that these challenges can be understood and met in case you are ready to cross the boundary.Deakin University Associate Professor in disability and inclusion Dr Patsie Frawley said research had found people with disabilities were disproportionately affected by breast and cervical cancer — but also by sexually transmitted infection (STI)."If you're not seen as sexual and as a sexual person, the range of sexual health screenings, sexual health prevention and response services won't be offered to you," she said.
Once that happens, issues like disability, inconvenience, social stigma will cease to matter. Know why you are with the person in the first place.
Try and make the most of your life with these thoughts.
Do note that there would be challenges due to the disability, but you had stepped into this with your eyes open.
She said she believed access to sex workers for people with disabilities should be covered under the NDIS.
"Whether you are a wage-earner or you're on any type of benefit from the government, you have a right to spend your money however you want," she said."And if you would like to spend your money hiring the services of a sex worker, I think you should be able to do that."Counsellor and registered NDIS provider Casey Payne said it was a common misconception that people with disabilities were non-sexual."Just because you live with something that's different to everybody else doesn't mean that your life can't still be the same in every aspect, especially in sexual health.
Remember what attracted you to the person initially. Once you focus on the positive aspects of the relationship, life will become much simpler and happier.
