Cerebral Palsy and Sex

2003, 25:00 minutes, colour, english


People with Cerebral Palsy speak frankly about their sexuality and demonstrate how they enjoy full sex lives.

Cerebral Palsy is the result of damage to the motor skills section of the brain due to oxygen deprivation that occurs as the baby travels down the birth canal to be born. Most individuals who live with this disability are above average intelligence. They are thoughtful and sensitive. They also tend to have a higher than normal sex drive.

Cerebral Palsy and Sex interviews three people with cerebral palsy about their attitudes on and experiences with sex. It shows them having sexual relations with their partners and alone. The film was made primarily to be directed to people with disabilities and those who care for them, but is also a challenge to the able bodied society to accept difference and alternative standards of sexual attractiveness and capability.
