SCI Forum Video



Presented on February 10, 2009

Is there sex after spinal cord injury? In this forum video, Kelly Arbor, from Babeland (a sex-toy retailer), discusses how sexuality and intimacy are available to everyone, regardless of disability. He talks about pleasure-based anatomy, familiar and unfamiliar erogenous zones, communication as an erotic tool, masturbation, and using sex toys to open up new possibilities.

Please note: This video is a general presentation of techniques that are options for people with disabilities for enhancing the enjoyment of sexual experiences. This information is of a general nature and does not include specific concerns or risks for people with spinal cord injuries. Before experimenting with any of these techniques, review the techniques and how you plan to use them with your health care provider, in order to limit any risk of injury or complication as a result of your individual disability.This video is of a frank sexual nature. Viewer discretion advised.
