A lot of able-bodied people simply just look at people with disabilities and think they can’t have sex. They think they don’t have the same sexual desire or even more stupidly think they are not physical capable to have sex. If you think that is true you couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Many of our callers are in fact people with physical disabilities and our phone lines would never discriminate when it comes to who can phone in. They have the same sexual appetite as someone without a physical disability and they get just as much tail on our phone lines as any able-bodied person. Below are some of the worst misconceptions that people believe about those with physical disabilities.

1.    Disabled people don’t feel sexual desire: There’s a misconception that disabled people do not want sex or have a strong desire for it, which is completely false. Disabled people want intimacy the same way anyone else wants it. We are all humans and have sexual urges and desires. It’s like sex is a fancy luxury for non-disabled people, it’s a right for everyone walking this planet. We have many people with disabilities on our phone chat lines and it’s a great place where they can feel comfortable. People with disabilities can ask for other disabled people to talk to on our phone lines or they can speak with a non-disabled person, the limits are endless.

2.    Their sex organs don’t work: People just amuse that most people with physical disabilities can’t experience the same sensations as the able-bodied people. Not everyone’s body is the same and we all experience pleasure in different ways. When finding a new partner on our phone lines it’s all about working together with them to figure out what works and communicating. Especially when a disabled person makes a connection with an abled-bodied person, they may have to explain to them what their condition is and how it affects their sex life.

3.    It’s hard for them to find a date: Some disabled people that are in mobility walkers or wheelchairs are immediately judged. People get surprised in some people’s abilities and functions in sexual relationships. It’s a generalization that people with physical disabilities are not seen as desirable or attractive. Also that someone with a physical disability could never find a partner, especially an able-bodied one. Our phone lines are filled with callers who see right past people with physical disabilities and find them hot and desirable because they are human just like them at the end of the day.
