Hey and welcome to Cripping Up Sex with Eva. I have been in the sex ed field for over 15 years. I didn’t get into it because I wanted to help people or I was a teacher. Rather, it was because I didn’t find any applicable information for me when I was a teenager.
I have cerebral palsy which affects my entire body. I use a wheelchair to get around and I’m non-verbal, so I spell out what I want to say on a letter board with a laser pointer on my hat. So in my late teens, I was looking for information about how to incorporate my disability into my sex life. I also identify as queer, so that’s a whole other layer.
After calling many disability organizations and asking if they have any information about disability and sex and either being told no or being hung up on, I decided to write a handbook
. It talks about how to find queer-friendly aides, how to talk to your partner about your disability, how to adapt sex toys, and how to masturbate if you need assistance. Through this book, I was able to travel the country giving workshops on sex and disability. It was an awesome experience as I had people in their 50s coming to me and saying this was the first time they talked about sex ever!
Now, I teach online classes on the amazing platform O.school
and I’m available for private consultations. Also, I am available for speaking events at venues such as colleges. Check out a catalog of my available workshops here
, and if you are interested, just email me!
