Sexuality and disability

Dear AIEJI

My name is Kim Steimle. I work as a social educator and I have an education as a sexuality advisor. I work together with Asgerbo Persson who is educated in health and communication and as a sexologist. Everybody has a sexuality, also people with disabilities. For several years, we have been helping people with disabilities live a fulfilling life, which also includes sexuality. In Denmark we have a solid legal foundation that is very clear on where the boundaries are and what we can and can’t do as professionals, regarding disability and sexuality. However, even in Denmark we often experience this topic to be very difficult to handle among social educators. We are very curious to know how this topic is dealt with in the rest of the world.

Do you have a legal foundation regarding the work with disability and sexuality in your country?

How do you respond if one of your clients asks you about sex or shows clear sexual frustrations?

How do you handle sexual abuse committed against or by one of your clients?

Please contact us by e-mail if you would like to share some of your challenges and frustrations or tell us about how you handle this difficult topic. We hope that we can exchange useful ideas.

Kind regards

Kim Steimle (kimrasser@hotmail.com)
