Disability & Sexuality: Education, Advocacy, & Support

http://www.sexsupport.org/

Misson and activities:

The web page has a forum designed to answer questions regarding sexuality without intimidating people for poor grammar, misspellings, inaccurate word choices, and a lack of knowledge about basic sexuality. Questions can be asked publicly or emailed privately. There are 1000s of resources listed on various pages that are disability- specific, and other pages that are specific to age and gender. There are several pages with original material including a dictionary of sexual teminology designed to be understood by people with very little sexual knowledge and difficulty in reading, a quiz to take with a potential sexual partner to help discuss important issues, and much more.
