Physical disabilities can make life difficult for individuals and every day is a new battle for them. In addition to this the insensitivity and lack of consideration from society makes it worse. But it’s conversations about sexuality of disabled people that society usually shies away from.

In the Czech Republic, a new initiative is trying to ensure what is being described as the right to sex for disabled people. Despite controversy in a society known to be otherwise open minded, sexual assistants are prepared to help disabled people explore their sexuality and fulfil their desires.

Rozkos bez Rizika which means Pleasure without Risk is an organisation which is training five women and most of them being former sex workers; these sexual assistants don’t necessarily offer just sex. One of them says she uses touching, hugging and massage to help disabled clients open up sexual energy.

The right to sexual pleasure for disabled people is being taken seriously in several European nations like Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and Netherlands, with some governments financially supporting sexual assistance.

A 44-year-old disabled man in Czech Republic said that he was able to experience a woman’s touch for the first time in his life thanks to sexual assistance projects.
