A well known sex therapist and writer founded a charitable organisation campaigning for people with disabilities seeking sexual partners.

"It isn't just about finding a partner but being in a group of people who acknowledge that you are a sexual person regardless of what you look like or sound like."

"We're campaigning for sex to go on the agenda for all occupational therapists or disability agencies so that if somebody in that position wants to, they can have this dealt with professionally."
