DEBUT Sex is one of the defining experiencing of human life that nurtures and enriches the soul. So why shouldn’t those with disabilities get in on all that loving? Debut cartoonist Andrews brings his personal experience to this very discussion, drawing his own persona as the narrator of this slim guide discussing questions about enjoying sex as a disabled person. Zeroing in on core emotional issues, he dispels myths about disabled bodies, an addresses the need for communication, dealing with sexual rejection based on one’s disability, preparing for sex with comfort and ease in mind, considering thoughtful positions desired for pleasure, and the use of toys.
VERDICT This fun and informative guide, with clean, expressive art, delivers body positivity messages and nonmedical advice with a sense of mischievous, contagious fun. Rather than dwell on physical restrictions, the central thrust is showing what can be done, making sex with disability a experience worth pursuing.
