Sex Rights for the Disabled?
Appel, Jacob M
Journal of medical ethics 2010 Mar ; 36(3): 152-4

However, health professionals and activists are increasingly recognising the inherent sexuality of disabled persons and attempting to find ways to accommodate their intimacy needs. This essay explores several ethical issues arising from such efforts.
