From flying by myself on airplane with a damaged wheelchair to meet a guy who paid no attention to me, to waiting 3 hours on a fall evening for a hook up who didn't show and also catching pneumonia, and lastly trying to get home from a hook up gone wrong, only to unintentionally flash people my disabled dick!

Episode 085 - DisabilityAfterDark Reviews “The Sessions”

Hey y'all! In this episode, I review the 2012 movie about sex and disability that won over the world, "The Sessions." I have a lot of feelings about this indie darling that introduced the world to sex, disability and polio! I have an included an essay written by Mark O'Brien, the central figure in this film who works with a sex surrogate to have sex for the very first time. The movie was based on the essay. I am also including a written piece about what the movie might have looked like if it were centred around a woman with disabilities. I hope you enjoy this jam-packed episode!

Episode 098 - That Time I had REALLY Good Sex as a Queer Cripple

This episode is a really fun, simple episode where I tell you all about some great sex I had recently. I wanted to share because we so rarely hear disabled people telling great sex stories. So often our sexual encounters as disabled people are bogged down with ableism, and I wanted to share a moment that was just some really good sex for this queer cripple. Enjoy!
