In this episode, I take a look at sex, disability and the law. We talk briefly about The Ugly Laws, Eugenics, and discuss two cases that examine consent, sex, disability and the law. Through these cases I explore how the courts and our legal systems have a lot of work to do in understanding disability, and suggest perhaps that the courts would rather rely on ableist prejudices than looking at things further.
In this episode, I talk candidly about my relationship to porn as a queer cripple, and how I came to learn about it in my youth. In this first part of a miniseries I am calling "PwD: Porn While Disabled", I share why I think disability and porn are totally important, potentially problematic, and uncover why I myself might want to embark in the industry.
In this episode, I chat with "Dating Coach on Wheels" [www.datingcoachonwheels.com], Amin Lakhani about his experiences with sex, disability, tight clothes, jerking off, bow ties and muscular dystrophy. This is definitely one of my fave episodes so far! Enjoy!
In ths episode, I take a look at some flirting advice from the book "The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability". I talk about how I feel about some of this advice and whether or not I believe the advice holds up in the real-life disabled flirting scenarios... p.s. I dont think the advice does. I talk about my feelings around "Be Yourself" and "Be Bold" advice as a disabled person. I suggest that the onus to "be bold", etc. really shouldn't be placed on the disabled individual. Just some thoughts.
This episode had me riled up and angry about the way the media ran stories from parents of children with disabilities without the children's consent. I focus on 2 stories here about two parents who consider hiring sex workers for their sons to experience sex. I had lots of things to say about that (mostly angry things), and I also touch on disability activists Carly Findlay and Kim Sauder's thoughts on the matter. What do you think about parents talking about their disabled child's sex lives to the media?
For this episode, I got to sit down with disabled activist Alex Haagaard. We talked about the intersectionality found on the autism spectrum w/ respect to sexuality.

In this episode, I talk to Eva who is a young, non-disabled sex educator, making sex education available via her Youtube Channel "What's My Body Doing".

In this episode, we talk about butt stuff...but not in the way you might be expecting. I sat down with Kelly Bracken who reached out to the showing wanting to share her experiences with an ileostomy bag and how this has affected her sexual confidence. The interview is fun, honest and touches on a topic that so many of us are afraid to go near. Luckily, Kelly knows how to stay sexy when shit happens.
In this episode, I talk about my gimpy genitals; the way I have come to understand my sexual organs and my body through my relationship to disability is thoroughly, and hilariously explored.
This episode delves into the reality of touch and disability. We talk about how touch influences our sexuality as disabled people. I share my thoughts on how touch as a disabled man, and how this has played a role in my sex life, and I talk about what touch really means to me as a queer crippled man.
In this episode, I sit down with Youtuber Davey Wavey (www.daveywavey.tv). We talk about body image, boys, sex and disability. I am pretty much still pinching myself that he agreed to do it with me. It was a really funny, sexy, flirty show that made me crush on Davey and his work even more than I did before.
In this super special episode, I share a project that I have been working on with the National Film Board of Canada around my work in sexuality, disability and queerness; a documentary short called Picture This. I talk with Producer Lea Marin and Director Jari Osborne about the importance of a film like this, the ins and outs of producing this project, and I share what it was like to be the subject of a piece like this. I have included the Electronic Press Kit Link here so you can see clips, read the synopsis, and get ready to Picture This.
In this episode, we talk about the impact that money has on dating and disability. The feelings about not having enough money to go on dates, and the feelings when your date pays for you. All of this and more is explored in this new episode!
