A campaign to change the law to allow people living with disabilities better access to sex workers has provoked plenty of discomfort. Why is this so, asks NM News Therapist Zoe Krupka
Kelly Vincent, the South Australian Dignity for Disability MLC, is campaigning to decriminalise prostitution so people living with a disability can have greater access to the services of sex workers. Not unexpectedly, the response to what is one of many such campaigns worldwide has been mixed and often hostile. Is sex a human right? Why is it so hard for us to accept and respond to a call for sexual attention from those who experience sexual dispossession?
