Saul Isbister, "A UNIQUE RESOURCE FACILITATING ACCESS TO SEX SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY" Abstract to WAS, April 07

Disability and sex worker rights activists and educators identified a lack of knowledge and appropriate resources guiding better practice in the provision of sex services to people with disabilities. The Touching Base project evolved in 2001 through a forum that bought together sex workers, people with disabilities, and their support networks. Touching Base Incorporated operates under the principle that people with a disability have the intrinsic right to sexual expression, to develop relationships, have sex, explore and express their sexuality and achieve intimacy without personal or systemic barriers. Touching Base challenges barriers such as discriminatory workplace policies that impede the right of a person with a disability to choose to pursue the sexual lifestyle of their choice. Further, Touching Base negates the concept that sex workers are the only option available for people with disabilities seeking to explore intimacy or express sexual desires.
