The sexual needs of people with disabilities have been considered within the broad areas of emotional needs, practical problems and contraception. In practice, concerns about all these areas are often present at the same time, although one aspect may dominate any one particular consultation. Where an able-bodied person, if she or he so wishes, can choose to ask for contraceptive help of only the most technical kind, people with handicaps are more likely to need further help to overcome emotional and physical difficulties, if they are to be able to express their sexuality as fully as possible. It is therefore particularly important that doctors and nurses who are trying to help such people should be trained and skilled so that they can provide help that is based on real insight into the unique situation of each patient, as well as a true perception of their conscious and unconscious needs.
