What do you really want to know about sex after spinal cord injury? Most newly injured people have concerns
about what their sex lives will be like: will they ever have sex again (or for the first time)? Although sex
may change after SCI, most people still want to develop satisfying intimate relationships. How do they navigate
sexuality with an SCI? In this forum, real people with spinal cord injuries talk about their real sexual experiences since injury. Two men with tetraplegia (quadriplegia) and one woman with paraplegia discussed the good, the bad, and the funny. A rehab physician answered questions related to medical issues and sexual activity. Note: This video is of a frank sexual nature. Viewer discretion advised.
