Embrace your sexuality

Kelly joins Hot Octopuss as our resident sex and disability advisor. If you have a question about sex and how to enjoy it more, regardless of disability, this is the place to ask.

No holding back

Kelly Gordon has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3 which is a genetic disability meaning for her, that she uses an electric wheelchair to get around. Kelly's condition is progressive and has meant that she has faced losing her ability throughout her life especially when her body faced big changes and challenges such as pregnancy.

From a young age, Kelly was outspoken and never let anyone dictate what her disability meant or allowed her to flourish. A key mission for Kelly has been to open up the conversation about sex and disability. Why the subject is ignored by mainstream media and why do so many disabled people simply accept that they will not have the fulfilling sex lives others do.
