Abstract:

One of the basic needs of human beings is sexual gratification. This is true for the handicapped as well. Yet, able- bodied people find it difficult to accept that the disabled have sexual needs. In this ground breaking film, we learn of an experimental program in Switzerland which has aroused considerable interest and much debate. "Sex workers" of both sexes provide sex for a fee to people who are physically or mentally challenged. This documentary explores the motives of both the sex workers and the handicapped individuals who engage in sexual activities with them. Is this prostitution or therapy? For the first time, sex workers have agreed to be filmed as they make love to these individuals. They express strong positive emotions about their work. The doctors who set up the program hope that improving sexual satisfaction will enable the handicapped to achieve other rehabilitation goals.
