The Too Hard Basket

Only in the last 60 years or so have people begun to talk openly about sex, but one group is often left out of the discussion.

Only in the last 60 years or so have people begun to talk openly about sex, but one group is often left out of the discussion.

In this brave documentary, producer John Blades playfully explores the subject of sex and the disabled. Blades, who himself is disabled, openly talks with sex workers and their clients about the sexual needs of the disabled community and the power of touch.

The Too Hard Basket is an ABC Radio National 2009 Production.
