Sexuality and Sexual Options after SCI

Sexuality remains an important part of the life of a person who has become a wheelchair user, but little is generally known about the options a person with a spinal cord injury has to resume an intimate relationship.

This manual, sponsored by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, explains the changes that a spinal cord injury causes in sexual functioning in men and women, and clearly explains the options that can be considered for a sexual relationship. The booklet also examines the emotional impact of spinal cord injury and the resumption of a relationship.
