Sex, Relationships and Learning Disability Seminar
Sex, Relationships and Learning Disability
It’s time for emancipation!
There are said to be three things we tend not to discuss with people with a learning disability
… But Lennon and McCartney didn’t sing “All You Need is Sex” – they spoke about needing love ! Life without close adult relationships is poorer and lonelier for any of us. “And the Lord God said ‘It is not good for the man to be alone’ ” (Genesis 2:18)
