    a point of view - bbc radio 4 :

    A Normal NeedTom Shakespeare ponders why disabled sexuality is still so often taboo.

    "Sexuality is a human right", he points out....and says we must set aside the notion that disabled people have "special needs" when it comes to sexuality.

    "We have all the normal needs of non-disabled people".

    Producer: Adele Armstrong.
