Thanks to shame, stereotypes and sex-negativity, sex and disability can be a tricky topic. This means that clients are sometimes afraid to ask, and workers sometimes worry they’re going to screw things up. Luckily, adult star Melinah and sex educator Tess Deveze are really good at talking about this stuff, and they’re joining us for a chat about disability and where it fits, when it comes to sex work.
