Emily's talk on sex and disability is inspiring and thought-provoking. She addresses the issue of sex and relationships for the disabled, and how disabled communities can have access to this, which others usually take for granted.

Emily hopes to elimate the sexual taboo that surrounds disability by 'undressing' it. She tackles the subject of sex and disability head on in a revealing and open talk. Expect to feel uncomfortable and empowered by this subject
