Spinal Cord Injury Sex

Some of the first questions after a new spinal cord injury are:  “Will I be able to make love and enjoy sex, even though I have a Spinal Cord Injury?” and “Will anyone still want to love me?”

Since the majority of spinal cord injuries occur to young men between the ages of 16 and 30, sexual function is an urgent personal issue.  And yet, sex is still an uncomfortable subject for many people, especially in a hospital or rehabilitation setting where the focus is on physical therapy and healing. And it’s not just the person with a Spinal Cord Injury who is wondering about sex. Parents wonder if their children will still be able to get pregnant or father a child; spouses and partners worry about what sex after a Spinal Cord Injury might be like, and if it’s even possible.

But all too often, people keep these questions to themselves—maintaining a kind of sexual silence—and hope that eventually they will get it figured out.  Many never do.
