Our Mission

Pleasurable is a community of disabled peers, researchers, practitioners, activists, allies, students, artists, and others who believe that access to sexuality, pleasure, and intimacy is a fundamental human right. As per the historic rallying cry, Nothing About Us Without Us, we are majority-led by persons with disabilities.

The aim of Pleasurable is to bring disability-specific issues around pleasure and sexual access to the fore of social justice conversations. By extension, Pleasurable seeks to empower more disabled people to contribute, as professionals and peers with lived experience, to the fields of sexology, sexual health services, and sex-positive communities/ conversations. In this time of increased body-positivity and body awareness, the topic of disability is often segregated from public dialogues around sexuality. This is unacceptable. We believe that disability justice is inclusive of sexual freedom and true sexual freedom cannot exist without disability awareness.
