The liberalisation of attitudes to sex on the one hand and the increased tolerance and acceptance of our society to the needs of the disabled on the other, provides an opportunity to articulate the problems faced by the disabled with respect to sex. However, little is said on the subject in Poland and the main way in which society views the disabled - or would like to view them - is as asexual objects which have no sensual needs. The unwillingness to face a difficult problem often deprives the disabled of the opportunity to experience intimate experiences and inter-personal relationships. The authoress attempts to discover what chances our disabled have of a satisfying sexual life and where the social sources of the difficulties experienced lie.
