Disabled and Seeking Sexual Surrogates.
I often have erotic dreams. 我常常做春夢。
Oddly enough, and this happens in most of my dreams, I’m not disabled.
So I can move and often do the opposite of my limitations in real life.
– Black on the outer edge? – Yes.
– 眼皮外緣要塗上黑色嗎？ – 是的。
Voice-over: Laetitia Rebord is a 30-year-old translator and teacher with 7 full-time aides. Spinal muscular atrophy limits movement to her left thumb, left toe, and facial muscles. But she still has a strong sense of touch.
I have been touched by people since childhood.
I think I need to be touched for pleasure, not just for function
I am a virgin. I have no problem saying it.
Voice-over: She wants to experience sex.
Often I am told: ”But don’t you have other things to think about?”
O.K., well, that’s nice.
Does that mean I am prohibited from having sex?
Voice-over: She sought sexual partners to friends, dating sites, and even male escorts. But her handicap scared many away. Today, she campaigns to legalize sexual surrogates for the 1.8 million disabled friends.
Eventually, one has to address the issue and understand why we are demanding this.
I can’t move. I can’t masturbate.
Voice-over: Surrogates are permitted in some countries, but not in France. In March, the National Ethics Committee stated the practice was an unethical use of the human body for commercial purposes.
The sexuality of the disabled cannot be considered as a right. 身障者的性不能被視為一種權利。
That would create a state obligation, as if it were responsible for their situation.
Voice-over: Even some advocates of the disabled are opposed to sexual assistance, worried that the practice would push them further into society shadows.
It seems that people are saying we are incapable of inspiring love.
It’s a way for society to get rid of the problem.
Voice-over: But sexual surrogacy is a reality in France, where contacts are made by word of mouth.
I take their hand and slide it against me so they can feel it.
And I do the same with them.
Generally, we are naked.
Voice-over: 66-year-old Aminata Gregory retired as a Dutch construction supervisor, and has performed sexual assistance in France for more than a year. She charges her 10 clients about one $130 per session.
Some men tell me: “That’s it. I am a man now.”
It is important for me to put my body against his.
But I don’t practice sexual intercourse.
No oral sex, no kisses and no penetration
I am not a sex worker. I can’t do it.
Voice-over: Today, she is in the south of France meeting a client for the fifth time.
– I put a little lipstick on you. – It doesn’t matter.
– 我留了一點口紅印在你臉頰上。 – 沒有關係。
Voice-over: 49-year-old Daniel Doriguzzi, suffers from Friedreich’s ataxia, a degenerative neurological condition that impairs coordination.
The goal for me is to “fly solo.”
At the beginning of the session, we put ourselves in a bubble, and become a normal couple.
We talk to each other. We ask each other whatever we want.
And the end of the session, we break the bubble. It’s over.
It helps not to fall in love.
Can I bring my energy as a retiree to move things forward in France?
In Holland, the issue has been resolved.
I am at the start of something that is evolving and I like that.
Once this is solved, I will go home.
