Sexual activity, experiences of intimacy and sexual dysfunctions in adolescents aged 13-18 years with mobility impairment

Lena Jemtå

Growing up with mobility impairment involves unique issues for sexual development. Restricted mobility and disability- related medical problems as well as limited access to participation in social activities could influence sexual activity. The first aim was to investigate experiences of sexual activity and intimacy among adolescents with mobility impairment and to relate these to socio-demographic data and disability characteristics. The second aim was to identify sexual dysfunctions and sexual concerns in this group.
