JOHN’S FOR INSTANCE YOU WANT TO MEET SOMEONE THAT WAY AREN’T ACCESSIBLE SO THEY’RE OFF LIMITS FOR US.>>Interview: DATING ONLINE I THINK IF YOU HAVE A VISIBLE DIS ONLY — SO IT’S A VERY DIFFERENT CONUNDRUM FOR A PEOPLE WITH A VISIBILITY DISABILITY BECAUSE YOU DON’T GET THE CHOICE OF WHETHER OR NOT TO DISCLOSE>>THINK MOST OFTEN THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE, YOU KNOW, THEY THINK THEY HAVE TO BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY AND YOU DON’T, YOU BEHAVE THE SAME, WE’RE PEOPLE. WE’RE JUST PEOPLE, DIFFERENT BUDDY, SHAPES OR SIZES, YOU KNOW , THAT TYPE OF THING AND AS I GOT OLDER I WAS PICKYER ANYWAY SO I SORT OF PUT MYSELF IN THE POSITION WHERE I WAS THE ONE MAKING THE CHOICES SO.>>Interview: ONE OF THE STORIES I LIKE TO TELL IF I HADN’T OF GONE TO A CAMP FOR YOUTH OF DISABILITYS A FRIEND OF HERS WAS WORKING OUT. IT WAS ACTUALLY THE DISABILITY THAT DREW US CLOSER TOGETHER OR PUT US IN EACH OTHER’S PATH AT ALL. I DON’T THINK THEY VIEW PEOPLE WITH DISABILITYS HAVING SEXUAL FEELINGS AND SOME PEOPLE IN THE WORLD AT LARGE DON’T HAVE SEXUAL FEELINGS AND I DON’T THINK PEOPLE REALISE IT’S THE SAME FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITYS WE CAN HAVE MESSY BREAKUPS JUST LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE AND THERE’S A SENSIBILITY TO INFATAH LIES THE PERSON AND MAKE THEM A CHILD ALWAYS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEIR COGNITIVE CAPACITY MAY BE AND THERE’S — PEOPLE CANNON EYES THE OTHER PARTNER IF THE OTHER PARTNER IS NOT DISABLED, IT’S SO GREAT YOU STAY WITH THIS PERSON. IN MY RELATIONSHIP I’M JUST PART OF THE EQUASION AND YES MY PARTNER DOES CARE-GIVING TASKS FOR ME BUT I DO SOME FOR HER AS WELL AND THAT REALLY SHOCKS PEOPLE BOTH THAT I HAVE A PARTNER AT ALL OR MY PARTNER IS NOT DISABLED.>>Debbie: DATING AND ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS CAN BE A CHALLENGE THERE’S THE STIGMA THAT PEOPLE WITH DISABILITYED AROUND MATE MATERIAL BUT SEX WORKERS ARE ADVOCATING FOR NEW ATTITUDES.

THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO AND WHAT STUFF MAKES THEM TIRED AND THEIR LIMITS. THAT KIND OF STUFF.>>Reporter: THOSE CLIENTS WIND UP FEELING ENCOURAGED INSTEAD OF JUDGED.>>Interview: IT MAKES THEM FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEY THANKED ME AFTER WORDS FOR LETTING THEM BY MY CLIENT BECAUSE OF THEM GET TURNED DOWN OR THEY’RE EMBARRASSED AND JUST TO TRY SOMETHING THEY’RE THANKFUL FOR IT.>>Reporter: IT’S NOT UNCOMMON FOR OTHER SEX WORKERS TO REFUSE THOSE CLIENTS FOR HURTING THEM AND PLUS ACCESSIBILITY IS A HUGE ISSUE. SUZIE REMEMBERS HELPING ONE MAN WHO USES A WHEELCHAIR TO GET UP SOME STAIRS AND SHE PUT HIM OVER HER SHOULDER WHILE SHE HELD ONTO THE RAILING.>>Interview: HE WAS REALLY EMBARRASSED ABOUT IT, I FELT BAD BECAUSE HE WAS SO EMBARRASSED ABOUT IT AND DIDN’T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW ABOUT IT AND I TOLD HIM IT WAS OK AND HE JUST TRIED AND I TRIED AND IT WAS JUST EMOTIONAL FOR HIM TO GO THROUGH.>>Interview: PEOPLE WHO LIVE WITH DISABILITYS EVERY DAY STILL HAVE A RIGHT TO THEIR SEXUALITY.>>Reporter: HEATHER JARVIS IS IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH SEX WORKERS AND ONE OF THE THINGS THEY TOLD HER IS THAT IF THEY HAVE A CLIENT WHO IS DEAF, THEY’LL TEXT BACK AND FOURTH TO COMMUNICATE.>>Interview: SEX WORKERS ARE ABLE TO HAVE MORE HONEST CONVERSATIONS WITH CLIENTS ABOUT WHAT THEY NEED AND LOOKING FOR AND WHEN IT COMES TO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITYS FROM THE SEX WORKERS WE HEAR THAT PEOPLE WITH DISABILITYS ARE FEELING REALLY LONELY AND ALIENATED AS THOUGH THEIR SEXUALALITY DOESN’T GET TO EXIST.>>Reporter: THEY’RE JUST LIKE ANYBODY ELSE. I MEAN A LOT OF THEM WEREN’T BORN WITH THEIR DISABILITYS AND SOMETHING HAPPENED AND ITS MADE THEM THAT WAY THEY’RE AVERAGE PEOPLE. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THEY HAVE EXTRA STRUGGLES AND HAVING TO GO OVER STAIRS IS A STRUGGLE FOR THEM VERSUS THE REGULAR PERSON WITHOUT A DISABILITY WHO DOESN’T EVEN HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THAT STUFF.>>Reporter: MANY SEX WORKERS DO HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THAT AND THEY’RE LIVING WITH DISABILITYS THEMSELVES AND SUCH AS CHRONIC PAIN, EPILEPSIES, CEREBRAL PALSY AND HEARING LOSS.>>Interview: OFTEN WHEN WE KNOW THAT DISABILITY PLAYS A HUGE ROLE IN PEOPLE NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND ADEQUATE EMPLOYMENT PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO MAKE ENDS MEET AND MAKE AN INCOME AND KEEP THEMSELVES GOING SO WHEN SEX WORK IS AN AREA WHERE WOMEN CAN MAKE MORE THAN MEN IN THE JOB INDUSTRY A LOT OF SEX WORK ERS WITH DISABILITYS FIND SEX WORK A PLACE TO GET EMPLOYMENT THAT CAN BE WITH THEIR SCHEDULE MEETING THEIR BODY’S NEEDS.>>Reporter: SUZIE SAYS THAT’S NOT WHY SHE’S IN THE BUSINESS. BUT WORKING WITH CLIENTS WITH DISABILITYS IS IMPORTANT TO HER.>>Interview: I KNOW IT’S HARD TO FIND SOMEONE TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH IN THAT WAY ESPECIALLY WITH A DISABILITY. I MEAN, IT TAKES A LOT OF GUTS TO GO OUT AND DO THINGS LIKE THAT AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU DO HAVE A DISABILITY, HAVING TO DO THAT AND SHOW YOUR FACE.>>Reporter: CBC NEWS, ST.
