is creating Cripping Up Sex With Eva - Sex and Disability Education

My name is Eva Sweeney and I’m a sex educator. I run Cripping Up Sex With Eva, which is my hub for all things sex and disability related. I have been in the sex ed field for over 15 years. By contributing to my patreon you will help make it possible for me to create more workshops and other content for the disability community! Also, you will help me make Cripping Up Sex a job. Doing the classes is the fun part! I spend about 20 hours a week doing PR and outreach to bring as many people to my classes and blogs. These hours are currently unpaid. Your support will help me pay the bills and help me place ads in publications to reach more people. It will also let me give a few classes for free.

I didn’t get into this field because I wanted to help people or I was a teacher. Rather, it was because I didn’t find any applicable information for me when I was a teenager. I have cerebral palsy which affects my entire body. I use a wheelchair to get around and I’m non-verbal, so I spell out what I want to say on a letter board with a laser pointer on my hat. So in my late teens, I was looking for information about how to incorporate my disability into my sex. I also identify as queer, so that’s a whole other layer.

After calling many disability organizations and asking if they have any information about disability and sex and either being told no or being hung up on, I decided to write a handbook. It talks about how to find queer-friendly aides, how to talk to your partner about your disability, how to adapt sex toys, and how to masturbate if you need assistance. Through this book, I was able to travel the country giving workshops on sex and disability. It was an awesome experience as I had people in their 50s coming to me and saying this was the first time they talked about sex ever!

I’m friendly, easy to talk to, and have engaged in discussions with people of all different ages, genders, and abilities. Through my workshops, I learned how to ease people’s discomfort and create a safe space to talk about sex and disability. No question is too uncomfortable, scary, or embarrassing. I’ve heard it all before and I love discussing it all and sharing what I’ve learned. Here is my press kit of available workshops!

I also run a blog where I answer anonymous questions about sex and disability called Crip Q's! So subscribe and you can send me your questions here. So check out my blog who knows, you may find answers to questions you didn’t even know you had!

I also have a blog dedicated to reviewing sex toys with an accessible lens! It gives information for people with disabilities about different sex toys, to help them find the toy that will work best for them. I also have a wishlist of sex toys I hope to review in the future for anyone who wants to donate!
