HUMAN NEEDS: STAYING COY AND UNCOMFORTABLE

Home » Events » HUMAN NEEDS: STAYING COY AND UNCOMFORTABLE

Being intimate with another person is a basic human need, but what happens when physical restraints get in the way? Or does it even matter?

How difficult is it to stay coy while also having a disability? How easy is it to be intimate between the sheets while suffering from an illness? We have invited a group of experts to discuss the trials and tribulations of intimacy, disability and inclusivity.

Our panel will include freelance journalist and writer Louise Bruton, IMAGE magazine’s Niamh O’ Donoghue and Ph.D. researcher in sexuality studies at Dublin City University, Caroline West. Writer Alicia Pau Keane will read from her composition “Scare” to open the evening, which explores intimate moments alone while dealing with the psychological effects an illness can have.
