Hot Sex and Disability at the Movies

Enjoy the Oscars Sunday!

As we head toward the Oscars on Sunday, there's one little-noted trend: sex and disability was hot at the movies last year to an unprecedented degree. And not just in degree but in kind. Three major releases prominently featured sexually active disabled people. The narratives range from light to dark, but are all decidedly what one New York Times reviewer called "sex positive." The explicit erotic scenes offered this year between nondisabled and disabled people mark a welcome step forward in how disability and sexuality are portrayed in popular culture
