Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Which leaves you with the conclusion that masturbation and sex gadgetry is all the disabled will get

Sexual aids for the disabled also includes ones to allow two of them the 'get it on'. I have read before (years ago, so I am not likely to find those articles) that quite often, since there are disabled communities, romantic events between two disabled persons occur. A common problem, which I would hope that a country like Sweden could do well on, is that they might need some help figuring out how to 'do it' and that it is difficult and uncomfortable to get this help. Unless care professional have the explicit duty to address the issue, quite often it just never comes up. The gadgetry involved is often expensive and evaluation of individual situations might be necessary to find custom solutions. For the mentally disabled the issue of sex never being addressed is even more common, and discomfort about it is very large. I am hoping that this is part of the debate in the parliament and that they agree to fund something useful.
