Stylish Fetish Video Released

Within the disabled community there has always been an interest in the ‘bizarre’ sex-wise as anyone who has ever attended the ‘Night of the senses’ or the ‘Sex Maniacs Ball’ as it used to be that is run by the Outsiders charity.   Truly I have never seen so many interesting deviations from the so-called sexual norm in my life.   So I was delighted when a really cool ‘grunge-style’ video crossed my inbox produced by a fetish dating site  – fetishwombat.com – which is graphically striking and has a compelling musical soundtrack.

I love the outfits and the whole spirit of the video.  I have been talking recently with our Sexpert Robin on our podcast to discuss more about disability and fetish since we had excellent feedback when she talked about amputee pretenders in a recent podcast episode.   I must ask her to do more on the subject.

New Podcast Episode is available for download.

Scope Helps Disabled Couples Normalise Sex

I must say how impressed I am with the video Scope have released showing disabled couples getting frisky.

Sex is a wonderful thing for all of us and we all enjoy it in different ways.  I know how wonderful I feel when I go to the Erotic Awards event – Night of the SEnses’ and see the variety of delicious sexualities being acted out by folk with all ranges of disability.   This is why I am so proud to be running disabilitymatch which helps so many UK daters look beyond the disability and enjoy the person.

Dating with Crohn’s Disease and IBD

We have just produced a new video for YouTube all about Crohn’s Disease.  We realise how difficult it is for people with bowel problems and the resulting issues with intimacy.  Disabilitymatch is a great solution for daters who have problems such as IBD, ulcerative colitis and colostomy pouches..

If you view this video please like it and comment. When you comment do let us know what sort of topics you would like us to do videos about.  In a later post we will discuss tips on how to develop intimacy when one or other partner has a stoma and what is the etiquette when you start staying over at their place.

Disabled charity boss paid a ton of money.

Ps have called for an inquiry into why a charitable scheme providing cars for the disabled paid its chief executive more than £1million in bonuses and benefits last year.

As reported in The Sunday Times, Mike Betts, head of not-for-profit company Motability Operations, took home bonuses totalling £911,915 in the year to September 2013, as well as a £125,000 payment in lieu of pension. This was on top of his basic salary of £501,900.

Contracted by the Motability charity, the company provides 630,000 vehicles for disabled people, including those injured while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, with customers using their disability benefit payments to pay for the scheme.

John Mann, the Labour MP for Bassetlaw, who has examined the scheme’s finances, branded the situation as “scandalous”. He said there was no reason for Mr Betts, 52, to receive such bonuses because the company had no captive market and no competition.

He said: “There is no basis for any bonus at all. This money could be better spent on the disabled. It is an unreasonable and unfair amount of money to be paid.”

Under new, stricter criteria for eligibility, anybody who can walk more than 20 metres, even if this is with the aid of a prosthetic, crutches or walking stalk, will no longer be entitled to a vehicle.

Lord Sterling, the chairman and co-founder of the Motability charity, responding on Betts’s behalf, said: “Mike Betts is one of the most able executives I have ever come across.

“He is worth every penny he is paid. He runs Motability Operations with extremely high service levels which provide empathy and support for its disabled customers well beyond the norm.”

Neil Johnson, chairman of Motability Operations, added: “Mike Betts is an outstanding [chief executive officer] who has succeeded in leading Motability Operations over the last decade transforming the culture to achieve consistently high rates of customer satisfaction and value for money.”
