Description

The sexuality and sexual rights of people with dementia are deeply controversial issues. In this presentation, I draw on Kafer’s (2013) question-centered methodology to pose questions related to dementia and sex using a disability studies perspective. The questions I explore focus on consent, rights to intimacy and sex, and intersectionality.
