Abstract

People have sexual needs, expressions, drives, and desires. Sexuality should be a positive part of the human experience and human life. People with an intellectual disability, like everyone else, have sexual feelings, needs, and desires. However, some aspects can be essentially different for them. This warrants special attention.
