Virtual Special Issue Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Sexuality and Disability

To celebrate the publication of the 35th volume-year of the journal Sexuality and Disability, we present eight hand-picked articles to read, download, and copy freely until August 9, 2017. I was invited to select a small sample of important articles for this occasion. In reviewing decades of articles, a renewed appreciation of the international breadth and importance of the journal’s published works became evident.
Launched in March 1978, Sexuality and Disability continues to be the premier international journal dedicated to the mission to focus on the key themes related to sexuality and disability. Over the decades, both sexuality and disability have been able to find an increasing voice that resonates with individuals who care about the human condition and ways to support improvement. The growing awareness of and on-going professional commitment to the topic of sexuality and disability is encouraging for not only patients, clinicians, administrators, trainees, and students, but also researchers, academicians, and advocates. The articles below provide a glimpse into the array of topics that have been covered over the years. During this span, we have published over 1000 articles, within 134 issues. Selecting from so many scholarly works by experts in the field that have been published in our journal was not easy. Nonetheless, this selection highlights the importance of sharing international knowledge, collaboration between disciplines, and professional advocacy for excellence in healthcare. We’re proud the journal has served to illuminate and advance the topic of sexuality and disability from an overlooked, marginalized area years ago to its increased prominence in the scientific literature and clinical practice.
The interesting and thought-provoking papers below (listed in chronological order of publication) are available free until October 9, 2017 for your enjoyed reading.
