Everything starts one day with that: what could be more natural than to love, to make love, to have pleasure and children… and so goes life, simple and quiet! Why is it that in our enlightened societies, the sexuality and affectivity of disabled people are still taboo? Our civilizations are multiplying their prowess in the face of the injustice of illness, accident and aging, endorsing medical care, education, work and leisure… Are they still not able to assume a subject as fundamental as life and pleasure? This book tackles without pretence and with dignity, sensitive questions for a constructive reflection.

Valérie Delattre is an archaeo-anthropologist at INRAP (National Institute of Preventive Archaeological Research). She is a specialist in funerary and cultural practices from Protohistory to the Middle Ages; she is also very involved in the field of disability within the associative framework.

 Ryadh Sallem is a high-level Paralympic athlete, initiator of humanitarian and associative projects aimed at fighting against all forms of discrimination. Director General of CAPSAAA, organizer of the Defistival and of societal and cultural symposiums, he is also the initiator of Educapcity, a major urban rally dedicated to 8-14-years old. He is also a consultant for companies and the media, a member of CROSIF and APELS, director of VIVRE FM and the Gécina foundation and associate manager of “Séquences Clés Production”… all to promote fraternity and living together in peace.
