The Benefits of Disabled Sex

Walking is hard, puberty is harder

In 2012, boy lost the use of his legs but that’s the least of his worries. His school crush doesn’t know his name, his mum won’t stop shouting and he still can’t afford a prostitute. 

Boy is ready to talk about it all. From walking to wanking, girls to god, nothing is off limits. This is the truth, his truth - apart from the bits that aren't.

Combining Theatre and Stand up, “The Benefits of Disabled Sex” is a semi autobiographical one man show exploring disability, youth, crotches and crutches.
