Battle for Love and Intimate Relationships

Chronic illness or injury doesn’t have to destroy your intimate life. As a Sexuality Educator and Counselor living
with spinal cord injury, Dr. Tepper’s mission is to serve individuals who are struggling to understand sexual
response and expression post-injury or illness. Having a disability doesn’t make you asexual. Erotic thoughts,
desires, and fantasies are normal. And you can still gain satisfaction from those triggers. Despite what you may
have heard, it’s possible to tap into your sexual pleasure post- injury or illness. Join Dr. Mitchell Tepper and
other guests as they discuss the “Battle for Love and Intimate Relationships.”
