The article focuses on the sexually active life of people with spinal-cord injury (SCI). Although some people choose not to be sexually active, others would like to be, but are not. Unfortunately, some have not been for years. In fact, many people would like to know how to get into a sexual relationship. Many see it as almost impossible. For people with SCI, meeting a new person, dating and surviving after a divorce pose special problems. There's no real secret in meeting a potential sexual partner after SCI. The whole dilemma about dating and being sexual after SCI boils down to one simple thing. Unfortunately people who use wheelchairs seldom flirt. As a result potential partners do not respond.
