The article focuses on women's level of sexuality with a spinal cord injury (SCI) survivor. It is stated that a woman's sexual appetite differs from one person to another. In teaching a man about a woman's level of sexuality, it is important to be gentle, supportive and mindful, since a male ego is a fragile thing. A woman should take equal responsibility for sexual relationship and both should ensure that intimate relationship is working.
