No need to move , my wife is a quadriplegic but does not need outside services [Wink]

Many of the quadriplegic and paraplegic people in our building have partners. In fact one of them is pregnant.

Actually a rather humane and moving story. One way or another we all want to be touched. Bravo Switzerland!

My wife just told me they were working on a program like this in the US years ago, basically sex surrogates.

That's fascinating. I have a hard time believing that such a program could be carried out in the US, at least outside of California. The religious right-wingers would be all over it, in their typically reactionary fashion. I can already hear the insults being hurled.

In fact, I believe such a program would probably violate the US's utterly preposterous prostitution laws. I think it's more likely we'll see decriminalized medical marijuana use before this.

And bravo to the men and women who are participating in this! This is truly "above and beyond the call of duty".
