Disabled people and sexuality are rarely discussed in Japan. The manager of ‘Heart Life’ speaks about providing disabled people in Japan with opportunity to have sex.

Heart Life is a specialty store based in Tokyo. In addition to Tokyo, we are developing services in Fukuoka and Sendai, and also in Okayama in early February.

In addition to the disabled person, parents and caregivers often request services . Depending on the extent of the disability, we have decided which women can dispatch.

Sometimes the “(Disabled person) has found our location and made a phone call, but there was a case where his mother said” My son has no sexual desire, please do not contact me. “My son’s history I guessed it.

However, sometimes mothers let their son use the service. It also possible for a mother and a female staff to meet and make a situation on a date for a disabled son.

The Tokyo branch has only about 60 employees. It is occupied by carers, nurses and people who are interested in caring for disabled people. There is also a handy course to help ejaculate. A lot of women in their twenties are coming to be interviewed because they want to care for people with disabilities after watching women’s videos about sexually assisting disabled people on the Internet.

“Japan has problems with respect to the sex and disabled people, and we have to talk more openly about it ,”. “The majority of Japanese people who see the sexuality of disabled people as taboo do not change as it is … The walls will not collapse unless the mass media and someone who has the power raise the flags.In a country that looks a little more toward disabled people I want you to become “.

People with disabilities are never far away. According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s “Survey on Difficulties in Living”, the total number of persons with disabilities as of December 1, 2004 is 936.6 million (Persons with intellectual disabilities are handbook owners, It is equivalent to about 7.4% of the population, with notebook owners and affected people). Meanwhile, when asking whether the person in charge of disaster health and welfare department of the Ministry is taking statistics about the sexual aid troubles concerning parents with disabled children, “I have not done it in the past few years (problem) delicate There is no need from people with disabilities about the problem …. ”

Shingo Sakatsume, President of White Hands, who has a book of “Sex and Persons with Disabilities” said, “I think that various people have images that sexuality is completely free for all, but it is not so. ” Although employment support for persons with disabilities is being promoted, “(Disabled people) want to see love or marriage, dealing with sexual problems involves social independence of persons with disabilities”.
