Handicapped, their Desire of love
Documentary by Samantha Campredon and François Chayé on France 5 at 8:35pm.
People who are dependent or handicapped are helped in all the basic everyday chores. Waking up, getting washed, dressing, mobility, and going to bed. But one essential and constitutive aspect of human life seems to have been forgotten, sexuality. In France there are currently few or no provisions to take these needs into account, whereas in countries such as Germany, Switzerland and Holland they have existed for many years. In a series of hard-hitting, moving and surprisingly frank interviews, we learn of the needs and desires of handicapped people across France. Also featured are interviews with other Europeans, to show that sexual help not only exists, but that it also can be made to work.
