Abstract:

The life of young people with disability are troubled with barriers and difficulties than the people graced with perfect physical health. Only a little is known about their sexual life and procreation. This paper, however intends to conduct a systematic survey and meta-analysis of the problems and challenges faced by the young people with disability in their sexual life and procreation. Familiarity with the works of the grand masters helped to come to the conclusion that this is solely on account of improper sexual education and guidance. As a result of improper sexual guidance, they may be more prone to contract sexually transmitted diseases. Besides sexual violence and adjustment difficulties with the partner is common among them. To compensate the challenges and the miseries faced by the people with disabilities a noticeable change has to be effected from the side of the society, life partner and the people of the domestic circle. The absence of proper information about the real difficulties faced by the people with disabilities, it is not possible to give them proper guidance to lead a satisfying family life. © 2017 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC
