Sex and sexuality after brain injury

Sex and sexuality after brain injury

£3.50

Brain injury can cause a range of physical, cognitive, emotional and behavioural issues that can affect various aspects of a brain injury survivor’s sex life. Their interest in sex may be altered or they may no longer be able to engage in sexual activities the way they did prior to their injury. Sexual problems can affect not only the brain injury survivor, but their sexual partner as well. This, in turn, can cause further issues such as depression or frustration.

Sex is a topic that people often feel embarrassed to talk about, as it is a very personal and sensitive aspect of our lives. However, sexual activity is both important and completely natural. It is therefore important that brain injury survivors and their sexual partners feel able to discuss and seek support with sexual issues.

This booklet has been written for brain injury survivors who have issues with sex after brain injury, and their sexual partners. It describes how sex can be affected following brain injury, offers tips for managing sexual issues and gives information on where to seek professional support from.
