When it comes to being intimate when you have a disability, creativity and trial and error play a big part in the process.

Marie was injured in 1998. Now, nearly two decades after becoming a quadriplegic, she shares the best advice she got when it comes to intimacy after a spinal cord injury.

"You just explore all areas of your body. Don't make an assumption that because you can't feel it it might not be a sexual spot."

Some individuals with spinal cord injuries are surprised to learn that areas where they no longer have typical sensation can often become areas of sensuality. "You just need to be adventurous and try anything," advises Marie.

Trying new things, especially when it comes to intimacy, can be intimidating and sometimes scary. But if you're willing to give it a go, you might just be glad you did!
