Untold Desires (1994)

People with disabilities struggle to be recognised as sexual beings, free to explore their sexuality and lead sexually active lives. This film explores first hand stories of people with disabilities who speak candidly about their experiences in their search for sexually fulfilled lives.

Untold Desires offers appealing and positive images for people with disabilities as well as breaking down stereotypes that render the disabled person as non-sexual or perverse in the eyes of the non-disabled world.
