We love this piece because we want to feature differently abled #realworldsex on MLNP.tv! We welcome submissions from folks who want to show us what awesome disabled #realworldsex looks like.
“I see disability as a mirror for society,” says photographer Olivier Fermariello. “Most of us belong to the 99 percent of people who do not fit in the standards of manipulated beauty.”
With his series, Je t’aime moi aussi, Fermariello opted to push the dialogue about physical beauty further, photographing what has (sadly) often been a taboo subject: the sex lives of people who have physical disabilities.
“Diversity is scary for people,” says Fermariello, “because it reflects our far from perfect appearance. When it gets to matters like sexuality and disability, we usually feel uncomfortable and we rather not want to talk about.”
