Warriors on Wheels (WOW) Support Group

February 16th: Dating and sex after a spinal cord injury @7pm CST

The third Tuesday of every month we meet to discuss and educate each other on relevant topics that can enhance our lives to become more independent and free. We are starting out this new year with dating while in a wheelchair while dealing with a SCI. We start  at 7pm CST we will be discussing dating and sex while dealing with a disability. Please join us as we discuss healthy dating practices and educate each other about what to expect when dating in a wheelchair. Please invite your partners to join in the conversations. 

To get a snapshot of what we will be discussing – this is the outline of the conversation we want everyone to join in. 

  • Self expression and acceptance 
  • Transgression toward significant others because of injury – self awareness
  • Safe sex and dating practices
  • Being aware of Devo’s and their curiousity
  • Speaking with your doctors about reproductive and sexual health
