Can you even have sex?

"Just call me 'pretty'."

In this episode, Madi and Becky look at the world of dating, relationships and...sex. Madi sat down with Lexi, one of her best friends who also has SMA, and Lexi's boyfriend, Tyler, to talk about the way the world perceives their relationship.

Whether it's the world over-sexualizing and under-sexualizing them at the same time, asking their able-bodied companions to talk for them or the physical realties of sex-this is a conversation about disability that you've never heard before (but have probably wondered about).
