Disability and Sexuality in Art: An Interview with InkDevil

"Wrap Your Arms Around Me"

“Wrap Your Arms Around Me”

Those of you who follow me here or on twitter know that one of the reasons I write is to try to tear down some stigmas and cultural stereotypes that people with disabilities are asexual, or that sex with someone who has a disability is wrong or disgusting. Society at large tends to infantilize people with disabilities, and I try to do my small part to attempt to change that.

I recently came across an artist who has a similar goal with her artwork. She goes by the name InkDevil and is a 42-year-old woman living in middle England. She works full time in the construction industry, but art is her passion. She’s taken it upon herself to try to change some of the stigmas of disability and sex through her art, which, though explicit, is far from pornography. Instead, her work shows the beauty of the sexual act with an individual with a disability.

She’s had several PWDs (and their partners) volunteer to model for her, and she’s always looking for new models. If you’re interested in volunteering, you can contact her via email at deviledink(at)outlook.com.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with her and ask her some questions about her art. The interview is below, along with some samples of her work.

**Warning: Some of the artwork included in the interview below is explicit.**
