Peer Connections: SCI and Intimacy Series

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

“Intimacy is being seen and known as the person you truly are.” Amy Bloom

SCI and Intimacy is a three part series that explores the role that sex has in our lives. We will examine and dispel some commonly held beliefs and discuss the importance of communicating with yourself and others regarding the topic of intimacy. We will also touch on areas such as self‐exploration, erogenous zone relocation, sex (with self and others) and orgasm.

Wallace Upper and Melanie Earle are our guides for this candid discussion. This inter-abled couple are using their knowledge, skills and experience to keep the conversation going with their peers in the SCI community and beyond. For more information about Wallace an Melanie visit
