Josée wants to discuss about ACSEXE+!

Our project manager, Josée, wrote her first blog post:

Last month, I was lucky enough to became project manager for ACSEXE. I spent the last month familiarizing myself with what has been done…a month to read, discuss, think … without succeeding in completely deciding on what to do so that ACSEXE shines more and is even more interesting for those interested by the project.

The project is important to me personally. I think of the teenage little Josée, who saw her friends having their first sexual experiences, and wondering if she would be able to have “normal” sex with her stiff legs and body. I think back to my early 20s, when I was on dating sites, with an invisible handicap in my pictures, tooking hours to think about when and how and why to tell about my difference before dating. I think of the Josée in her mid-twenties (and that’s not so long ago), who, after a sex life with the same partner for years, wondered how to communicate her differences and abilities with more ephemeral partners. And even more recently, the big Josée, who was wondering last week where to find, these partners open to a love story with a “different” person?

I feel like sharing all of this with you. But that’s my reality. And yours is different. You certainly have questions, solutions, things to say, ideas for the project …

ACSEXE, it’s not just me, it’s us.

You want to participate in the project and share your ideas, exchange, collaborate on this blog … I want to hear from you! Write me at jrochon@fqpn.qc.ca.
