Resumen

CONOD, Loïse  y  SERVAIS, Laurent. Sexual life in subjects with intellectual disability. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2008, vol.50, suppl.2, pp. s230-s238. ISSN 0036-3634.

During the last decades, the expectancies towards sexual life of people with intellectual disability have been more and more recognized by researchers, clinicians, caregivers and parents. These expectancies, that largely depend on socio-cultural and personal factors, such as the level of disability, must be supported in order to help people with intellectual disability to reach the best quality of life as possible. Therefore, it is important to identify every patient’s and resident’s personal expectancies towards sexuality and which medical and educative support he/she needs according to his/her disability and co-morbidity. The aim of the present paper is to review the different research works conducted in this area.

Palabras llave : sexuality; contraception; sterilization; mental retardation; intellectual disability; sexual abuse; sexually transmitted infections; AIDS; hygiene management.
