A sex worker and her disabled client have spoken out about their sexual encounters in an effort to help ‘normalise’ people with disabilities having an active sex life.
Olive Pearl, 30, and her client, Gavin Thorneycroft, 32 – who has cerebral palsy – decided to speak out in order to try and break the stigma surrounding disabled people having sex and encourage others to be more open-minded and understanding.
The pair said that Gavin – who is wheelchair-bound – is often positioned in a sex swing.
Olive, who is originally from Germany but now lives in Australia, said: "Gavin is just a regular guy – with the same sexual desires as other people. When I spend time with him, I don't see him as any different to any other client.
"We just have to get a little inventive with our positions to make sure it's comfortable for him – the sex swing is great for that – but that's it.
"I feel privileged that Gavin trusts me enough to sexually satisfy his needs. We are now good friends, and we always have fun together."
Gavin, who is unable to work due to his disability, said: "Having sex makes me feel normal, but it was hard to find a sex worker who gets it. Olive is so respectful and we have a great time together.

"Just because I'm disabled it doesn't mean I don't have the same wants and needs as able-bodied people. People with disabilities shouldn't feel ashamed of having sex and being sexual – it's totally normal."
Gavin first reached out to Olive, who previously worked in education, for a session seven months ago and he has been a regular client ever since – seeing her for a romp usually once a week.
The duo has built a friendship after making TikTok videos in an effort to "break the stigma" surrounding sex and disabilities.
Olive said: "We want to break the stigma around sex and disability. Instead of believing something you’ve heard, do your own research.
"Talk to people and form your own opinion. Don’t be afraid to admit to mistakes and change your views. We have to evolve. It’s the only way we’re going to be able to break the stigma."
Gavin said: "Olive is the best sex worker I’ve been with, and we have good chemistry.
"90% of the time past experiences I've had sexually have been bad – they haven't been able to understand how cerebral palsy can impact sex.
"People with disabilities still want and need sex and relationships."
Olive said: "It's important that people appreciate that just because someone has a disability it doesn't mean their need for a sexual relationship isn't there – they just may need to do things slightly differently.
"All it takes is some time to listen and a little creativity in the bedroom to make magic happen and it's enjoyable for everyone. It gives me great satisfaction – making sure Gavin is fulfilled."
Their videos are very popular on the social media platform – with one being viewed nearly 1 million times.
