The Last Taboo tells the gripping and heart-warming story of six people with various physical disabilities and an able-bodied partner who was in a relationship with one of them.

The Last Taboo asks us to step outside of our comfort zones in order to reconsider our misconceptions regarding disability, identity, gender, attraction, beauty and sexuality.

 

Reviews:

“I was totally blown away! An absolutely outstanding achievement!” – Robbie Leppzer, Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker, Turning Tide Productions.

“The movie makes so delightfully clear, while there is nothing more “normal” (and therefore potentially boring!) than love and sex, everyone’s experience is so tremendously specific that, if you look at them with clear eyes, the stories can be endlessly rich.” – Andrew Bujalski, 2013 Sundance Film Festival Winner.

“This is an amazing documentary film that shares the truth about sexuality and disability.” - Rafe Eric Biggs, Ph.D, Psychologist, Writer, Filmmaker, Social Activist and Founder of Sexability.

"You really have changed my outlook on disability and this film has taught me even more. I'm really appreciative of this documentary because as an able-bodied person I have been curious for a long time about how people with disabilities have sex or experience sexuality, but it's something that is very taboo to talk about and it seems rude and even absurd to ask a person with disability these sorts of questions." - Camille Gerard.
