About Our Guest

In this week’s episode, my guest is Spencer Williams, a 27 year old man who has cerebral palsy but he doesn’t let that stop him. Spencer and I talk about his love life, how dating can be tough as someone with a disability; and his decision to use a sex surrogate service. In Spencer’s works “I might be disabled, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get horny!”

Spencer is a freelance writer, and  currently contributes to Vice Media, and he is also dabbling in the world of podcasting. Feel free to connect with Spencer over on his Twitter and Instagram @djspencermusic.
