About Our Guest

Through her platform Cripping Up Sex With Eva, Eva Sweeney gives classes about sex and disability, topics that are not talked about nearly enough in our society. As a queer teen with cerebral palsy, Eva could not find adequate information about integrating her sexuality with her disability–so she created the information herself. She now has over 15 years of experience giving workshops all over the country about sex and disability. Through Cripping Up Sex With Eva, she continues to do workshops both in-person and online and she has an online store with pre-recorded classes. Additionally, she has two blogs: Cripping Up Reviews, where she reviews sex toys through an accessible lens, and Crip Q’s where she answers anonymous questions about sex and disability.

As always we hope you enjoy this conversation but given the subject, there is some adult content, so make sure to pop your headphones on!

    I am wondering if this podcast has been transcribed for folks who might be hard of hearing or are Deaf?

      Hi Fran, thank you for reaching out. I did try transcribing my episodes in the beginning but it would take me a really long time that I couldn’t really commit do doing as I have a FT job. I’m hoping to soon generate some income from the podcast so that I can pay a transcription service to do this for me. Right now sadly it’s not in my budget. However, I do post my podcasts onto YouTube. If you head to the YouTube channel and find this video, you can turn on the subtitles. Some guests, including Eva, allowed me to post the video from our Zoom recording too so you even get to see Eva (and her cat Romeo) in the video. I’d highly recommend watching it that way. The link for the YouTube video is above but I’ll shoot you an email with the link too.
