Hannah Witton is a 28-year-old british videomaker and writer who has been talking about sex, the body and relationships for years. She covers contraception, communication, the history of condoms, masturbation, pornography and more.
Since she was operated on in 2018 because of an inflammatory flare-up of a disease called ulcerative colitis, she has a stoma, so her stool comes out in a bag on her belly and no longer through her rectum. In her playlist “Sex, Relationships & Disability“, she shares her experience around her sexuality with an stoma. She’s also interviewed people with various disabilities about their sexuality.
She also has a podcast “Doing it!” where she interviews LGBTQ+ people, sex workers, disabled people, etc.
This woman amazes me by her strength; after undergoing 2 major operations, after fighting to regain her mental and physical health, she is still as dashing as ever, and has tried to make the most of her experiences, however painful and disabling they may be. For example, raising awareness about disability and sexuality, without taboo and with honesty; I am extremely grateful to her. Another of her videos that I liked is “Learning to Love My New Body | Mini Doc”, behind the scenes of a photo shoot of her in her underwear, as a step to reconcile with her body and her sex appeal after her operations, with the stoma and her scars.
