Abstract (Swedish)
Denna studie undersöker möjligheterna för individer med intellektuella funktionsnedsättningar att ha ett sexuellt aktivt liv. Med hjälp av en observation, en gruppintervju och sju stycken kvalitativa intervjuer med personal och individer med intellektuella funktionsnedsättningar, har jag sökt svaret på denna fråga. Genom ett teoretiskt ramverk bestående av Queer-, Crip- och Goffmans dramaturgiska teori har jag analyserat mina informanters berättelser. Analysen visar att det finns många olika aspekter som begränsar dessa individers förmåga till att ha ett sexuellt aktivt liv, såsom boendeform och omgivningens normer.
Abstract
This study investigates the opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities to have a sexual active life. With the help of an observation, a group interview and seven qualitative interviews with staff and individuals with intellectual disabilities, I have sought the answer to this question. Through a theoretical framework consisting of Queer-, Crip- and Goffman's dramaturgical theory, I analyzed my informers' reports. The analysis shows that there are many different factors that restrict these individuals' ability to have a sexually active life, such as the design on the housing, and ambient standards.
