Handicapped Porn Star Challenges Barriers

Posted by on June 28 at 10:25 AM

Encarna Berlin

“Encarna Conde does not fit the profile of your average silicone enhanced, pouting porn star. At 45, she is a late entry to that group of women who seek fame or fortune by performing sexual acrobatics and faking orgasms for the camera…. The reason for the fuss is that Encarna is a wheelchair user who has a musclecontrol disorder called ataxia. She is also president of the Association of Andalucian Ataxia Groups….Her decision to appear on screen with professional porn actors came after she wrote to Spain’s biggest porn producer to complain that disabled people never featured in his films.”

Well, the Guardian may be slightly snarky about it, but I think it’s great. I’ve had a number of handicapped clients over the years and the image of sexless person in the wheelchair was always troublesome to them. One man - in his forties, partially paralyzed - told me he had to make sure to hide all traces of sexual activity from his live-in helpers, because they would be shocked by the idea that he had a sex life!
So you just go, sexy Encarna.

I agree with you! When I was in law school, one of my classmates was a Vietnam Vet who had had a little accident with a grenade and had lost a leg. He invited me to join a group of disable skiers as an instructor, and I wound up teaching skiing to people with various amputations for three winters. (Also to people who were deaf or blind or had other disabilities.) They were most definitely not an asexual group - some of the stuff they got up to would be right at home in Hump2. :-)

Porn's cheap to make. Get a camera. Shoot it. Sell it. Stop whining about someone else's not wanting to produce it.

If I found a porn flick on Green Cine featuring, say, a retarded hermaphrodite, a female dwarf, and a blind-deaf-mute spanish farmer boy, of course I'd have to add it my queue.

Ever see "Murderball"? At one point, they're discussing sex, and one of the guys is explaining to a newbie how he can use his winsome waif "I don't know if it still works" routine to pick up hot women. Apparently, the lure of being the woman who was able to "restore" a man's sexuality is all but irresistable. :-D

Matisse, I really enjoy when you slam on dipshits who call you with stupid questions (so keep it up), but I enjoy it more when you talk about your clients in the respectful way that you do. I can't help but think that many of the ladies in your profession, being of similar sexiness, would talk dirt about the guys who need to hide their sexiness from their caretakers. You are absolutely the right person for your profession, and when your good looks diminish (as they eventually will for us all), I hope you make a killing writing about your experiences.

In the future, everyone will be a porn start for 15 minutes.

That's porn star. The 15 minutes part is right.

"porn start" - I thought you were saying we were all going to have to work a shift as fluffers.

Oh, look. A fetish video. OMG SO GROUNDBREAKING.

It is great, but c'mon.

In the future, everyone will be a porn start for 15 minutes.

I don't think HUMP2 is going to get *that* many submissions.

still waiting for details about your video mistress
