This research proposal aims to contribute to the field of Gender Studies to investigate the construction of corporalities and eroticisms the experience of "physical disability". Looking foster debate on sexual politics in the brazilian context, we intend to analyze a plural context that intersects ethnographic different axes: body and erotic experience in subjects with "physical disability"; appropriation and reinterpretation of practices and clinical and therapeutic knowledge, and practices activists who work from NGOs and class entities in the search for "sexual rights".
