A disabled man from Melbourne and his regular sex worker have gone public to break the stigma surrounding intimate relationships and people with disabilities.

Gavin Thorneycroft has cerebral palsy, but his condition hasn’t held him back from having sex once a week – in fact he probably gets it more than most of us!

The 32-year-old meets sex worker Olive Pearl, 30, for his weekly ‘appointments’ and now they are capturing their ‘moments’ on TikTok.

The cheeky videos have already pumped up over a million views on the social media platform.

Gavin, who uses a wheelchair, usually positions himself in a sex swing whilst Olive starts pleasuring him,

Pearl started her sex working career in Hamburg, Germany at the age of 18, now she is living in Australia where she continues her role fulfilling the sexual urges of others.

She told Mirror Online: "Gavin is just a regular guy - with the same sexual desires as other people.

"When I spend time with him, I don't see him as any different to any other client.

"We just have to get a little inventive with our positions to make sure it's comfortable for him - the sex swing is great for that - but that's it.

"I feel privileged that Gavin trusts me enough to sexually satisfy his needs. We are now good friends, and we always have fun together."

Gavin’s first appointment with Olive was in February 2021, since then the two have met on a weekly basis.

Thorneycroft, who does not work because of his disability, said:  "Having sex makes me feel normal, but it was hard to find a sex worker who gets it.

"Olive is so respectful and we have a great time together.

"Just because I'm disabled it doesn't mean I don't have the same wants and needs as able-bodied people.

"People with disabilities shouldn't feel ashamed of having sex and being sexual - it's totally normal."

The two have become friends since uploading their videos on TikTok.

Olive said: “We want to break the stigma around sex and disability. Instead of believing something you’ve heard, do your own research.

"Talk to people and form your own opinion. Don’t be afraid to admit to mistakes and changing your views. We have to evolve. It’s the only way we’re going to be able to break the stigma.”

Gavin said: "Olive is the best sex worker I’ve been with, and we have good chemistry. Ninety per cent of the time past experiences I've had sexually have been bad - they haven't been able to understand how cerebral palsy can impact sex.

"People with disabilities still want and need sex and relationships.”

Olive said: "It's important that people appreciate that just because someone has a disability it doesn't mean their need for a sexual relationship isn't there - they just may need to do things slightly differently.

"All it takes is some time to listen and a little creativity in the bedroom to make magic happen and it's enjoyable for everyone.

"It gives me great satisfaction - making sure Gavin is fulfilled."

More than 70 per cent of UK sex workers have previously worked in healthcare, education or the voluntary sector.
