Netflix’s “Special” Has A Lot Left To Say About Disabled Lives and Gay Sex

May 19, 2021

“I want gay sex and “Special” to be synonymous,” O’Connell told HuffPost. “I want my show to be known for topping, bottoming, top anxiety, lube ― all those things. I want to take the mystery and shame out of gay sex by depicting it as I’ve experienced it: erotic, humiliating, empowering, funny and intense, all within the same thrust.”

“Hopefully, I’ve removed some stigma and made non-disabled viewers feel less skittish and uncomfortable around disability, too,” he added. “That’s what I hope to do: lube and disabled awareness.” 

Ryan O’Connell is the creator of the series “Special“, which is about a gay man with mild cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his identity as an accident victim, break up with his mom – or at least set some healthy boundaries – and finally go after the life he’s always wanted. You can binge season 1 & 2 on Netflix now!
