All over the world, there are many carers and volunteers helping the disabled. But in Taiwan, there’s a unique group of good samaritans addressing a particular problem of those paralyzed in certain parts of their bodies. A charity called Hand Angels made it its mission to help disabled people masturbate and fulfil their sexual fantasies – with their consent, of course.

The group doesn’t see its free sexual services as anything perverted. All the volunteers want is to address a valid need of some disabled people, which is to relieve themselves of their sexual frustrations. Volunteers for Hand Angels don’t seek any compensation for services they provide to their disabled clients.
The organization was founded by a paraplegic man named Vincent.
The founder lost use of his legs to polio when he was just a young child. His experience made him wonder about the different challenges faced by the disabled. He also thought about those who are unable to masturbate and address their sexual needs. In an interview with BBC, he said:
“Whenever I see disabled people like me, I feel for them. I see myself in them.
“It’s a complete process – from touching the person to helping them reach orgasm.”
The whole process lasts 90 minutes.
But for each client, the volunteers can spend as long as six months preparing. They discuss the client and find the best approach to provide their services.

Some critics say that Hand Angels’ services are a type of prostitution, but the group maintains what they are doing are legal in Taiwan. A female volunteer name Anan said to BBC:
“If they think I’m a sex worker, I’m fine with that.
Other foundations, most of the time, they are founded by religious groups or parents groups, and they would think how to help them get a job or live by their own. But they don’t think of their sex right, and that’s what we do.”
