Sexual expression is a motivating force that pervades all aspects of being human. Occupational therapists work at intimate levels with their clients. However, it is not clear if the profession regards sexuality and sexual function as much at the heart of its purpose as personal care, work and leisure. This article provides an historical perspective on the changing attitudes towards sex and towards the sexuality of the client. This is related to occupational therapy's professional values which suggest that occupational therapists could have a positive role in sexual habilitation and rehabilitation.
