The aim of this paper is to highlight some of the complexities involved in undertaking sexuality work and attempting to address the differing cultural needs of service users. It is primarily based on the direct work experiences of the authors but is reinforced by the broader experiences of colleagues.The paper is not written with the intention of giving answers but rather to explore the responsibility of services, as well as the practical implications of carrying out sexuality work with service users from a range of cultural backgrounds within an equal opportunities framework.
