Help me with a Paper: Survey on Disability & Prostitution

*EDIT: SURVEY IS CLOSED* Thank you if you have already responded.

For my human sexuality course this semester we have to write a paper on a contriversial topic having to do with sex. For my paper I'm choosing to focus on the legalization of prostitution for men with disabilities. For my personal view on the topic view my post from July. What's cool is that we need six sources for our paper, but they do not have to be "academic". I can use blog posts and newspaper articles! I've decided to poll my readership on the topic as one of my sources. I was just over at Micro Preemie Twins and noticed that Billie posted a poll using Poll Daddy. Cool! Great timing! Unfortunately, as I created a survey as opposed to a poll, I cannot figure out how to embed it into this post. Can anyone help? They say that you can put in code to make the survey appear as a javascript popup. HELP! In the mean time, here is the direct link to the poll:

Here are the "rules" for a lack of a better word:

  1. Your responses will be kept strictly confidential. I do not ask for identifying information ANYWHERE and you are identified only by a number, such as 1819175.
  2. For the first 7 questions I will only be using precentages in my paper, and I may use one or two of the responses to other 3 questions. Or maybe not. I'll see.
  3. I will be posting the precentages on another post here on Disaboom for curiosity's sake, but again, NO IDENTIFYING INFORMATION WILL BE USED. See #1. I don't have any.
  4. The paper is due on December 1. The survey will not take answers after December 1. But please be kind and answer the survey in enough time to include the results in my paper. Sorry I posted so late!
  5. I really prefer that you answer the survey via Poll Daddy. It just makes things easier on me. BUT I'm not sure if Poll Daddy works with screen readers or not. If you are visually impaired, please PM me here on Disaboom. Here are the questions for you:

  1. Do you have a disability?
    • Yes
    • No
  2. Are you for or against the legalization of prostitution (for everyone)?
    • For
    • Against
    • Undecided
  3. Have you/would you ever pay for a prostitute?
    • Yes
    • No
    • Maybe
  4. Do you have a moral objection to prostitution?
    • Yes
    • No
    • Who am I to say
  5. If you could get government subsidized prostitution (reduced cost) would you partake in those services?
    • Yes
    • No
    • Maybe
  6. If the government would cover all costs of prostitution would you partake in those services?
    • Yes
    • No
    • Maybe
  7. It has been proprosed that the government of the Netherlands pay for prostitution for men with disabilities. I feel this is sexist. Do you?
    • Yes
    • No
    • Not Sure
  8. Do you think that men or women with disabilities feel more sexually inadequate?
    • Men
    • Women
    • Both
  9. Why do you think that some disabled people feel that resorting to prostitution is their only option?
  10. What could be done to change these views?
  11. Is there anything else I forgot to address? Comment here.
Thanks so much for helping me out!
Here are my other sources if you are curious:
The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability (GREAT book! HIGHLY reccomend it!)
What I really want is to get blog posts on the topic. Do you know of any other crips that have addressed the issue on their blogs? Please post the URL in the comments section. Thanks!
