(The Local) The mother of a disabled 30-year-old man in Treviso, northern Italy, is appealing for brothels to be reopened in Italy so that her son can have an active and safe sex life.

The woman told Gazzettino that her son, who has been in a wheelchair since an accident, has the “same sexual desires as any young man” and that the forced abstinence causes him stress.

The woman has previously paid for her son to use a prostitute due to there being “no other alternative”.
