What people are saying

Offers realistic hope for active-duty servicemembers and veterans who have returned home with physical and/or psychological health challenges that are creating difficulties in their intimate lives....While super-relevant to people with disabilities and their partners, the frank and open sharing is enlightening and informative to all audiences. The full-on injection of raw humanity — shared with a purpose to make lives more full and pleasurable — is an essential element of addressing disability and sexuality.

Steve Wright

Love After War Documentary Film – Candid and Expert Storytelling About Disability, Intimacy, Sexuality and Compassion

Love After War is a groundbreaking study of sex and sexuality in disabled veterans....Love After War is incredibly unique. Having seen many documentaries focused on sexology, I can confidently say it blows others out of the water.

Throughout the documentary, Tepper himself dispenses calm, encouraging advice on overcoming these challenges, directing his advice at both veterans and spouses as well as health care providers who may be reticent about raising such issues with their patients. The latter especially may find this documentary a positive, sensitive example of the kind of honest discussion of sexual issues needed.
