This study focuses on the sexuality and affectivity of people with intellectual disabilities. On account of this, the view of the health operators working in the communities taking care of the ID patients has been evaluated. The typology of the communities involved in this study shows different organization aspects and an heterogeneity of the ID pathologies of the patients. The investigation tool used for the operators is the SMRAI questionnaire. Our results provided evidence that there is a lack of the specific affective/sexual education and of the capacity to face the personal behaviours that compares and contrasts the operators with own qualities and culture, considering bioethical point of view.
