You might have read on our news page about Otto Baxter, he's a 21 year old with Down's Syndrome who is searching for love and looking to lose his virginity. Nothing unusual in that you might say, but he has the full support of his mother, who has helped him set up profiles on social networking sites and is reported to be willing to pay for a prostitute if necessary to help him in his quest.
