Sex Toys for those with disabilities
Sexual health and wellness should not be limited to any specific group of individuals.
For many, physical disability often impairs a person’s ability to engage in a regular sex life. It also brings feelings of anxiety, lack of confidence, and concern with regards to sexual performance and the ability to communicate your wants and needs effectively. It is important to recognise that these feelings are all completely normal.
Being born with or acquiring a disability, requires a lot of adapting and re-education around activities that were once deemed easy or simple. According to the World Health Organisation, more than 56 million people experience some kind of disability, and it is here that there is a blindspot regarding sex education, sexual health, and intimacy.
For many, it has been through the introduction of sex toys into their self care or relationships, that intimacy and sexual exploration has been made possible.
Sex toys, with the help of brands like Hot Octopuss, have evolved considerably over time in recognising the need for sexual aids and sex toys. Specifically designed for people with physical disabilities or serious health conditions, sex and disability are no longer a myth or an attempt at the near impossible.
Desir has carefully curated a category of products that allow persons with disabilities to opt for a selection of sex toys that promise sexual exploration and the option of a fulfillling sex life. Physical impairment or physical disabilities should not restrict your ability to be mentally and physically stimulated.
Whilst penetrative sex is not always possible, Desir’s products for people with disabilities include male masturbators, hands free strap on harnesses, penis rings to assist with erectile dysfunction, and ergonomically designed rabbit vibrators and bullet vibrators.
Bullet vibrators are ideal for precise clitoral or g-spot massage, and even for nipple and penis play and are a great start for beginners looking to add adult toys into their sex life. For products that assist with sex positions, look for adaptive equipment like sex swings or even harnesses that offer added support and comfort to the hips and back.
For those that are not quite ready to introduce a sex toy to the bedroom, start by exploring with a good water-based or silicone-based lubricant that could assist with masturbation or even oral sex. Massage candles or massage glides are also the perfect way to offer your partner intimate sensory play.
Bearing an intellectual or physical disability does not mean the end to a fulfilling sex life and with so many ways in which to continue enjoying sex, you are now able to incorporate your imagination, sex toys, bondage, and restraints into your sex life and health care.
You may have to approach sexual activity differently, but with Desir’s access to carefully curated products and a panel of medical experts to assist, you have the ability to make your own informed choices regarding your physical and emotional health.
