Sex Aids For People With Mobility Issues

Sex Aids For People With Mobility Issues – At what point does a ‘sex toy’ become a ‘sex aid’? A mystery for our ages, perhaps. In fact, we’d put sex toys and sex aids in exactly the same category – they’re all things which help us have better sex.

If you have mobility issues, there are plenty of products on the market that are either specifically designed for you or which, by happy coincidence, can be used to help you enhance your sex life.

Positioning is everything

There’s one sex toy company that focuses almost exclusively on positioning products: Liberator. They make beautiful sex aids designed to help you get into nearly every sex position. From small ‘ramps’ to larger ‘wedges’, these firm, shaped cushions are designed for support and comfort.

Check out the Liberator sex position guide to see what’s possible.

The down side of these products, of course, is price. Some Liberator wedges will set you back over £150, and sadly that’s not possible for all of us. If you want to get your karma sutra on but you have mobility issues and a tight budget, then you may want to take advice from the awesome Emily Rose Yates – a disability campaigner and sex advice expert. Emily advises you to think outside the box when it comes to positioning – using mobility aids you already have for deliciously sexy purposes…

Any equipment you currently own can often be kinkified. Support bars, wheelchairs, bed handles – your mobility aids, as well as being handy for helping you get into a particularly comfy/hot/kinky position, can also be used for more risqué purposes.

Sex aids for masturbation – Vulva & vagina owner

Wand toys, such as the Doxy Massager, can be great for people with mobility issues. Small toys like vibrating bullets are often difficult to manipulate, and if you struggle with dexterity then you could easily end up getting frustrated with the ‘pocket’ vibrators. Wand massagers, though, have the benefit of a large head and large buttons – so you don’t need the pinpoint accuracy.

The downside? Size and weight are, of course, an issue. However, there’s nothing to say that large toys need to be handheld – toys like the Doxy can be placed on a bed or chair rather than held while you’re using them.

However, if a bullet is something you are craving, we do recommend DiGiT, our wearable finger vibe which is built to feel like an extension to your finger tips.

There are also hands-free toys that come with remote controls if you struggle to reach the right places. PULSE DUO is a great toy for couples, especially if you have mobility issues that make it difficult to reach buttons while you’re using toys. The external vibrator on the PULSE DUO can be controlled via remote, so either you or your partner can take charge of the strength of vibrations while you’re having fun.

Sex aids for masturbation – Penis owners

If your mobility issues make it difficult for you to masturbate, check out our masturbation tips for men with mobility issues. Options include using toys like PULSE SOLO ESSENTIAL, which can be placed on the penis and turned on, meaning once it’s set to running there’s no hands required!

The toy itself has silicon ‘wings’ which grip around the penis – and this works whether you’re flaccid or erect – then the oscillating vibrator stimulates you to orgasm.

The key – as with the best sexual things – is experimentation. Testing out which positions work for you and, if you’re using a vibrating toy, which settings work to stimulate you best.

Final word

The world of sex aids and toys is vast and inclusive, offering numerous options to enhance your sexual experience. From positioning aids like those from Liberator to versatile wands and wearable vibes, there is a plethora of products designed to cater to various needs and preferences. It's all about finding what works best for you, whether that's repurposing existing mobility aids or investing in specialist toys.

Remember, the key to a satisfying and enjoyable sex life is experimentation and creativity. Embrace the tools available, listen to your body, and don't be afraid to explore new possibilities. Your journey to better sex should be as unique and fulfilling as you are.
