I’m certainly not telling you anything you haven’t heard before when I say that those of us who are disabled are often considered less-than-sexy by society. Well, quite frankly, society doesn’t know any better. And after reading this article, I hope that you can show anyone lucky enough to get into your bed just what they’ve been missing out on. Some of us might not be as agile, pain and care free as our non-disabled peers when it comes to sex, but we do have some interesting aids and objects in our households that can support great, accessible bedroom antics. Introducing to you: my top hacks for some mind-blowing accessible bedroom antics. Enjoy!
Tip 1: The Bed Rail
Many of us have grab rails near, or connected to, our beds to enable us to transfer in and out with ease. Admittedly, plenty of them are not all that attractive to look at, but have you considered tying rope, ribbon or handcuffs to them to make things that little bit more exciting in the bedroom? It’s such a great way to make what is otherwise quite a medical and clinical aid into something you’ll appreciate, and maybe even have a little grin at every time you see it!
Tip 2: The Hoist
Hoists are somewhat of a necessity to many of us. Yes, they get us from A to B, but what if they could be a part of a brilliant and varied sex life too? If your partner is able to get into a few flexible positions, or if you just fancy a different position for some solo fun, try using your hoist as a bit of a sex swing next time you’re in the mood. Who knows, it might just become a staple in your sexy repertoire.
Tip 3: The Wheelchair
This last one might sound like an obvious one, but the wheelchair users amongst us sit in a very versatile bit of kit every day. Yes, they grant an amazing amount of independence and are great for getting around, but they can also provide a seat for some saucy sexual experiences, too. Next time you fancy getting it on, try using your wheelchair in a different way. You might want to use it as a base for tying you or your partner to, as an aid for seated oral sex, or even stay seated in it whilst you use a sex toy (have a look at last week’s post for some amazing inclusive sex toy options!)
Switching things up in the bedroom and incorporating aids and devices we wouldn’t usually see as sexy is a great way to spice up your sex life and have a whole new appreciation for the things we use every day. Here’s hoping you have plenty of fun doing so and, as always, we’d love to hear if you have any accessible bedroom antic hacks of your own!
