Satisfyer Curvy 2+ from Betty's Toy Box

Name: Satisfyer Curvy 2+

Price:
$39.95

Material: Silicone

Size: overall length: 5.3″ inches, height: 4", width: 1.8", weight: 5.07 oz 

Power Source: USB magnetic charger

Basic Description: This is an air pulse stimulator and vibrator! It surrounds your clitoris and gives you stimulation through air pressure and strong vibrations. It has two strong power motors and an unlimited number of pattern and vibration/air pulse control options thanks to the free app Satisfyer Connect (available for Android, iOS, and Apple Watch). The app connects to the toy via Bluetooth and gives you options for preset patterns, making your own patterns, sync up with music or Spotify, and so much more! You can also use the app for solo play or give the controls to another partner (it can even be used over video chat too). The toy itself is waterproof and comes with an ergonomic handle and 3 manual buttons. 

Pros: First, the app is so easy to use! It has many options that come with straightforward tutorials, and even without the tutorials navigating the app is very intuitive and works well. As I have repeated time and time again, apps always make sex toys more accessible because you can mount or place the phone in the most accessible location for you. It's also really cool that the app is available not only on Android and iOS but also on the apple watch, which could be even more accessible for some! The toy handle is very easy to hold and lightweight and has a nice ergonomic curve that will help position the toy. The magnetic charger can help some people who have a hard time coordinating plugging in a traditional charger. Also, the price is reallllly accessible, especially given the toy's quality! Most app-controlled toys that are a good quality cost more, but this one is very reasonably priced. It's also got very powerful motors with great vibration intensity!

Cons: If you prefer to use the toy without the app, the pattern options are obviously more limited, but I found it harder to use the air pulse controls as well; it just generally seems a lot easier to control this toy via the app. You do need to be able to hold the toy itself, as wedging a toy of this shape and function would not work well. 

Accessibility Features: The Satisfyer Connect App, the price, the ergonomic handle, and the magnetic charger all make this toy very accessible! 

Ponderings: If you are interested in a very affordable and good quality external air pulse vibrator, I definitely recommend this one!

Pom by Dame Products


Name: Pom

Price: $95

Material: Silicone

Size: 3.25” x 2.2” x 1.2”

Power Source: USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This cute and unique shaped vibrator has 5 pattern modes and 5 intensity levels. It is waterproof and lasts up to one hour on the highest setting. It is flexible with no internal body, and it has a ridge on the tip of the toy for pinpoint stimulation. The whole toy is ergonomic and shaped to fit in the palm of your hand. 

Pros: The shape of the toy makes it easy to hold! It also could be nestled in your underwear, and because of its very flexible body, it will contour to your shape! The controls are super simple and intutives to use. It offers both broad and pinpoint stimulation and powerfully intense setting options. I was pleasantly surprised about how strong the motor in this little toy is! 

Cons: If you prefer or need a toy with more room to grab or has a handle, you might not like this toy. It is ergonomic but only if you can still have the hand dexterity to keep it in your palm since it is small. Even though it is a good quality, the price might not be accessible to some (it is definitely worth what you pay for it, though!). Lastly, if you like internal stimulation, this toy is not designed for that. 

Accessibility Features: The ergonomic shape and design, the flexible body, and the easy to use buttons all make this toy very accessible! 

Ponderings:
If you are looking for an external stimulator that is ergonomic and flexible, this toy is an excellent option!

SilcTouch Toy Handle by SilcArts


Name: SilcTouch - Toy Handle (Toy Not Included) 

Price:
$100

Material: urethane plastic

Size: Weight - 150 g. / 5.3 oz.

Power Source: N/A

Basic Description: This is a curved toy handle with a Vac Lock to help secure your toy onto the handle. The handle is made for easier self-pleasure. On one end it has an ergonomic handle to make it easier to hold, and the other end is the Vac-lock for your toy. 

Pros: This tool is excellent for people who can not reach their genitals on their own. It provides an extension of your arm so you can reach more places without having to work as hard. It's considerably lightweight (similar to holding just the handle part of an umbrella). The Vac-lock makes sure that whatever compatible toy you are using will definitely stay on! 

Cons: Even though it is made for easy access, you do need to still be able to hold the handle itself in order to use this toy. However, you could use velcro or something else to attach it to your hand potentially if needed. Getting the Vac Lock toy on and off is also something that some may need assistance on since it does a good job of keeping it firmly on the handle. Of course, if you don't like penetrative toys, this might not be of much help to you.

Accessibility Features: The product itself is made to be an accessible tool 

Ponderings:
If you are looking for an accessible handle to help with self-pleasure, this is an excellent option!

Iroha Mini by Tenga


Name:
Iroha Mini

Price:
$25

Material: 
Elastomer,  ABS

Size: Width 2.05" inches, Height 2.40" inches, Diameter 1.34" inches

Power Source: 1 AAA battery (included)

Basic Description:
This cute little external vibrator has one vibration setting and can be used underwater! It is palm-sized and portable. It lasts for up to 5 hours of use! 

Pros:
The size is great for some people who can not hold big toys in their hands. It has a pointed tip for more direct stimulation but can also be used broadly as well. It is waterproof, so you can take it into the bath or shower for extra privacy. It does not look like a vibrator at all, so that's also great for added discretion! The single button on the side is very easy to press. Also, the price is very affordable. 

Cons: This is definitely not good for hands-free pleasure, as the size and shape would make it challenging to keep in place. The fact that it is battery powered could be a con for some, who find putting batteries in tricky or need more power in their toy. Although, it is still easy to open the battery casing.  Because it only has the one-speed setting, that could be a con if you like having multiple speeds and/or patterns to choose from. It is also only meant for external stimulation, so if you need a toy with internal stimulation options, look elsewhere.

Accessibility Features
: The size and discreet design of the toy, the one button, and price make this toy fairly accessible

Ponderings: If you are looking for a simple, affordable, and discreet palm-sized external vibrator, this is a good option!

Iroha Uki Dama by Tenga


Name: Iroha Uki Dama - Hoshi

Price: €90 ($108.65)

Material: Silicone, TPU, ABS

Size: Width: 2.25" inches Height: 2.71" inches, Diameter: 2.25" inches (2.5 oz)

Power Source: USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This unique toy double as a vibrator and a bath light! It can float in your bathtub, giving you a relaxing way to set the mood. The light settings come with 3 different lighting levels and 1 patterned light option. It also is a vibrator - it has 3 vibration intensities and 1 patterned vibration setting. It is waterproof as well and comes with its own stand.

Pros: It is lightweight and easy to get a grip on. It is also fairly powerful for such a small vibrator. The buttons are fairly easy to use. Also, this might be the main perk for some people - it does not look like a vibrator and can even be used in the bathtub as a light or a vibrator (or both) and guarantees more and privacy and discretion. You could even leave it out in your bathroom and people will just think it's bath light or something. The entire toy vibrates as well which can help give you a broad sense of pleasure and not be super particular about where you place it. 

Cons: If you are unable to hold an egg-shaped item you might have a hard time using this. The price is not exactly worth what you get, and I also could not find any for sale in North America. Since it has this odd egg shape, you will find it difficult to use without hands. It would also be tricky wedging it somewhere as well. 

Accessibility Features:
The discretion of the design and weight of the toy makes this somewhat accessible. 

Ponderings: If you need a vibrator that does not look like a vibrator and maybe even enjoy the bath light feature, this could be a good option for some.

Iroha Zen by Tenga


Name
: Iroha Zen

Price:
$35

Material: Silicone, ABS plastic

Size:  Width: 1.3" inches, Height: 5" inches, Diameter: 1.3" inches (2.5 oz)

Power Source: 2 AAA batteries (included)

Basic Description
: This little vibrator is soft to the touch and has a special marshmallow-like texture, which also has an anti-dust coating. It also has ribs to give you more textured sensations. It comes with 3 vibration intensities and 1 patterned vibration mode. This toy is also waterproof so you can enjoy it in the bath.

Pros: It is rather small and lightweight so you can easily hold it. The whole toy vibrates so you don't have to be extra precise with this toy. The button is very easy and a rather big button located at the base of the toy.  The soft texture could be good for people with skin sensitivities. This toy is also very affordable, especially for the quality. 

Cons: It is not very powerful, which is to be expected with battery-powered toys. Because of its small size; wedging it anywhere is not really an option, so you have to be able to maneuver the toy in some way.

Accessibility Features:
The size, weight, material, easy press button, and price all make this toy fairly accessible

Ponderings: If you are looking for an affordable external vibrator, this one might work for you

Iroha Termari KAZE by Tenga


Name: Iroha Temari KAZE

Price: $79.99

Material: Silicone, ABS, PC

Size: Diamter: 2.4" inches, Widith: 2.4" inches,  Height: 2.8" inches

Power Source: USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This cute little vibrator comes in its own casing. It has 4 Speeds and 2 Patterns. It is designed to reduce vibration transmission to your hands. It has a strong but quiet motor. This toy also comes with an anti-dust coating. This toy is also waterproof. 

Pros: I was pleasantly surprised that the motor is actually quite powerful! The toy is lightweight and small. The one-control button located on the base of the toy is simple and easy to use, but it is not easy to accidentally pressed. The ball is somewhat flexible in terms of moving it around. The fact that this toy is designed to reduce vibration transmission is great, so those who can use a handheld toy such as this may be able to enjoy it for longer without that weird tingly sensation in your hands. 

Cons:
It is small, so you can not wedge this toy anywhere. You need to be able to cup or grasp the base as this is not a traditional handle. Because of its size, you do need to be precise about where you put it, although the ball itself will provide a more broad type of stimulation. Also, if you need g-spot stimulation, this is not the toy for that.

Accessibility Features: The size, weight, the one press button, and the base prevent vibration transmission.

Ponderings: If you are looking for a small but powerful handheld vibrator, this is an excellent choice!
