Enby by Betty's Toy Box



Name: Enby

Price: $74.99

Material: Silicone

Power Source: USB Rechargeable

Basic Description: This unique toy is designed for all types of bodies and genders. 99% of sex toys are marketed to either people with vulvas/vaginas or people with penises. The Enby is inclusive to all. It has 3 speeds and 5 patterns. While not waterproof, the Enby is splash-proof meaning you can get it slightly wet but do not submerge it underwater or take it into the bath with you. It has a tip where the vibration is centered, but the whole thing vibrates. It is flexible in the tip and wings. It is harness compatible as well.

Pros:  Because it is made for different kinds of bodies you can be creative with how you use it! you can lie on it or sit on it. You can put it in your underwear or harness or place your penis on it. You can fold the wings and use it to stroke. It only has one button which is easy to press and turn on. Going through the patterns and speeds is also easy.

Cons: If you have a penis and would like to wrap the Enby around your penis, you would need a good grip and hand coordination in order to do so. Even if you have good hand coordination it still might be difficult to do this as the wings offer some resistances despite its flexibility.  I would like the vibrations to be stronger than they are, but I prefer strong vibrations so it's up to you depending on your preference.

Accessibility Features: Because it is made for a variety of uses, that in itself makes it accessible. It can be used creatively, which is awesome for people with disabilities who often have to find creative solutions to access sex and masturbation.

Ponderings: I am so happy this exists! As I said I  would like a few tweaks to the design and vibrations, but overall this is a great start for a multi-purpose inclusive toy.

Pussy Pump by Adam and Eve



Name: Pussy Pump 

Price: $124.58

Material: Silicone/ABS

Power Source: USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This pump draws blood to the vulva. it has 7 vibrating functions and 3 pumping speeds. It comes with an air release button for safe removal. It has a soft ergonomic grip handle.

Pros: It is lightweight and easy to hold! Also when you get a good suction it stays on so it becomes more hands-free at that point. The vibrating feature is unique for a pump such as this and that lessens the amount of work you have to do. When it is time to release the suction, it is as easy as pressing a button to release the toy.

Cons: If you have a lot of movements it might fall off more than you would like. Also, the handle is a bit short, so if you need a longer handle to reach this might not work for you. I was, however, a bit surprised by the price of this toy, though it is a good quality, it is more expensive than I expected.

Accessibility Features: The fact that it becomes hands-free when the suction starts is a great accessibility feature! Also even though the handle is a little short, it's still a great feature that you don't see on a lot of pumps! The air release button makes it easy and safe to use the suction feature.

Ponderings: If you like pumps this one has a few cool accessible features!

Adjustable Wand Holder by Passional Boutique



Name: Wand Essentials: Adjustable Wand Holder

Price: $69.99

Material: Metal and ABS

Power Source: N/A

Basic Description: This is a very interesting product! It is simply an adjustable gooseneck wand holder. It has a clamp that you can fasten to many different surfaces and on the other end is a circle clamp for your wand! It comes with two different sized circle clamps to make sure you can hold wands of all sizes!

Pros: It is very versatile! you can clamp it to your bed, a wheelchair, a chair, whatever fits your needs! also the gooseneck is very flexible but also sturdy so you know it will stay in place.

Cons: You do need a certain amount of hand coordination and strength to set up this wand holder. It needs to be tight enough to whatever surface you have it clamped to in order to stay up. The clamp itself can only clamp on to a surface that is an inch or two in width, so that kind of limits where you are able to put it depending on what you have available. This does require some experimenting in order to make sure it is balanced enough to stay where you want it, even when you put the toy in the holder, you would want the wand clamped on the heavier end as to not have the wand fall out or topple the whole thing over. 

Accessibility Features: This whole idea screams accessibility!

Ponderings: I would have liked to see the packaging even mention people with disabilities because this product is definitely for them. Also, just a funny side note: I definitely had flashbacks of mounting assistive technology to my power chair when I was putting together this wand holder because it looks so similar to what I used on my power chair.

Domi Programmable Wand + Attachment by Lovense



Name: Domi Programmable Wand + Attachment

Price: Wand: $199 + Attachment: $20

Material: Silicone

Power Source: USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This small wand has so many features! First, it is very powerful, it comes with 3 pre-programmed vibration levels and 10 pattern options, with additional unlimited custom pattern settings. It is much quieter than most wands without sacrificing any power. Also, there is an app for either your phone or computer to connect with this wand and it lets you fully customize the settings. The wand attachment I have is specifically for people with vulvas, it has a g-spot extension, textures all around the side, and flaps on the other side. 

Pros: First, the handle lets you get a good grip because it has well-placed indents that make it easier to hold on to. also the fact that it is not big like the Magic Wand helps make it more accessible for people who can't hold heavy toys. the app is so accessible, even if you don't have good hand coordination, you just have to slide your finger to get to the setting you want. also, the fact it has a PC and Mac application is huge for people who can not use their smartphone. this is the only remote-controlled toy I have reviewed that lets you control it from your computer. The attachment is easy to put on and stays on.

Cons: Honestly, the price is the only con about this, as it is fairly expensive, however you definitely get your money's worth!

Accessibility Features: Everything about this toy is accessible! this is one of the more accessible wands I have reviewed.  

Ponderings
: If you want a high-quality wand that is very accessible, this wand is a great option!

Mermaid G-Spot Vibrator by Paloqueth



Name: Mermaid G-Spot Vibrator

Price: $21.69

Material: Silicone

Power Source: USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This is a smooth curved G-Spot Vibrator. It comes with 9 vibration settings and is waterproof.

Pros: It is long so you can wedge it easily and also get a good grip on the toy. It has only one button which is easy to click. you just have to hold it down for a few seconds to turn it on. Also, the curve of the toy could be helpful for positioning. This toy is very lightweight and isn't as big in width as traditional vibrators.

Cons: It is not flexible so if you need a toy that molds to you this toy might be too rigid.

Accessibility Features: The handle has a really nice grip at the base making it easier to hold on to.

Ponderings: If you want an inexpensive G-Spot Vibrator, use this toy.

Pulse III Solo by Hotoctopuss




This is another guest review by Andrew Gurza. He is a sex and disability consultant and also has Cerebral Palsy. 

Name: Pulse III Solo


Price: $119


Material: Silicone


Power Source: USB rechargeable


Basic Description: This is an oscillating vibration device that can be wrapped around a penis. 


Pros: The toy is light weight and easy to use if you have dexterity, and full use of your hands. I

found some of the vibrations settings pleasurable on my penis for a short time.


Cons: Too hard to hold for someone with complex spasticity (at least for me). I found the

vibrations to often times be too intense, and it was difficult to turn off or on when in a lay down

position.


Accessibility Features: Because of my limited dexterity, I found that the toy was really of no

use to me by myself. When I tried the toy with a partner, they helped it become slightly more

pleasurable, but not by much.


Ponderings
: I think the toy needs to be a different shape (at least for me). Similar to that of a

flesh jack; but the current shape simply doesn’t work for me as I don’t have a lot of fine motor

skills.

Handheld Recharable Massager by Paloqueth



Name: Handheld Rechargeable Massager 

Price: $31.69

Material: Silicone

Power Source
: USB rechargeable

Basic Description
: This rechargeable wand has 5 patterns with 3 intensity speeds. It has a flexible head that has diamond-like-texture on top.

Pros
: The price is very affordable for a rechargeable wand. Also, the head is flexible so you can easily position it where you need it.

Cons: This wand is heavy and not balanced well. The head is big while the handle is much more narrow and small. So when you lift it the head is on the heavier side and you need a lot of hand dexterity and arm strength to hold it. The buttons are kind of difficult to press, they need a good amount of pressure to use.

Accessibility Features:
The price. If you are not sure a wand would work for you personally, but you want to try it, this could be a good option for you.

Ponderings: If you have good arm strength and don't mind the narrow handle, this toy could work for you.
