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.

Elegance Charm Wand by Spectrum Boutique



Name: Elegance Charm Wand

Price:  $79.99

Material: Silicone

Power Source:
USB rechargeable

Basic Description: This curved wand is powerful! It has a dual motor for both the wand head and the G-spot end. It comes with 10 functions and is waterproof. you can also use it for prostate play.

Pros: The curved head is wonderful for getting in the right spots! also, you can switch between having the head vibrate, the g-spot end vibrate, or both! this could be helpful if you like to sit on your toy to keep it in place because you can have the whole thing vibrate. It is also very lightweight and easy to hold. The buttons are also very easy to press and don't need a lot of pressure. The head is smaller than most wands so it might be easier to wedge in the places you want it, also the head is very flexible as well.

Cons: The button controls are a bit confusing and take some time and experimenting to fully figure out. If you are using one end only and accidentally press the buttons it could make the end you are holding starts to vibrate, thus making it harder to hold on to, and if you not familiar enough with the button controls, it can be frustrating to try and get it back to the setting you need.

Accessibility Features:
I really like the shape of this toy and how flexible it is. Also, I like the fact it is a multi-purpose toy. So you don't have to buy 2 entirely different toys.

Ponderings: This toy is one of the most accessible toys I've reviewed, if you want a dual purpose vibrator I would definitely recommend this one!

Custom Hand Harness by Unicorn Collaborators



Name:
Custom Hand Harness 

Price: $75-100 (sliding scale)

Material:
Leather

Power Source: N/A

Basic Description: Storytime! As you might remember, I reviewed the Hand Harness Strapon. I liked it but it did not quite work for me personally. So I was video chatting with the owners and we decided to make a custom hand harness for me. We talked about what I wanted and what I needed out of a hand harness. I had to take measurements of my hand and send it to them so they made this awesome custom harness just for me! It is made of leather with 3 velcro straps to secure it to my hand and also hold the O ring.

Pros: it is made for me so it fits not only my hand but my abilities as well! for example, the other Hand harness needed your grip in order to keep it on your hand, I can not grip. So having a harness that just straps on to my hand is awesome! Even though the other harness was also made to hold toys, I could not support a toy with the other harness. Because of the way this is made, it much easier for my hand to support a toy.

Cons: It is not off the shelf so if you want something like this you will have to coordinate with Unicorn Collaborators to get your own custom hand harness, but they are wonderful to work with!

Accessibility Features:
everything! it is made especially for me and my abilities. 

Ponderings: I obviously would love everything off the shelf to work for me but sometimes that's just not the case, and you have to work with people to make your own!
