Questions from the Twittersphere RSI & Sex Toys
Has anyone yet developed sex toys for people with RSI? I keep wondering if that market is being tapped at all…
To my knowledge no one has made toys specifically for people dealing with repetitive stress injuries, though many people might find that valuable. Holding a vibrator can be challenging for someone with RSI, and the motion involved in using a dildo can be painful.
Lying on your vibe, keeping it stationary with a pillow, is an option for people who can’t hold on for long. A new vibrator called The Cone might be ideal for folks who want something that will stay stationary in this way. And if the irritant involves grasping a narrow vibrator, as many battery vibes are, you can embed the toy in a foam rubber ball and have something larger to grasp. Some vibrating rings are stretchy enough that they’ll fit over several fingers and rest in the palm of the hand, relieving you of the need to grasp, and some vibes, like the Fukuoku, fit on a fingertip. Of course, the vibration difference between a Hitachi lying on a pillow and a little fingertip vibe is pretty large, so choose according to your vibration preference as well as your mobility requirements.
Dildos might be easier to use when equipped with a handle, like the Feeldoe or the Share; or when long and curved enough to reach easily, like the Pure Wand or the Double Dipper. And there are dildos with suction cups attached, like the El Rey and El Grande, that can be used virtually hands-free. Taking a harness, especially a thigh harness, and wrapping it around an appropriately-sized pillow is another way to make your penetration toy stay put while you have your way with it. (I’ve seen a large teddy bear get involved in a scenario like this¦ now I’m going to get the Plushies all excited, though, maybe¦?)
