Living with chronic pain and/or disability can prevent you from doing a lot of things, but it shouldn’t keep you from enjoying vibrator use. Some devices are specifically designed to be used by people with disabilities. It’s a little more difficult to find these specialized vibrators for women, but the search is well worth it.
Chronic Pain and Sex
Your body may still be physically capable of sex and sexual response, but other health issues can compromise your range of motion and your ability to enjoy sexual penetration. Arthritis, for example, can keep you from getting into standard sexual positions that you’re familiar with using. Chronic illnesses, such as interstitial cystitis, can make it difficult to enjoy sex because it causes pain (a condition known as dyspareunia).
And when you’re physically compromised in some way, sex toys are more fearsome than attractive. By and large, vibrators for women are designed to used by healthy, fully mobile women with an average range of motion. And if you’re not one, shopping for vibrators can be a rather depressing experience. If you have trouble getting into certain sexual positions, how are you supposed to contort yourself for vibrator use?
There is another option: vibrators for women who are disabled.
No one knows your body better than you. Be honest about your sexual needs and your physical limitations, and it will be easier to find the vibrators.
For instance, if you have a loss of sensation in the vaginal area you’ll need strong vibrators for women. The famous Hitachi Magic Wand has a powerful motor, and because it’s a wand vibrator it extends your natural range. This makes it easier for you to reach your pleasurable areas without bending and contorting into a bunch of weird positions.
Do you find that you’re too weak to hold a heavy vibrator for long periods at a time? Cancer treatments and illness can weaken muscles and sap your stamina, making it hard to manage a heavy vibrating device. Try something lightweight, like the Slender Sensations Vibrator. This is a good choice for women who have chronic pain issues. The Slender Sensations is made to be gentle on the vagina. It’s designed not to irritate or tear the vaginal walls.
Have trouble holding a device in the hand? Sit on the Sybian vibrator, or wear a pair of Fundawear (vibrating panties).
Disabled, but Sexy
People who struggle with disability and chronic pain are still sexual creatures. It’s not always easy to find vibrators for women that will work for you, but they are out there. Need more help? Look for forum groups and websites that are geared towards people with disabilities. Even if you’re disabled, you should still enjoy sex – and you can!
