I've always traveled a different path and questioned the conventional rules of wisdom. This has lead me to naturally think of ways to find sensual and sexual fulfillment when you are faced with physical challenges.
Everyone's sex life is going to be tested one way or another in their lifetime. Many people may think that they "are safe" and will not need to know this info as it does not apply to them. The funny thing is that the moment you are dealt the card of aging, chronic illness, injury, or even the side effects of taking meds, your life will instantly change and test your resilience to enjoy life.
Then what? Are you going to give up and not have a decent sex life anymore too? I actually think that I have an "unfair advantage" over most people because my coping skills and outlook are refined from a lifetime of experience.
Recently, I was interviewed by SexIs magazine (here's part I and part II of my interview) about my important message for people living with disabilities - I gave several product recommendations and introduced my own original product: The Personal Activity Lounge.
The wonderful Betty Dodson even gave a comment:
“I get critical of my body and how I look and here is a woman with a size disability who puts me to shame. Her upbeat attitude is an inspiration to the so-called able-bodied American woman who constantly criticizes her body.” That said, Dodson admits that getting older does have its realities: aches, pains, the gradual loss of mobility – things most people don’t think about until it happens to them."
I personally Love, Love, Love the Personal Activity Lounge aka the Fuck Table, and "use" it all the time. The PA Lounge allows me to easily be "on top" ie: like riding a horse, without excessive bending or weight on my knees and arms. Lots of creative positions to explore without being limited to a flatsurface of a mattress!
It started with a pretty, little Japanese-style table in my boyfriend’s home. I looked at it and started thinking, Dang, I wonder if we could fuck on that thing? We tried it and voila...I was able to finally to be "on top," the earth moved and rocked that night!
The coolest sex furniture that I created from my real experiences with the "little big man" in my life: Michael - The fuck table is now available on my website: www.high10yourlife.com
Custom ordered to your measurements. User friendly with non-disabled partners, tall or short, it don't matter. Very practical for solo use, exercise, and massage too!
They say there are no accidents. When I first met Betty and Carlin I was in such awe of their work in sexuality education and art...I knew that I wanted to be a part of it somehow. I am so thankful and humbled by their continued support and encouragement in having me as a blogger on their website, and for contributing thoughful and humorous commentary in this article. Betty, Carlin, I'm asking you to please get down on your knees as I reach up and give you both a BIG Thank You hug!
Betty muses: “Maybe when I’m in my 90s, I’ll get a purple one (electric scooter) and Marylou and I can have a race through at least one airport.”
Haha...I am down for that Betty, I'll race you any day. Be sure to charge up your batteries for your scooter...not for your vibrator dear!
