Episode 098 - That Time I had REALLY Good Sex as a Queer Cripple

8/10/2018
More
This episode is a really fun, simple episode where I tell you all about some great sex I had recently. I wanted to share because we so rarely hear disabled people telling great sex stories. So often our sexual encounters as disabled people are bogged down with ableism, and I wanted to share a moment that was just some really good sex for this queer cripple. Enjoy!

7/27/2018
More
In this episode, I talk about some of the current sex toys on the market for disabled people.

7/13/2018
More
In this episode, I review 2018’s Best Picture Winner “The Shape of Water”. I talk a lot about the ableism in the film, and how the central character (played by a non-disabled actress… ugh) shouldn’t necessarily fall in love with a fish man. I share some of my many issues with the film, as well as a few things I could relate to in love that I saw in this. I also share some reviews from disabled people who highlight just how ableist this romance between a deaf woman and a fish man actually...

Episode 088 - Ableist Busting Sex Tech

6/1/2018
More
In this episode, I look at the way we talk about technology advancements with respect to disability. We love seeing wheelchairs that walk up stairs as ways to fix ableism, but other forms of technology like sex toys treat disabled people like sad, poor people who can’t ever get laid. I wanted to change that conversation and so by looking at sex dolls, virtual reality sex consoles and teledildonics, I discuss why these options could actually be great ways to incorporate disability into...
