BECAUSE DISABILITY AND SEXUALITY CAN GO HAND IN HAND
A huge portion of the design process at Pastel Poisons is consideration to providing toys with designs that can be used by people with varying capacity, because us cripples fuck, too.
Incorporating accessible features and having the option for further customisation are always in mind from draft design to final product, because sexuality isn't just for the able-bodied. Because everyone's experience is different, we're always happy to see what we can do to accommodate for your needs and make expressing yourself accessible, no matter who you are.
All of the products listed in store can be modified with 'vet wrap' or a latex-based grip tape, designed for increasing the size of the handle and adding a comfortable grip surface. This is ideal for those with sensory issues, trouble holding things for long periods of time, or just for those who want a little added comfort in their swing.
Wrist straps are another way to ensure safety for both the user and the recipient during play sessions, and all Pastel Poisons paddles, pounders, petites and premiums come equipped with a hole for threading a wrist strap at the base. At this point, I'm crash testing a range of wrist straps for comfort and durability, and whatever passes my strict QC will make it to the store.
As the products are continuously being tweaked and improved, so to are our policies for accessibility. I will ALWAYS be willing to work with clients to make sure that we've done everything we can to ensure kink is for everyone. Right now my policies reflect the disability issues that I am directly affected by, and those that I have knowledge of. If you have a requirement that I haven't addressed, or have a suggestion on how I can improve these products further, please do not hesitate to send me an email.
