At AdamandEve.com, we’ve received many questions about how to assist those with physical disabilities in enjoying sex more. There’s a plethora of products that can be used to facilitate sex by making it easier and more pleasurable for those with physical limitations. Here are just a few that we carry.

Who does it help? Take pressure off of your partner’s back, while also giving their tired joints a break.
