Sex Life Still Alive for Physically Challenged
Date:1/30/2008

GLENCOE, Minn., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Sexuality does not end when a person experiences the effects of a spinal cord injury. Issues of meeting potential partners, building self confidences and enhancing sexual function are an essential part of adjusting to life after an injury. Many physical and emotional changes take place during the rehabilitation process and the matter of being able to perform sexually usually becomes an issue of importance. The truth is that as time passes, those with spinal cord injury find a greater appreciation for sexuality and many will move on to find greater emotional closeness with their partner.

Often times those with spinal cord injuries focus on simple pleasures to please one another, by caressing their partners erogenous zone, holding hands, hugging and kissing. Many couples still enjoy sexual intercourse. Yet, this act can be a challenge, especially in certain positions. Most couples will tell you that they are always interested in ways to add more fun and variety to their love life and there are items available to enhance sexual performance but few deal with the issues of boosting sexual motion. One such product that does address enhanced sexual movement is the IntimateRider(TM) from HealthPostures.

IntimateRider can make sexual activity easy and comfortable again. It offers a method of support where balance, strength and coordination may be poor, while also assisting by means of a natural gliding motion to enhance sexual relations. IntimateRider also offers a number of options with positioning in order to deal with loss of lower body muscle control. Couples now can focus on being gentle, caring and romantic again as they move forward in their relationship.

Matthew, C6-7 quadriplegic says, "Life after my injury has been a challenge but I am fortunate enough to have found a wonderful relationship with an understanding and caring woman who is also my best friend. We are open in our communication about sex and when we heard about the IntimateRider it did not take us long to figure out this is something that would change our sex life for the better. We are able to please each other now in ways that were just not physically possible before."

A number of other physical conditions can get in the way of sexual performance due to limited movement or fear of pain from uncomfortable positioning. Multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke, arthritis and chronic back pain are among the most common conditions that may hinder a more enjoyable sex life. Research also finds that senior citizens still enjoy the act of love making but find that time has taken away the sexual Olympics of their youth. People with these conditions have a strong need to find something to accommodate sexual positioning and also provide natural movement that may be difficult to achieve.

Everything from the softness of the fabric to the fluid gliding motion of the IntimateRider has been given a great deal of consideration to assure the most comfortable and enjoyable sexual experience possible. Adjustable legs, back support height, optional transfer set and selection of colorful slip-covers provide a means to a rewarding sex life and improved relationship.

So rejoice! The sex lives of the physically challenged are still alive and well and in fact have just gotten better. Each individual has their own way of finding what works best for them in their personal relationship. Advancements with products like the IntimateRider enhance an already gratifying love life and will give couples a way to enjoy the best sex possible.
