5ensation: For Everyone as They Are
Providing a multi-sensory sexual experience for people with disabilities.
Sexuality is vital for health, well-being, and overall life quality. Unfortunately, even though society is working towards accepting diverse lifestyles, people with disabilities are frequently viewed as nonsexual or asexual beings. People tend to believe that physical limitations lead to declines in sexual interest among disabled individuals. Social media and dating sites further discrimination against people with disabilities because they only celebrate able-bodied persons.
There are some devices that provide sexual assistance to people with disabilities, but they only provide one sensual experience through means of touching. Many people have lost feeling receptors in genital regions or other areas of their bodies due to certain injuries or conditions, so what devices exist for those that need stimulation in other ways? We need a device that provides more sensory feedback through sight, hearing, and smell.
The 5ensation is a machine that would use four sensory components in comparison to just one or two. Using a combination of virtual reality, spacial audio, and scent emitters the 5ensation provides a hands-free, immersive masturbatory experience for people with a wide range of disabilities. This project would have a significant social impact on the community because it would help normalize the idea that people with disabilities have desires just like everyone else!
