Bump’n Joystick Update

Hands free Sex Toys By

A year later than planned, orders of the hands-free Bump’n Joystick are now slated to ship this Spring.

The Bump’n Joystick is a huggable sex pillow and sex toy mount designed for people with disabilities. Its creators are brother-and-sister duo Andrew Gurza and Heather Morrison, co-founders of the sex and disability startup Bump’n.

Gurza, a Canadian man with Cerebral Palsy, spoke about his inability to masturbate in a 2017 documentary called “Picture This.” After stumbling upon the film and learning about her brother’s struggles, Morrison reached out to him to create a sex aid that could help people with limited dexterity to self-pleasure.

The Bump’n Joystick is the result of prototype testing with people with disabilities in collaboration with Judith Glover, Ph.D., of RMIT University in Melbourne.

The disability-driven sex toy design enables users to hug the Bump’n Joystick close to their body without relying on hand grip or fine motor skills. It is one meter long and made of soft, flexible material.

The top half of the Bump’n Joystick is made of memory foam. The lower half offers two options of sex toy holders made to accommodate the different styles of both penis strokers and vulva sex toys. . The two sections come apart in the middle in order to enable easier cleaning and storage.

Originally, sex and disability startup Bump’n was hopeful to start shipping orders of the Bump’n sex toy in September 2022. However, the new anticipated shipping date is Spring 2023.

Since pre-orders remain open at the time of writing, it is possible Bump’n hasn’t been able to fulfill buyers for its first batch of Bump’n sex toys.

The full price of the huggable sex toy holder will be $250. However, a deposit of $99 is only required for people who want to reserve a Bump’n Joystick.

Bump’n co-founder Andrew Gurza made the announcement in an Instagram post published on December 24, 2022. A transcript of the text is shared here as well as the link to the Bump’n Instagram post.
