Talk: Luke+Jack present: Accessible Toys

October 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free - £8
A purple sex toy, slim with one raised end with ridges and another raised end which is smooth, on a cream, patterned background with pink flowers sitting to the top left.

Scotland’s leading sex toy retailer, Luke+Jack, explores toys and kink paraphernalia designed to be accessible to D/deaf and Disabled consumers. Award- winning erotica author and inventor of the Ruby Glow ride on vibrator, Tabitha Rayne, will discuss the power of sensuality, pleasure, and sexual empowerment, and creation of easy to use sex toys to help enable this. Sex blogger and author of filth, feminism, and funny stuff, Girl on the Net, will focus on audio porn – turning sexy stories into audio recordings to make erotica more accessible. Luke+Jack founders, Drew Harvey Bigglestone and Ian Diamond, will also host an open discussion with Disabled Producer and Founder of Creative Talent Connections, Claire Maguire – as someone who is directly impacted by these decisions – on the (harsh and hopeful) realities of encouraging other sex shops, designers, and suppliers of sex toys to truly provide sexual pleasure for all.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
