♀️ Part Two: FemTech + Sex Tech 💋
To continue with our FemTech series, we will explore Sexual Health & Wellness and SexTech products. Particularly in 2020 when social distancing was mandatory, advances in SexTech have accelerated towards incredible growth.
SexTech is technology and technology-driven ventures that are designed to enhance, innovate, and disrupt human sexual health and wellness experiences.
Although SexTech has endured much criticism over its history, the industry was estimated at USD$30 billion in 2017 and is projected to be a USD$123 billion industry by 2026. No matter the taboos that surround SexTech and Sexual Health and Wellness products, it is clear that the industry is here to stay.

The team at Handi are on a mission to carry out the W.H.O.’s mandate that sexual pleasure is a human right. For people with disabilities, there are many hand limitations that prevent individuals from engaging in sexual pleasure on their own, therefore, Handi is the first line of sex toys that are made for, and by those, with hand limitations.
Even better, a percentage of profits will be dedicated to funding disability-driven design and innovation. Although not strictly for women, we thought it was worth highlighting how technology can address intersectionality while improving the sexual health and wellness of its users.
