Andrew Gurza - Controls His Joy Stick - Ep 17

Open Deeply Podcast

Andrew Gurza, award winning Disability Awareness Consultant joins us for a second episode in which he tells us about his exciting, new sex toy company, Handi along with the company’s first ground-breaking sex toy, the Joystick, that will put pleasure within reach for tens of thousands of disabled people as soon as early 2022. Andrew also drives home the power of using humor to reach people who would otherwise be too intimidated to learn about disability. Using such terms as “bear in a chair” and “queer cripple”, Andrew says that he makes discussing disability less scary for both himself and others. And Andrew isn’t shy about discussing sex. He unpacks both his exciting and traumatizing emotional experiences related to accessing sex as a disabled person, describing why these experiences have led him to having a more tantric mindset regarding sex. Please join us for another episode of Open Deeply as we learn how to break down ableism, face our fears about disability, and laugh with Andrew as we do it.Andrew Gurza is an award winning Disability Awareness Consultant and the Chief Disability Officer and Co-founder of Handi, a sex toy company that puts pleasure within reach for disabled people. Andrew uses they/he pronouns and identifies proudly as disabled. Andrew is brimming over with full tilt loveability, humor, and naughtiness in the best possible way. So of course, he’s been featured or interviewed worldwide in popular media, such as the BBC, Huffington Post, and Out.com, several anthologies and many podcasts, such as Dan Savage’s “Savage Lovecast” discussing what is means to be, (quote), a queer cripple (unquote). He was the subject of an award winning National Film Board in the Canadadian Documentary “Picture This”. He is also the host of Disability After Dark: The Podcast Shining a Bright Light on Disability Stories which was nominated for a Canadian Podcast Award, a Queerty Award and was chosen as an Honoree at the 2020 Webby Awards. Andrew is also the creator of the viral hashtag #DisabledPeopleAreHot.How to find Andrew Gurza:http://www.andrewgurza.com/and on social media @andrewgurza_How to find Sunny Megatron:Website: http://sunnymegatron.comFacebook http://facebook.com/sunnymegatronTwitter http://twitter.com/sunnymegatronInstagram http://instagram.com/sunnymegatronTiktok https://www.tiktok.com/@sunnymegatronYouTube https://www.youtube.com/sunnymegatronAmerican Sex Podcast https://open.spotify.com/show/2HroMhWJnyZbMSsOBKwBnkHow to find Kate Loree:Website http://kateloree.comFacebook https://www.facebook.com/kateloreelmftTwitter http://twitter.com/kateloreelmftInstagram http://instagram.com/opendeeplywithkateloreeYouTube https://youtube.com/channel/UCSTFAqGYKW3sIUa0tKivbqQOpen Deeply podcast is not therapy or a replacement for therapy.

Andrew Gurza: Disabled People are Hot - Ep 16

Open Deeply Podcast

Andrew Gurza, an award-winning Disability Awareness Consultant and the Co-founder of Handi, a sex toy company that puts pleasure within reach for disabled people, joins us to tell three moving stories from his life. The first takes us to his early childhood to the moment that he really felt the emotional weight of his disability. This difficult story is interwoven with the wonderful humor Andrew is famous for. In the second story, he recounts the first time he had sex as a queer and disabled young man in college with such transparency and vulnerability that we feel everything right there with him; the excitement, the struggle, and the pain. And in his third story, he exuberantly rolls down the red carpet as his purpose and importance as a queer, disabled activist becomes crystal clear. In this interview, and as always, Andrew is brimming over with full tilt loveability, humor, and naughtiness in the best possible way. We hope you join us for this amazing episode of Open Deeply that allows us all to have a better idea of what it’s like to be queer, disabled and a living testimony to the viral hashtag of his making, #DisabledPeopleAreHot.

Claiming Disability Inc Meets THE ANDREW GURZA! & Heather Morrison CEO & Founder of @thatshandi

Claiming Disability, Podcast

Learn More at https://thatshandi.co/pages/register-interestHandi was founded by disability consultant and activist Andrew Gurza and innovation strategist Heather Morrison from a simple and shocking fact: hundreds of millions of people around the world can’t masturbate due to hand limitations (pain, immobility, lack of dexterity, weakness etc).In fact, our research showed that over 50% of physically disabled people surveyed struggle to achieve sexual pleasure on their own. And shockingly, no products have been designed with them in mind, despite over 90% of those surveyed telling us they wanted one.This puts people in an awkward position (and not the kind we like) of asking someone for help, paying someone every time you want to have a release, or not getting off at all – which isn’t really an option is it? What’s worse, the topic is still terribly taboo and off limits.
