I’m sort of wanting a stim toy that I can chew with, after already having destroyed many, many things before with my need for chewing. I can’t really buy something online, and I kinda want it to be discreet. Closest idea I have is buying a puppy chew toy, which probably won’t bring up many questions given I live with two dogs who also love to chew on things.
This is my very favourite chewy stim-toy:
It has no flavour I can discern, it’s really smooth so stuff doesn’t stick to it, making it really easy to keep it clean, and every corner has a different texture! Plus it’s a really pretty colour!
this site has a lot of different chewy stim toys, including pendants designed to look like regular necklaces. so, if you’re looking for discreet, check that out.
on the other hand, if the reason you can’t buy something online is bc you need to check the texture/consistency/something beforehand, that doesn’t really help you. but you could maybe find helpful reviews from people who’ve already bought them to find out more? and if nothing else, you could check out what they have to give you ideas.
i mean, you might find something not originally designed for stimming, that’s totally discreet, and just happens to meet your requirements. i tend to touch everything in stores just to check if it’s stimmable.

This is some of my favourite graffiti in the world. It’s by the traintracks, at the corner of Commerce and Statler, in Staunton, VA. It makes me really happy every time I see it.
heey so we just got a message on the machine that the hydro company is going to shut off the power if we don’t pay the entirety of the sum owed within 24 hours
this has been part of a long winded adventure with juggling debts around since our previous tenant ditched us with a massive hydro…
Hey please please donate if you can, this is really urgent and really important
i’m gonna need everyone to stop saying disabled people are stereotyped as asexual because:
- using asexual as a synonym for unattractive or impotent is allosexist.
- it assumes all disabled people are subject to the same sexual stereotypes, which is untrue, and plays into the disability hierarchy.
- some disabled people are asexual and that’s ok!!
Additionally: It’s much better to say that people with disabilities are desexualized, because to describe us as “stereotyped as asexual” implies that asexuality in a disabled person is affirmed, when it’s more likely for a person to tell you you’re not really asexual because of your [insert disability], and to tell you that that if you didn’t have [disability] you would not be asexual. It spreads misinformation about disabled sexuality AND asexuality to say we’re stereotyped as asexual.
Not all disabilities are desexualized, though. Hell, I’d even go as far as saying that people with certain “dramatic” mental illnesses are often stereotyped as promiscious and overly sexual. Off the top pf my head borderline, bipolar, narcisstic pd, histrionics & antisocials are all stereotyped and fetishized as hypersexual. Especially bipolar mania is subject to this all the time. See movies such as Silver Linings playbook where the bipolar/manic main character is a repeatedly referred to as a slut and gets fired for sleeping with everyone at work.
that’s precisely what i was referring to with different disabilities being subject to different sexual stereotypes.
desexualized is a good term to discuss how some disabled people are perceived, but other disabled people are hypersexualized, and that’s just as harmful.
