I am open to reviews via email for research projects/articles, but please be aware that it might take some time to get back to you due to chronic illness.

My preferences for interviews are via text chat/email due to hearing loss. Interviews and podcasts must be held via chat and will require information beforehand – for example, questions, and interview structure.

Guest Posts

TheRubyUmbrella.com. accepts guest posts.

I love to have more voices on this website about topics that I’m not personally knowledgeable about, for example, trans issues, penis entered issues – especially pertaining to disability and more.

All guest posts must not be posted anywhere else and must contain unique content. If I find your post anywhere else on the internet, your guest post will be pulled from TheRubyUmbrella.com and I will not accept another guest post from you.

Anonymous guest posts on sex work, disability, sexuality and more without links are accepted for free, subject to approval.

Sex Work Consultancy

I am highly knowledgeable about the sex industry and all the ins and outs of sex work. I, Ruby Rousson (also known as Mistress Rousson), have been a sex worker for over 7 years, and have been involved with in many different realms of sex work.

The consultancy I offer is primarily via email or text chat due to hearing loss.

Disability Consultancy


Are you a new sex toy company looking to make your products accessible? Want to have a second opinion before you spend thousands of pounds on production? Or do you have a store layout you’d like a wheelchair users opinion on?

Disability business, product consultancy, and n store accessibility cost to be discussed.


I have been disabled for all my sexual life. I am an ambulatory wheelchair user, with grip problems, sensation loss, chronic pain and more. I know finding the right sex toy is tricky, but that’s where I can help out.

Contact me if you think you’d benefit from my personal sex experience, and I’ll work something out. Price is on a sliding scale.

Paid Product Reviews

Toys, books, lingerie, games, movies, documentaries, and more!

Unless a trusted affiliate, all product reviews must be paid for and must be paid in advance. The fee covers time to spend testing the toy, photographing the toy, and writing the review.

All reviews are honest and unbiased. I am primarily interested in reviewing toys, lingerie, and other products for accessibility, and thus will be brutally honest.
