The declaration of COVID-19, a.k.a. coronavirus, as a pandemic has everyone stocking up on canned goods and toilet paper. Almost 1,235,199 cases have been reported worldwide, with close to 277,205 cases reported in the United States as of April 4th, 2020.

As a society, we are putting in a lot more thought when it comes to what we put in our bodies. This thought and care has made its way into the sex industry, as it should — I care about what I put in/around my genitals, don’t you?

Organic lube, in general, prides itself on being free of hormones, synthetic chemicals, and gentle to our sensitive areas. With ingredients you can actually pronounce, it is likely your body (and sex life) will appreciate the switch.

However, organic lube is still a pretty niche market, and while people may have a general feeling of what it is, it’s always good to sort fact from fiction. In that light, here’s everything you need to know about organic lube!

When I first ventured into the world of BDSM, almost three years ago, I’d come crashing and burning out of a decade long abusive relationship and I was pining to explore and reclaim my personal and sexuality sovereignty.

Taking it in the derriere is still a little taboo. However, it seems that anal sex may be on the rise! Anal sex is primarily growing in popularity with couples under age 45. A national survey from the National Health Statistics Reports found that, 36% of women and 44% of men reported that they’ve had anal sex with an opposite-sex partner.

When it comes to managing Aunt Flo, our devilish monthly visitor, most of us turn to the two most traditional options available at any convenience store: pads or tampons. Unfortunately, many commercial products contain a whole boatload of nasty chemicals that no one wants to put in their body.
