Goop’s vagina next to the jade egg and a candle called “My Vagina Smells Like This”, a vibrator feels almost, well, old fashioned.
But that did not stop fans of Gwyneth Paltrow’s often-fake wellness company, Goop, from cracking their new, Double sided wand vibrator, Which resembles a candy-colored gelato cone.
In an interview on Tuesday, Ms. Paltrow expressed disappointment at reducing demand (the vibrator has been sold). After all, an epidemic means a lot of time indoors and alone, and Bounce into sex toys.
And the Goop vibrator makes enough pitch to cope with boredom. A massage ball on one side and a stick on the other side – and eight vibratory patterns for each – means 64 possible combinations (or a different daily sensation for two months of quarantine). At $ 95, it can also be called inexpensive, at least $ 15,000 compared to the gold dildos that Ms. Paltrow once recommended In a Goop newsletter.
“We were always interested in sexual well-being,” said Ms. Paltrow.
Why a vibrator now?
For a lot of people – not for you and not for me – a vibrator is still considered a very beautiful thing. This has obviously changed a lot in the last decade. But still, people are triggered by sexual content or triggered by their own sexuality. Women are not taught a certain language and how to express what we want. We are not good at being vulnerable about our own sexuality.
I think “why vibrator now?” It’s like, “How do we create a vibrator that helps reduce the stigma around that stuff?”
Talk about its design.
So many vibrators look hypersexual. They are either really phallic or they look like something you buy in a sex shop. I was really inspired by the idea that it would be something that looked really pretty and nice, and that you could leave it on your night stand without embarrassing yourself or anyone else. There is something very self-contained about that.
I think we were trying to do something … maybe a little more intellectual.
Female sexual pleasure is less stained. Is this a growing market?
You see it now like amazing new emerging women care products Honey Pot Company, Other consumer companies around the vagina or vulva. There Celebrities who have signed vibrator companies To help promote them. It is wonderful that visible, strong, popular women are saying: “That’s fine. This is not embarrassing and you are not embarrassing. “
Goop has certainly been a partner in creating that path and creating a culture around female health, sexual health and sexuality. So we made A vaginal candle. Let’s remove all this stuff. Get me your estimates. Let me experience myself, my body and my joy in my own way.
Have you tested the vibrator yourself?
I have never been asked that question before. I think you made me blush. I’ll just leave it at that.
A little less personal: any new hobbies during the epidemic?
I wouldn’t say that I have developed new ones, but I have definitely recommended or doubled up on something like meditation. I do this every morning. Before, it probably happened once every week, or maybe not at all. Also, I am cooking all the time, like everyone else in the world.
You played the role of Patient Zero in the film “Contagion”. Did he prepare you for the epidemic?
I remember that I was on the set and people used to say, “This can actually happen, and it will happen in our lifetime.”
Last February, Way became the norm before Face Covering, you posted A selfie on Instagram wearing a mask.
This is a familiar pattern of my life. I do something quick, everyone likes, “What is she doing?” he’s mad. “And then it has been adopted by culture.
I had to make this trip to France when it was all closing. I wore it on the plane, but I didn’t wear it to the function I was going for, and actually got to Kovid and come home, and being one of the first people I heard it from.
Do you plan to take a vaccine?
I still have antibodies. I want everyone who is not protected to go first.
That was stuff that happened many years ago when we were still curating a small company and buying third-party brands that were making claims around their products. We have come a long way from being that small start-up. Also with cunt eggs. This was actually around the claims, but did not include the product. That egg is not dangerous. We still sell it.
