Emotion In Motion: Smooth Sailing In Love
First thing’s first – lube, and lots of it. It makes sex feel better for all parties involved, and sex educators agree that using lube can decrease risk of painful sex, STI transmission or the chances of a condom breaking. Unfortunately, not all lubes are created equal in terms of your sexual health. It’s important to do your research about the products you use, and how to use them effectively.
Here at Nooky Box, we do the legwork for you: we only source lubricants made with high-grade materials that are safe to use with toys and latex condoms. This Nooky Box installment includes a bottle of Good Clean Love’s Almost Naked Lube.
Good Clean Love’s mission statement is “To increase the quality and quantity of healthy, loving relationships on the planet by providing natural sexual well-being products and essential educational resources.”
Well said, and at Nooky Box we couldn’t agree more. The box also includes samples from ethically-conscious brands like Pink’s Natural, Sex Butter and Jo Natural, all featuring simple and predominantly organic ingredients. Each of these awesome lubes would be the perfect accompaniment to any of the other toys included in this delivery!
Orgasms: Food Of The Gods
Pandora’s Love Pops provide a mythological backdrop to a modern day treat designed to whet your sexual appetite. In the classical Greek myth, Pandora opens a box (well, technically, it was a large jar) that was gifted to her husband by the gods of Olympus. All the evils that plague humanity immediately escaped into the world before she slammed the lid closed, trapping only ‘Expectations’ deep inside.
There’s a lesson in there somewhere. We don’t know about “evil” and just once we’d like to hear a creation myth where bad things didn’t come into existence as a result of a woman’s curiosity. We get the impression that Jenna Chambers, the entrepreneurial force behind Pandora’s Love Pops, feels the same way. Her herbal lollipops release anything but humanity’s ills. Each candy is designed to “facilitate joy, vitality and unity through unexpected means.”
Her sultry sweets range from elixirs that treat anxiety and depression to her most popular line of products: aphrodisiac lollipops. The tropical blends of coconut and pineapple found in this quarter’s Nooky Box shipment will give your tongue a taste of island life. The medicinal powers of plant medicine are infused in each heart to help you get in the right mindset for sexual healing.
Chambers, an Herbalist healer who comes from a long line of Dutch candy-artisans, started her business in 2012 and has flourished over the last five years. Chambers infuses each handcrafted lollipop with herbs, flowers and essential oils in subtle layers that make for a tasty sweet that crescendos into an orgasmic flavor intense enough to shake the foundations of Olympus itself.
Millennials Laugh When They Do It
The Eggplant Emojibator is fun, hip and effective. We like it so much, we wrote a whole blog post about it! The Eggplant Emojibator brings your sexting to a whole new level and, with its handy “Go F*&! Yourself, Literally” travel case, it can go with you almost everywhere your phone can – and likely a few places your phone can’t.
The Emojibator reminds us to not be so serious. Masturbation is healthy and fun! Gloria Brame, Ph.D speaks about the biochemical basis for the positive effects of masturbation. It “releases feel-good neurochemicals like dopamine and oxytocin that lift your spirits, boost your satisfaction, and activate the reward circuits in your brain. An orgasm is the biggest non-drug blast of dopamine available.”
Basically, there’s no better way to get your heart pumping and your body high-on-life than some good-ole DIY time.
Let’s Build Some Muscle!
Keeping in shape is the central tenant of any physical fitness plan. Muscles matter, and not just for vanity’s sake. We all want to look good during sexy times, but ultimately a healthy body means so much more than that. Being in tune with your physical self and prioritizing regular exercise will help your body master and enjoy all the moving and shaking of your love life.
But don’t forget about the muscles that you don’t see!
Kegel balls, like the BFit Class Love Balls by BSwish found in the Sex is Healthy box, help strengthen the muscles of the vaginal wall and pelvic floor.
The importance of this cannot be overstated, but the information is hardly revolutionary. Depictions of “ben-wa balls”, as they are sometimes known, have been discovered in erotic texts and art depictions dating as far back as 500 C.E. in Burma and Japan. The balls are weighted, and require engaged muscles to hold them inside the wearer – particularly if you’re moving about. Try wearing them around the house or out on the town! Flexing these muscles can also build up arousal, so expect these exercises to become a favorite in your, um, workout routine.
Strong pelvic floor muscles are critical for childbirth (or recovering from it) and avoiding many health concerns, particularly as your body gets older. As these muscles get stronger the region gains more blood flow and sensation, which can mean orgasms are easier to achieve or more intense. The BFit Love Balls are a workout system designed to grow with you. There is a single or double weight harness included, so you can start with 24g and build to 48g as you get stronger. The rewards are well worth the effort!
One Ring to Rule Them All
The Perfect Fit lived up to their name when they released their game-changing line of Cock Rings. All gear in the Perfect Fit’s line is phthalate-free, latex-free and engineered for durability and comfort. The company offers four models in its line, each designed with pleasure and performance in mind.
The Ribbed Clear Cockring (which is part of the Sex Is Healthy Box!) has been heralded as one of the best cock rings available by gay sites across the world, and the Jock Armour model was the 2015 winner of XBIZ’s prestigious Gay Sex Toy of the Year in 2015 award.
This Cock Ring, touted as “gear for the sexual athlete”, is not bound by the limitations of the sexuality spectrum. Female partners are equally enamoured with the effects of the Perfect Fit’s Cock Ring, and find its unique design and pleasurable texture a tantalizing addition to their lover’s wardrobe collection.
Taste the Rainbow
Funky Junk Wipes don’t actually come in all the flavors of the faux-fruit color spectrum, yet. We’re big fans of their roll-out flavor, strawberry; and the company promises that pineapple and mint flavor are on the way. Also, their logo is clever so it’s a win all-around.
Funky Junk Wipes come with you anywhere so you have them at exactly the right time. These convenient single-use packets can be a quick cleansing touch-up before an intimate experience that leaves behind no soapy residue and only bold, tantalizing flavors. Amuse-bouche, anyone?
Use Funky Junk Wipes to entice your partners tongue around the exotic flavors of your love life. Let your tastebuds guide your fantasies into reality.
We hope this quarter’s Nooky Box helps you prioritize your health and vitality through an invigorating sex life. If you aren’t a Nooky Box subscriber already, click here to get these products and find out more about what Nooky Box has to offer.
