In recent years we’ve made strides in creating safe spaces for conversations about sex and reproductive health. On the other hand, in dismantling misconceptions and years of stigma, there is still a long way to go. One such being, is the stigma surrounding sex products – namely, lube.
What’s the deal with Lube?
Personal lubricant (or as we typically call it, lube) is used during sexual intercourse or masturbation to reduce friction. One common misconception is that you don’t need lube because the vagina self-lubricates during sexual arousal. If someone is “dry” it means they’re not “turned on” enough, or sexually deficient. Women, especially, bear the brunt of this.
Vaginal dryness, it turns out, is not as uncommon as one might think! It can be caused by many other factors and is not solely experienced by post-menopausal women. This is where using lubrication comes into the mix. Lube helps reduce friction, lessening risk of injury and pain. Basically, it helps make sex enjoyable for all parties involved.
Jellytime’s Natural Water-based Personal Lubricant
Jellytime is a local sexual wellness brand that advocates for sex education, open communication, and inclusivity. Founded by sisters Isabelle and Ava Daza, they believe that “everybody and every body deserves pleasure.” If you’re on the hunt for the ideal lubricant, then Jellytime is sure to meet all your criteria!
With Jellytime’s natural water-based personal lubricant, they’ve rebranded lube as a normal part to a healthy sex life. Going beyond what we typically expect of a lubricant, their formula is inclusive, gentle, and effective. Consisting of pure water and plant-derived ingredients like aloe vera and hyaluronic acid, it moisturizes, reduces inflammation, and is safe to use for sensitive skin, condoms, and sex toys. Not to mention, their water-based lube is paraben-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic.
The Perfect Companion: The Chinchilla Personal Vibrator
Sex toys are often used alongside personal lubricants. Whether to spice up a couple’s sex life, or for some me-time, these are used to derive more pleasure. One advantage of using a water-based lube like Jellytime is that it’s compatible with virtually every sex toy there is.
Chinchilla is Jellytime’s newest product and the perfect companion to their water-based lube. Despite the cute appearance, it’s designed to give you the most pleasurable experience.
The “bunny ears” can target pleasure spots such as the clitoris, nipples, and perineum area. With its round shape, you have the perfect grip. Alongside 7 different vibration frequencies that allow you to personalize for maximum pleasure. Its silicone material is hypoallergenic and waterproof. This makes it convenient to clean, highly durable, and feels extra-velvety on the skin.
Breaking the Stigma
Basically, the stigma against lube and sex toys is harmful. People use sex products to experience safer and more enjoyable sex. It’s nothing to be ashamed of at all.
It’s important that we continue to foster positivity in our conversations surrounding sex and reproductive health. As a local sex brand, Jellytime is leading in this conversation by being inclusive and treating lube and sex toys like any other wellness product. This helps remove any negative connotations people have towards sex and reproductive health. Everybody deserves the right to access safe spaces to explore their own body and sexuality.
Their products are available for purchase at Jellytime’s website, Shopee, and Lazada stores. Of course, Jellytime values their customer’s privacy and packs every order in a discreet manner. No need to worry about the marites snooping about what’s going on in your private life (seriously, it’s none of their business). Stay tuned for more products coming this year 2023!
