How are you hanging in and navigating the coronavirus quarantine, babe?
Working from home is just one new challenge you may be working through right now. Totally understandable. Basically overnight, a LOT of people went from workin' 9-5 to an all-out free for all, like going buck wild during summer vacation back in the day! Late nights! Sleepovers! Sleeping in! What day is it?!
But now, we are adults.... so there's booze, snacks, Netflix, and weed (in legal states, of course!). Which is pretty damn awesome ....but also, your own private Temptation Island. Yikes!
If you're trying to get into a work from home groove but can't seem to get it right, it's all good. It's a work-in-progress!
Hopefully this topic isn't too rando to read on a sex toy website! But what gives US pleasure is helping you live your best life - so much that we created the Quarantine Self-Care Series, which you can read here! It's all for you. <3
An *ideal* scenario (aka my 'perfect day') looks like this - but feel free to take what really clicks with your lifestyle, and omit the rest.
Buckle up and settle down- this is a lot to sift through!
Do we still trip out every time we start a blog about things to do in quarantine?
Times are still strange, unlike anything we've ever seen....and now that the social distancing rule has been extended until April 30, we can use all of the time-passing activities we can get, right?

Our latest Quarantine Self-Care series installation continues with a list of our favorite women's empowerment books to give you some mentally stimulating brain candy! Turn off the phone and focus on some new lit next weekend!
As a sexual wellness company, we feel an obligation to help consumers focus on pleasure and love, and we are being called to step up right now, to help lead our community towards feeling good - mind *and* body.
Connection and intimacy should be a priority in a relationship every day - but we all know that's not always easy. During a time of crisis, like the current coronavirus pandemic, it is imperative to make the effort and time for connection.
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

If you’re reading this right now you 99% likely have a working phone and internet access - two things to help us stay connected. There are two immediate, and easy, things to appreciate.
Taking the time to recognize our blessings is a choice. Doing that regularly, and cultivating more joy in our lives is a practice.
Continuing our blog series during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are here to stock your self-care toolbox with mental and sexual health resources that you can call on in a pinch.
EFT is one of our favorite healing modalities. The best part: it's free, you can do it anywhere, anytime, and may be the simplest way to clear your mind of mental blocks. It can be especially helpful if you find yourself in an anxiety spiral about work, a lack of funds, the general state of global affairs right now. (And so much more.)
Question: WTF is sex magic?!
Answer: Using your orgasm to manifest some sh*t!
Your gonna masturbate anyways - might as well use that orgasm to bring your desires into real life!
Seriously: It can't hurt *AND* - new hobby alert!
Things have gotten really, really REAL over the last 7 days in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe.
While the general circumstances, the news, the UNKNOWN, etc. are extremely nerve-wracking, the time is now to up the ante and really focus on how to nurture yourself to the best of your ability.
As a sexual wellness company, we acknowledge that sexual health is just one piece to our physical and mental health. And if we can't find peace of mind on the day-to-day (outside of the bedroom), enjoying anything inside of the bedroom can be damn near impossible.
Because of this we take responsibility (and pleasure) in sharing accessible and helpful information as it may relate to feeling good.
For the foreseeable future, we will be bringing you a variety of self-love tips, rituals and techniques for those who are self-quarantining or simply stockpiling self-care activities. Read on for our two favorite DIY detox bath recipes that are easy to make, and super cost-friendly.
