This week is National Women’s Health Week (May 8-14)! It is led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. For more information, click here. We think that being healthy also includes your sexual health and CalExotics agrees. In fact, CalExotics number one goal is to promote sexual health and wellness and everything they do revolves around that goal.
With that goal in mind along with honoring National Women’s Health Week, CalExotics and Living Beyond Breast Cancer® (LBBC), a non-profit organization supporting women affected by breast cancer, have partnered together to launch a new product line called Inspire™. The Inspire™ collection consists of sexual health and wellness products designed specifically to address the sexual side effects of breast cancer treatments. According to Susan Colvin, Founder and CEO of CalExotics, “The positive effects of taking care of one’s sexual health are well-documented and these products will help support women as they rebuild their sexual lives going forward.” What’s also great is that the Inspire™ collection supports and generously donates proceeds from these items to Living Beyond Breast Cancer®.
Well as Clinical Sexologists and Sex Therapists, we absolutely love all the products in the Inspire™ collection! In fact, here are a few of our favorites:
- Inspire™ Weighted Silicone Kegel Training Kit: Exercising the Pelvic floor or PC muscle is very important to your sexual health. The basic function of the pelvic floor or PC muscle is to hold the bladder, uterus and bowels in place. It also helps with incontinence. Having strong pelvic floor muscles can increase the chances of having orgasms and increase the frequency of the orgasms. The Kegel Training Kit offers three gradually increasing weights. This is important, just like in regular weight training you want to increase as you go to strengthen the muscle. Not only can the exercisers be used to increase the strength of your PC muscles but they can be used to create arousing sensations as you move it around. You can benefit sexually from the Kegel exercisers and have some fun while exercising!
- Inspire™ Silicone Dilator Kit: Pelvic radiation therapy can shorten or narrow the vagina making it difficult for sex. Chemotherapy can cause symptoms of early menopause which include vaginal dryness, vaginal tightness and painful intercourse. Vaginal dilators can help women manage the symptoms by keeping the vagina flexible and elastic which can improve their physical comfort with vaginal intercourse. This Silicone Dilator Kit has 5 gradual sizes that are ergonomically curved to make using them easier. The finger loop helps you to control the dilator but you can also insert a vibrator to use it for pleasurable purposes. They can also improve your sexual pleasure since they have 10 functions of vibration as well!
- Inspire™ Vibrating Ultimate Wand: When people think of vibrating wands, most people just think of pleasure. However, there are many sexual health benefits of using vibrating wands. The Vibrating Ultimate Wand can help increase arousal, decrease pain during and after intercourse, and ward off vaginal dryness and weakening of muscle tone in pelvic area. It can also promote vaginal health and blood flow circulation and provide sexual stimulation which releases hormones that can positively affect your overall health and well being. The Vibrating Ultimate Wand is a USB rechargeable wand that offers 10 functions of vibration, pulsation and escalation which is perfectly designed to increase your circulation as well as your pleasure. Perfect for your sexual health and your pleasure!
These are just a few of our favorites from the Inspire collection. So, in honor of National Women’s Health Week, we hope you feel inspired to make your sexual health and wellness a priority. So check out the Inspire™ collection and support Living Beyond Breast Cancer® at the same time!
