Means Sexual Liberation
Even a decade ago, owning a pleasure device of any kind felt slightly shameful. It was as though it was a secret to be hidden away, in our most private drawer only to be seen on dark lonely nights (or maybe this was just my experience).

As we continue to shift our cultural narratives surrounding sexuality, we are able to propel a ripple effect throughout the industries dedicated to catering to our sexual desires. The pleasure toy industry has been slowly but surely shifting alongside us toward the prioritization of women’s pleasure along with innovations for transgender pleasure as well.

They are helping us to comfortably explore our sexuality and desires without feeling shame or that there is a one-size-fits-all approach.
