LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX
The sexual wellness market is heating up
When you think of "wellness," sexual health should be included as an essential aspect of self-care, just like everything showers and rejuvenating cold plunges. And, with 72% of U.S. Trendsetters frequently researching sexual health products before making a purchase and the global sexual wellness market projected to reach $110.3B by 2030, brands continue to reshape society's perception of sex and sexuality. As we commemorate Sexual Health Month this September, let's explore the new wave of sexual wellness brands revolutionizing the industry with contemporary, approachable, and inclusive pleasure products.
MY GIRL WELLNESS
Established in 2021, My Girl Wellness is a wellness brand dedicated to offering natural solutions for common women's health concerns. Presently, the brand features two products in the realm of sexual wellness: the Panty Dropper and the Post-Play. These items are available as part of a bundle, including a serum and cleanup wipes designed to elevate intimate experiences.
