Relationships are hard and if you are one of the lucky few to find yourself together for yet another year, take Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to celebrate your bond, while kicking things up a notch in the bedroom. Don’t miss out on novel experiences, because sex is the adult version of playing in the sandbox.
However, when it comes to shopping for intimate gifts, it can feel overwhelming. There’s a lot of junk out there, including products that contain toxic ingredients for the vaginal microbiome, green-washing and lack efficacy. Fun fact: most drug-store lubricants contain glycerin, a sugar that disrupts the vaginal microbiome, causing an overgrowth of yeast and irritations. So, it is important to read the label.
Luckily, Rythm reads the label for you, by taking an ingredient forward approach to offer safer intimacy essentials. They work with a Clinical Board of Doctors across a Sexual Medicine Nurse Practitioner, a Naturopathic Doctor and Sex Therapist to curate tools, topicals and supplements to make you feel good both in and out of the bedroom.
