Menstrual Equity

 

"One in ten young women can't afford pads or tampons when they need."

While we are advocating for normalizing the perception on female sexuality and supporting women to explore their own bodies and sexual preferences, it is also our passion to stand in solidarity with organizations that are fighting for sexual and reproductive health and rights issues. It is our goal to fight for menstrual equity and to end menstrual poverty.

What We Do

 

We share 2% of the revenue to our "Menstrual Movement Fund" and donate to selected non-profit organizations that helps women on their menstrual hygiene supplies.

Pentone's Newest Color Is a Nod to Menstruation: Period Red

The color registery, with the Swedish brand Intimina, takes aim at an old taboo and barrier to women's equality.

By focusing on menstruation, Pantone said, it wants to overturn a taboo and draw attention to a regular life phase with a color that is “energizing” and “dynamic.”

 

"Period poverty remains a serious issue affecting women around the world, including young women in North America.

In fact, one-third of Canadian women under the age of 25 say they’ve struggled to afford menstrual products, a new report stated."

Listen To Their Stories

This is Period Poverty

This is Period Poverty is a campaign created and produced by Winslow Magazine to raise awareness about period poverty in Toronto. This campaign shares the stories of individuals who have experienced homelessness and the challenges they have faced while managing their periods without access to appropriate menstrual products. These stories highlight the social, political and economic factors that create obstacles for menstruators in-need across Canada, and throughout the world.

This is Period Poverty is intended to start a conversation about menstrual equity and generate donation dollars for The Period Purse. The Period Purse is a non-profit organization that works to achieve menstrual equity through outreach, education and advocacy. To date, The Period Purse has provided supplies to support over 21,989 healthy periods.

"The Cost of Menstrual Shame | Kayla-Leah Rich | TEDxBoise"

Somewhere between a young girl convinced she is dying because she is bleeding, and an artist who paints with only her period blood, is the happy medium where we can discuss menstruation as naturally as the process itself. What is the cost of the privacy and silence in which we enshroud menstruation? We need to remove menstruation shame, replacing it with feminine dignity. Period.

Kayla-Leah is courageously ending the silence on the topic of menstruation. After experiencing a period in a third-world country, she realized that even in developed nations, there is a cost to not having permission to talk about what happens with and to the female body during menstruation. She brings humor and reason to this important conversation.

This Little Whale will be your new best friend!

Cuddly Buddy Collection has new toys and I am so excited for them! This Little Whale was an amazing experience. I also have the original cuddly bird design which is one of my favourite toys so far. Since I have tried both toys I can make a quick review/comparison of both together.

As someone who enjoys more external/clit stimulation rather than penetrative stimulation with my toys, Little Whale was a perfect mix of vibration, pulsation and licking motion. Cuddly Bird has amazing suction features but I consider that it lacked vibration. Little Whale has amazing vibration power for those who enjoy those features and it also has really good suction power. I absolutely love the fact that you can remove the upper suction "mouth" for anyone who either needs that adjustment or simply wants to enjoy the licking motion more often. I found that the licking motion was a bit fast even at its lowest level and it didn't seem natural to me but I also know this is a personal preference and I know others who enjoy the vibration and faster licking motion toys. This one is perfect for anyone who would like to combine all three aspects. I also use it with my partner during sex and it just adds a lot to it. My partner also enjoys the vibration of it and it enhances the pleasure.

I honestly don't really use the self-warming feature, I am not saying it is not a good feature, but I personally feel better without it as it tends to heat up quite a bit on the "belly" of the whale where I place my hand to hold it.

I think overall it is a beautiful toy and it just has all the different elements that any other person would enjoy. I've been using it for a couple of months now and the quality is really good, as usual. Have you tried it? Let me know what you think? (@erotica_peach)

Strong toy for a quick O

I got my cuddly buddy about a month ago (I like to get to know my toys before writing a review). I am very happy with it! It's outside is super soft and a little squishy which is so much nicer then hard plastic. I did have a bit of an adjustment period at the beginning because the suction is WAY stronger than my last one. And I mean STRONG! Half the time I don't even have to go past the first setting! I find the vibration part is definitely weaker but it's still nice, especially when you back and forth between suction and vibration.

The only two difference (or downsides) is less spikes than whats shown and colors are slightly pastel in person rather than vibrant (if you are picky with what you purchase), other then that you are getting exactly whats in the pictures and they package it well making sure that it keeps its shape! (The second and third ones are to show how big and small it can be)

Better than I expect!

The package actually arrived earlier than expected. I was so happy I ordered before the Christmas traffic jam. The toy has a very smooth body and the size fits my hand perfectly. I have to admit it was my first time trying this kind of sonic pulsation and IT IS THE BEST ORGASM I EVER HAD!! Put a towel underneath, my friendly reminder. Highly recommend!!!
