Your body, mind, AND spirit will thank you for it! Trust us when we say this. Self-pleasure is not sinful… its self care!
“Masturbation is our first and natural form of sexual activity and if that’s inhibited or damaged, then we suffer for the rest of our lives.”
Betty Dodson, American Sex Educator

Pleasure toys are NOT one size fits all…
If you have had an otherwise healthy relationship with adult pleasure toys then you know that some toys work better for our ample bodies than others. It’s frustrating to invest money into a toy that doesn’t take you to the river because of size! Many of us have been there… This is why we consulted an expert to help us prevent any further purchase regrets!
Lendise Braxton is the CEO of Sedure, a Black woman-owned company, selling premium pleasure products. According to Lendise, many adult toys are often not a good option for plus-sized bodies because they don’t take our bodies into account for the design. Being fat and sexually frustrated is not a good combination, especially after spending a couple of dollars on an adult toy!
Lendise went on to explain that when catering to curvy clientele, length matters. More importantly, flexibility matters. Furthermore, the way that some toys are designed, unfortunately, makes it challenging for a person of size to adjust the speed comfortably without stopping.
