Gwyneth Paltrow has shared some crucial information on the use of vibrators amid the coronavirus lockdown. The Oscar-winning actress sent out a bulletin on her Goop website this weekend citing an article that offered tips on the best sex toys for "solo pleasure and partner play".
In an article titled 'The Best Vibrators for Solo Pleasure and Partner Play', the 47-year-old actress shared an extensive list of toys, tips and tricks. Paltrow champions mind, body and spiritual wellness as well as vaginal health and sexual wellness on her lifestyle brand Goop, but not always without backlash. Earlier, when she had shared advice on vaginal steaming, she received a lot of flak.
In the article she shared for sex toys, some came highly recommended from her. For instance a $148 model We-Vibe by Nova, which is supposedly bath friendly. On the other hand was $135 EVA II from Dame Products that features wings so women can have a "hands-free experience".
The list also includes options for beginners. The $54 The Tennis Coach, which supposedly provides a "gentle introduction" for "first-timers".
This comes shortly after Paltrow and her husband Brad Falchuk hinted at sexual frustration in isolation during a chat with intimacy coach Michaela Boehm. In the video titled 'How Do You Find Intimacy in Uncertain Times?', Gwyneth appeared to hint that the couple was feeling sexually frustrated during isolation.
With couples advised to stay indoors to keep themselves from getting infected with COVID-19, the actress has given lovers tips to spice up their lives in isolation.
"There is quite a lot of stress that comes from trying to recalibrate to this new normal and this level of proximity and so then as a couple, I think a lot of our friends, for example, are going through this. Where do you go as a couple when you're all in the house... what are you supposed to do?" the actress told Michaela.
She also mentioned that a friend of hers was struggling with anxiety over the coronavirus and wasn't feeling sexual. She then asked Michaela on tips for getting in touch with one's sexuality.
"Most women I've talked to are not feeling very sexual. The female body, when put under stress, goes into survival mode," she replied. "Food, comfort and eating sweets to up the body fat — most women are reporting these are the things they want to do. They don't want so much pleasure."
