They’ve been together for more than two decades, but Wendy Strgar’s marriage almost broke up over sex. No, this is not a morality tale: Because of lack of lubrication—the primary reason women say no to sex, according to a recent study—Strgar suffered such pain that she avoided intercourse altogether. After realizing how common a problem uncomfortable or painful intercourse is for women, Strgar started Good Clean Love, an organic lubricant company—and saved her marriage in the process.
A certified Coop America Green Company, Good Clean Love makes lubricants that are non-irritating, petro chemical and paraben-free. They mimic the natural mucous that the body produces—in contrast to synthetic lubricants made from chemicals that can disrupt normal hormone function. Good Clean Love’s water-based lubes derive from all-natural, mostly organic and wild-crafted ingredients like herbs and flowers, aloe vera, seaweed, and xanthan gum. By stimulating the arousal mechanism through scent while augmenting a woman’s own natural lubrication, Good Clean Love’s lubricants and oils eliminate pain during sex. Plus, the company supports The Breast Cancer Fund’s Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
And all products are safe to use with condoms, during pregnancy and even with toys, like Babeland’s splash-proof, eco-friendly Lava Spot vibrator. It’s made of elastomer, a new latex-free and phthalate-free material, and its ergonomic shape and three distinct vibrations keep the excitement going, even when you’re on your own.
