We’re #SexyAtEverySize at Good Vibrations!

    My Sexy At Every Size Truth Is:

SexyAtEverySizeTruths-CD

 

At Good Vibrations we’ve long known that you can’t love and pleasure yourself––or share optimally with someone else––if you can’t feel good about your body. It’s a culture full of body shame and people who struggle all their lives to be body-positive. On October we’re trying to boost that signal and so we’re launching a week of social media discussions, events and promotions: #SexyAtEverySize!

We launched the #PleasureIsYourBirthright movement throughout social media to try to alter sex-negative perceptions and to reaffirm the idea that pleasure and sexual health for everyone. The Sexy at Every Size campaign will continue that message, with conversations on body positivity and empowerment.  We’ll also talk about sex toys and products that are better for bigger bodies––those who are proudly self-proclaimed ‘curvy,’ ‘plus size,’ ‘voluptuous,’ ‘fat,’ ‘thick’ & ‘chubby.’ Position pillows, longer toys that offer more reach, and plus size harnesses and lingerie all help make stellar sex more accessible for people of size. Body positivity and access to pleasure for every body is a core value of Good Vibrations.

In addition to free classes and in-store events throughout the entire week of October 10-17th, Good Vibrations will also engage in a social media campaign that will allow people to share their voices and stories with one another. Join us to spread body-positivity globally! Share your #SexyAtEverySize truths. We encourage everybody to snap a photo holding a sign that says “My #SexyAtEverySize Truth is ________”. Body positivity comes in all sizes and shapes, and we want to know yours! You can share via Twitter and Instagram using @GoodVibesToys #SexyAtEverySize.  IMG_5003
