Our Partner: Maude
Sex, self-pleasure, and the use of external enhancers have been taboo topics for decades, leaving many people without the knowledge of how to care for their sexual health and wellness. Thankfully, there are brands like Maude who prioritize education, accessibility, sustainability, and inclusivity when it comes to their products. Maude has one central goal: make intimacy better – for all people. Founder and CEO Èva Giocochea sums up Maude’s mission to create sleek, easy-to-use products for everyone: “Maude is just as much for those young, virile straight couples as it is for that new parent who must fit intimacy into a newly-hectic lifestyle, for the LGBTQ community, or for that recently single 50-year-old who feels like no brand actually speaks to them.”
Urban You For Me carries two of Maude’s best sellers, Drop and Vibe. While each has its own intended purpose and traits, they share a multitude of benefits. Drop and Vibe come in a variety of neutral colors and include canvas pouches for sanitary, discreet storage at home or on the go! They’re latex-free, water resistant, USB-chargeable, and are made with platinum grade (FDA grade) silicone. Each can be purchased on our website for $49, UYFM members receive a 20% discount and earn loyalty points that can be exchanged for discounts on future purchases.
Drop is a sleek, palm-sized vibrator meant to mimic the ball of a wand without the hassle of a large handle attached to it. Its small, compact design makes for easy travel and storage, as well as resulting in a closer, more intimate experience while you (or your partner) use it! When fully charged, Drop can be used for 1.5-2 hours depending on the intensity level used. With 3 speeds and a singular button, Drop is easy-to-use for anyone, regardless of experience level with sexual-pleasure products. Use water-based lubricant if desired. Avoid silicone or oil-based lubricants as they will degrade the silicone of Drop. Shop for your Drop here!
Vibe is an erogenous zone massager with an oval shape and flutter tip designed for focused stimulation and easy self-pleasure (though it can be used with a partner as well). Called best in show by The Strategist and one of Maude’s top rated products, Vibe’s reputation speaks for itself. With a runtime of 2.5 hours after being fully charged and a battery indicator light, you’ll never have to worry about Vibe running out of power and interrupting your intimacy. Similar to Drop, Vibe has a single button and 3 speeds, making it easy to use for anyone regardless of experience level with sexual-pleasure products. Use water-based lubricant if desired. Avoid silicone or oil-based lubricants as they will degrade the silicone of Vibe. Shop for your Vibe here!
You shouldn’t feel shame about wanting to experiment with sexual enhancers of any kind. Sexual wellness works hand-in-hand with physical, mental, and emotional health. Maintaining a healthy sex life, either alone or with a partner, can help boost self confidence! Pleasure is a form of self care, Maude makes it accessible and easy.
