Small enough to rest on your palm, the versatility of Gwen; Knude Society’s debut vibrator is a stellar addition to any sex toy collection. I was recently sent the Carried Away hamper, which consists of Gwen, a rechargeable, vibrating sex toy, Glide a water-based vegan lube and tote bag with complete with stunning design and cheeky slogan. 

 

Knude Society is a woman-led wellness company, seeking to deliver honest, inclusive, pleasure focussed joy to everyone. Founded by CEO Emma Brown, who by her own volition wanted to create something that invited curiosity and made it’s users feel worthy of titillation. 

 

Now, Knude Society runs a spectacular blog, featuring expert advice, first-person stories and sage wisdom that demystifies solo and partnered sex in all its guises. I love an excellent shame buster, but if you’re looking for information without the loud, garish colours, bells and whistles that can come with the territory then Knude Society’s content is curated in a gentle and compassionate way.

 

GWEN: A toy that’s soothing to behold

 

If you’re in the market for a vibrating toy that is versatile yet simple to use, then GWEN is a worthy investment. Because who really wants to be faffing with knobs (ahem) when you’re trying to orgasm?

 

GWEN only has one button, which makes it easy to use even in the heat of the moment. There is a range of speeds and settings to choose from, too. From gentle murmurs that are gorgeously subtle to intensely concentrated vibrations strong enough to make you let out a gleeful gasp. It lends itself to the moment you’re in; which is perfect if you like to mix it up a bit. 

 

I loved edging with GWEN for this very reason. It’s a perfect toy to build with. Starting with subtle touches to more powerful vibrations. This is what makes it really great if you’re looking for a quick release or meditative masturbation. Get you a vibrator that can do both, that’s what I say.

 

The silicone vibrator is also completely waterproof, which for me is the gift that keeps on giving. I love to be in the bath, so being able to take GWEN with me for a splash is an added bonus. The design is a testament to Knude Society’s ethos, which is “to help everyone enjoy their body in a way that feels right for them.”  

 

The minimalistic and super sleek toy is designed for external clitoral stimulation. The defined bulb at one end allows you to pinpoint and manoeuvre your sweet spots towards climax instinctively. By this very nature, GWEN can be used to mimic oral sex, grinding, pressure focussed pleasure and much more. 

 

There is more here than meets the eye, though.

 

The design is discrete and a far cry away from the thrusting, genital-like toys available. This is what I personally found so delightful about it. As a survivor of sexual assault, having vibrators that don’t resemble male anatomy is highly important to me. It hands back my power and helps me easily relax into an orgasmic state of mind.

 

Its shape and size make it easy to feel the touch of a partner without being directly touched by one. Occasionally that degree of separation makes all the difference when you’re struggling with self-esteem or trauma.

 

What sets GWEN apart from other toys is its ability to lend itself easily to both solo and partnered sex. Its small size makes it a welcome non-bulky extra that adds to a partnered experience, without physical restrictions.

 

I paired GWEN with their GLIDE lube. Even though GLIDE is water-based, it’s as silky as an oil-based lube, but with the added value of being silicone sex-toy friendly. This means that the pairing is simply heavenly, long-lasting and feels incredible.

 

GWEN & GLIDE are a welcome and valued addition to my pleasure arsenal. A pair that reminds me to be gentle with myself and to approach my sexual wellness with intimacy and compassion.

Free bleeding is always something I’ve turned my nose up at - because let’s face it - it doesn’t sound very appealing on paper.

Everyday sexism is holding you back. Well behaved women rarely make history

How sexism reinforces the habit of saying “yes” or “maybe” to things you don’t want to do Everyday sexism reinforces the status quo that it is in fact a man’s world.

It chokes me to write this. It’s a hard thing to pen. But, whether I cry about this while I type, edit and re-read is secondary because it’s a conversation that needs to happen.
