Why you’ll want to sample Wendy’s lubes!

Many lubes on the market are not safe for you, but FOF SEXpert Wendy Strgar found a solution. Her company, Good Clean Love, makes “Almost Naked” lubricant that is organic… and sensational.

 Wendy Strgar is a woman on a mission: To tell the women of America a thing or two about the safety of the lubricants that we (and our daughters) are using, not in our cars, but in our bedrooms. We met Wendy when we launched the FOF SEXcellent section since her company, Good Clean Love, produces products for good, clean loving. Whole Foods wouldn’t be selling Wendy’s lubes unless they were as natural as Wendy says they are.

by Wendy Strgar

1.5 ANI have been working in the field of personal lubricants for over a decade. It became an occupation when I desperately needed a solution to the burning, itching reactions I experienced when using petrochemical-based products, which continue to be used widely and dominate the intimacy market. Over the years, I have worked to produce lubricants as clean, natural and healing as possible and was graced to find a formulator who used his deep knowledge of ingredients to create natural and organic products without petrochemicals.

Since beginning my work, I’ve advocated for cleaning up the $219 million lubricant industry, long dominated by a handful of multinational companies whose products are filled with the same petrochemical ingredients also found in oven cleaners and brake fluid. I have long believed that these ingredients were common irritants in the sexual lives of millions of women. I attributed the most common complaints of itching and burning to allergic responses.

Recently, scientific research revealed that my assumptions were misguided. A group of biophysicists–awarded $50 million from NIH to develop a buffer gel to stop the sexual transmission of HIV– found that the majority of over-the-counter gels on the market had “hyperosmolar” petrochemical bases. In simple terms, this means that the weight of the material in each cell of the lubricant is between 10 and 30 times heavier than the weight of human tissue cells. As a result, genital tissue cells are effectively crushed by the excess weight of the lubricant and they shrivel up and are torn away, damaging the genital walls with small tears and compromising their natural immune functions.

Women who use hyperosmolar lubricants are 14 times more likely to contract Bacterial Vaginosis, compared with women using nothing at all. The number of women impacted by BV is staggering. Depending on ethnicity, between 29 and 51% of all women are walking around with it and 84% don’t know they even have it. Its symptoms may be silent, but women with BV are 60% more susceptible to other STDs and HIV. Although researchers aren’t clear about the mechanism of HIV transmission, women with BV are three times as likely to transmit the disease to their male partners.

Many studies show that over 80% of the adult population reports using personal lubricants, and most of them are hyperosmolar. Richard Cone, a biophysicist from Johns Hopkins, said, “virtually all hyperosmolar lubricants need to be reformulated.” The mucosal lining of the vagina is normally a good barrier to infection by itself, he explains, “but when that barrier gets compromised, all bets are off.“The products we make at Good Clean Love were formulated to mimic our body’s own natural moisture. The iso-molar weight of our lube is lighter than sperm and our own body fluid, making it one of the safest lube products on the market.

    I have had hell’s own time trying to find a lube that is comfortable, and that works, ever since I had bladder surgery last summer. This has put a serious dent in a love life that has always been active before, during, and after menopause. I love the idea that this product is ‘natural’ because I make a concerted effort to purchase products that are organic, or as chemical-free as possible. Please help us get that lovin’ feelin’ back…..:-)
