Following renewed discussions about police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, social media has also sparked conversations about institutional racism in corporations and ways to invest money in the Black community. One way you can tangibly support Black creatives is by buying from their businesses. By purchasing goods from the following Black-owned sexual wellness companies, you're directly supporting underrepresented sexual health professionals, designers, aestheticians, and kink practitioners who deserve all the hype.
The ways you can tend to your sexual well-being are endless. Sometimes, self-care looks like adding a vibrator or cock sleeve to your cart to get in touch with your body and what feels good. It might look like working up the courage to buy your first butt plug, or a pair of handcuffs so you can finally start exploring your kinks. It might be investing in lingerie to feel like a bad b*tch, ethereal candles to set your solo-sex mood, or vulva cream to soothe your vagina after play.
Here are 14 Black-owned brands to keep on your radar the next time you're looking to get sensual, kinky, or nurturing when it comes to your sexuality. Along with checking out their websites, you can also hit these brands with a friendly "follow" on Instagram to further support their businesses and stay in the loop.
