I Watched an Episode of The Goop Lab so You Don't Have To - But Maybe You Should
Gwyneth Paltrow's show, The Goop Lab, went up on Netflix this morning. As promised, I watched it, so I can tell you how absolutely horrible it is. I started with the thing I'm most interested in, the episode on orgasms featuring Betty Dodson. If you have read my blog or heard me speak at all, you'll be familiar with how I feel about Goop and Gwyneth Paltrow, so I'm going to suggest that you sit down and take a deep breath before you read the next sentence.
I really liked this episode.
No, I am not setting up a punchline. Yes, I actually did really like this episode.
I think the reason I liked it so much it that the vast majority of the time was given to Betty Dodson and her business partner Carlin Ross.g
Lying about Lube
I know you’re probably getting sick of me picking apart Gwyneth Paltrow’s site, Goop, but I just have to do it again. I was reading some information today about lubricants and that led me back to Gwyneth and her terrible page on the topic. Lubes are something that people get very confused about because there’s a lot of really bad information floating around out there. I thought it was important to clarify some of the things on this page, which is, sadly, filled with lies. It’s a question and answer with Dr. Maggie Ney who is not a medical doctor but rather a naturopathic doctor. She claims to be an expert in hormones but she sure doesn’t know anything about lube. Here’s are the blatant lies in this piece.
Lie #1 – The FDA does not regulate what goes into lubes
