I Watched an Episode of The Goop Lab so You Don't Have To - But Maybe You Should

Friday January 24, 2020

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

Gwyneth Finally Gets It for Goop

Wednesday September 5, 2018

It has finally happened, the day we've all been waiting for!  The website 'Goop', owned and operated by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, has been settled a lawsuit filed against it for making unsubstantiated health claims about the products it promotes.

Goop has been the bane of my, and several other sexual health educators, existence for several years now.  Paltrow's site positions itself as an authority on products and services that will improve your health and happiness.  She regularly features articles about sexual health and the are thinly veiled ads for products she sells on her site.  Most of them are rife with misinformation and many of the products are actually dangerous.  If you follow my blog, you'll know that I've commented on this many times including her bad information about lube, her hugely properly and downright dangerous jade eggs, and her completely questionable recommendation that we steam our vaginas.Platrow

Lying about Lube

Monday May 22, 2017

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
