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

Using lubricant has only recently become part of my sexual vocabulary. I am going to admit that it never really occurred to me to use it. I always assumed that lubricant was for women who had trouble lubricating naturally.
How very, very wrong I was. Lubricant makes everything go more smoothly (pun definitely intended). Even with proper natural lubrication, using some water-based lubricant makes sex more comfortable for the partners involved. Even in solo sex, lubricant helps, particularly with toys.
