The healing power of crystals are touted everywhere you go these days. From your yoga teacher to your roommate swearing she feels like a “whole new person” ever since she got hers from Urban Outfitters. Now, you can get these magical rocks in the form of dildos, too.
Developed by Chakrubs, a company that claims to be the “original crystal sex toy company” (and hey, who’s going to argue that?), the dildos are handmade from 100 percent crystal. They range from amethyst, for “calm, balance and peace,” to Indian jade, for “calming nervousness, anger and irritation.” And if you’re looking for a prescription for something as specific as “dealing with the ebbs & flows of relationships,” they probably have it in stock — hint: rose quartz.
Chakrubs derives its name from “Chakra,” a word describing energy wheels in Sanskrit. Their official website explains that their unique product will “not only gets you off, but turns you on in way in which you will remain turned on and awakened with a renewed sense of self-awareness and wisdom.” It also encourages you to “delve into your humanness, your divinity, to heal wounds that may hold you back, to discover what is unique about you.” Cheaper than therapy, folks.
As a plus, their design is subtle enough to pass as an overpriced paperweight you bought from West Elm. However, before you drop $180 on a fancy dildo, keep in mind that some experts have warned precious stones are a porous material that can be a breeding ground for bacteria and cause severe infections like toxic chock syndrome. It’s something worth having an illuminating chat with your gyno about.
