While on the surface my business is selling sex toys, what I'm really trying to achieve is a world where people don't feel shame about their sexual-selves.
As a country, our sex-education (or the lack thereof) totally failed us, leaving lots of folx with lots of questions about our own bodies, what is 'normal' when it comes to sex, and how to maximise the pleasure we feel. With Self & More, my aim is to fill in some of those gaps in a way that is fun, safe and accessible.
Our collection is an ode to self pleasure!
Our first tees were focused on the word 'wanker' - a phrase which typically makes you think of tugging a dick - I wanted to claim that word for people of all genders and anatomy.
Wanking is an activity which many of us have been told is shameful and as such is kept very private - these tees are a way for people to wear their wanker status loud and proud! I wanted to put the word upside down so that the wearer can read it whilst wearing it - after all, wanking is often one of the only sexual activities that we do purely for our own gratification.
My fave tee is a pretty new addition to my collection. This design is by tattoo artist @paulinabas and I just love how the sexy devil looks like she's up to no good.
And finally, what are you doing to survive lockdown?
I just got my hands on a copy of one of @the.london.vagabond zines, and it's safe to say I'm obsessed. Just the kind of smut I needed to brighten up the monotony of lockdown.
I just devoured the entire season of Giri/Haji on Netflix. Gory and touching in equal measure, and recommended by my mum!
What am I looking at, at the moment? My phone, my computer, my TV, the shelves in Lidl, a bunch of vibrators: repeat indefinitely and you get the idea.
