Flex Vibe 

Project started based off the inequality and unawareness surrounding female sexuality. Through research, it was discovered there is disconnect between women understanding their wants and needs, and communicating those to their partners. Wanting to address the importance and health benefits of masturbation, Flex is designed to empower women to explore their sexuality and foster understanding and communication with themselves and their partners.

participating in intercourse”

relationship but when it comes to sex even
long term couples struggle”
