In designing the pattern for this product, it was such a joy to celebrate women and femmes taking pleasure into their own hands. I love to capture all kinds of femmes in ways they typically aren’t represented.
For so long, it has been taboo, shameful or unexpected to talk about sexual pleasure as something that we can create for ourselves by ourselves. I hope that Le Wand brings you feelings of autonomy and power over your own beautiful body, because you deserve that.
What Makes You
Feel Most Powerful?
Discover the five babes who inspired the Feel My Power Le Wand.
ABIGAIL GLASGOWQuite simply, humans. With every new anecdote shared from a fellow person, I continue to feel empowered. I don't do as much reading (or listening) as I should, because we're so engrossed in our own day-to-day, but I feel most powerful when I swallow the words of another person and make them quotidien.
ELIZABETH LEHMANNKnowing that life is short, and that I can only make myself happy. Both of these have to do with my mom - she died way too young and the last thing she said to me was “you can only make yourself happy.” Everyday, this fills me with the motivation to be the best, and feel the best that I can. The knowledge that we’re only here for a finite amount of time encourages me to make the most of it: to love hard, wear what I want to wear, eat what I want to eat, be the best friend, daughter, sister, cousin, godmother, etc. that I can be, and to live life everyday the way that I want it to be lived. Nothing centers me more or makes me feel more powerful than the motivation to be everything I want to be right now: happy and loving.
GABBY PEDRIANII’ve spent a lot of time trying to be someone else — whether that’s to fit in or to make somebody happy. After all this time, I’ve realized that I feel most powerful when I let all of that go and get in tune with who I actually am. I’m not perfect (obviously) and still compare myself to, and occasionally mimic, others - but I feel best about my accomplishments when they’re achieved through being exactly who I am.
GWEN ROSENLearning new things. I stumbled into sex education after asking some frankly ignorant questions in my Intro to Sociology class during my freshman year of college. I was so stunned that at 18 years old, I was only just getting the opportunity to talk about gender and sexuality as fluid parts of our identities. While frustrated that our country’s fear of sex education delayed this light bulb moment for me, I’m also inspired that every day has the possibility for a discovery that could totally change the way I see the world. There are endless perspectives and stories around us, and soaking them in makes me feel like anything is possible.
JENNIE SNYDERThis may almost sound too simple to generate a certain level of power, but I'm sincerely grateful for my willingness to ask a question. In my active curiosity I am either absorbing undiscovered knowledge, connecting with a new favorite human, embarking on a new business venture....or my jaw is falling to the ground in complete shock. I’ve been asking questions for the last 29ish years of my life and it has gotten me to where I am today: a place in which I'm proud to currently stand, and a place that allows me to be eager for where I'll go next.
ASHLEIGH NICOLE TRIBBLEWhat makes me feel empowered is my sexual relationship with myself. For so long I have been taught to experience sex in a negative, reactionary way, “Don’t get pregnant. Don’t catch an sti, etc.” This advice was thrown at me with the underlying problem of these teachers assuming that I was naive and desperate, and rather than showing me that I should participate, they taught me to anticipate, as if sex was something that was just supposed to happen to me. Taking control of my sexuality is something that has saved me and my relationship with myself because for so long, sex was something that was taken from, coaxed out of and bargained out of me - now I understand that for someone like me, sex doesn’t have to be used to please others at my expense. It can be experienced for my ascensions and beyond.
