A businesswoman who makes sex toys carved from pieces of crystal is claiming the unique marital aids can heal the body of ’emotional trauma’.
Vanessa Cuccia, from the US, is the founder of natural sex toy company Chakrubs, which also makes the ‘yoni eggs’ made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow after they featured on her website Goop last year.
Cuccia, who came up with the idea in 2011, says that her range of hand-crafted toys made from natural crystal help to promote positive and sexual energy – despite medical professionals warning that using them could be dangerous.
The concept of crystal sex toys first hit the headlines early last year when actress and Goop-founder Gwyneth Paltrow advised followers to buy a pair of ‘yoni eggs’, which are inserted into the vagina to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improve the wearer’s sex life.
The American explained to Refinery29: ‘I wanted to create a mindful practice that sensitises you to subtle energetic vibrations, creating a more emotional connection.
‘This is what I needed when I created the concept – a great orgasm, plus a way to connect to myself on a deeper level.’
