    I’m so glad to read that the sexual health conversation is resonating again. A lot of materials used for condoms, lubes, pads and tampons can be harmful. And it is true that companies don’t have to disclose lubricant ingredients, how scary is that?

    Most people do have a brand or style of condom that they prefer. But the way I like to look at it is that if there’s a condom out there that prevents pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases/infections AND is safe to use and natural, then why not use it?

  • I’m glad that Lola is trying to be more open when talking about sexual health, but I think she will have trouble breaking into the market. Most people already have a set brand that they use because they think it provides them the most protection and changing their view on that will be difficult. In my

    I’m glad that Lola is trying to be more open when talking about sexual health, but I think she will have trouble breaking into the market. Most people already have a set brand that they use because they think it provides them the most protection and changing their view on that will be difficult. In my opinion, I don’t think people care about what the condom is actually made out of. As long as it can prevent pregnancy, that’s all that really matters.

  • The US historically has a lack of information shared around sexual health. I had one class in middle school around the topic... and everything else was never discussed except through friend groups and experiences. Thanks to LOLA, HIMS, ROMAN, and other startups the conversation is changing first in America.

    Startups like Lola and Sustain (led by various badass teams of women, from Jordana Kier and Alex Friedman of Lola and Meika Hollander of Sustain, respectively) are now changing the game of sexual wellness with their condoms and products. Lola coming up to challenge Sustain (who also has a huge advantage in Meika's father Jeff, the founder of Seventh Generation, as an advisor) was a natural progression, but the CPG behemoths should be worried.

    Sex tech and sexual wellness tech is changing for the better.

  • Brand loyalty goes out the window right besides the trust you had for your favorite product once you learn they been polluting our bodies for decades. I applaud companies like Lola that maintains a belief system that guides them and profits all involved. @mylolatweet #HealthyLiving @womenshealth @womenshealthmag @girlshealth
