These Crystal Sex Toys Promise to Bring Blissful Sexual Healing

Now is the time to up your erotic energy game.

According to ancient belief, some crystals and stones, due to their deep-rooted relationship to the earth, have transformative effects and can bring spiritual relief. There’s been a hot trend to sage the shit out of your new house for good vibes, or to hold onto rose quartz for love, and there’s no shortage of people experimenting with more reasons to include crystal healing into everyday life.

Vanessa Cuccia, the founder of Chakrubs, is marketing a handful of sexual-wellness products that are made from 100 percent pure crystal. Chakrubs is all about helping you find your sexual healing. Cuccia claims her sex toys reduce stress, extract repressed emotions, create a deeper intimacy with the self and, with a partner, encourage self-awareness and mindfulness. Oh, and a whole list of other (too-good-to-be-true?) benefits.

Plus, they are very pretty and look nice on your dresser. They include no dyes, chemicals, or radiation. 

Perhaps the best part of these super natural toys is that, according to Chakrubs, each piece vibrates (well slightly) via magical earth stuff. 

"Chakrubs don't vibrate via batteries, but the idea here is to become sensitive to subtle energetic vibrations,” Cuccia tells Refinery 29.

Just don’t call these crystal toys dildos: Cuccia crafted these sex rocks not to mimic a penis, but to fit the female body on its own. (Which, maybe, that's what the penis was designed to do as well, but let's leave the theory of evolution alone for some other discussion.) Cuccia assures customers that—because of the healing properties associated with different crystals—when users become aroused, the heightened sensory perceptions can be reminders to set intentions for emotional healing. She says that sexual energy combines with the energy of the crystal toy to make desired manifestations manifest—such as manifesting a mind-blowing, magical orgasm. 

Ancient stories and beliefs in crystal healing inspired Cuccia to combine the power of crystals with the power of sexual pleasure. In an interview with Refinery 29, she explains how these toys can really bring you serious bliss: 

Crystals have perfect molecular structures that emit positive frequencies that we can benefit from when we are nearby. Combine this with our intention and sexual pleasure gives us the benefits of crystal therapy and sexual healing. Taking away the metaphysical aspect, Chakrubs are smooth and heavy (depending on their size). They are hard as rock (literally). Easy to clean, easy to warm up or cool down, don't require batteries, promote a healthy sense of self, have no dyes, chemicals, radiation, or anything unnatural. They are art pieces, represented as functional works of art or interactive sculptures. You can place them on your nightstand and honor them instead of feeling ashamed. 

So then do these things really work? Well, if you set an intention to have better sex, and you work at expanding your experience, you might succeed. And there’s no denying that magic crystals, even if not scientifically proven to offer anything beyond a placebo effect, might help you get there. 

It seems women really love these products, and admire them for their true healing powers.

“I have a rose quartz Chakrub that I've had for a very long time and I love it. I keep it locked away in my drawer with my other sacred things and when it's time to play I bring it out and it never disappoints. It is great quality and comes with a nice handmade wrap to keep it in along with some great info on the Chakrub!” Donna Smith-Penn says on Facebook.

The most exciting promise of Chakrubs crystal sex toys isn’t just that they will bring pleasure; they are said to promote healing and health. In a world of sex toys stemming from a male-dominated industry, and in a society lacking widespread sex education, this kind of erotic awakening could really be what women are after.

The joy of sex brings healing powers to focus on yourself, your orgasms, and your sexual health. That might be what crystal sex toys are really promoting.
