Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says that her candle called “This Candle Smells Like My Vagina” was a “feminist statement” meant to expose the “shame” that surrounds “a woman’s private parts.”
But contrary to this newest claim, Paltrow originally claimed that the name evolved as a joke.
For instance, Goop promoted body vibes stickers, which it claimed could “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies,” as well as sex dust, coffee enemas, “inner beauty” powder, vaginal eggs, handcuff bangles, vaginal steamers, “Psychic Vampire Repellent,” a BDSM kit, and a self-love spray.
Paltrow’s company claimed the eggs can “balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, prevent depression, prevent uterine prolapse and a combination of other illnesses.”
Despite the controversy, Paltrow’s company now has a home at Netflix with the streaming now playing a six-episode series called Goop Lab.
