Chatting about lube on the tube! Gwyneth Paltrow’s first-ever Goop sex issue recommends several products to avid readers, including a $15,000 dildo, but the actress is most excited about a nontoxic lube she found. She raved about the item during the second episode of Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix talk show, Chelsea.
Paltrow, 43, was inspired to search for the perfect lube after watching Netflix’s Grace and Frankie. Lily Tomlin’s Frankie has been making her own lubrication out of yams for years.
“We started thinking, Is lube toxic? Why is she making homemade lube? And then we started reading [the ingredients]. We’re very conscious about nontoxic products at Goop. And we learned that lube is actually really toxic,” Paltrow explained to Handler, 41. “It goes in very absorbent areas, as we know, so, yes, we found a nontoxic organic lube that we are now selling on Goop.com!”
A bottle of the Sliquid lube costs $13. “We set out to find a lube that comes close and meets the standards of the Goop clean beauty shop,” Paltrow’s site reads. “And to the joy of parched vaginas everywhere, we did.”
Goop’s recent sex issue also features a Lelo Adore Me Pleasure Set ($189), a Jimmyjane Seduce Me Feather Tickler ($69), an Agent Provocateur Cat Whip ($535) and the aforementioned 14-karat-gold dildo ($15,000).
“Sex Toys have long since graduated from the floppy rubber things you hide in your bedside table to beautiful works of interactive art,” the Goop staff writes.
Paltrow became one of the first celebrities to start a lifestyle brand when she launched Goop in 2008. Along the way, she’s received some backlash for some of the site’s more expensive items.
“I think it is challenging for people to change careers. If you’re in the public eye and you make a shift, I think it’s confusing for a minute,” Paltrow said to Handler. “In a lot of ways I was the first, so I took a lot of s–t.”
