Hey, Cocktale Clubbers!
So, in light of the current events that started in Minnesota and have transpired across the world, I have decided to put together a lengthy list of Black-owned sex-positive brands! That said, this list will consist of brands owned by People of Color that relate to sex — lingerie, sex toys, and sexual hygiene. Please be sure to take the time to actually check these brands out and give your support. And above all else, remember this: Black Lives Matter and all lives cannot matter if Black lives do not matter, too!

I hope this list proves helpful to you all! Please consider supporting these Black-owned sex-positive brands because it really does help out the community in more ways than you know. I also want to take a minute to remember the lives of not only George Floyd and Breonna Taylor but the countless other lives that have been lost at the hands of police brutality. As we have seen across the world, change is wanted and change is needed. We need to treat each other better and I hope that the peaceful protests continue and when they die down, I hope that we will all still come together to demand justice, peace, and equality.
I hope that you all are safe and healthy! If you are protesting, know that you are making a difference. If you would like tips on how to protest effectively and safely, please click here. If you do not feel safe protesting (which is ok), please sign petitions, which can be located here or consider donating, which you can resarch starting here. Above all, be kind to one another always. No matter what.
Peace and love,
