Have people not learned? Is anyone still willing to put their vagina and sex life in the hands of Gwyneth Paltrow? She seems to think so, as the guru
of nothing is pushing a new Goop product that’s a supplement to help boost a woman’s libido. If you follow all of Goop’s suggestions, then after a long day of steaming your vagina and doing kegel exercises with a jade egg up in there, your vagina is going to be too tired to be down to fuck! But Goopy’s gotta grift.
Elle UK says that Goop’s newest release is their DTF supplements. Yes, it stands for “down to fuck”–Gwyneth will undoubtedly be hearing from The Situation‘s lawyers. Goop is in on the joke, though–in fact, they said so in their article about it.
“It’s not just about sex: It’s about supporting our pursuit of more pleasure, more often. And yes, we chose to name it DTF. It can be a joke we share.”
It’s not just about sex, it’s about squeezing every last cent out of the ignoramuses who would purchase such a thing. But its ingredients include Libifem® fenugreek extract, which the company says “was clinically shown to support healthy sexual arousal and desire in women.” Another ingredient is Shatavari, which Goop says is “a traditional female health adaptogen.”
But listen, that so what? You should still buy these $55 supplements, and keep buying them, because clinical studies of the ingredients in DTF found that people needed to use them for eight weeks to have any results, and they “will vary” but “consistency is key.” AKA: even if they aren’t working, keep spending your money! Oh, but Goop is sure to remind you that their supplement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
And as usual, like a shadow follows the light, a doctor called out Goop’s “findings.” Dr. Shalini Andrews, who works on the board of the British Association of Sexual Health & HIV (BASHH), said there is “no good quality scientific evidence that supplements work in improving sexual desire in women. There are no supplements licensed for use.” I’m shocked!
I wonder when Gwyneth will leave vaginas alone. Probably never. What side-effects could these supplements hold, I wonder? Maybe she has an ulterior motive? Gwyneth won’t rest until all vaginas on the planet smell like hers!
