Own your sensuality. Indulge in your bliss. Confidentially.
Let’s get intimate
Shared experiences. Monumental shifts like illness, cancer and mastectomies. Pregnancy, divorce. Menopause! Experiences that profoundly affect our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. So much so in fact, that we lose ourselves along the way. Personal conversations about this are what led Emma Van Dooren and Angie Rylance to create a beautiful, safe, nurturing space where women can reclaim their sexual confidence and become empowered through conversations about the important topics of female health, wellness and sensuality, all while having a little fun.
Tucked away in The Secret Room boutique in Riverside, the Confidential Collection offers a range of luxurious, intimate wellness products and pleasure toys, lubricants, restraints and toy cleaners, curated for the seductive, sophisticated woman. Emma and Angie have sourced the most coveted ranges available, like Glissant, imported from the USA. Besides the pleasure toys, the pair – who boast being a company for women, by women, supporting the journey of rediscovering and reinventing our own pleasure and sensuality – host workshops and talks, there’s a brilliant collection of informative and entertaining blog posts on the site, and if you’re the shy type, you can order online, too. You’ll find them at The Secret Room, Riverside Shopping Centre. Details: 011 4632540, www.confidentialcollection.co.za, Instagram @confidential.collection
Monthly talks and get togethers
Confidential Cares is a series of monthly talks with medical experts, held at The Secret Room. These talks cover various topics that focus on issues experienced by women of all ages. Dr Larisse Badenhorst – one of the partner doctors – has held talks on perimenopausal and menopausal sexual health (so popular they did this one twice) and coming up on August 3 she’ll focus on intimacy and libido. A great time to chat, ask questions, and meet people over drinks and a snack. There’s a charge of R250 a person, and the team plan on extending their professional partner network to include oncologist’s, gynecologists, and sexologists. You’ll find all the info on the website and IG pages.
Glissant Intimate Wellness – available exclusively in SA from the Confidential Collection – was created by a physician and a beauty entrepreneur specifically to improve women’s sexual wellness so they can maintain, reclaim, and elevate their sexual intimacy. Glissant’s philosophy in science and herbology have led to the creation of a range of all natural, hormone and chemical free, luxury intimate products. Their signature products include an oil-based CBD & CBG intimate lubricant made with a combination of pure botanicals and natural arousal ingredients that create a luxurious experience, and a water-based lubricant for those that use condoms and toys, which also naturally enhances arousal. Known as the Coco Chanel of lubricants you won’t want to miss out. Other imported ranges include Lelo, Crave, and Coco de Mer.
