Rub One Out: Finding Your Sexual Crystal Match
A few weeks back NSFW had the pleasure of profiling Vanessa Cuccia, creator and owner of Chakrubs Crystals. An entrepreneur in the spiritual sex arena, Cuccia is dedicated to encouraging self-awareness and love through pursuit of education, and acknowledgement of ancient wisdom and intuition surrounding crystal healing.
Having covered her past and the development of Chakrubs, we went back to Cuccia to discuss the use of Chakrubs in the present, and ask her how one should go about finding the right piece for their own self love practice. Read to the end for an exclusive discount code and shoppable Chakrubs gallery.
NSFW Why are crystals an ideal material for your products?
VC Take away all the metaphysical benefits of crystal healing and you're left with a pleasure tool that is smooth like glass and heavy like steel - two of the most popular materials for sex toys in the industry. It creates a satiating pressure for deep massage and g-spot stimulation. Crystal comes from the earth which makes each Chakrub unique. Add in the metaphysical properties of crystals, and you get what Chakrubs was created for at the core level - a means to connect to the self with purposeful intention. Crystals emit healthy and pleasurable vibrations (energetically). When you allow yourself to tune into the energy of the crystal along with your intention you are creating a practice that brings immediate pleasure through your sexuality while opening up to emotional intelligence and spiritual awareness.
NSFW What should a couple or individual consider when picking the Chakrubs product for them?
VC Practicing listening to your intuition is a big part of starting your practice with Chakrubs. I say to first decide which size and shape is right for you physically - and then let your intuition pick the type of crystal. We list all the metaphysical benefits on each on our website. Reading through these you will get a sense of what resonates with you the most. Other than that - even if you choose based on which color you're most drawn to - that is still your intuition doing its job to attract you to what's yours.
NSFW What is your favorite crystal and why?
VC I have many favorites. I've developed quite the collection, and I work with different crystals depending on my needs of the day. That being said, there are five main crystals we use for Chakrubs.
The Starting Lineup
Rose Quartz: Stone of unconditional love. Soothes the heart center.
Amethyst: Stone of tranquility. Relieves anxiety.
Obsidian: Protection stone. Releases negativity.
Indian Jade: Stone of opportunity. Brings awareness of life's gifts.
Clear Quartz: Master Healer stone. Brings clarity.
More information is available in Cuccia's new book: Crystal Healing and Sacred Pleasure: Awaken Your Sensual Energy Using Crystals and Healing Rituals, One Chakra at a Time. As she states above, prospective buyers should follow their own intuition in picking out whichever stone calls to them.
