I Just (Wanted to Help People Have More Pleasure)! Now What? With Melanie Cristol
One thing that isn’t spoken about enough is the need for safe and intimate pleasure -- and today’s guest is on a mission to make that a reality for so many people.
Melanie Cristol is the Founder & CEO of Brazen Goods and the inventor of the company’s patented product Lorals. Lorals are ultra-thin elastomeric underwear that create a fluid-impermeable barrier during intimate activity.
Designed in consultation with fashion industry experts to look like silky lingerie, Lorals have been featured in Cosmopolitan, Vogue Japan, and a photospread in Playboy’s print edition.
Prior to creating Lorals, Melanie graduated from Columbia Law School and then litigated healthcare, consumer-products, and civil-rights cases in California, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
Listen in as we talk about:
- What Lorals are and what people use them for
- How Lorals are changing the intimacy game
- The importance of safe intimacy and how Lorals help you achieve that
- The manufacturing process and making a product that fits a range of sizes
