How do I use PLEASURE PODS®?
- Peel back the lid (we leave one end attached so the tray can be reused for an unfinished pod).
- Pop the pod out of the tray.
- Hold the pod in your hand, curve in your palm to apply some heat (if your hands are cold you’re going to want to warm them up before you get started).
- Move the pod back-and-forth and feel the plant butters melt in your hand (think of a pod like butter on toast).
- Apply where you want it with your hand or rub the pod directly on the skin.
- For a faster melt, peel back the lid and place the tray curve down in the microwave (15 seconds will start to soften a pod and 1 minute will create a liquid that’s fabulous for massage).
- Place an unfinished pod back in the tray, ready for next time (think of a pod like a bar of soap).

How can a lube be solid?
PLEASURE PODS® are made from plant butters that are solid at room temperature. Activated by your body heat (or any other heat source), they are formulated to melt easily at body temperature, turning into a silky-smooth liquid lubricant.
Why did you create PLEASURE PODS® ?
We were done with liquids and wanted a natural lube that was ideal for partner, solo, and toy play. We wanted something that didn’t run, cause a mess, or stain the sheets, and actually enhanced pleasure.

What’s the difference between water-based, silicone, oils, and PLEASURE PODS®?
Water-based lubes feel sticky and need to be reapplied frequently because they dry quickly. Silicone and oils don’t get sticky, but like all liquids they start out feeling wet and as they run away need to be reapplied to maintain a slippery glide. PLEASURE PODS® contain no water to dry out and get sticky, and don’t run away. When applied, you’re creating a protective barrier on the surface of your skin that stays where you put it and keeps you feeling lubricated, not wet or sticky.
What are the ingredients used to make PLEASURE PODS®?
Our product is made from 6 all-natural ingredients: Mango, Cocoa, Kokum, Olive, Argan, and Rosemary.
Do PLEASURE PODS® cause itching or burning sensations?
No. Each of our plant butters and oils has been selected for its lubricating, nourishing, and non-reactive qualities. PLEASURE PODS® contain no water meaning no preservatives, or additives are needed to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, or yeast, and they won’t affect your body’s natural pH or osmolality balance, which are the main causes of itching or burning.
Do PLEASURE PODS® contain additives, preservatives, chemicals, petrochemicals, parabens, silicone, glycerin, or gluten?
No. Absolutely not.
Are PLEASURE PODS® good for my skin?
Yes. They’re hydrating, moisturizing, nourishing, soothing, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory. Rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, Omega-3, Omega-6, and Vitamins A, B6, C, D2, E, and K, they create a protective barrier that prevents skin from drying, supports collagen production, and leaves your skin looking and feeling fabulous.
Are PLEASURE PODS® scented?
No. The 6 natural plant ingredients create a very mild, subtle, pleasing aroma.
