When It Comes to Advertising Sexual Satisfaction, Mars Is Accepted and Venus Isn’t

Posted 10:21 am, May 18th, 2010

by Rosann

Rachel Braun Scherl talks with Jim Blasingame, host of The Small Business Advocate, about the challenges of running a small business that focuses on female sexual satisfaction. In addition to the challenges common to all small businesses, Scherl and Blasingame discuss the unique challenges Semprae faces, and site examples of double standards between male and female sexual enhancement and satisfaction products. Scherl also points out that even though Zestra is effective for so many women, the traditional “conversationalists” tend to shy away from telling their friends. Since most women have some type of social relationship with their friend’s partner (i.e., you all go out to dinner together) and vice versa, sharing information about a product like Zestra can feel like a betrayal to their partners. Scherl noted that she and her team are working to open up the conversation and show women that this is something that should be embraced – a difficult task with the established double standards.

Have you your sexual satisfaction? Pioneers! O Pioneers!

Posted 11:43 am, April 26th, 2010

Although we often identify with the likes of  Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda, one our favorite Sex and the City characters is Bunny McDougall (Trey’s mother). It’s not so much for what she says, but rather for what we imagine she would say in her eyebrow-raising voice. She’s a Zestra woman at heart (even though she might not let it on) and, well, Frances Sternhagen’s portrayal of her just makes us laugh.

Recently, we came across an article that would certainly warrant a classic comment from Bunny – it turns out, Victorian women liked sex (rock on tea-drinking sisters). In the spring issue of its alumni magazine, Stanford University is featuring Clelis Mosher, “The Sex Scholar.” Clelis was an unrecognized pioneer in the field of women’s sexual health, and it was her ground-breaking research that uncovered this information about Victorian women. Although the data from Clelis’s surveys was never published, her studies were unearthed by Stanford historian Carl Degler in 1973. In one study, many of the forty-five women surveyed reported that they experienced desire, orgasm and engaged in sexual activity because of the pleasure derived from it…corsets, petticoats and all. What’s more is that Victorian women had sex frequently (even by today’s standards) – about three-quarters of the women engaged in sex at least once a week. Hmm…just think what they could have done with a little Zestra tucked away in their purses.

At Semprae, we’d like to pay homage to Clelis Mosher and her contribution to the field of women’s sexual health, by making her an honorary member of our board. Of course, we hope Bunny would also give Clelis a proper congratulations. For more information about Clelis, see the Stanford Magazine article.

The 6 Sex Toys and Accessories Every Woman Needs…Includes Zestra!

Posted 2:22 pm, April 21st, 2010

by Karen

In Betty Confidential’s The 6 Sex Toys and Accessories Every Woman Needs article, Zestra is touted as an AROUSAL BOOSTER that’s natural and hormone-free! 

“Whether solo or with a partner, we all need a little help sometimes. Other times, well maybe we just want to kick things up a notch. The good news is that suddenly, there are plenty of products on the market designed to enhance a woman’s pleasure – including several that are natural and/or hormone-free. One that caught our eye: Zestra (box of 12 packets, $49.95), which was specifically developed to “improve arousal, desire and satisfaction” for women. Applied topically, this blend of essential oils and extracts claims to increase sensitivity in minutes – and the effects can last for up to 45 minutes.”

Zestra is Parenting Mom Tested to Heat Things Up

Posted 4:02 pm, April 19th, 2010

by Rosann

Lately, a lot of moms have started to take notice of Zestra. And, we couldn’t be more excited that with their laundry list of to-dos, moms are making the time to say, “Hey, we like sex too.” More importantly, they’re starting to put in the hours (okay, maybe minutes but who’s counting). Parenting Magazine even had one of their mom testers (Jane, ME) take Zestra for a test drive – destination ZestraRush. Jane commented, “That warm rush made me jump my husband – it had been a while!”

Zestra_ParentingMomTestedJane, we’re glad to help put a little bounce in your step and hope you know you’re not alone. From our conversation with theSkinnyScoop last week, we learned that 100% of moms who entered our survey would like to have more sex this year or be more adventurous with sex. So, the desire is there, but for whatever reason…kids, chores, work, and stress in general…sometimes sex gets pushed to the bottom of the list. Thus, we thought it was only fitting to share the Zestra review by Kim of Chubby Cheeks Thinks, a TwitterMoms community member who found that Zestra HELPED HER GET IN THE MOOD QUICKLY with kids, to-do list and all. To read her review as well as others from the fabulous TwitterMoms community, please visit the Product Reviews section of our blog.

And, don’t forget that Mother’s Day is May 9th – every mom deserves to enjoy her special day and feel fireworks on her special night.
