As far as ancient practices go, feng shui is pretty popular when it comes to helping us determine the layout of our furniture, who we should date, or even what kind of pet we should get.
But now Feng Shui can even help bring positive energy to your sex life, according to Hong Kong feng shui interior designer Thierry Chow and couple-focused sex toy brand We-Vibe.
Having sex toys in the home can still come with stigma, but Chow believes they can be combined with feng shui principles to attract better energy, as well as de-stigmatize both subjects.
“Pleasure can be a big taboo in Asia, seldom discussed openly. Feng shui is sometimes considered ‘superstitious’. Even if it has helped us live better lives throughout thousands of years. I want to defend both as important wellness components of our lives, and send a message to Asia and beyond, that Self-Pleasure is not shameful,” says Chow. “When combined with feng shui principles, owning sex toys can help us build better energy with our partners in our living spaces”.
According to Sara Tang, Hong Kong-based sex therapist, “Feng Shui can be a very important vehicle to transmit in Asia and beyond a very clear message from a sexual wellness perspective: self-pleasure is not only an acceptable form of wellness, but also very much part of our lives and we should speak as normally about it as we do about other things such as feng shui. This is really relevant in our fast-paced lives of the 21st century”.
