What is the link between sex toys and Feng Shui? Seemingly none but Feng Shui interior designer Thierry Chow from Hong Kong is de-stigmatising self-pleasure in Asia by celebrating Feng Shui principles attached to modern day sex toys.
For one, Feng Shui offers a variety of insights intended to attract positive energy into our lives and homes. Partnering with couple-focused brand We-Vibe, Thierry shows how sex toys in our home can be combined with Feng Shui principles to attract better energy into our lives and therefore, debunk myths about Pleasure and Feng Shui.
As Thierry puts it, “Both topics, pleasure and Feng Shui, do share a certain stigma. 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, and send a message to Asia and beyond, that self-pleasure is not shameful. When combined with Feng Shui principles, owning sex toys can help us build better energy with our partners in our living spaces.”
Using the 5-element feng shui system; including earth, metal, water, wood and fire coming from Taoism, Thierry wants people to embark on a journey of self-discovery with the help of We-Vibe products by engaging the Feng Shui concept of bridging external and internal energies.
Feng Shui & Sex Toys: The Basic Principle
The idea is that an external object, in this case a We-Vibe Sex Toy, improves our internal energy through the mental health benefits that masturbation provides, and therefore our sense of well-being. In her tips, apart from rating the Feng Shui value of the external qualities in We-Vibe products such as primary colors and organic shapes, Thierry also uses the bagua, or the “energy map” used by Feng Shui masters, to explain which “directions” or places in our homes can best fit We-Vibe sex toys storage or use in order to foster energy exchange, love and intimacy.
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.”
Thierry Chow’s 4 tips to boost good Feng Shui at home with Sex Toys
1. Wood in Feng Shui is related to growth, healing, and vitality. It is represented with colors like green, blue and teal. Adding a We-Vibe Touch X in Green Velvet to your bedside table or bedroom furniture will boost shared growth for you and your partner. Touch X is a magical multitasker: a waterproof vibrator designed to fit and stimulate every part of the human body. The east location in your home is dedicated to personal development and social luck, the best spot of your house to use Touch X and explore personal growth.
2. Fire in Feng Shui represents passion, inspiration, and visibility. It is often related to red and bright orange. In that sense, Tango X in Cherry Red will auspiciously invigorate sexual desire. Have it (or use it!) in your kitchen, a fiery place of your home, to further boost its energy. Tango X is a well-known bullet vibrator with serene, deep, and rumbly vibrations that will hit one’s sweet spot with ease and power. Use it in the northeast direction of your home, as Feng Shui says star no. 9 in 2021 represents romance. Using a toy with the colour of passion there will boost romance this year!
3. Water represents wisdom, as well as the emotional connection to others and the world around us, symbolising better energy flow. It is connected with wavy shapes, which brings the best of We-Vibe’s Chorus in Blue. This 100% waterproof and most famous toy by We-Vibe is worn during intercourse so that both partners can enjoy rumbly feelings at the same time. Its Squeezable Remote designed with the most natural human response in mind – the tighter you squeeze, the stronger the vibration gets.
4. Last but not least, if you’re looking for stronger alternatives to activate the romantic boost of the north-east corner of your space, We-Vibe Nova 2 in Purple can provide the ultimate pleasure journey, either solo or shared, through its adjustable G-spot and external stimulator, let its purple provide a calm but still romantic energy to your life.
Kaiyah and Antony, Hong Kong residents, big fans and consistent users of the We-Vibe products mention, “To us, sex toys and Feng Shui share the same values. If you put your trust in them and feel them with your heart, you can experience ultimate comfort. To do so, one must explore with an open mind in order to opening that door. Being vulnerable to both Feng Shui and Pleasure subjects will allow you to feel the most.”
We-Vibe and Thierry will continue their work to further promote the health benefits of self-pleasure. Like feng shui, sexual pleasure should not be seen as a taboo, but as a way of understanding oneself while acting on the interior and exterior energies around us, helping us become fluid, healthy, and positive individuals.
