Emma Waston Subscribes To This Sexy Website—Here’s Why
On Wednesday night, at a sold-out talk with feminist icon Gloria Steinem hosted by the How To Academy in London, Emma Watson made a surprising revelation: she's got a pricey subscription to a sexy website. The 25-year-old is a user of OMGYES.com, a research-based site that aims to help users become better in bed by focusing on female pleasure.
OMGYES uses findings from unprecedented research on women's sexual pleasure to help subscribers get better in bed. About half of its users are women, and half are men. As a rep for the site explained to the New York Daily News, “Scientists had never researched actual techniques for pleasure because it's so taboo. We got $4.6 million in funding and are doing that research. Instead of just making academic journal articles, we're making the findings practical, real, and experiential in the form of documentary interviews—both explicit and non-explicit—with real-life women, not actresses.” Um, yes please! The site also includes a "touchable video" feature, so users can try out the new techniques they learned and receive real-time feedback to hone their ~sexy skills~.
Watson said onstage with Steinem that she heard about the site from a friend. "I wish it had been around longer," Watson shared. "Definitely check it out. It's an expensive subscription but it's worth it." The current subscription rate is a one-time $29 payment, but that appears to be a markdown from a regular price of $59—if the site actually delivers on its many pleasurable promises, that may be a very worthy investment.
In addition to the sexy talk, Steinem and Watson's onstage discussion also featured some other lovely conversational gems (with two greats like Watson and Steinem onstage together, we wouldn't expect anything less.) For starters, fans learned that even the most successful celebrities grow up with insecurities just like everyone else, as Watson admitted that she hated her eyebrows as a kid.
"I used to hate that I had strong eyebrows," she shared. "As a nine-year-old I desperately wanted to pluck them and make them two thin lines. My mother desperately tried to tell me that they gave my face character, don't be ashamed." If only her nine-year-old self could have known that just a few years later, the beauty world would grow to covet beautiful, bold brows just like hers.
Steinem agreed that women should feel free to embrace their bodies however they look. “Our bodies are instruments not ornaments," she said to the audience. “We should celebrate our different shapes and sizes, our caesarean scars and all the other beautiful imperfections that make us who we are. I hope every woman in this room goes home tonight, looks in the mirror and says, ‘Yes, this is fan-fucking-tastic!'”
In short, Watson and Steinem reminded us on Wednesday that women have every right to embrace their bodies, whether that means exploring their sexual pleasure or simply loving their outside appearance exactly the way it is. Thanks for the wisdom, ladies!
