This Crystal Dildo Balances Your Chakras

Meet Vanessa Cuccia. She’s the owner and creator of Chakrubs, a company that makes sex toys from 100% pure crystal, promising a sense of sacredness to your playtime. 

Vanessa became my official sex guru during our interview, instructing me to direct all of my sexual attention to fulfilling my wealth, creativity, and ambition. “I believe, for you, these are characteristics of your true self,” she told me. Go further inside our conversation to see Vanessa’s goddess-like approach to sex and self-love, below.

Melissa Henderson: What prompted you to combine crystals with sex toys? 

Vanessa Cuccia: When you hold a crystal near you, it facilitates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. We can combine these crystals with our own sexual energy — it enhances pleasure and allows us to open ourselves up to healing in the most pleasurable way. People who have experienced sexual trauma have that negative energy stuck in their bodies, so this [practice] is about releasing and letting that energy flow through your chakras.

MH: What’s this toy?

VC: This is the “Rabbit Jade.”

MH: Did you name this?

VC: That is the actual name of the crystal. Rabbit Jade is known for calming, soothing, serenity, and bringing peaceful endings to what no longer serves us. It’s associated with the crown and heart chakra. When you’re using it, you can set an intention to calm your mind of worry, fear, and to let yourself surrender to the moment.

MH: Does each sex toy vary in meaning?

VC: Yes, each one contains various metaphysical properties and chakras.

MH: What do Chakrubs symbolize to you?

VC: Chakrubs, to me, are symbols of self-realization, manifestation, as well as emotional and sexual independence. The idea sprung from a desire to cultivate these things into my life. It was 2011, and I had been hosting a dedicated spiritualist in my home who was studying crystals and energetic systems. I was also working at The Pleasure Chest, which is a really sex-positive atmosphere. When the idea occurred to me, I went forward with it because I felt it could help me become more liberated. The more I spoke about it, the more it made sense. Conversations illuminated the need for an infusion of love, not only in the sex toy industry, but in our daily lives.

MH: How has your philosophy changed since you started having those initial conversations?

VC: The philosophy behind Chakrubs is to gain perspective on what it means to self-love. Masturbation is really just a metaphor for this principal. We set our intentions with the crystal, whether it be to release stagnant energy or to open our hearts. And every time we become aroused, that arousal becomes a signal to remind ourselves of that intention.

MH: Battery-powered sex toys freak me out because it’s electric and you’re using it on a sacred part of your body that you can’t necessarily replace.

VC: I hear from a lot of women that they have desensitized themselves so much that they find it difficult to feel pleasure from a human being. That vibration is not a natural sensation. But I’m not against any form of sexual exploration, as long as it doesn’t harm you or someone else.

MH: When you go to buy a product like this, do you have to have your chakra read?

VC: It’s not necessary. You can do it that way, but I always advise people to go with their intuition. What crystal is attracting you? What are you going to feel good using? Crystals can be programmed with our intentions, so whichever one you choose will be beneficial.

MH: What’s your favorite?

VC: Black Onyx. It’s a protection stone. It’s good for period cramps. It’s an intense stone because it may conjure up energy from the past that has been repressed. I’ve had my Black Onyx since I started. I feel so bonded to that one. I am still on my journey. I am still understanding the things that are preventing me from letting go.

MH: I always hear about women who’ve never experienced an orgasm or who’ve been through abusive relationships, and I wonder how that affects them during sex.

VC: Yes, those are the people I really want to reach. I have many customers who’ve expressed to me that they are wanting to heal themselves from past abuse with the help of Chakrubs. It’s a humbling experience to hear that from people.

MH: What crystal would you use for a breakup?

VC: The Clear Quartz. It’s for clarity. It’s good for understanding, in the cosmic sense, why things went down the way they went down. Do you see the rainbows in it?

MH: So pretty! And wow… I’d love to understand why things went down the way they went down!

VC: You just need to set your intention by doing what’s best for you. So, if your intention is to “open my heart to receive the kind of love that I know is true and right for me,” then every time you masturbate you’re reminding yourself of that intention. Your arousal becomes a signal to remind yourself of the love that you deserve.
