Here's How To Release Body Stress For A Good Night January 21, 2019
Men and women alike tend to hold stress in all parts of their body that often get in the way of a healthy, productive day. Of course, sex is known as a helpful tactic to alleviate that stress, but if you've ever experienced a passionate night of tight hips, then you know it doesn't always help.
Here are some tips -- not just for sex, but for an overall great night or morning -- to release that tension in your body for overall greater body health.
First thing's first: be aware.
Most people hold tension in their jaw, brows, neck, shoulders, and hips. Just the simple knowledge of this fact can help you in alleviating this habit. For instance, now that you know this, take a minute and listen to your body. Pay attention to each of these separate parts. Did you find tense shoulders? A clenched jaw? Knitted brow? Stiff neck, shoulder, or hips? Probably.
Here's what you can do:
For the jaw: Open and close your mouth. As wide as possible. For as long as possible for each opening. Yawn to stretch it wider. If you feel like a complete idiot doing this, try a quick session of Lion's Breath with Adriene so that you feel less alone.
For the brows: You can start with "the great rub," where you "place the index and middle fingers of both hands in the middle of your forehead." The goal is to hit the pressure point. Secondly, you can try the eyebrow method: "inhale deeply while closing and squinting your eyes tightly, and then exhale while you release the tension and open your eyes." Do this 3-4 times. Feel the difference?
For the neck: If you're someone who works or just functions on a computer and/or phone daily, you may find that neck tension comes around more often than you realize. Start with a gentle neck roll, rolling your head from side to side, up and down, then eventually 'round and 'round. Gently. No fast moves. Keep it nice and slow. Shoutout to Usher.
For the shoulders: Fun fact, according to Psychology Today: the trapezoid muscles that hold up your neck weighs 10 pounds! Try to relieve this stress by inhaling and lifting your shoulders up to your ears. Hold this as long as possible. When you exhale, your shoulders should go back down with the blades moving towards each other for a good stretch. Finally, back to a relaxed state. Repeat these 2-3 times.
For the hips: Many yoga practitioners have reported that the hips are the holding place of negative emotions. It's also been found to be connected to tension in the jaw, so if you're having issues, um.. opening up either... try both tips! One way, if you have the time: do a quick 5-10 minute session of meditation. Additionally or otherwise, you could also do physical relievers such as hip-opening yoga poses (Reclining Bound Angle, Thread the Needle Pose, Happy Baby Pose, Seated Twist, and Seated with Legs Extended). Dutty wines, twerks, and just general-range of motioning the hips around in a circle are great relievers, too. If you still feel like none of these are for you, or you're still not as loose as you'd like, take a quick google and find plenty of things you can do from using tennis balls to youtube tutorials.

A Word From Our Founder January 07, 2019To be completely transparent, I've struggled with what to say to greet you again. A friend asked me what it was that I've been afraid to say out loud. I’ll start there.
My Real Life 50 Shades of Grey Experience February 18, 2017Here is how our founder, Lidia Bonilla, describes her first professional submission training session.
Ask a Sexpert With King Noire - Fetish Trainer and Adult Entertainer February 05, 2016
In this week's Ask A Sexpert, we interviewed King Noire, an expert fetishist, intimacy coach, Erotic Touch Masseuse and porn star about the importance of his work and why he believes in breaking antiquated sexual taboos. We love getting a male perspective.
Plume: What sexual taboo would you like to see broken or lifted?
Plume: How do you define pleasure?
Plume: How do you define self-love and what do you do to provide self-love for yourself?
Ask (ME) The Sexpert, Lidia Bonilla - Chief Provocateur January 29, 2016
This week my team voted me the resident sexpert. Here's why I do what I do with Plume!
What sexual taboo would you like to see broken or lifted?
The assumption that if you talk about pleasure, sex toys or masturbation, you must be a freak. I want to disconnect the term ‘freak’ from sex.
How do you define pleasure?
What feels good. Children and animals don’t make this deep. It feels good, do it. If doesn’t, then don’t.
How do you define self-love and what do you do to provide self-love for yourself?
Self love is an action and not a concept. I provide self love anytime I do something for myself, not because I earned or deserved it. Just because I am. I practice self love when I get a massage because my body is sore, when I masturbate because I feel like it. Self love is walking out on bad dates. Self love is creating your dreams.
Ask a Sexpert, Featuring Sex Educator Ericka Hart January 22, 2016
Our fabulous sexpert of the week, Ericka Hart, youth sex educator and all-around powerful lady answers our questions about all things pleasurable!
Plume: As a sex educator, how soon do you think young people should be having conversations about sex?
EH: As early as they can speak. Children need to understand their bodies. "Head, shoulders, knees, and toes" is taught to two year olds. What if we said- "breasts, vagina, butt" too? We make sex/sexuality an adult thing and it's not. It's a part of us in the womb. These conversations need to be had to combat the idea that sex is wrong or secret. Having this conversation out in the open allows for more conversations and less discomfort. What sexual taboo would you like to see broken or lifted? I'm not sure if this is a taboo or more of a stigma, but I would love to see people stop shaming people for having STDs/STIs. Just about everyone has them. You will be ok. It's not the end of the world. You are not dirty if you have one. You can still have amazing sex with one or many.
Plume: How do you define pleasure?
EH: I define pleasure as something that makes you insanely happy but leans more on the arousal side of happy. How do you define self-love and what do you do to provide self-love for yourself? I define self love as feeding yourself power. An act that empowers you to conquer each day. I love singing and selfies! Great acts of self love!
Ask a Sexpert, Featuring Ms. Lana (If Your Nasty) January 17, 2016
Let's all join hands in welcoming one of our resident sexperts, Ms. Lana! Hailing from the island of Kingston, Jamaica and an NYC resident, Lana is a proud 69-year old retired registered nurse (“I should have gotten my masters in Sexology”) and self-proclaimed sexpert. She joins House of Plume in relishing in all things pleasurable and answers our question, what do you think women need to know about sexual pleasure?
Ms. Lana: For years women have been faking it. You can't fake it. Sometimes you need to tell men where they need to go. Sometimes you need to talk! I had no problem telling men where to go, I have to get mine too! My thing is that if I'm going to spend the time with you, then you need to make it worth my while.
I was a late bloomer and when I got started, I was a lioness. I came into my own. My first experience was with an older guy and he didn’t know what he was doing and I thought he did. It’s not what you have, it’s how you use it. I know this guy who had the longest penis I had ever seen, my ex-husband’s was shorter but it was fat and we had some good times. Then I had a Jewish guy who had a big one and knew how to use it. When you go out for a meal you talk about what kind of food you like and all those types of things, but people don't talk about sex and what they like - and this is so important. How is anyone going to know what you like if you don’t tell them or show them? You can always learn something from someone else. I had a friend who told me she always feels like she is peeing on herself when she is having sex and I said well then – that means you are having good sex!
Listen, I am here for the pleasures of life. I am a proud hedonist. I eat well, I drink well, I buy what I like. Otherwise, what’s the point?
Haayyyy from the Founder December 23, 2015
We changed our name from MUA Box. Too often we were confused with makeup and it just blurred our message. You were confused and we were confused why you were confused.
I started this company because sex toys needed a better place than my dresser drawer. I toiled at banks during the day to fund my dream. I thought I was taking an idea out of my head and into the world, but I was really designing my life. Dream by dream, action by action. Plume was born and so was my journey of living a pleasurable life.
Plume is about the pursuit of unapologetic, abundant pleasure while being comfortable in your own skin. Plume’s Playroom is a place for you to get the latest on sex and intimacy and my inner ramblings about things I am obsessed with. I wish you a life of asking for what you want and not giving any fucks about it.
