5 minutes that changed Jo Divine

Did you see our co-founder Samantha on “Sex, Myths and the Menopause” with Davina McCall on Channel 4?

This ground-breaking programme appeared on 12th May and will hopefully change the way that menopause is managed in the UK and even beyond these shores. It also shook Jo Divine as Samantha’s knowledge and enthusiasm for how great lubes and toys can improve people’s sex lives, obviously struck a chord, and we were deluged with orders.

We felt that we had properly prepared and possibly even over-ordered on the SONA 2 that featured in the programme. Little did we know that we’d sell out in 30 minutes and even the huge shipment we had express freighted the day after would be nowhere near enough. Nor the next shipment either!

We’d like to thank customers for their patience over the past couple of weeks. Six months of orders came in, during the first five days after the programme aired, and our packing team had made an incredible effort. We made a few mistakes, but we cheerfully put them right. But we have been so pleasantly surprised at people’s patience for products. We are a business that likes to ship same-day, so it is very hard if our standards slip, even in such extreme circumstances.

We are mostly back to normal and apart from orders waiting for the SONA 2, we are shipping in 1-2 days again. There are multiple deliveries for the SONA 2 coming in, so we hope to clear all backorders in the next few days.

We’d like to welcome our many new newsletter subscribers. We hope you enjoy this newsletter – we offer much more than most other companies in our newsletters. There will be, of course, new products and special offers, but we also have great new original blog articles from a wonderful team of authors.

In this newsletter we have an offer on the LELO SONA 2 (ending tomorrow!), Samantha’s blog post all about Sex, Myths and the Menopause, plus the next instalment in Eleni’s BDSM series, all about the misconceptions about BDSM.

Sex, Myths and the Menopause

Sex, Myths and the Menopause

“Sex, Myths and the Menopause”, presented by Davina McCall, aired on 12th May on Channel 4.

Having had a preview of the programme, we knew the impact would be huge, and although many of the personal stories were quite harrowing, the programme ended on an upbeat note and the coverage was very positive afterward.

The Menopause Charity, which was announced a couple of days later and for which Davina is a campaigning ambassador and which Samantha is helping in regards all things sex, is providing free of charge training to GPs and thousands of healthcare professionals have already signed up to take advantage of this programme.

If you haven’t seen the programme, head on over to All 4 or Channel4.com.
