Adamandeve.com Launches “Self Love Hub” For Happiness In and Out of the Bedroom

In this age of selfies and body shaming, it’s challenging to focus on genuine self love, or truly appreciating and knowing one’s own self. For this reason, Adam & Eve, America’s most trusted source for adult products, has created its Self Love Hub to help individuals learn more about the importance of loving oneself, and to provide a number of suggestions, exercises and affirmations in support of personal enlightenment.

Inside Adam & Eve’s Self Love Hub

  • Self Love Guide – this provides a general overview and affirmations to improve self esteem and help rid oneself of negative thoughts.
  • Personality Test – a quick series of 20 questions that, once answered, reveal relationship traits and suggestions on how to make the most of those unique traits.
  • Self Love Mirror – highlights fun and exciting exercises to change up normal routines and develop a new appreciation for individuality.
Adam & Eve Launches "Self Love Hub" for Happiness In and Out of the Bedroom!

Because self love encompasses much more than sex and sexuality, adamandeve.com delved deeper into the psychology behind the romantic choices we make with its Self Love Hub.  “Self love should be our first love… our best love. It’s the foundation of true happiness and any successful relationships, ” says Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexologist at adamandeve.com and licensed therapist. “It’s a shame so many people focus on their perceived flaws instead of celebrating them as traits that make them unique.”

Adam & Eve’s Self Love Hub goes far beyond the definition of self love, or the appreciation of the personal growth you achieve from taking care of your needs – psychologically, physically, and spiritually – and gives individuals actionable steps to achieve a higher degree of self love. When these steps are thoughtfully completed, there is a higher probability this will translate into more successful relationships with others and a higher level of overall self care.

Adam & Eve stores provide a safe, friendly environment for women, men and couples to explore romance and erotica. With everything from lingerie to bachelor and bachelorette gifts to instructional manuals and toys & games designed specifically to re-ignite the spark, Adam & Eve stores has something for the sensualists in everyone. Adam & Eve maintains the integrity that its customers have come to expect over the years.
