Stylish accessories that double as sex toys? Genius! This jewelry collection was launched by East Coast company Unbound to empower women to be unapologetic about their sexuality. A group of girlfriends in New York City created the sexy and feel-good subscription box as an alternative to their own intimidating experiences shopping at sex stores. And their latest venture is The Unbound Collection, high-end jewelry pieces that you can wear out discreetly and straight to the bedroom.
"With the third wave of feminism in full force, we believe that women want to wear their values on their sleeve — sexuality included," said Polly Rodriguez, cofounder and CEO of Unbound.
At first glance, nobody would suspect that you were sporting anything more than a gorgeous accessory. Only the wearer would know that the stackable bangles are actually chained handcuffs and that the leather choker can be unhooked to be used as a whip.
"We believe that sexuality should be more fluid, embedded throughout everyday lives," Polly said. "To us, it was strange that women who wanted to try handcuffs, whips, or any type of BDSM product had to keep it hidden in their bags. Truly beautiful jewelry with a secret sexual function empowers the woman wearing it — it's for her to know and share with whomever she chooses."
In line with the company's modern feminist ideals, the collection was inspired by a trio of prominent women in history: Egyptian pharaoh Cleopatra, British cultural icon Twiggy, and aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart. These three were bold and influential risk-takers and totally badass.
