WAANDS™ was founded at the end of 2020 with the intention of expanding upon the impact of Courtney's first business, The Empowered Woman. The WAANDS™ vision is based upon offering the same high quality Crystal Pleasure Products found in The Empowered Woman shop through a luxury brand that is more inclusive & accessible to all.
From a young age, I had a longing to experience the full expression & enjoyment of my sexuality. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to celebrations of sexuality, especially through dance!
Sex has always felt innately spiritual & meaningful to me. This feeling led me to consciously pursue my own sexual empowerment & awakening as early as my teenage years.
I first explored this through promiscuity, pursuing my pleasure without remorse, & being “that friend” who proudly bought all my girlfriends their first vibrator.
I went on to spend years exploring in the fields of sacred sexuality, personal development, holistic health, and spirituality - meanwhile completing a Psychology Degree and a Masters Degree in Coaching.
I first began sharing my journey & insights by hosting Women’s Circles, blogging, and coaching at the start of 2015.
During those initial years, I placed strong emphasis on exploring self-pleasure, especially with the Crystal Pleasure Products that we now offer in the shop today.
Crystal Pleasure Wands to me, have always symbolized sexual celebration and acted as a permission slip…
Permission to enjoy & express my sexuality to the fullest extent. To be seen & valued for what my sexuality brings to this world - by first seeing & valuing it myself.
In early 2018, I expanded my reach through the creation of an online course designed to provide women with the foundational tools to connect to their pussy.
This constituted the formal launch of The Empowered Woman platform to expand my mission and support the sexual & spiritual awakening of women world-wide.
Since then, I have been privileged to influence thousands through my writing, teachings, & products - while always continuing to dive deeper into the work myself.
I am excited & honoured to share WAANDS™ with you, and hope that our products offer you the same profound pleasure & transformation that they've provided me.
