Hello, and welcome to Margo’s.
My name is Christina and Margo’s is a new concept in women’s sexual wellbeing. Combining fun, information, friendliness and discretion, it will be unapologetically about helping women have the most enjoyable and fulfilling sex lives possible.
Margo’s is still at the design stage, but I am raising funds to make it a reality in cities across the country. If you want to know more, if you want to help, and if you want to get involved, please read on.
Why Margo’s ?
There may be all sorts of reasons why some women don’t have the sex lives they want. The consequences however are not just physical. For some women, it affects their self-esteem, their relationships and their moods. This can have further consequences on their mental health and well-being. I have seen this first hand with women I met whilst undergoing breast cancer treatment. It was the lack of any support across the NHS and my GP’s advice that I should ‘lie back and think of England’ that made me realise how little is available to meet women’s needs. And so, Margo’s was born.
My mission is to help women enjoy fulfilling sex lives. Margo’s will do this by providing a welcoming retail experience that is sophisticated yet comfortable, informative yet enjoyable, professional yet intimate. As well as retail and information, Margo’s will work with specialists to offer workshops and activities covering a wide range of topics such as: sex for women post menopause or post childbirth, yoga therapy, couples’ sex therapy.
Who will Margo’s be for?
Margo’s will be for all women over the age of 16 through to 106 who want to improve or enhance their enjoyment of sex. There are many reasons why women might want better sex. They might be grappling with specific physical barriers to sex, such as dealing with the effects of the menopause or a specific medical issue. They may be at an early stage in their sex lives and want to find out more. Or they may simply want to take the first steps to becoming more adventurous.
What Makes Margo’s Different?
Margo’s is a women’s store. The environment, the atmosphere will be one in which the usual marketing (think scantily clad women and explicit imagery) will have no place. There are stores like that now and Margo’s will not compete with them. Margo’s will look and feel different: more of a friendly couture salon. Men may use the shop but only if accompanied by a woman or to attend specific themed events. Women will want to linger in Margo’s and we will help them do this by providing discreet seating to share concerns, seek advice and explore ideas whether alone or with someone else. You might be offered a coffee or tea whilst you browse. In short, you might describe Margo’s as an entry-level sex shop for those wishing to improve or discover their sex lives in a relaxing, safe and inclusive environment.
Can I visit Margo’s?
You can once Margo’s is live. At the moment we are still at the planning stage whilst we secure the money needed to operate. See our About page for more information. You can spread the word and share the website on social media. And please do complete our market research survey and encourage others to do so too. The more we know about what women want, the better Margo’s can help.
