How to Beat the Winter Blues and Do Something Good for Cancer Research

Nature’s Winter Remedy

Yes, winter is upon us. And if the lack of daylight and colder temps give you a case of the doldrums, a proven healthy way to beat the blues is to have more sex. In fact, did you know that couples have more sex in winter than any other time of year? According to 20 years of birth data, mid-September is the most popular time to be born. Turns out, couples crave more cuddle time when the nights get long and cold. Plus, with the holidays and extra vacation time on the horizon, it’s a wonderful time to relax, be cozy and get frisky with your partner.

“It's the perfect opportunity to erase those winter blues and revive life in the bedroom!”

To help you turn up the heat, stock up on Coconu’s natural, gentle, and healthy 100% USDA Certified Organic lubricant—always a welcome gift. “Our formulas are made with organic coconut and other natural ingredients, like organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic sunflower oil, and organic shea butter, which means you’re not putting anything synthetic or toxic on or in your body,” said Sarah Belzer, Coconu president. “It's the perfect opportunity to erase those winter blues and revive life in the bedroom!”

Coconu’s New Give Back Campaign Helps the Fight Against Ovarian Cancer

In addition to warming your winter bedroom, the Coconu founders just launched a new campaign, giving back to a cause close to their hearts. “We’re partnering with the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) to help women in the fight against this awful disease,” said Sarah. “Our mother, and our children’s grandmother, Kathy Warnick passed away from ovarian cancer when she was only 58 years old. This came just one year after her diagnosis, even though she was committed to living a healthy lifestyle and worked in the medical field. It has forever impacted our lives and we want to do all we can to raise awareness and fund research to find a cure so that other people don’t have to go through this experience.”

“Coconu chooses to give back by donating 10% of all purchases of our organic coconut lubricants to OCRA.”

For every purchase of Coconu’s organic coconut lubricant, Coconu will donate 10% to OCRA, in honor of Kathy. Right now, the number of women being diagnosed with ovarian cancer is high: one in 79 women in their lifetime. And due to a lack of early symptoms or detection screenings, these diagnoses occur too late—when the disease is advanced. For this reason, it’s called the "silent killer" and is the fifth deadliest form of cancer for women. “We believe the way to make progress against ovarian cancer is through supporting research in this area,” said Sarah.
