Candice Smith, sex educator and founder of Tango (previously the Kink Kit) says that her desire to design a sex-based subscription arose from her own lack of sex education. “I grew up without sex education and didn’t have any healthy intimacy modeled for me in my family,” says Smith. “Even though I went to Harvard for sexuality studies, it didn’t translate to success in relationships. I didn’t know how to talk about sex, pleasure, or what I wanted, and ended up struggling for years in a sexless relationship.”
Intimacy research has found that couples who learn to talk about sex have better sex. “But the problem is that we aren’t taught how to keep intimacy healthy and passionate,” says Smith. “So I decided to create Tango to help start the intimate conversation and spark a playful passion for couples.” Other companies have done the same.
