🌹 LVRSNFRNDS Stories
Previously at LVRSNFRNDS.
Last Friday, I called Amy who told me how she found out that a porno was filmed at her local sausage station. This one is dedicated to our currywurst lvrs in Berlin!
📽 Cinéma cinéma
Because that’ll make a great convo starter.
Courtesy of our Film Lvrs group, this Thursday we’re watching Moonlight (2016) directed by Barry Jenkins. Highly recommended by the team!

I can’t stop thinking about this...
Style & design - Have you heard of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina-scented candle? Well it made the news recently not because of its vagina-scent but because it exploded into flames “causing an ‘inferno’ into a woman’s living room”… OK that is a lot of information to take in. I’ll just leave it here. Oh and if you cannot even consider this story before understanding why this candle even exists in the first place, try this.
My best wishes for meaningful connections! Please send scented candles, intersectional feminist books and your questions on intimacy and relationships to firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp us!
