Dr. Soum Rakshit is the Co-Founder & CEO of award-winning sexual health company, MysteryVibe. Their mission is to make sexual health accessible to all – across all ages, genders & orientations. In his role as CEO of MysteryVibe, he focuses on pushing the boundaries on R&D, customer experience and supporting their long-term goal of making sexual health an integral part of our overall health.
On this week’s show, Soum talks to me about transitioning from working in defense in biometrics to sex toys. Both involve talking to doctors, he’s just now in a different part of the body. We discuss how sexual health can contribute to overall wellness, particularly after major life changes like birth of a child, menopause, major surgery or other events. We spend some time talking about how even though his ostensible business is sex toys, he doesn’t get to talk about sex as often as he might like because he’s, y’know, running a business. Most importantly, we talk about how a little fun, a little mystery, and a little exploration can invigorate and fortify a relationship.
WARNING: THIS IS A FRANK DISCUSSION ABOUT SEX, AND YOU WILL HEAR EXPLICIT WORDS AND CONCEPTS. GIRD YOUR LOINS AND EARS APPROPRIATELY.
Soum is is an incredible professional who mixes science, deep humanity, and good humor to create incredible products that he discusses with energy, passion, and joy. You’ll love it.
