Each month members will receive coded access to a new ‘Salacious Journal’, a peep show, a section of our serialised graphic novel and hints and tips to increase desire and sensuality. Our target market will be 30+ busy professional women with an open and ethical outlook on life who wants to use the product to improve relationships or reconnect with their sexuality and sense of personal empowerment.
