Hi! I am Sachee. I have PCOS (15 years and counting) and trust me that stuff is hard. Excessive hair growth in places that aren’t considered ‘normal’ for a woman, being a big girl, bullying, painful periods and painful fex, I’ve been through it all. After speaking to a gazillion (ok, maybe fewer) huha-owners about these shared health and hygiene experiences (and obviously covering all my bases with a crazy amount of research), I wanted to change things.
I learnt that a lot of women find it confusing and embarrassing to talk about our huha’s health and hygiene issues. This really gets my goat, because I want us to own it! I want us to have periods without shame, enjoy fex, not hide our body hair, period products, undies, fex products and normalise all conversations around it.
Our bodies deserve some TLC, folks! So, no more popping pills in secret for your PMS, suffering period cramps in silence, no more using nasty personal lubricants that feel itchy, icky and not-so-pleasurable or are just meant to please (cis)men-folk (ref: BJs), no more neglecting your hair and skin down there. Let’s get curious and proactive about our huha’s health together, and have fun while we're at it!
Sisterhood above all
One sultry afternoon in Goa, I got talking about my vision with my sis and advisor Rukun. We spoke about our respective journeys and it was only after downing many coconut waters together, I realised when it came to our bodies, we shared similar notions and emotions on many fronts (quite literally). From the get-go she has been an integral part of building sassy and our community.
We believe—to create change, we all need to come together, have honest and open conversations and celebrate each other.
