We got the ultimate girl power guide for you on the beach. After all it’s summer and who doesn’t want to lounge out, have a cocktail, and play a little beach volleyball. We know, at least in Chicago, the minute the temp is over 75 degrees everyone is on a beach. We pretty much camp out there/ live there 24/7 because soon it’ll be snowing here and all of us will want to die.
We’ve put together the best girl power guide to being a badass on the beach. Because after all it’s important to have the right tunes to fit the vibe, the best outfit, and the best book for fighting the patriarchy and learning about sexuality. P.S. Who doesn’t want the perfect waterproof toy to sneak on the beach with you ( No one duh) we’ve got you covered on all fronts, grrrl.
Girl Power Guide: Perf Beach Playlist
Girl Power Guide: Perf Swimsuit
If you’re looking for a new swimsuit to add to your collection, or are just bored with your current suit, look no further! We’ve got bikinis, one-pieces, high-waist styles and more to keep you stylin’ in the water.
We love the high-waisted sets because they are perfect for every beach body type. Try our Hawaiian Set and stand out on every overly-crowded beach in Chicago.
Maybe you are more into one pieces? We’ve got our frilly metallic lilac suit or our Mesh Pink Heart Suit to sweeten you up. We love these bad ass swimsuits because they totally double as bodysuits too.
Girl Power Guide: Books for smashing the patriarchy while sippin’ that Mai Tai
We love relaxing on the beach with a good book. Even on vacation, or on the North Avenue beach we are always living our mission of smashing the patriarchy and learning more about female sexuality. Check out our picks for the best books to relax at the beach with.
This book breaks down everything you’ve ever wanted to know about women’s sexuality and, more importantly, your own. If you’re feeling insecure about your sex life or unsure about your sexuality or are just plain curious how it all really works, then this book is for you. In this book, Dr. Emily Nagoski explains how everyone’s sexuality is unique and how factors such as stress, trust and body image affect our sex lives more than we think they do. Might as well learn a little (or a shit ton) about yourself while you’re relaxing on the beach and getting your tan on, right?
Want something a little more involved? Wanna get tipsy and a little crafty on the beach while smashing the patriarchy? Gemma Correll’s Feminist Activity Book is perfect for you. This book is full of fun exercises, from crossword puzzles to feminist bingo. You can even doodle your own condoms! Or learn about the waves of feminism while watching the waves from the sand! The possibilities are endless with this activity book, girlfriend, so grab some gel pens and get coloring.
“When it comes to sexuality, how do you define yourself in a culture hell-bent on doing it for you?” That’s a question posed by author Jaclyn Friedman in the blurb of this amazing book that teaches you to know exactly what you want and how to get it. This guide is empowering and thought-provoking and encourages you to get down to the nitty gritty of your inner self while teaching you how to navigate a hypersexualized culture that only sends mixed messages. If you’re sick of sex-shaming (and we know we are) and you’re down for an awakening read, this guide is the one for you.
Girl Power Guide: waterproof vibrators
Days at the beach are always a blast (especially if you’re like us and sneak wine into your travel mug), but who doesn’t want to take their beach day to the next level? Or maybe take a new vibrating friend with them into the backyard pool? Here are some 100% waterproof, completely submergible toys you can bring into the water with you!
Wish by We-Vibe
We’ve featured this toy before, and for good reason. It’s one of our absolute faves because it’s powerful as fuck and made with a really squishy silicone, so it’s nice and soft to grind on. It’s also perfectly palm-sized which makes it great for massages! Massage yourself or a friend or get a little naughty with the Wish on beach day, babe, you deserve some fun!
Our Finger Bunny vibe is the cutest beach companion we have to offer. It’s small, soft, and shaped exactly like a little bunny so no one will know you’re traveling with a toy! This vibe is so quiet no one will suspect a thing. If you want to be discreet but still want to be a little naughty, the Finger Bunny is a great option. This particular one is splash-proof, not submersible, but it’s great for a roll in the sand!
This mini version of the G-Vibe 2 makes for a great beach buddy! It has all the same features of the OG but it’s smaller so you can comfortably throw it in your beach bag. The shape allows for pressure on the G-spot while the other curved tip rests on the clitoris. We love this toy so much, we never leave the house without it.
Want something a little more partner-friendly? This powerful remote-control bullet is perfect for any couple looking to spice it up! It’s quiet and strong with 10 functions, promising endless options for a fun day in the sun. Just put in it your swim suit, hand over the remote and go for a swim!
Now that you’ve got your suit, some tunes, a book and a vibe, you’re ready for a bomb ass beach day! We’ll see you there, girlfriend <3
