I was mindlessly swiping through Instagram stories one day when I got an ad that was a little unusual. Among my normal advertisements pandering towards clothing and jewelry was this graphic advertising “sexual wellness for women”. What? Is that something that money can buy?
I clicked the ad and was taken to the free download page for “Rosy- Women’s Sexual Health” on the App Store. According to their website, Rosy is “designed by doctors and psychologists for the 43% of women who have sexual problems and questions. Rosy is the first-of-its-kind platform offering women a holistic approach to sexual health and wellness”. As someone who is passionate about women’s health and wellness (and a woman myself), of course I had to try it.
Rosy’s free offerings include videos and articles about a wide range of women’s issues, including libido, mental health, pelvic floor exercises, trans women’s health, and many, many more. For topics as wide as date night tips to as specific as niche sexual disorders, Rosy has free education for everybody. They also offer free recorded classes about these various topics and a community blog where they can be discussed anonymously with other women.
Personally I think that all of Rosy’s best offerings are free, but there are even more features that are up for purchase on the app. Their paid subscription gives you access to a library of romantic and erotic short stories and additional class offerings.
With or without a subscription, Rosy also offers group and individual coaching sessions. Group sessions are designated specific topics, such as “partner problems”, or “get out of your head” and cost $20.00 for an hour-long session with a certified doctor and coach.
If you want one-on-one time with a qualified coach, you can purchase their “personal sex coaching” package, which costs $200.00 and gets you four 15-minute sessions with the app’s signature coach, Dr. Sonia Wright. These sessions are done over Zoom but are kept confidential, with your choice of having your camera on or not.
Opening Rosy for the first time was an emotional experience. It was a blend of surprise, excitement, and relief that there was finally a free, extensive platform for women’s health issues; a one-stop-shop where women can get their questions answered.
Rosy normalizes women’s struggles, provides relevant information and statistics, and fosters a sense of community between women who face the same trials with their sexual health.
As it grows, I can’t wait to see it flourish and continue to improve women’s lives. I know it improved mine.
