Slutbox by Amber Rose is a monthly subscription for empowering women and showing off their fierce side to the world. You can get this box for $29.99 plus free shipping anywhere in the US. This subscription box contains unique items that are curated by Amber Rose to help make you feel good from the inside out.

The name of this box is designed to reclaim hateful language about women. You may disagree! You can read more about it on their site or see the page in the zine below that discusses the name of the box. And yes, to go ahead and answer your question – it gets delivered in the mail just like this.

FYI – if it wasn’t already clear, this is a box with adult language and themes and isn’t appropriate to read at work.

SlutBox by Amber Rose is an inclusive, feminist box, built each month to empower, uplift, and celebrate the fierceness of you (and give you all the tools you need to own your space and make your mark).

From beauty, fashion, body, and more, SlutBox is packed with essentials every SLUT needs to feel sexy, confident, and ready for anything. You want it? Oh, baby. We’ll give it to you good.

When you open the box, you will be treated to an amazing collage of illustrations that feature women.

The items are wrapped in pink tissue paper.

The first thing that you will see as you unwrap the contents is this zine from Slutbox.

Looking interesting!

There is more artwork at the bottom of the box!

The zine is packed with product information, as well as the things you need to know about the brands.

The first thing that you will see in this zine is the Slutboxmanifesto.

Amber Rose has given the word slut a different connotation here. This box is all about inclusivity, diversity, ending rape culture, and promoting health and sex in a positive light.

There’s a feature about all the items in the box. Photos and descriptions are included, as well as retail prices.

For some of the items, they even included tips on how to use them.

If you signed up on the first day, there are bonus items for you – a mini-mag and a discount card.

This is such an interesting spread! The zine shows off a list of “sluts” or women who made a difference or made her mark in “herstory.” I see Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Frida Kahlo, and even Beyonce just to name a few.

Horoscopes are out, Whoreoscopes are in.

This diagram is one of the best parts of the zine. It aims to educate the readers about consent and intimacy.

There’s a Slutbox GIF challenge, where you can answer the questions on the page then take a photo of it and post on your social media. The page next to it is all about Slutbox’s redefinition of the word slut.

Our new definition of “Slut” — A sexually liberated person who thumbs their nose at outdated Puritan standards of propriety, chastity, and docility. Synonyms: a badass bitch.

They even included a feature on how to give others a really nice compliment beyond what’s physical. You’ll never know how a single compliment can change someone’s day.

Do you want to be featured in Slutbox? You can email them and nominate someone you know or even yourself!

Each month, we want to highlight folx who are making #bossmoves, killing the game, and enacting change in their communities. Is this you or someone you know?

Last but not the least, there’s a spread that features various artworks relating to feminism and body positivity. These are the same artworks printed on the box so you will get to know the people behind them. Such an awesome idea!

At the back of the zine is the Amber Rose’s call to all fierce women.

Everything in the first box!

BONUS: Defense Divas Exclusive Discount Card. What better way to be more confident with yourself than learning self-defense? This discount card from Defense Divas can be used for purchasing self-defense products on their site.

You can get the code by scratching this off and entering it on the website. It’s redeemable until 2019.

BONUS: The Identity Of She Dear Body Magazine ($1.50) In line with Slutbox’s brand message, Dear Body Magazine is all about empowering women through body positivity.

The Identity of She is an equality blog and apparel company promoting self love and being who you want to be. We fight for diversity, intersectionality, and equal representation. Our goal is to redefine “man”kind once and for all.

This spread is all about self-love and body positive quotes that are chosen for their empowering message. They are all about learning to love who you are, the body you have, and not letting anyone tell you otherwise. What a great way to boost one’s confidence!

This feature is all about a woman’s belly. A lot of women have a tough time in making their belly flat as our current culture deems it more pleasing to the opposite sex but here, it’s all about accepting the presence of belly fat and loving yourself.

Another interesting article in the magazine is about making a pact with your body and getting to understand it better.

Sensuva Sizzle Lips Warming Edible Gel ($0.90) Want to make your partner blush to the roots of his or her hair? This edible gel will definitely make anyone hot. This small pack is enough for a little tumble in the bed. You can apply it on a small area of the body, blow on it, and your partner will get that hot sensation spreading in the area. Lick or kiss it off afterward for a more sensuous foreplay.

It’s paraben-free and made with body-safe ingredients.

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream ($6.48) Originating from Japan, this plant-based moisturizing cream is great to use from head to toe, including your face, lips, hands, and feet. It absorbs quickly and provides deep hydration for hours. There is also a slight minty/menthol sensation when you apply the cream. I guess that’s why it’s in the box (oh what do you know that I don’t Slutbox?) but… it seems bizarrely out of place!

Lelo Hex Latex Condoms ($7.19) The condoms are packed in a simple and unassuming box.

According to the box, the surface of the condom has 350 hexagons to add more strength to it, while the inner portion has sub fine grooves for additional sensation. The thin latex panels add sturdiness to the whole condom.

LELO claims that “the HEX web decreases the chance of tears and contains them on the off chance that they do occur.” So basically you don’t know if there’s a structural defect with your condom (like if you had snagged it with a nail) because it doesn’t completely snap and break. Even for a miniscule break the condom will no longer provide protection:

There are three packets of condoms inside the box.

Pasteas Sexy Fun Freedom ($9.99) If you want to free your breasts, why not do it the Slutbox way? Pastease is a brand that makes nipple pasties that cover your nipples when you do decide to bare it all. This one is in heart-shaped design that adds sexiness to your overall look in the bedroom!

At the back of the card are the instructions on how to use Pastease with ease. First, you have to remove the backing first from the product, then make sure that your nipples are clean and free from any oils before applying. This will ensure that the Pastease will adhere to your skin.

These nipple pasties are heart-shaped, with the word slut written all over it. I guess I got the Slutbox exclusive pair – others had glitter. Hooray?

It also comes with a discount card if you decide to get more from Pastease.

Fashion Nova We The Sluts T-Shirt ($25) Slutbox is into fashion as well as it seems and this statement shirt definitely fits the bill of making women feel more confident about themselves. The shirt itself has strong words on it:

I am a slut of the people, for the people, and by the people.

This will get plenty of second looks for sure but it takes a different kind of confidence to wear it which is exactly what Slutbox is all about.

At the back of the shirt is the Slutbox logo. I cannot imagine an occasion where I would wear this shirt, even in the privacy of my own home.

Lipslut F*ck Trump Matte Liquid Lipstick ($19.95) This matte liquid lipstick comes in mid-tone nude pink, which can dress up your lips naturally. The best part is that 50% of the earnings from this lipstick goes to civil rights organizations. More specifically:

50% of all earnings from F*ck Trump go towards helping a civil rights organization targeted by the Trump administration. This organization is to be chosen by the people, as with every lipstick purchased comes an opportunity to vote.

The box is surely catchy and it sends a bold statement too. The liquid lipstick is in a clear glass tube so you can easily see the color.

There’s also an applicator that applies smoothly on the lips.

Here’s a swatch! This is a bold color that you can pair with a barely-there eyeshadow so all the attention will be on your lips.

Measurable Difference Lipo Lotion ($55.98) This lotion promises to reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks by lifting, toning, and firming up the loose skin on your body. The formula is quite thick and slick.

It comes with a nubbly vibrating applicator to break down the fatty deposits under your skin while you massage on the cream. It feels good on the skin, but you might have to wait for a while and be consistent in using it before you see actual results. Here’s what I think about this – if you are aiming to keep your face wrinkle-free by moisturizing and anti-wrinkling, doing the same for your butt & thighs isn’t anti-body acceptance.

Subscribers received either this item or the Lifting Cream.

Deo Doc Daily Intimate Wash In Violet Cotton ($19.50) Subscribers received Deo Doc Shaving Intimate Foam, Daily Intimate Wash, or Deospray Intimate in their box. Hypoallergenic and free from parabens, this intimate wash is suitable for everyday use. It helps you maintain a natural pH level and leaves a fresh feeling too.

I have never seen the need to use different wash on my lady parts, but it does smell great!

Skin & Senses Conquer Banana Pudding Lip Treatment ($9) This banana pudding-flavored lip balm keeps the lips soft, smooth, and plump. It makes use of organic plant-based ingredients that provide protection against the sun and other elements. Among the ingredients used are candelilla wax, cocoa butter, apricot kernel oil, flavor oil, avocado butter, rice bran oil, and vitamin E. The taste is super great, I loved this item!

Lelo Personal Moisturizer ($14.90) Formulated with aloe vera, this provides a non-greasy and non-messy lubrication when you need it. It’s paraben-free and glycerin-free too. And yay, sized perfectly for air travel!

It is water-based so you can use it with latex as well as silicone massagers.

It won’t leave any stains on clothing or fabric, and it’s fragrance-free.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with Slutbox – it’s hard to get over the use of such a polarizing term, but beyond that, this box is all about celebrating femininity and loving female bodies. They’re all about bringing out the fiercer side of women and boosting our confidence not just in terms of intimacy but also in taking care of one’s self. The zine was totally fantastic and there were a wide variety of items focused on sexual health as well as body care. I don’t think I’m going to be all “We The Sluts” all over town quite yet, but I appreciate Amber Rose’s hellbent intent on changing views about words that are designed to take power from women. This box certainly isn’t for everyone, both in content and name (I’m still a little incredulous that USPS delivered the box, but I guess they’ll deliver anything!) – it is ultimately an adult subscription box, but one with a very inclusive attitude.

What do you think about SlutboxPlease note that we will close comments without warning if necessary and remove any incendiary or abusive comments. We have no intention of invalidating anyone who disagrees with the use of slut as empowering (or agrees with it), so let’s keep this environment as positive as possible.

    I love how unapologetic this box is about who it’s for and what it’s meant to do. I’m ridiculously impressed with the zine and the overwhelming body positivity messages.
