Most women want a fun, healthy sex life (shocker!)-but let's be totally honest: No matter how sex-positive you are, talking about sex can sometimes feel a little awkward. Almost half of women (45 percent) from 18 to 25 agree that the topic can be a little, erm, weird to talk about, according to LOLA, the brand behind the highly Instagrammable cotton tampons. To help make you feel less awkward with sex talk, LOLA just launched a sexual wellness kit and guide.

LOLA may have started out with subscription-based period products, but the company has evolved to become a go-to for all things sexual wellness. Earlier this year, LOLA launched Sex by LOLA, a line of contraception and sexual wellness products-think natural latex condoms, and aloe-based hypoallergenic lube-and now the brand is taking things a step further with their Sexual Wellness Kit and Guide.

What does a feminist sexual wellness kit include, you ask? Product-wise, LOLA's kit is pretty straightforward-gynecologist-approved Sex by LOLA lube, condoms, cleansing wipes and a carry-all case that you can either store neatly in your nightstand or take on-the-go for your next Bumble date. But the really valuable thing for your sexual wellness is LOLA's personal, relatable sex guide with expert input from Corina Dunlap, N.D., a naturopathic women's health specialist and Wendy Hurst, M.D., a board-certified gynecologist.

LOLA's guide pretty much covers all your sexual queries-everything from basics like safe sex and insights about your anatomy to pleasure-based topics like foreplay, masturbation, and how to talk about sex with a partner. While a lot of the guide is basic info (which is great for those who aren't that sexually experienced yet) it could also help to start important conversations at any stage of your sex life. For example, how to talk about it if you're concerned one of your friends isn't practicing safe sex, what to do if you think you might be in an abusive relationship, and how to deal if you keep getting a UTI after sex. (For the latter, one study found that working out-and staying hydrated-might help you prevent the pesky bacterial infections.) Think of the guide like the sex-ed class you wish you had.

You can get your own Sexual Wellness Kit + Guide ($34; mylola.com) starting today at LOLA.com. Bring it to your next girls' night and let the conversation begin.
