Sandy Haksi is the Web Campaign Manager and Sr. Writer at Good Company Communications.
Hello Cool World has been pleased to offer our Canadian shoppers Good Clean Love products in the Hello Cool World webstore since December. In our work we strive to be as sex-positive as possible and, as our Creative Director Kat likes to say, we are in the business of "pleasure management." So when we connected with Wendy Strgar, an Oregon-based entrepreneur and loveologist, it was a perfect match.
Good Clean Love makes natural, organic products to enhance intimacy and loving relationships. On her blog, the Good Clean Love Daily, Wendy addresses questions and topics around building and sustaining healthy relationships. "True happiness comes as a result of sustained emotional investment in other people," writes Wendy.
Her products, including love oils, body candy and lubricants, bring lovers closer together. "A sex life is actually a fairly accurate reflection of your overall health. Hundreds of studies link a satisfying sex life with reduced stress, illness and depression. Sexual activity is even associated with longevity."

PLEASURE ON OUR MINDS!
Yesterday afternoon we had another informal salon as David Ng is heading back to Cape Town today. It was a smaller less flamboyant send off, as we had the actual going away party (fondue-b-q) at Bella's on Friday night. (pictured above!) But a couple of our cohorts who missed the 'do' on Friday came to say their good-byes. And of course it turned into an informal theory salon as we discussed one of favorite themes, pleasure and sexual health!

Hello Cool World's campaign with Options For Sexual Health hits the airwaves! Watch for our ad featuring full frontal condom nudity on the late night time slots on CBC and Global starting today, Feb 21! It's also on our site: www.ThatsSoSexy.com
The two versions of the 30 second spot will be on CBC during Ghost Whisperer airing 12 pm to 1am until March 14 and on Global until March 5 during their late night rotation 11:30pm - 3:30am airing after the night news and during the re-runs of ET, and ET Canada (may also include late night movies, PGA golf and Family Guy).
This ad was first created a few years ago, Directed by David Ng, with funding from The Vancouver Foundation & Hello Cool World, with Non-profit Partner Options for Sexual Health. It was created with the help of DOP & Mentor Paul Lang, Video In Studios, The Hive, Terry Fairfield and featuring the sultry voice over of non-other than my niece Amanda Dodds! This 'anniversary edition' was remixed just before David left for Cape Town and grad school, and used some of the recent photos from the Opt photoshoot. (You may have seen the bus ad around down featuring a couple making out in the clinic waiting room with the tag - "We've Got A Room For You"!)
This campaign is celebrating 10 years of putting sex in advertising where it belongs by Hello Cool World and Options For Sexual Health. We turned 10 this week, and Opt begins a year of celebrations for their 50th Anniversary!

We did it! We managed to survive our FIRST decade as a company that only takes on work we love and causes we believe in!
Hello Cool World Founder & Creative Director Katherine Dodds with Opt-branded condom - "Ready For Pleasure."
We've been most famous for our work on The Corporation, but on our V-Day B-day as we are flirtingly calling it, we are highlighing a decade of sex work -- sexual health education that is -- but sexy!
