Open & Honest: Grapevine Influencers Create to Empower Fans

The appeal with Influencer Marketing is all about the ability for brands to partner with top creators to share truly authentic experiences with brands, and nothing is more open and honest than sharing your self-love experiences. We’ve partnered up with plusOne and some incredible body positive influencers to help women feel comfortable and confident in their own skin. 

At Grapevine, a woman-led company, we’re proud that we’ve built a community of thousands of female-identifying creators. We want to empower women to take ownership of their self-love preferences, as it shouldn’t be “edgy” or taboo to be open with who you are and what you like. 

We’re proud of how brands on our platform encourage creators to challenge taboos and create incredible content at the same time.

One such collaboration is with plusOne. plusOne is here to change the game with the first line of affordable, high-quality sexual health devices that are easily available for purchase at mass retailers nationwide. Whether this is your first purchase or an addition to your collection, read on to see how our community of creators has enjoyed the product!

How Influencer Marketing Works for plusOne 

To help with plusOne’s mission, Grapevine built a campaign that invited women to open up about their self-love activities. For this program, we hand-selected two well-known influencers in the “transparent lifestyle” space.

What do we mean by a “transparent lifestyle?” Transparent Lifestyle influencers are creators that show the good, the bad, and the ugly in their life. We sent them the entire plusOne line in an effort to foster an empowering safe space for them to test out and share their honest experience with these products. From there, they gave their honest experience with their self-love journey, and shared their thoughts on the plusOne devices, describing how approachable the products and how empowered they felt after using them.

When you no longer feel guilty about doing things that make you feel good 😏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I told you all a couple weeks back that I’d update you on my experience with @_myplusone products so here it is! 👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The pink toy I’m holding is called the ‘Air Pulsing Arouser. I was a little nervous to use it because like most women, my clitoris is veerryyy sensitive. Sometimes it tickles, sometimes it hurts so it’s important that I have the perfect pressure and stimulation combo. 😅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Arouser definitely does the trick for me 🔥 (I explain how in my IG stories!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉 Remember the body is not an image, it’s an experience!! 👈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s no shame in embracing the sexual experience your body has to offer. In fact, it’s been one of the most EMPOWERING things I’ve done for my #selflovejourney ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although this partnership is sponsored, this review is 100% honest. I wouldn’t tell ya to do something that doesn’t feel good, I promise!!! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Arouser is available at WalMart! Let me know once you get it and how ya like it. 😉 . . . . #ad #getaroused #invitealittlepleasure #throughthevine #bodyimage #bodypositivity #bodypositive #nobodyshame #losehatenotweight

One of our influencers, Mary, an ex-bikini model, posts content about her journey, how she came to love her body, and what she does to celebrate it. Her followers come to her not only for her warm personality but also for her life advice. A natural people-person, she’s recently started to host self-love retreats and getaways. Mary’s Instagram followers are able to sign up for the 10-day self-finding, self-reflecting trip in Zanzibar.  She uses her platform to show the most important part of self-love, learning the importance of feeling comfortable with your own pleasure. Mary expressed, “Now, I’m learning. I’m learning what I like and what I don’t like in bed. I’m learning what feels good and what doesn’t. And most importantly, I’m learning my body.”

Despite being constantly surrounded by messages of how we should look, dress, or weigh, we can strive to embrace our bodies by establishing healthy feelings about our body image. By appreciating our bodies for all they do, we can start a meaningful relationship with ourselves which will give us the confidence to explore sexual satisfaction. 

Natalie Negrotti, another Grapevine influencer, shares “there is nothing taboo about exploring the skin we’re in”, after opening up about her experience with plusOne on Instagram.

Knowing your body is so important. Heading out into the world to concur yet another stressful day can be troublesome for those not in tune mentally, physically, and emotionally with themselves. Being a strong woman in today’s world means balancing a busy schedule while still finding solitude and time to spend alone within ourselves. Now that I’m 29 years old I’m coming to the realization that no matter your age, body type, or sexual preference, loving yourself is the key to evolving and exploring our bodies is beneficial to more than just our needs. It reminds us that as women it’s ok to voice what it is we truly want and need. love yourself and don’t be ashamed of the woman that you’ll forever be exploring. I’m excited to announce my partnership with @_myplusone and start the conversations, comment below your awakening story. #ad #invitealittlepleasure #selfcare #throughthevine

You don’t have to search far to see how conversations about self-love and wellness have increasingly moved away from being a taboo subject. Social media platforms make it easier to see how people have started to share their own personal stories on their self-love discoveries in a very raw and open way. Natalie explains how no one should be ashamed of one’s pleasures, especially when it comes to our own bodies. 

We’re honored to partner with plusOne to give our creators a platform to challenge what society deems as normal. We encourage you to check out their website for their full mission and goals. And remember, pleasure isn’t a luxury – it’s for everyone, and so is plusOne!
