Wendy Strgar, Founder & CEO
In 2006, Wendy Strgar founded Good Clean Love, a sexual health company with the mission to increase the quantity and quality of loving relationships in the world. A mother of four, married to the same man for over thirty years, she started Good Clean Love because her own sex life had become painful. The first love oils were ones Strgar made in her own home from herbs she grew in her garden. At the time, she didn’t know that she was one of millions of women who suffered from painful sex, or that the heavily concentrated petrochemicals in lubricant products were making it worse. She only knew that her sex life was too important to give up and was determined to find a healthier alternative than the ones currently available.
For the last twelve years, Strgar has been writing about sex and mating rituals as an integral part of building lasting relationships and sustaining health. Strgar believes that the key elements required to sustain healthy and lasting intimacy are all skill-based, which means that with attention and education, anyone can learn and improve upon them. Her award-winning blog, Making Love Sustainable, has a readership of thousands each week. Strgar’s writing has also been featured in a variety of print and online publications including Marriage magazine, Common Ground, Whole Living magazine, Care2, Huffington Post, and Elephant Journal. Strgar’s first book, Love That Works: A Guide to Enduring Intimacy, is based on the first five years of her writing on sustainable love.
In addition to featured lectures at Bioneers and Green Festivals, Strgar offers workshops for cancer survivors, returning soldiers, and youth at a wide range of levels in the school system. She also coaches individuals seeking to improve the quality of their personal relationships and intimate partnerships. In all her work, Wendy aims to share tools and insights to help people tackle the challenging issues of sustaining relationships and healthy intimacy.
