There is a scientific theory that everyone and everything on Earth is literally made of star-stuff. All humans, plants, and rocks contain carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and atoms created from exploding stars over 4.5 billion years ago. 🌒🌚🌝🌞🌙💫 This may or may not explain why you feel like you sparkle and shine when you are out on the dance floor. 💃🏾✨
But let’s be real, it’s hard to keep that sparkle going every single day, right? We need those precious moments to recharge our batteries and take care of ourselves. Heck, even the positive energy emitted by crystals (aka pretty rocks dug up from the earth) requires time and attention to constantly renew their healing energy. And look, if a rock needs time and attention to be healthy – then so do you.
It’s not unusual, even for a crystal, to feel depleted or hold a lot of negative energy within, which is why regular care is recommended. Because when you need to hold, caress, or rub down that stone (or a body part of choice) – you want what you’re rubbing to be a thing of greatness. Am I right?
Sex should be the great sparkly explosion you deserve. 💥✨ You should shine brightly in the eyes of your partner. 🌞And, while you’re at it, ward off any evil juju out there 🙅🏾 and–you know–down there. So, think of this blog as transgender support for sparkly, safe sex.
Let’s start with warding off bad juju
There’s this beautiful blue pill, called PrEP, that comes in the same lovely color as chrysocolla. You wanna know what’s great about the gemstone chrysocolla? It draws out guilt, heals heartache, and increases the capacity to love. 💖There’s this beautiful blue pill, called PrEP, that comes in the same lovely color as chrysocolla.

You wanna know what’s great about PrEP? It instills confidence, improves intimacy, and reduces your chances of catching HIV by 99%. 👏🏾
Here’s what PrEP is good for:
- Warding off HIV: PrEP reduces your chances of getting HIV by 99% when you take it as prescribed. Just keep in mind that it doesn’t protect against other STDs or pregnancy – however, you can combine PrEP with condoms for an incredible layer of protection.
- Instilling confidence: You can do the bedroom rodeo and have fun without worrying about HIV.
- Improving intimacy: If your partner is worried about their HIV status and passing it on, that sex is not going to be as sparkly as you need it to be. Taking PrEP can lessen the worry for the partner living with HIV.
- Freedom to explore: PrEP offers protection for frontal and anal sex
Before you fire up those lower chakras, a few more notes:
Just so you know, it’s safe to take estrogen alongside PrEP. Researchers have done studies to ensure estrogen levels remain steady while PrEP protects against HIV 🙅🏾. And best news ever, taking PrEP alongside feminizing hormones will not lead to fat redistribution in the face or body. 👏🏾
PrEP is safe for transgender men and works alongside gender-affirming hormones and other gender-affirming procedures. Now, gender-affirming hormones might reduce natural lubrication and thin the tissue inside the front hole, which can make you more vulnerable to infection. The walls of the rectum can also be affected the same way. So daily PrEP is the way to go and make sure you are always armed with lube.
Long-term use of testosterone can lead to infertility but remember that testosterone isn’t contraception. You may want to consider taking birth control 💊 (including hormonal birth control), just for that extra level of protection. We talked more about taking PrEP on birth control here, if you’re interested
And for the pocketbook
You won’t even have to break out the pyrite, the famous stone for attracting moolah. You’ll be happy to know that with our help, you can get PrEP for as little as $0.
