Project Description

Hi there! I'm Candice, founder of Tango, and I used to have bad sex. 

It wasn’t my fault... School taught me about pregnancy and STIs, and my parents didn't talk about it... so, like any other millennial with access to a computer, I learned about sex from the internet, which is one of the worst ways to learn about sex. I didn’t know how to talk about what I wanted, and I certainly didn’t know how to advocate for my pleasure. 

I even got my degree in sexuality studies at Harvard, and, while I learned how to critically analyze porn, I still didn’t know how to talk about sex.

And I wasn't alone. 

In a recent study, just 2 of every 5 women said they felt fully satisfied after sex.

After a decade of struggling with unhealthy intimacy in (and out of) relationships, and some difficult years in a sexless relationship, I had enough. I threw myself into research on ways to improve sex and intimacy in relationships, and developed the first educational, experience-based approach to better sex and intimacy for adults - that comes in a box!

Meet Tango, the first educational subscription for couples to have better sex and deeper intimacy.

Our Mission:

Sexual wellness has been proven to be JUST as important as mental and physical wellness on one's wellbeing - especially if you're in a relationship.

However, there's no such thing as pleasure-positive Sex & Intimacy Education for Adults. Until now.

Tango is on a mission to change the way couples communicate about intimacy and strengthen relationships. Tango is more than a box. It’s a movement to change the way adults communicate about sex and intimacy. It's a movement that started because I used to have bad sex, and it affected me for over a decade until I learned how to advocate for my pleasure, and I didn't want anyone else to suffer the way I had in my intimate relationships.

Couples who talk about sex have better sex. 

Research consistently shows that couples who talk about sex have better sex. In fact, the Gottman Marriage Institute found that communication about sex is even more important than actually having sex when it comes to sexual satisfaction.

We help start the conversation. 

Tango is the first intimacy education subscription box bringing playful passion into the bedroom with guided games for couples to explore and communicate about intimacy!

Sure, there's sex toys inside. But the toys come second to the "Sexperiential Learning™" Games, our colorful, pleasure-positive instruction cards that guide you and your lover through sexual activities, games, and conversations. The purpose? To help you practice healthy sexual communication habits, teach each other your sexual preferences, and explore different aspects of your sexuality -- and to have fun!!

Tango is about more than just better sex. It's about deeper intimacy and stronger relationships.

We are constantly evolving and changing as people -- mentally, emotionally, physically, and sexually -- and so are our relationships. Tango helps keep the lines of communication open between partners, so that you can learn about your partner's changing likes and dislikes. And with each play-through, you can learn something new about yourself and your partner!

We’re actually scientifically engineered to help you have better sex. 

Tango is hands-on sex ed designed specially for adults. Partners play games to learn each others’ needs and gain new intimate conversation strategies.

As a certified educator, I wanted to create a method to improve intimate communication that was based in research. My method, "Sexperiential Learning™" comes from "Experiential Learning" - an educational technique where students learn by having, and then reflecting on, an experience.

With this method, Tango Kits are the experience - with research-backed activities and games to guide lovers to better intimate communication - and better sex!

It’s everything you should have learned in your sex ed class, adapted for your relationship.

The games themselves disguise an intricate, educational curriculum designed to bring couples closer together through intimate communication. They are backed by over 50 studies on relationship psychology, the science of arousal and pleasure, and game design.

How it works:

Go to www.tango.love and choose your own "Bedventure": do you want a sexperience to rekindle and connect with your partner? Or do you want to explore new things and spice it up? Then choose your plan: individual Kit or ongoing quarterly or annual subscription. 

When you receive your Kit, just open, follow the instructions and guided games, and play!
