Gwyneth Paltrow Says Her Teen Son Thinks It’s Cool That His Mom Is Now Selling Vibrators

Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness brand, Goop, sells a variety of vibrators, some for a reasonable $89, others for the “eat the rich and steal their sex toys” price of $1,249 (or only four interest-free payments of $312.25!). The Oscar-winning actress has been making the promotional rounds to discuss her Netflix show, Sex, Love, & goop, including an appearance on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Host Ellen DeGeneres wondered what Paltrow’s 15-year-old son, Moses, thinks about his mom discussing vibrators on TV. “Can I tell you the sweetest thing? This really happened,” she replied. “A few months ago, out of nowhere, he said, ‘Mom, I was really embarrassed for a minute that Goop sold vibrators. And then I realized no, this is great — you’re making people feel not embarrassed to buy something, and that’s great. You’re a feminist.’ I was like, ‘Thank you, my dear!’ It was so cute.” Maybe this actually happened, maybe it didn’t, but I hope it did and that it’s not another “Ruthkanda.”

Paltrow continued, “I try always to be neutral on the topic. I think my generation, we got a lot of messages around sex that made us feel bad about it. I try to just be curious. And teenagers are never going to want to talk to their parents about sex ever, so I sort of follow their lead, and luckily in middle school they had a very thorough sex education, so the school handled the kind of birds-and-the-bees parts, and then I am there for any questions. But the questions are pretty minimal.” That’s good parenting from Paltrow, which not be confused with Goop Parenting, their new clothing line for moms and dads.
