Our Mission

Earthly Delights encourages you to indulge in your wellness journey by investing in experiences, people, and products that make you feel good. We create intentional spaces and products to help expand your capacity for enjoyment.

Our Values

Pleasure Primacy

Everyone should feel good in their bodies. We believe that pleasure is essential, and we recognize that it is routinely denied to oppressed communities. We reclaim our right to pleasure by uplifting sex positivity, body neutrality, body inclusivity, sensuality, radical rest, and leisure.

Proactive Wellness

We recognize wellness as a lifelong practice of self and community love. We prioritize care for ourselves and our communities equally through times of prosperity and distress.

Collective Liberation

We recognize that oppressive structures such as racism, sexism, ableism, classism, and queer/trans antagonism stand in the way of our community’s pleasure and wellness. We strive to co-create a future without exploitation, subjugation, or dehumanization.

Symbiotic Relationships

We strive to maintain mutually beneficial relationships with our natural environment and with our human communities.

Intergenerational Care

We honor the work of our elders and ancestors. We share, teach, and heal in service to past, present, and future generations.
