Our Story

The Femme Flexor is an innovative pelvic floor strengthening tool, designed by a sexual wellness expert and a pelvic floor physiotherapist who share a passion for pelvic floor health. The Femme Flexor was proudly invented and made in North America.

Meet Wanda Cotie

Wanda Cotie (pronouns she/her) is a sexual wellness expert who has helped thousands of individuals develop and nurture more fulfilling relationships with their partners and with themselves. Over more than two decades, Wanda observed just how prevalent pelvic floor issues are and was struck by the depth of impact they often have on people’s lives. Pelvic floor issues can range from mild to very serious and many individuals suffer in silence. Strengthening pelvic floor muscles can greatly reduce issues, increasing overall quality of life.

Wanda believes that every person should have the opportunity and support to maintain a strong pelvic floor. Searching the worldwide market, she was frustrated to discover that there was a gap in flexible, comfortable and safe pelvic floor strengthening tools. Wanda took it upon herself to invent such a product, and the Femme Flexor was born.

With the help of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist Silvia Saraiva, the Femme Flexor’s innovative shape provides ease, comfort and effectiveness. The two are now on a mission to empower women to take control of their pelvic floor health through preventative and therapeutic training methods.
