Hot on the heels of her vagina candle comes Gwyneth's latest goop launch, her orgasm candle, which she announced on Tuesday night in an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

As you may know, Gwyneth and her lifestyle brand, goop, are famous for what she calls "good controversy". Which means selling products like the aforementioned 'This smells like my vagina' candle and giving advice that includes the jade egg saga of 2017, when she claimed that inserting jade eggs into the vagina had numerous health benefits (it very much doesn't - according to actual gynaecologists).

Earlier this year Gwyneth went viral for the 'This smells like my vagina' candle, which many people saw as a peak goop move, since the brand is known for being out-there. Speaking to Jimmy Fallon in her interview on Tuesday night, Gwyneth referenced the original product saying she thought it was, "punk rock," and "feminist". They do say there's nothing more punk rock than paying £59 for a candle.

After mentioning the original candle, Gwyneth introduced her latest product, telling Fallon, "We have a new one, which actually might be more for you to give to your wife." She said before holding up a candle with a label that read, 'This smells like my orgasm'.

Although the candle's box is decorated with fireworks, I don't think we're meant to take the name too literally. According to goop, the actual notes of the candle are "tart grapefruit, neroli, and ripe cassis berries blended with gunpowder tea and Turkish rose absolutes".

And yes, the candle is available to pre-order on goop for £59 - although it doesn't look like it's shipping to the UK at the moment. Shame.
