"I think it is challenging for people to change careers," Paltrow, 43, shared. "If you're in the public eye and you make a shift I think it's confusing for a minute… In a lot of ways I was the first, so I took a lot of s**t."
Among the many risqué items the issue discusses is homemade lubricant -- which was the catalyst for creating a sex issue in the first place. According to Paltrow, the issue was inspired by an episode of the Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie, in which Frankie (Lily Tomlin) makes her own lube out of sweet potatoes.
"We started thinking, 'Is lube toxic? Why is she making homemade lube?' And then we started reading [the ingredients]," Paltrow shared with Handler. "Were very conscious about non-toxic products at Goop. And then we learned that lube is actually really toxic."
Homemade lube wasn't the only interesting sex product to stand out from the publication's adult issue. Goop also recommended a $15,000 gold sex toy, because your regular run-of-the-mill sex toy just doesn’t cut it. Check out the video below to hear more.
