Honestly, I was getting worried, because what was I supposed to do with a unisex e-cigarette that doesn't feature discotheque-purple and Monotype Corsiva script on the box? Bang it on the table? Make a sandwich with it? I don't knowww.


Considering the female-geared advertising for cigarette brands like Virginia Slims a scant few decades ago, it's pretty unsurprising that Vaping Vamps, the first electronic cigarette targeted specifically for women, went on the market earlier this month. The brand was created by Maria Verven, a lifelong non-smoker whose 18-year-old daughter was trying to quit. Verven was displeased when she searched for e-cigarettes on the Internet. "I couldn't find any websites that truly connected with women, earned their trust and educated them on the benefits of vaping over smoking."

So, who (theoretically) smokes these particular e-cigarettes? Let them explain it.

A Vaping Vamp is a mature, confident woman. She's vital. Vibrant. Vivacious. Full of vim and vigor.

Whether out on the town at restaurants, theatres and events, working out at the local gym, cheering on her kids in sports or staying in to quilt, read or craft, a Vaping Vamp enjoys life.

A Vaping Vamp revels in her femininity. She's not afraid to be who she is. She loves expressing herself in her clothing, hair and make-up.

And she takes good care of herself. She knows that looking good on the outside is a reflection of who she is on the inside.

The sentiment behind Vaping Vamps is admirable—it's the first independent e-cigarette company targeted specifically to women, not to mention run by a woman, and it donates part of its proceeds to Dress For Success, a non-profit organization that helps financially-struggling women acquire professional attire for job interviews. However, aside from the packaging, it doesn't look like the actual e-cigarette is tailored to suit the specific needs of women at all, who have a different quit process than men do and could undoubtedly benefit from a little innovation to make the device suit their needs specifically, rather than just include a number of "kissable" fruit flavors to vape with and such.



This article bums me out because it's drawing attention to something that in no way represents the vaping community. Yes, vaping actually has a community...complete with conventions and lots of DIY! It's been there for years. Shit like this just comes from crappy companies that no one cares about who are marketing 510 style e-cigs that were "the thing" about five years ago. No one uses these anymore. Most people use "mods" which are built by individuals and small companies. It's actually really great. Juice is usually produced by individuals who mix it up at home and sell it, ie) or I get the intention, Anna, but this article is just sort of pointless because tons of big shitty e-cig companies pull shit like this. But who cares? No one pays attention to them or buys their shit. If you'd like to learn more about the vaping community, please check out It's sort of the internet hub of the community.

Also, this is Amber:

She's totally magical and great and reviews mods. As does her partner, Nick: They are respected members of the vaping community and prime examples of the kind of people who love to vape.
