Goop is Gwyneth Paltrow's life-threatening, wallet-flensing empire of woo, home to smoothie dust, vulva steaming, rocks you keep in your vagina, and a raft of rebadged products that are literally identical to the garbage Alex Jones sells to low-information preppers.
Both Goop and Alex Jones are big on "detoxing," an imaginary remedy that poses a very real health-risk, especially when it involves filling your asshole with coffee.
Coffee enemas are, of course, bullshit, whose history and present are rife with hucksters whose smooth patter is only matched by their depraved indifference for human life.
But as stupid as coffee enemas are, they're even stupider when accomplished by means of Goop's, $135 "Implant O'Rama," manufactured by Implant O’Rama LLC. It's a $135 glass jar with a couple silicon hoses attached to it.
If you don't want to fill your rectum with coffee, Gwyneth also recommends "detoxing" by drinking out of a $350 rose gold crazy straw, applying $85 "wellness oil," drinking from a $84 water bottle with a positive energy crystal jutting proudly from its base, or carrying a $85 shaman bag of "magically charged stones" (at least you carry these in the shaman bag, instead of your birth canal).
Yes, Goop suggests that a coffee enema is a “clutch” way to “supercharge” your “annual goop detox” and start the year in tip-top health. In its latest guide for “deep detoxification,” the Goop team recommends a device called an “Implant O’Rama” for squirting coffee up your keister at home. The product, sold by Implant O’Rama LLC for a bargain $135, is merely a glass bottle with silicone tubing attached.

I am currently sequestered with my parents. I live on coffee. The drip coffee maker died. It will take several days for a new one to arrive, due to Trump’s mismanagement of the United States response to the pandemic. My mother and I are drinking Angel City from Groundwork, perhaps the last good pound of […]
The size and shape of a coffee cup has a factor in how people think the coffee in it tastes, reports Mental Floss. [R]esearchers showed 309 online participants images of eight different coffee mugs and asked them to rank the mugs on how aromatic, bitter, or sweet they would expect the coffee inside it to […]
Kitchen appliances wear out. When they do, it usually means it’s time to toss it and buy a new one. But in recent years, it’s become easier to buy replacement parts, thanks to eBay and Amazon. This trend has kept my Bialetti Moka Express stovetop coffee maker alive and well. My Moka is one of […]
Yoga studios are closed nationwide. The irony is that between the anxieties of the outside world and those popping up inside your very own home with everyone trapped indoors, there’s probably never been a time where yoga’s calming zen was more vital and needed. Rather than just throwing in the yoga mat and subjecting family […]
The workers aren’t inside their physical business space anymore. So why should business technology still be under that roof either? In fact, more and more businesses have been making this migration for a while now, moving all their digital infrastructure to the world’s two largest cloud services platforms, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft’s Azure. […]
Gather round, young and old — and hear tales of bygone days. Back in olden times, citizens would mass at a house of coffee, wherein skilled java alchemists would concoct special blends and apply artisanal wizardry to make each steaming chalice an appointment for the taste buds. Granted, said wizards, once known as baristas, were […]
