Why a smart vibrator?

Did you know that we've hardly seen any research dedicated to female sexuality since the 1980's?

We know that sexual wellness is a basic human need, but society doesn’t treat it that way. And we think that's messed up because we’re all affected by this: in our confidence, relationships, and health.

We're here to change that.

"Today I came when..."

Our customers are exploring in new ways every day

"I am becoming more aware of just how long it takes to reach orgasm - a much shorter time than I thought - and that helps me relax a bit more during current sessions."

"It's given her an opportunity to explore herself...and it's brought us closer together as a couple."

“If you’re like me, and working on a budget of boxed dinners and carpooling to work, you might be thinking, “is this product really worth the investment?” Let me tell you first hand, it’s worth its weight in gold!

"This is the easiest way I've ever been able to get feedback about my body's physiological responses."

“I am spending much less time in the miasma of self-doubt and self-hate, because I am seeing some actual data that contradicts the self-critical bullshit in my head.

"Being forced to think more about my sexual life and my orgasmic response made me realize that I do not have to put up with a medicine if it was causing issues in my sexuality."

FAQ

Why did you start Lioness?

To be honest, at first, I (Liz) was helping myself. I came from a more conservative, Midwestern upbringing where sex just wasn't talked about. The lack of information and stigma made me curious to learn more.

As I started to talk to friends and do things like sell intimacy products to women from many walks of life, I realized that I was far from being the only one who felt uncertain and had questions about sex. But because of the taboo, there are very few opportunities where people feel comfortable asking questions about their own sexual preferences.

Why a smart vibrator?

A lot has changed since the 1980s, but research on female sexuality hasn’t advanced much since then. It’s not for a lack of interest—global taboos, personal discomfort, and lack of funding have held us back, and it doesn’t look like things are going to get much better on their own.

That’s why the kind of work that we’re doing at Lioness is especially important right now. We’ve created a platform for self-experimentation to help women learn about their own, unique bodies, and to learn more about female sexuality as a whole.

Can Lioness actually help me have better sex?

We know. Numbers, data, and charts sound like the least sexy way to explore your sexuality, ever. But we’ve found that removing some of the “sexiness” from sex can help people learn about, understand, and communicate their own sexuality.

Cornell University Sex Researcher Sarah Merrill explains the science behind it—Interoception: "having the physiological feedback to pair with psychological sensations may help to increase mind-body awareness, sexually and holistically.”
