Can a vibrator change the world? We think so.
Hey there! We’re Liz and Anna, and we created Lioness — the tool for sexual self-experimentation.
With Lioness, we're placing the power to understand your pleasure into your own hands and revolutionizing the way we approach our sexual pleasure.
"When you think of items that boost women's empowerment and self-esteem, you might not immediately think of a vibrator—but the Lioness Vibrator is looking to change that."
"Woman does Lord's work, makes smart vibrator."
Lioness: Your platform for self-experimentation
We’re launching our understanding of sexual pleasure into the 21st century with the first and only health tracker designed to help you explore your unique body.
"Today I came when..."
Our customers are exploring in new ways every day.
"What an emotional experience! I cannot thank you enough for helping me unlock information about myself! Because of your product I can now say that I have experienced a vaginal orgasm, something that I honestly thought was never going to happen. From my heart to yours, thank you."
“The feel and size of it are perfect. The data that it collects for you on your smart phone is an eye opener. I have thoroughly enjoyed this. I particularly enjoy the ease of reading and understanding the data on the graphs...I would recommend this for both single play and couples play. You will not be disappointed."
"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 felt like opening the floodgates of communication...and it encouraged my boyfriend to be more open with me as well."
“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."
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.
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 (and all folks) learn about their own, unique bodies, and to learn more about our sexual pleasure as a whole.
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.”
