Like Oprah's favorite things... but a little bit raunchier. ;)
At Lioness, we stumble upon all sorts of interesting things year-round, some sex-related, some not. Some are just awesome and we want to tell someone about it. So we figure during this holiday season, this is a great time to highlight some of those awesome things that you might want to give/get as a gift.
Unfettered — Macrame Art
Janis is a macrame artist who creates beautiful wall hangings, and some of those include boob wall hangers. They have been polarizing in the past with some audiences, but I have a feeling our Lioness Pride will give them some love... !
Emily Johnston makes beautiful body cage and harness designs using colors and materials that you wouldn't normally see from a mass producer. She also does custom work if you have a particular color or design you've been dreaming about!
Wine (or whiskey) glass butt plug
Never imagined such a thing existed? Me neither. But if you wanted to have some very cheeky wine glasses for your New Years party... or wanted to try some acrobatic feat yourself, here's your chance!
Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski, Ph. D.
If you've had questions about sexual arousal and desire, look no further than Emily Nagoski's book. There, you will learn that our varied experiences are quite normal, our sex drives are different and can change over time, and we are not alone in our experiences and questions, even if it might feel that way sometimes because we don’t have many places to discuss sex openly. This is a really important book if you have questions or concerns about your own experiences and are looking for new contexts and tools to embrace and be your best self.
Cunt Coloring Book by Tee Corinne
Originally created for a sex education class, this coloring book contains over three dozen detailed "cunts" to color, each very different and unique from each other.
Massage Oil Candles
These clever candles are made of massage oil, so when you light them up, you can drip the warmed oil on your partner! This wax doesn’t get very hot, and some of these candles (like the one above) are designed with spouts so you can control the release of the wax.
My favorite one is from JimmyJane, who created an award-winning line of massage candles that are made of porcelain, the spout is subtly designed into the overall form factor, and the Dark Vanilla scent smells really good yet is not overpowering. If you’ve been toying with the idea of wax play, this is a good place to start.
Love is Art
If you want to get a little artistic with your sex, you can get this kit so you can play with (body safe) paint during a lovemaking session, and then have a Jackson Polluck-esque painting to keep afterward. No one has to know your avant-garde painting above the fireplace mantle was by you… or that you had some great sex to make it.
Portable BDSM Bondage Board
If I could give whoever invented this an award for sexual ingenuity, I would. It comes completely assembled and has a bunch of places where you can hook up cuffs and tie down people in a variety of different positions. Oh yes, and it’s padded. When you’re done, you can fold it up and hide it under the bed.
You can even keep some of the straps and stuff on it so it’s easy to get into the heat of things again the next time you want to use it. Last night was Bondage Saturday, Sunday morning you have your in-laws over, minimal clean up.
Cannabis and CBD
Eaze is a one-stop shop for all things cannabis — we've taken a look at some of their products (with great results here and here). They're also refreshingly sex positive — we even did a data report with them earlier this year called Let's Toke About Sex, which you can check out here!
Their dosist line (including their cannabis line for sex) is currently at a new half price from their original pricing, a bunch of their products are at 20% off at this special link here! And if you're a new customer and something else catches your eye after the holiday sales, use code LIONESS to save 20% off your first order.

Meditation — Waking up by Sam Harris
Meditation is extraordinarily beneficial for stress, anxiety, and our overall health... and yes, that also includes pleasure! I've been using Sam Harris' Waking Up app for nearly a year now, and their variety of different classes have been helpful for getting through the most stressful of times. Best thing is, it's free to start!
Shoes for everybody that will get you compliments for days.
BlkSheep Empire was started by footwear designer Jen Webb who wanted to create comfortable statement shoes for women that weren't already on the market. Inspired by bold colors and unique materials, she makes shoes from classic flats, oxfords, and sneakers that are as beautiful as they are comfortable to wear. I get compliments on my shoes all the time!
United Nude was started by a former architect and a seventh generation shoemaker to make shoes that take a variety of different forms, colors, and effects. No material is left out as they incorporate clear hard plastics, faux furs, velcro, and more for their lines of shoes available for all genders.
Penelopijones Clitoris Ring
If you want to excite some friends about the full structure of the clitoris on your finger, or intrigue some relatives at the dining room table this holiday season, Penelopijones has some clit-acular clitoris rings.
Vulva necklace by Anna Siivonen
If artistic renderings are more your thing, Anna Siivonen has made a variety of exciting vulva jewelry including pendants, brooches, and more.
Ticketybootique — Pet costumes
If you're in the market for some ridiculous pet costumes (and honestly... who isn't?) Ticketybootique makes some of the funniest, quirkiest ones out there. Seriously, their shop is a riot and good even for browsing for laughs... and then buy ALL of the costumes.
