Studies have shown that testosterone is associated with new sexual behaviors, changes in sexual attraction, and increased frequency of sexual activity among trans men2. Translation: while on testosterone, sex changes radically and sex drive is through the roof.
What exactly *is* a sex machine, anyway? You could argue that vibrators or anything with some sort of electronics is a fuck machine...after all, our Lioness Vibrator is a sex toy built more like an early iPhone inside with a multilayer board and an array of sensors so you can track your every whim and desire. Are basic vibes with on/off switches or more technologically advanced ones like the Lioness also considered machines?
"I like BDSM. I like bondage. I have a fetish sometimes around dominance situations as the one dominated or dominant. Am I weird? Am I broken? Am I a sick person? Is BDSM morally wrong?" Your questions answered with real studies on the topic.
A clitoris pump (also colloquially known as a clit pump, pussy pump, or clit sucking toys) is a device that you place over your clitoris (and sometimes vulva) that provides clitoral stimulation via a cunnilingus-like sensation. Its purpose is to enhance sexual arousal and pleasure, add additional stimulation, and depending on the toy, potentially bring the person using it to orgasm.
Frigid. It's a term that's somehow gained a feeling of medical significance despite never having any formal definition at all. Here, we explore what it REALLY is, how it came to be, and what relevance it has to us today.
In the days since the worldwide Black Lives Matter protests began in the spring, we have been finding ways to heal and be better, slowly but surely. We’ve transformed our anger into action. We joined book clubs to learn more about racial justice. We’ve initiated difficult conversations about race in our own communities. We voted a problematic president out of the White House.
But one area of racial justice that’s often overlooked is right in the center of our homes: the bedroom.
Lube gets a lot of unnecessary flack. Even though research has shown that 65.5 percent of women and 70 percent of men have used commercial lubricants, there are still many folks who have the attitude that if you are sexually lacking if you need to use additional lubrication.
Short of me saying those people are flat out wrong, here’s the thing — lubrication isn’t just for people who lack natural moisture. As Vice aptly states, “having high-quality lube is kind of like putting high-quality gas in your car: Everything runs a lot better.”
We’ll talk about FAQs, considerations, and even provide recommendations to help get you started.
Vibrators, clit stimulators, Magic Wands, nipple clamps and cock rings are getting us through this wild slice of history.
We talk freely about the role that masturbation plays in our everyday lives, but it hasn’t always been that way. From the Victorian era (1800s) until the 1970’s, it was fairly taboo to talk about masturbation. From the 1920’s to the 1950’s, sex toys were marketed as household appliances or self-massagers, even though it was common knowledge that these products were used for sexual pleasure.
As a tribute to the sex toy legends that paved the way for our Lioness Vibrators, we’ve put together a list of noteworthy sex toys throughout history.
It’s no question that the pandemic has upended our lives in every way imaginable, but what impact did it have on our sex and masturbation habits?
While a number of stories in the media may lead you to believe that everyone is buying more sex toys and having more sex, we have evidence that those bedrooms are not actually that buzzy. Sure, many of us are spending more time at home. But we think there are some very real implications from living through these unprecedented times.
The takeaway? COVID sex and its alleged sex toy boom is an ambiguous conclusion at best. Using Lioness Vibrator product usage as our guide, we’ve observed far more convincing evidence of a significant drop-off in masturbation frequency as the year wore on relative to 2019 for the same users.
We looked at anonymous aggregate usage statistics from 1879 Lioness users who were active in 2019 and 2020 and nearly 40,000 sessions recorded from January 1, 2019 through December 12, 2020. There were 19,578 total sessions in 2019 and 19,481 total sessions in 2020*. We supplemented this data with a user survey to better understand what’s going on from a qualitative perspective.
This report is not only the world’s largest physiological data set on sexual behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s also the world’s biggest study done on real world, in-the-bedroom-where-sex-happens sex (rather than in the confines of a research laboratory) in general!
