I could list off all the benefits of exercising, but here’s one of the biggest motivators: research has shown that exercise can improve your orgasms and sexual activity. 

Aerobic exercise improves oxygen and blood flow throughout the body, which can mean long-lasting erections for people with penises and higher clitoral sensitivity for people with vaginas. 

Plus, working out can boost body positivity and make you feel more confident and present in your body.

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) is a more aggravated version of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). PMS feels like bopping to an angsty No Doubt song on the radio, while PMDD feels like being trapped in a Hawthorne Heights screamo concert with no end in sight.

PMDD is a medical condition that causes severe irritability, anxiety, and depression in the week or two before your period(1). Symptoms subside 2-3 days after your period starts. An estimated 5-8% of women and AFAB (assigned female at birth) individuals have PMDD(2).

Those of us that have PMDD can thank our lucky stars that masturbating serves as a fun way to relieve symptoms.

We talk a lot about the Lioness Vibrator and its capabilities. We’ve even mentioned how it can help you integrate your sexual health into your overall health in order to understand how the two are linked.

But getting started can feel daunting. How do you take what your Lioness shows you in the app and apply it to your sex life in real life? 

Using help from certified Sex Coach Amy Baldwin, we’ve compiled an easy to follow guide for how you can take improve your own understanding of your arousal and orgasms. 

Ah, weed lube. Who wouldn’t be intrigued by the promise of better orgasms?

I’ve spent the last seven years developing the Lioness Smart Vibrator, which uses biofeedback technology, precision sensors, and data to track orgasms. Of that time, I’ve spent three of those years conducting different projects studying the effects of cannabis on sexual function. Naturally, those two passions intersected into exploring how all sorts of cannabis strains and products can affect pleasure, both with myself and with different people.

That’s why I’m excited to share with you today a review of one of my favorite cannabis lubricants, Quim’s Oh Yes Latex-safe Serum. I’ll share my orgasm data to show what made this different compared to everything else I’ve tried.

Better orgasms, a tighter vagina, more lubrication, increased libido—many people with vaginas would leap to experience one of these benefits, and to know them all? Well, paying for that wouldn't be out of the question for some. No wonder certain doctors offer the Orgasm Shot, or O-Shot, to “rejuvenate” your vagina. But this procedure also has its critics...which maybe isn't a surprise given that you're putting a needle into the vagina and clitoris.

Learn what the science says (and doesn't say) about the O-Shot before you spread your legs for one of these injections.

If you watched Masters of Sex on Showtime or took any classes on sexual health or sexuality, you've likely heard of Masters and Johnson. If you haven't, you'll want to get to know them.

It’s hard to imagine labor and delivery as anything other than a woman screaming in pain, enduring the painful process that is birth. But those who have had an orgasmic birth — otherwise referred to as a “birthgasm” — will tell you that sometimes, the excruciating pain experienced during childbirth can transition into something that is best described as ecstatic pleasure. Learn more about orgasmic birthing and how you might be able to have one too.

It sounds like a philosophical question — "What's the difference between a real and a fake orgasm?"

While orgasms might be more obvious if you have a penis (though even then, people can get creative if they want or need to fake it), there is a lot of confusion over what constitutes a “real”, so-called "female orgasm” and why someone would fake one.

We go more in-depth on what a real orgasm is and feels like in another article (which you can read here). But for this guide, we’ll talk about what a fake orgasm can be, why people do it, if it’s wrong, and what to do if your partner (or you) are faking it and want to change that.

Oral sex. Cunnilingus. Eating out. Giving head.

Whatever you call it, going down on a person with avulva is an amazing experience for everyone involved—if you do it right. (So for the love of vulvas,please stop drawing the ABC’s with your tongue.)

Good oral sex can make you feel like you have superpowers, whether you’re the giving or receiving partner. Going down on a woman (or person with a vulva) requires finesse. It requires confidence. Most of all, it requires you to understand what you’re doing and why.

Instead of turning oral sex into a spelling bee or guessing game, take a look at our tips for both giving and recieving oral sex, as well as some quotes from both oral sex givers and receivers.

We’re not saying they’re totally fail-proof oral sex tips, but they are fun and sexy, with the potential to produce mind-blowing orgasms!

So, it’s been a while since I’ve done any type of blogging so I forget how to really begin. So I guess I’ll begin with who am I. I am a sexual health researcher, so basically I get to talk about sex all day without people thinking I’ve a (complete) weirdo. I’m also a woman who has stresses, frustrations, good days, bad days, and a sex drive. I use the Lioness in many different aspects of my life and I’m so excited to share my experiences.

Ah, the great, long orgasm battle between man vs woman. One of life’s greatest mysteries of understanding what the opposite sex experiences during an orgasm.

In the past 3 years working on Lioness and talking about the data of orgasms, we get a lot of questions about male vs female orgasms: “How do women orgasm?” "What does an orgasm feel like for women?" “Are orgasms better for men or women?” “Why are women’s orgasms more complicated than men’s?” “Can men use the Lioness?”

For a while, I could only refer to different scientific papers and models which gets overwhelming even for me to fully understand all the schools of thought...

When I first heard about the dosist pens and that they made some specifically for sexy times, the first thought I had was "which one is the best for sex?" That's because I've ended up inadvertently becoming a reviewer of different cannabis products, using my Lioness smart vibrator to see data (paired with subjective opinion) to compare my experiences. It's been quite the rollercoaster, but a very fun one.
