What Lioness Means to Me - A Series

What Lioness Means to Me - a blog series about the Lioness Smart Vibrator

In a world where masturbation for people with vaginas is still taboo, it’s so important to be able to make space for the learning, exploration, and fun Liz and Anna had in mind when they developed the Lioness Smart Vibrator.

This is why we came up with the “What Lioness Means to Me” blog series. We want to be able to go a step beyond Lioness Vibrator reviews. We want to highlight the Lioness’s capabilities while giving all of those in our Pride the chance to speak for themselves.

Below is the first in our series, a submission from Rachael. Rachael is a mom, a woman with a Ph.D., a college professor, and a self-proclaimed Lioness enthusiast. Check out her story below:

My Love/Hate Relationship with Femtech

My love/hate relationship with Femtech

Femtech is a weird category. While it has raised awareness in the mainstream consciousness about a number of issues related to women’s health, the term is not without its underlying problems.

Here, I will speak about it as the Co-founder and CEO of Lioness, a sexual wellness company that created a biofeedback vibrator that helps people learn more about their own bodies and pleasure. I started Lioness in 2013, a few years before the term Femtech was in the general conversation, and can share a bit about how the rise of this term has influenced investment and media over the years.

Maintaining Intimacy Through Grief

Lioness sex guides - Memorial Day Flags

Outside of the military community, Memorial Day is generally pretty sexy. Bikinis, beer and barbecues; steaks, sunscreen, and swimming pools. It’s a day many civilians look forward to.

Inside the military community, however, things can look and feel a bit different. For a military spouse, it’s often a day where we anticipate our service member needing more love than they give. It’s a day when we know they’re going to be thinking of all the people they’ve loved and lost - people they’ve endured everything with, from boot camp to wars. 

This begs the question; how do you maintain intimacy with something like death and loss hanging heavy in the air? The answer is so simple, it may surprise you!

How to Share Sexual Fantasies with Your Partner

Tips & tricks for how to talk to your partner about your sexual fantasies and theirs

In the world of sex, fetishes and fantasies are often viewed as taboo. While you can lean toward science and studies to tell you that they’re not actually that uncommon, chances are you’ve got the best possible person to share your sexual fantasies with; your partner.

Still, figuring out how to share your sexual fantasies with someone may seem difficult at first. If you’ve never approached the subject, you may be unsure of what to ask, how to ask it, and how to react.

Fortunately, we’ve compiled a simple list of tips and tricks for how to talk to your partner about your sexual fantasies and theirs.

Tips & Tricks for Better Blow Jobs

Dos & don’ts for better blow jobs
In a recent article listing blow job dos and don’ts, I said there’s no step-by-step recipe to the perfect blow job and I stand by my words.

As a sex writer who spends a good portion of my time writing guides and advice pieces for better sex, I’m often conflicted because there’s never just one good way to do anything.

There are ways. Plural.

Blow jobs are no different; they can be quick and dirty, a surprise, warm-up, or foreplay. But, if you want to take it up a notch and give the crème de la crème of blow jobs—no pun intended—I recommend the following tips:

Blow Job Do's & Don’ts

How to give a good blow job

How to Give a Better Blow Job

If I could give you a step-by-step recipe to the perfect blowjob, I would, but unfortunately, there’s no such thing. Since preferences and sensitivities vary from person to person, and sometimes even from one day to the next, there’s no ‘go-to-procedure’ for all. 

Fortunately, if you’re wondering how to give a good blow job, there are a few dos and don’t that separate the bad from the good, and the good from the outstanding.

Everything You Need to Know About Queefing

Everything You Need to Know About Queefing

Farting is one of those things we all do, but society seems to tell us we “shouldn't” fart. If we happen to pass gas in front of other people, it can often induce embarrassment and frantic looking around, hoping nobody suspects it was us. But it's a completely natural and common occurrence to fart.

It's the same thing with vaginal farts, otherwise known as “queefing,” but these usually happen in front of a much smaller crowd. When a person queefs during sex, it can leave them mortified and negatively impact their pleasure — even if their partner(s) doesn't seem to care.

What is ASMR?

What is ASMR?

I’d never heard of ASMR before 2018, but I have several friends who swear they experience it and that watching certain videos helps them deal with their intense insomnia. One such friend went out of town with me, and late at night in our hotel room, she turned on a video of a woman whispering and watched it until she drifted off to sleep. This seemed not all that strange to me, almost like listening to a guided meditation.  

But ASMR is much more than a desire to listen to someone whispering.

Sex, Intimacy, and Coronavirus: What We Know Right Now

Sex, Intimacy, and Coronavirus: What We Know Right Now

The declaration of COVID-19, a.k.a. coronavirus, as a pandemic has everyone stocking up on canned goods and toilet paper. Almost 1,235,199 cases have been reported worldwide, with close to 277,205 cases reported in the United States as of April 4th, 2020.

As more people self-quarantine, work from home, and distance themselves in other ways in order to try to avoid catching COVID-19, it's inevitable that at least some of us are thinking about copulating. (It's a natural human urge, after all.) But is it OK to have sex right now?
