Pleasure with a Purpose

It's not only, well, pleasurable. Pleasure is also essential for our self-confidence, happy relationships, and even our health.

But what works for one person may be radically different for someone else. Our sense of pleasure is as unique as we are, from foreplay to how we experience orgasms (if we have them). We haven't had many ways of exploring this—until now.

Lioness is a women-led team who's brought together some of the brightest and most rebellious artists and engineers to create new ways of exploring your own unique sexuality.

Our Team

Liz Klinger (CEO)

Liz started out as an artist, then worked at an investment bank in NYC, and then sold sex toys direct to women across the U.S. She quickly learned that many other women like herself also had questions about sex but few places to turn, so she set out to do something about it.

James Wang (CTO)

James is a jack-of-all-trades. Before Lioness, he founded a nonprofit consulting group, built predictive models and systems at the world's largest hedge fund, and planned a public project launch at Google[x].

Anna Lee (VP Engineering)

Anna is a mechanical engineer who specializes in investigating new technologies and bringing them to real products on the market. Most recently, she was at Amazon Lab126 and helped launch the Kindle Voyage and Amazon Dash Button.

Maggie Stiggleman (Software)

After majoring in Gender Studies and Computer Science, Maggie is still basking in the glow of somehow finding a job where she gets to use her knowledge of both. In her spare time, she pinches herself to make sure she’s not dreaming.

Corinne Santoro (Marketing)

When Corinne is not being a marketing extraordinaire, she’s jamming with Bay Area Derby. In a past life, Corinne ran with wolves and danced with lemurs (actually).

Bentley (Dog)

Because every vibrator company needs a wiener dog. Likes long walks on the beach. Does not like large parties or loud noises. Is actually the one in charge at Lioness.


I love myself, and I love my body.
I am smart, strong, and always curious.
I'm not afraid to question convention.
I stand up for myself and others.
I surround myself with love and joy.
I define my own pleasure.
I try to be my best self.
And treat others how I wish to be treated.

This is my next step in my journey of being me.
