Get feedback from your own, unique body. Discover what you like, dislike, and would like but don't know yet.
It's easy to just go with what works (or what used to work). Get feedback and intuitive visualizations to make it easier and more fun to figure out, "what's next?"
Improve your orgasms, figure out how to make them happen more often, or just have fun seeing how your body reacts to things. We've had people figure out how to reach orgasm, how to have great orgasms, or just how to keep things fresh.
Sex is complicated—and not just from what's in the moment. Therapists recommend sex diaries to discover what affects you. Lioness makes doing that easy.

Revolutionary Technology. World-Class Design.
Before now, the technology we use have never been seen outside of clinical and research settings using equipment that costs thousands of dollars. We've brought the power of that technology and packaged it in a user-friendly form.
We're biased, of course—but as a majority-women team, it was extraordinarily important to us to use the highest quality materials and get all the details right. We set out to make a product we ourselves love. Turns out our customers love it too.
The first and only vibrator designed for the purpose of self-experimentation and improving sexual experience (arousal and orgasm).
World-class design lovingly crafted by a majority-women team—for a product we ourselves love—combined with the most advanced technology available to consumers to track and visualize sexual response.

"Sexuality is multi-faceted, but one of the most important factors is understanding your own body well. Lioness is the only device tailor built to support this purpose."
Sex Researcher at Cornell University
"The fact is, female pleasure has been far more elusive than male pleasure. [Lioness] could provide a service to women by addressing a large gap in the knowledge and practice of female sexuality."

"Beyond the personal power of self-knowledge, the Lioness has the potential to change the field of sex research writ large..."
Use it like you would any rabbit-style vibrator—nothing special needed!
Download the session from the vibrator by syncing on the free app.
(As a rule, all data operations are ONLY triggered by deliberate user actions—like explicitly hitting the sync button here!)
Explore patterns, track sessions with notes and tags. Learning has never been this pleasurable.
Pelvic floor movements (vaginal contractions in women) are the best indicators found in research for arousal and orgasm.
The same kind of sensors you have in your smartphone. Built-in motion sensors let you see how you used the vibrator during you session. (And a lot more cool visualizations are on the way for this!)
Temperature sensors allow for automatically recording triggering and tracking of core body temperature over time

Details matter. As a majority-women team, we constantly tested and refined hundreds of little things that make your (and our) experience better.
Something as personal as sexual preference is always hard—and there's definitely no guarantees around what works for one person, working for everyone. That is, in fact, a big part of why we made this company.
The answer here is hence complicated, but let's try anyway. If at the end of this, we don't answer your specific concern, please do reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
When talking about physical form, it's hard to have "universal vibrator" because everyone has different preferences. However, we weren't trying to make an "ok" product—we were trying to make what may possibly be (if we do say so ourselves) the best rabbit vibrator in the world. As part of this, we've done extensive beta testing with hundreds of women of all demographics and thousands of iterations of the product to make something that works with as many bodies as possible. So, while we have no guarantees, we'll at least lay out what we've done:
While there are some women that enjoy larger sizes, we found in 90%+ of our tests, size did not matter much to most users. In fact, for some women, larger sizes are problematic. Some women found it intimidating. Others, especially older women, have issues related to post-pregnancy and menopause that make larger vibrators a no-go entirely.
Size doesn't matter that much, but we found *angle* definitely does. We have extensive testing for our exact curved angle for the vibrator head, and the "semi-triangular" shape of the clitoral nub to "nestle" and stimulate but not "jab."
And yes, the language is quite vivid because we both had accounts of this during testing and have experienced this ourselves with other products.
There's a very wide variation between women in clitoris to vaginal opening distance. Why does this matter?
Well, if you've ever had a vibrator—especially rabbit-style—that doesn't work, it's likely because the nub isn't hitting the right place. Unfortunately, most of these vibrators have very rigid "arms" for the nub. This means that you can't angle it easily without "jabbing" yourself with the rest of the vibrator.
We got you covered! Once again, this came out both in testing, and has been a personal frustration of some of the founders with past vibrators.
One of the easiest ways to tell that a lot of vibrators are designed by men who have never used the product is to actually use them—you’ll notice most have “barrel-shaped” handled and are designed to be held outwards. Basically, the same direction you’d photograph it for marketing.
We used the product ourselves and also did tons of testing. Our handle “nestles” nicely and “cups” for long solo uses.
With our deep testing pool, we also figured out that older women with arthritis are pretty poorly served by almost all handles. The “nestling” design helps, but we also moved the buttons upwards—because one of the aspects of arthritis is you have to end up putting pressure on different parts of the handle than you normally would to relieve pain. That usually is near the thumb, on TOP of most button placements. We moved it AND put tactile dots so you can know which button is on/off or vibration without looking.
Although people don’t always have the language to describe it, almost all testers have given the feedback that they prefer “rumbly” motors over “buzzy” motors. Think a Hitachi magic wand vs. a small bullet vibrator.
That is caused by “lower frequency” vibrators that are just really hard to replicate with smaller motors—especially the one that counts for a rabbit-style, which is the clitoral nub one. However, we’re smart women engineers and know what we want… so we figured out a way around it.
Our rabbit-style vibrator is one of the only ones with a tungsten motor, vs. a stainless steel one. What does that mean? Well, it’s way denser so it packs a frequency “punch” way beyond its size.
It also can be way stronger on the top-end, which is more often the “unsolvable” issue with vibrators. We have the luxury of software, so we can actually allow the user to infinitely adjust the strengths of their settings, so we can also cater to those who prefer lighter (but still “rumbly”) vibrations.
Finally, to drive this, we put in a way bigger and powerful battery in the shaft, where normally the “second motor” goes. This gives us both power, longer total battery life, and takes away a motor that most people either don’t use at all or only use externally anyway. While we’re sure there’s someone who uses it internally, most women didn’t get much out of “vibrations in my vag.” The angles (see above) matter more for g-spot stimulation.
So are we. At the heart of what we do, we're our own users first as well, and treat your data the same way we'd want our own to be treated. We follow security best practices and consistently keep our systems up-to-date to deal with the latest threats. But all of that just does what we consider the bare minimum and doesn't prevent abuse or misuse of data. Because of our focus on this topic, we have a few core philosophies that we hold regarding data:
Always anonymous. We're a data-based product and company, and the value we provide to users is from that. But not everything provides you value—namely, personally-identifying information (PII). We always fully encrypt our databases, and go above and beyond in fully anonymizing our users, and studiously avoiding collecting PII unless necessary. This is because we realize something a lot of other companies don't. Collecting everything "just in case" rarely ever pays off... but always has a big cost in risk to your privacy. We don't play those games with your data.
Explicit, enthusiastic, informed consent. Related to understanding data is both value but also liability, we don't secretly trawl your entire life in the background. We strive in our design to always be clear what is being collected and, if not obvious, why. Our mindset is if we went through each piece of data we collect, the answer should be an enthusiastic answer yes to what is provided. In fact, we go so far as to build in explicitness even in our UI—your vibrator never sync or secretly sends anything. You MUST explicitly hit the sync button on the app for it to ever communicate. We're not fans of cloak and dagger, not with our intimate products.
Defense-in-depth, minimize attack surface. We're not an old traditional company trying to adapt to the new digital world. Our team are from some of the top technology companies in the world, and we understand the realities of security in this age of cyber threats. We build our systems like a medieval castle—layers upon layers. Although we don't expect it to happen, if our public endpoints are breached, they don't actually hold data. Even if our private networks are breached, our databases are encrypted, and hence gibberish without our private keys. Even if our databases are decrypted, all user data is one-way hashed, so it can't be backed out without a complete user list. But even if OUR servers are hacked, our authentication servers with user lists are NOT kept with us—they at one of the top authentication and security providers in the world. So the hackers now need to go breach them. And so on and so forth. We know being tested in security isn't matter of if, but when, and treat your data as we do our own.
The "right price" is a hard thing to pin down for people. Some users react with "that's really expensive"—especially with the context of $20 bright pink/purple vibrators off of Amazon as comparison. Others, especially those who have bought a lot of sex toys, react with skepticism. "It can't be that low"—because it supposedly has all this other high-tech (and supposedly expensive) stuff but is in a similar ballpark as other high-end vibrators.
Given that, all we can say is our own reasoning. Our vibrator, in contrast to a lot of others on the market, uses extremely high quality materials, from the tightly supply-chain controlled medical-grade silicone, to our specialized tungsten motors, to our high tolerance and quality electrical components that resemble that of early smartphones. We care a lot about the quality of our product, so put the effort into sourcing great (and expensive) materials for it.
Additionally, we offer a long, generous 2-year warranty with lifetime comprehensive support. We stand proudly behind our products. Just ask some of our customers who've received Fedex'ed replacements not just from manufacturing defects, but "extraordinary use" that most companies would find ways to deny a warranty replacement for... but we felt that our engineering should have been able to bear. The replacements usually do.
We unabashedly want to make the world's best product in its class—if nothing else because we are our own heaviest users.
That being said, we still want it to be accessible. We'll be honest here—we almost certainly make less margin on the Lioness than most vibrator companies given the price of what goes into our vibrators and the level of support and updates we provide. But we're a company with a mission, and from our very first crowdfunding campaign until now, our philosophy is that if you make the best product possible and make it available to people, you can change the world and make a great company. Take that as either a fluffy karmic sentiment or "enlightened self-interest" that generating real value is good business, but it's what we believe.

We're all here at Lioness because we care about our customers, and in our own way (corny as it's become), making the world a better place. We always love hearing from people, so don't hesitate to reach out!
Lioness came into being when two women asked a very simple question: Why, in an age where technology has radically transformed almost every facet of our lives, has research and technology for female sexuality seen no advancement in decades?
By creating Lioness, co-founders Liz and Anna sought to give women a tool and a platform to better explore their own bodies and sexuality. Hoping to combat the outdated stigmas around female pleasure, they created the world's first smart vibrator specifically designed for experimenting and learning about their bodies in the comfort of their own homes. Through harnessing technology never before seen outside of research labs, they are giving all individuals the tools to take learning about pleasure, arousal, and orgasm into their own hands.
By using biofeedback technology and the Lioness app, women get what they should have had all along: information about their sexuality; what works, what doesn't, what they might love but haven’t discovered yet.
We've had women who figured out how to have an orgasm and had their first orgasm, others that have figured out how to improve their experiences after major life changes (like post-pregnancy or entering menopause) to have great orgasms again, and yet others who just enjoy learning, experimenting, and constantly keeping things fresh—whether or not they get to have their best orgasm or even have orgasms at all.
(Among lots of others!)
