I came from a more conservative, Midwestern upbringing where sex just wasn't talked about.
When I sold intimacy products to women from all walks of life, I realized that I was far from the only one who felt uncertain and had questions about sex. I realized we need to overturn the taboos and stigmas around female sexuality.
That's why we founded Lioness.See the Vibrator
Revolutionary technology made user-friendly
The vibrator can be used on its own, but syncing the vibrator gives the full experience. To see your sexual response and orgasm, pair with the complimentary Lioness app to explore more.
Become an expert in your sexuality in 3 easy steps:
A look into our biofeedback technology
We perfected every detail of the technology, design, and materials for over half a decade. The result? The world's first smart vibrator specifically designed for experimenting and learning from the comfort of your own home.
Through harnessing technology never before seen outside of research labs, you now have the tools to take learning about your pleasure into your own hands.
Senses your pelvic floor contractions—signs of arousal and orgasm.
Signals the start of a masturbation session
Speeds and angles to learn your pace and style
The Lioness uses these sensors to map out your arousal and orgasm.
Learning, exploring, and igniting curiosity
A lot has changed about the world since the 1980s, but our understanding of female sexuality has not significantly advanced from that era. Together, we’re hoping to change that with Lioness.
Even at this early stage, our customers have reported that they understand their sex drive better and have become more curious—with feedback from the vibrator’s vaginal contraction and positioning sensors, they can try things and immediately see how their body reacts.
- Visualize your pleasure: Use Lioness like a normal vibrator, then link it to your smartphone to see what your orgasm or session looks like.
- Experiment and see changes over time: Use the app like a personal diary to write notes about each experience, so over time you can start seeing how your pleasure changes from a variety of factors such as stress, stimulants (wine, coffee, medication), sleep (or lack of), or anything else you think might affect your sex drive and response.
- Your data, your rules: Data and privacy-wise, everything is encrypted and we fully anonymize the data—internally we don’t even know who is who. Our guiding principle is that we treat your data the same way we would want our own to be treated. Click here to learn more about our stance on privacy and security.
Backed by Medical Professionals and Researchers
We work with doctors, therapists, and researchers and base Lioness technology and innovation on the best past literature available. We're proud to have gotten extremely positive responses from researchers and are dedicated to helping them do their necessary but often neglected work.
"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."
— Dr. Michael Krychman, board-certified OBGYN, clinical sexual counselor, and Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship
"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."
— Sarah Merrill, Sex Researcher at Cornell University
"Beyond the personal power of self-knowledge, the Lioness has the potential to change the field of sex research writ large. Most studies of female sexual response involve a relatively small number of participants for a short amount of time... By creating a system through which Lioness users could opt in to having their personal data anonymously collected and aggregated, Klinger and her collaborators can provide researchers like Chivers with a far more robust data set than they've ever been able to create or access before."
