• How My Orgasms Changed After One Month on Testosterone
    by Lioness Team on April 6, 2021 at 2:35 am

    Studies have shown that testosterone is associated with new sexual behaviors, changes in sexual attraction, and increased frequency of sexual activity among trans men2. Translation: while on testosterone, sex changes radically and sex drive is through the roof.More

  • How to Pick the Best Sex Machine for Your Body
    by Liz Klinger on January 29, 2021 at 7:30 am

    What exactly *is* a sex machine, anyway? You could argue that vibrators or anything with some sort of electronics is a fuck machine…after all, our Lioness Vibrator is a sex toy built more like an early iPhone inside with a multilayer board and an array of sensors so you can track your every whim and desire. Are basic vibes with on/off switches or more technologically advanced ones like the Lioness also considered machines?More

  • Am I Weird if I Fantasize About BDSM?—Answers with Real Data
    by James Wang on January 29, 2021 at 7:00 am

    “I like BDSM. I like bondage. I have a fetish sometimes around dominance situations as the one dominated or dominant. Am I weird? Am I broken? Am I a sick person? Is BDSM morally wrong?” Your questions answered with real studies on the topic.More

  • How to Choose the Best Clit or Pussy Pump For Your Body
    by Liz Klinger on January 29, 2021 at 6:00 am

    A clitoris pump (also colloquially known as a clit pump, pussy pump, or clit sucking toys) is a device that you place over your clitoris (and sometimes vulva) that provides clitoral stimulation via a cunnilingus-like sensation. Its purpose is to enhance sexual arousal and pleasure, add additional stimulation, and depending on the toy, potentially bring the person using it to orgasm.More

  • Anal Lube: It Does A Booty Good. Our Comprehensive Guide!
    by Anna Lee on January 29, 2021 at 5:30 am

    Fun sex is safe sex. When it comes to anal sex, using butt plugs or beads (including the Lioness Smart Vibrator), or doing any sort of anal play, having a great anal lubricant on hand can make or break the experience. We’ll go over why a good lubricant is essential for fun and safe anal play, what we recommend as well as common things to avoid.More

  • Am I Frigid? History, Science, and Real Talk
    by James Wang on January 28, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Frigid. It’s a term that’s somehow gained a feeling of medical significance despite never having any formal definition at all. Here, we explore what it REALLY is, how it came to be, and what relevance it has to us today.More

  • Combatting Sexual Racism with Anti-Racist Relationships
    by Lioness Team on January 26, 2021 at 2:15 am

    In the days since the worldwide Black Lives Matter protests began in the spring, we have been finding ways to heal and be better, slowly but surely. We’ve transformed our anger into action. We joined book clubs to learn more about racial justice. We’ve initiated difficult conversations about race in our own communities. We voted a problematic president out of the White House. But one area of racial justice that’s often overlooked is right in the center of our homes: the bedroom. More

  • Choosing the best sex lube for your awesome body
    by Liz Klinger on January 19, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Lube gets a lot of unnecessary flack. Even though research has shown that 65.5 percent of women and 70 percent of men have used commercial lubricants, there are still many folks who have the attitude that if you are sexually lacking if you need to use additional lubrication. Short of me saying those people are flat out wrong, here’s the thing — lubrication isn’t just for people who lack natural moisture. As Vice aptly states, “having high-quality lube is kind of like putting high-quality gas in your car: Everything runs a lot better.” We’ll talk about FAQs, considerations, and even provide recommendations to help get you started.More

  • A Brief History Of Sex Toys for Vaginas
    by Lioness Team on January 14, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    Vibrators, clit stimulators, Magic Wands, nipple clamps and cock rings are getting us through this wild slice of history.  We talk freely about the role that masturbation plays in our everyday lives, but it hasn’t always been that way. From the Victorian era (1800s) until the 1970’s, it was fairly taboo to talk about masturbation. From the 1920’s to the 1950’s, sex toys were marketed as household appliances or self-massagers, even though it was common knowledge that these products were used for sexual pleasure. As a tribute to the sex toy legends that paved the way for our Lioness Vibrators, we’ve put together a list of noteworthy sex toys throughout history.More

  • How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed our sex lives?
    by Liz Klinger on January 11, 2021 at 8:00 am

    It’s no question that the pandemic has upended our lives in every way imaginable, but what impact did it have on our sex and masturbation habits? While a number of stories in the media may lead you to believe that everyone is buying more sex toys and having more sex, we have evidence that those bedrooms are not actually that buzzy. Sure, many of us are spending more time at home. But we think there are some very real implications from living through these unprecedented times. The takeaway? COVID sex and its alleged sex toy boom is an ambiguous conclusion at best. Using Lioness Vibrator product usage as our guide, we’ve observed far more convincing evidence of a significant drop-off in masturbation frequency as the year wore on relative to 2019 for the same users. We looked at anonymous aggregate usage statistics from 1879 Lioness users who were active in 2019 and 2020 and nearly 40,000 sessions recorded from January 1, 2019 through December 12, 2020. There were 19,578 total sessions in 2019 and 19,481 total sessions in 2020*. We supplemented this data with a user survey to better understand what’s going on from a qualitative perspective. This report is not only the world’s largest physiological data set on sexual behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s also the world’s biggest study done on real world, in-the-bedroom-where-sex-happens sex (rather than in the confines of a research laboratory) in general!More

  • How Masturbation Helped Me Heal From Sexual Trauma
    by Lioness Team on January 8, 2021 at 12:00 am

    I am a survivor of rape. After it happened, I felt like something precious had been stolen from me.  I isolated myself from my friends and loved ones. I struggled with low self-esteem and found myself trapped in an abusive relationship. Worst of all, I felt like I couldn’t trust my body anymore.  My body froze completely underneath my assailant, and I couldn’t forgive myself for staying quiet. Being sexually assaulted changed my life, but I can’t let that define who I am. I learned that there’s no correct way to respond to something so horrible and that I should thank my body for surviving. More

  • Find the Best Dildo: A Practical Guide
    by Liz Klinger on January 4, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Welcome to the world of dildos! If you can imagine a color and a shape, it probably exists somewhere out there. As someone who’s worked in the space for years and has practically become a dildo dutchess in the world of sex toys, I’ve learned a thing or two about our (mostly) rubbery friends. Although I primarily make vibrators for my day job (and yes, it is a pretty great job), I think dildos are highly underrated because there are so many different kinds out there that offer a variety of experiences.More

  • I Found The Best Quiet Vibrators By Measuring Their Sound Levels
    by Anna Lee on December 30, 2020 at 7:15 am

    I’ve lived with roommates for almost 10 years of my life. This means when I’m trying to have some fun solo-time, I need quiet vibrators that won’t wake up my entire house and kill me of embarrassment. Finding quiet, silent vibrators are especially difficult if you’re shopping online because all you have to go by are pictures. Well, I totally know the feeling and I want to help you!More

  • How attachment styles affect your sex life and relationships
    by Lioness Team on December 19, 2020 at 12:42 am

    You might have heard terms like “daddy issues,” “thirsty,” or “dramatic” to describe the behavior of women and femmes who face difficulties with unhealthy relationships and sexual patterns. Attachment theory—the study of how childhood attachment patterns affect how we act in adult relationships—can help explain some of these patterns, no slut-shaming undertone required. Maybe you’re a serial monogamist trying to see what the wild world of casual dating has to offer. Maybe you find yourself constantly chasing emotionally unavailable people. Maybe you can’t figure out why you can’t stop texting bae 85 times in a row when you’re upset. When you’re ready to break out of a pattern that no longer serves you, attachment theory can help you make sense of intense emotions and impulses.More

  • The Art of Breathing: Using Breathing Exercises For Better Sex
    by Lioness Team on December 14, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    When we think about achieving a mind-blowing orgasm, we often imagine our favorite positions and fantasies, or perhaps a session with the Lioness Smart Vibrator. But do you ever stop to think about how breathing affects your orgasms? Breathing is a natural body function, so it’s easy to overlook. It happens without thinking, so why think about it? The truth is, introducing simple breathing techniques into the bedroom can help ignite new feelings of pleasure that can result in a more powerful orgasm.More

  • 8 Ways to Celebrate Consent in Your Everyday Life
    by Lioness Team on December 9, 2020 at 3:42 am

    Ever since Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace, the word consent has been the center of heated debates in mainstream media. The definition of sexual consent may seem like common sense, but the experience of giving consent is actually pretty layered. But what is the definition of consent? More

  • Sex and Self Confidence; 6 Lessons to Learn at Sex Parties
    by Lioness Team on November 30, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    Last summer, after my last relationship ended, a friend encouraged me to revel in my newfound freedom by going to sex parties. Yup, those are what they sound like — parties for sex.  But for me, they were much more than that. They were places for me to meet sex-positive people, overcome shame, and get to know my sexuality.  Over the course of the past year or so, I’ve attended upwards of a dozen sex parties, which put me on an emotional journey that ultimately increased my confidence, openness, and willingness to take risks.  Here are a few lessons I’ve learned along the way that have helped me progress in my sex life and my life overall.More

  • Everything You Need to Know About IUDs
    by Lioness Team on November 26, 2020 at 2:21 am

    An intrauterine device (IUD) is a T-shaped device placed in the uterus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. They are over 99% effective, making them the most effective contraceptive method out there compared to the pill, condoms, and others. With a pill, or other forms of contraceptives, there’s a huge margin of error because you might forget to take it or use it incorrectly. With an IUD, on the other hand, you can just set it and forget it.More

  • Leave it alone!: 3 Tips to Clean Your Vagina the Healthy Way
    by Lioness Team on November 25, 2020 at 1:53 am

    Your vagina works hard for you and sometimes it needs to breathe. Things like scrubbing your vagina with soap and shaving every single day is not only annoying for you, but potentially unhealthy for your vulva and vagina! Remember, your vagina is your BFF. How would you treat them after a hard day’s work? We’re not saying you can’t shave or wash down there every day. You can even stay unshaven! We’re simply saying to take a moment to consider whether you’re promoting your vaginal health or not.More

  • How to Get Out of a Quarantine Sex Slump
    by Lioness Team on November 14, 2020 at 12:12 am

    Feel like your sex life’s been a bit lacking lately (if not outright nonexistent)? Yeah, that’s kind of a thing right now.  In a survey by the app Mentimeter and relationship therapist Vienna Pharaon, 36% of people in the U.S. and Europe said the spark between them and their partners has dwindled since quarantine, and 41% were having less sex.  Anyone else surprised those numbers aren’t higher? The reason this is happening is fairly simple: People’s libidos drop when they’re under stress, says MFT and sex therapist Indigo Stray Conger, LMFT, CST.More

  • How To Have The Best Orgasm? Examples, Data, And Charts Of Real Orgasms
    by Liz Klinger on November 10, 2020 at 4:30 am

    One of the more common questions we get from people about our experience at Lioness is if we’ve found a particular quality that gets you the so-called best orgasm ever. This is sometimes asked in a couple different ways, such as whether having a more intense orgasm is better, if a faster orgasm (under a minute! 30 seconds!) is better, or even whether a “super” orgasm is better. Or any <insert the blank> quality, for that matter … Let’s look at real examples of strong/fast/slow/long/quick orgasms from people I’ve asked who have the Lioness Vibrator, a vibrator and app that can actually show you your own arousal and orgasm. (Confused? You’ll see in a minute.)More

  • Crave Vesper Makes Me Feel Fancy While Having Orgasms
    by Liz Klinger on November 6, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    When experimenting with Lioness, I’ve sometimes given the suggestion of trying different sensations with different external stimulators, using the Lioness more a measurement tool by keeping the vibration off using the customizable vibration settings. This is an example of what I mean — here, I’ll use the Vesper while using the Lioness’s biofeedback technology to show arousal and orgasm. This is my second in a series, the first being the Zumio.More
