    As someone who creates smart sex toys for a living, I look at a lot of different sex toys for my job. Ok, I don’t just do it for my job. I also do it for fun. After all, why would I be in this business otherwise if I didn’t find other sex toys interesting? When it comes to shopping for sex toys, sometimes you don’t see quite what you want in the sex shops. You might want something colorful or just plain different. Let me introduce you to custom made dildos. Many artisans and small teams create them, and I’m going to tell you about what’s out there and some of my favorites. More

  • Double Your Pleasure With Mutual Masturbation
    by Lioness Team on July 21, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    A Swedish proverb says that shared joy is double joy, and that is certainly true for mutual masturbation. Whether you make it foreplay in close contact or the main course with long-distance partners, add a sex toy or two, explore kink and other role-play scenarios, it’s a versatile act with the potential to be so much more than a quick, side-by-side wank.

  • The Orgasm Gap: Why It Exists And How To Close It
    by Liz Klinger on June 30, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    The orgasm gap is simply the difference in frequency of orgasm between men and women. (Stay with me; I know the heteronormativity isn’t ideal but, until recently, most studies mainly surveyed cisgender men and women, many who identified as heterosexual. We’re going to discuss a study that compares the orgasm gap between LGBTQ+ individuals a bit later in this article, too!)More

  • Pain for pleasure: How using nipple clamps, pinwheels and whips affect my orgasms
    by Lioness Team on May 26, 2021 at 4:00 pm

    Scientific studies show that pain and pleasure are processed in the same area of the brain. The ventral tegmental area becomes electrified when we feel pleasure from instant gratification or long-term personal development — think orgasms (instant) or learning a new language (long-term). When this area lights up, dopamine is released throughout the body.More

  • After getting an IUD, my orgasms are more intense
    by Lioness Team on May 20, 2021 at 7:00 am

    Photo by @charlesdeluvio on Unsplash By Leo Aquino An intrauterine device (IUD) is a t-shaped device that gets inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. Even though the initial insertion process can be uncomfortable, those who have one don’t have to worry about getting pregnant for 3-7 years. No pills, no rings, no injections — with an IUD, you can just set it and forget it. People’s stories about what happens to their sex lives after getting an IUD are totally different. In private Facebook groups for people with vaginas (women, trans, and gender non-conforming people), I’ve read stories about painful sex months after an IUD insertion. I’ve also read articles from reputable magazines where writers share that an IUD improved their sex lives. When it was time for me to get my second IUD inserted, I wondered how my orgasms would change. I grabbed my trusty Lioness Vibrator to see what I could find. Orgasms without an IUD: I had an IUD for four years, from 2015-2019. The experience of getting the device put in was jarring, but 3.5+ years without a period was blissful. At the time, I was still having protected sex with men, and having an IUD made me feel so much more confident. I enjoyed lots and lots of sex — rough sex, queer sex, kinky sex, casual sex, romantic sex, spiritual sex, multiple-orgasms-over-a-four-day-weekend sex. I decided to take the IUD out because I considered having children with my partner at the time. As much as I love the idea of being pregnant, I had a really hard time adjusting to the change in hormone levels after my IUD was taken out. My period came back with full force, which was really triggering; I experienced more gender dysphoria, the feeling that my gender identity didn’t match my body, after the IUD was taken out. Masturbating with the Lioness Vibrator was one of my saving graces during this time. I felt a little bit disconnected from my vagina, but I could always find ways to reconnect through pleasure. My sessions weren’t the same as before, which made sense because I am undergoing a radical transformation. But having an orgasm feels like the thread that connects my past, present, and future selves. Without an IUD, I noticed that my sessions were shorter. There would be a little bit of pressure at the beginning of the session, then my vaginal muscles would ease up and let me build up to have an orgasm. I also noticed that I was uncomfortable with going too deep, which is totally different than my previous sex history. Orgasms with an IUD: I was dreading the sensation of weirdly-shaped metal instruments inside my cervix. (I mean, tbh, who doesn’t dread that sensation!?) But I knew it was time to get the IUD re-inserted for the sake of my mental health. I chose the Mirena IUD because it’s the same kind that stopped my periods before. The first few weeks were pretty rough. I experienced a lot of pain, and it took a while for my body to get used to this new hormone again. During the few times that I tried to masturbate, I felt really sore. I tried having clitoral orgasms, but afterward, it just felt like I was punched in the stomach. But now, nearly three months after the IUD was inserted, I feel like my old self again. My sessions are longer and I have more stamina. I feel really confident and in touch with my vagina again. I don’t know what kind of chemical voodoo Mirena cooked up in these devices, but these orgasms are next-level. Where do I send my all-caps thank you note!? I could go deep again — hallelujah! — and my sessions became longer, with more of a build-up and a higher tolerance for multiple orgasms. My cervix was more sensitive, which allowed me to have stronger cervical orgasms. My orgasms were so much more intense than ever before, and I felt really connected to my body. In the past, I leaned on my sexuality as my main form of self-care and stress relief. During the pandemic, I learned how to incorporate other forms of self-care into my daily routine so that sex, especially self-play, could be more enjoyable. Less four-day-weekend-sexcapades and more thank-you-for-surviving-a-global-pandemic, tender, wholesome, gentle type of orgasms.  Be open to change Personally, I’ve seen a very positive change in my sex life ever since my IUD insertion. My orgasms are longer. I am able to use deeper penetration and tap into the magical powers of the cervical orgasm. I feel more connected with my body. Whatever your reasons may be for getting an IUD, your sex life might be different. It’s important to strike a balance between knowing your own preferences while still keeping an open mind for new positions or moves to accommodate this new thing that gets to hang out in your uterus for a few years. It’s time to visualize your pleasure. Check out the Lioness Smart Vibrator! Lioness is the first and only vibrator that helps you improve your orgasms. The world’s most advanced vibrator. Precision sensors let you literally see your arousal and orgasm. Experiment, understand yourself, and have better orgasms—after all, as the saying goes, “never measured, never improved.” Click here to learn more about the Lioness.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

    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?
