This New Vibrator Could Change How Women Talk About Their Own Sexuality

When you think of items that boost women’s empowerment and self-esteem, you might not immediately think of a vibrator—but the Lioness vibrator is looking to change that. Since launching on Indiegogo on February 9, the product has already received all $50,000 of its desired funding. So what makes this sex toy so unique that everybody is rushing to get behind it?

Lioness has an ergonomic handle, safe materials, battery notifications, a travel lock, and buttons that all feel different—so you know what you’re doing in the dark—but those aren’t its defining features. The most innovative part of this toy isn’t the vibrator itself, but rather the app that comes with it.

Through sensors on the toy that detect motion and temperature, the app can actually tell you what your sexual arousal pattern looks like. Beta testers have used it to track an incredible array of things: their menstrual cycle, when sex feels best for them, how much foreplay they need, and other features of their sexuality that they were always curious about but didn’t know how to discover.

The company’s cofounder and CEO, Liz Klinger, spoke with us about how the idea for Lioness first struck her and the process of creating the toy and app.

Glamour: How did you become interested in helping women learn about their bodies?

Liz Klinger: To be honest, at first, I was helping myself. I came from a more conservative upbringing where sex just wasn’t talked about. The lack of information and stigma around the topic made me curious to learn more.

Over time, I started to talk to friends and then did things like Tupperware-style parties selling intimacy products, and then I realized that I wasn’t the only one who felt uncertain and had questions about sex. Many, many other women had questions, from all backgrounds and ages.

Because of the taboo, there are very few opportunities where people feel comfortable asking questions about their own sexual preferences—it’s not something you just talk about casually during dinnertime, but certain questions don’t feel right asking the gynecologist, either. But they’re questions, often about your own body, that you want a way to start answering so you can start a conversation with yourself, a partner, or both.
