The smart vibrator — which was once just an idea between two UC Berkeley engineers — is now a reality. The Lioness vibrator is the adult toy that is changing the game. Through data analysis, it’ll track how you achieve your big O and give you tips on improving your pleasure. By tracking your orgasms, it helps you better understand your body, leading to ultimate satisfaction. Here’s what you need to know about this new bedroom toy.

Public support. After surpassing its fundraising goal of $50,000 on Indiegogo and gaining 325 backers, the Lioness vibrator is now happening! Liz Klinger, the CEO and co-founder of Lioness says that Lioness will teach you more about your own body, allowing communication with your partner like never before thanks to its intuitive design.

How it works. By using embedded sensors, Lioness measure indicators of arousal and orgasm through things like vaginal contractions, body temperature and so on. The more you play with Lioness, the more you learn about your own sexual health and pleasure… all on your own terms!

What makes it different? Lioness seeks to break the patterns we create when we masturbate or have sex. We repeat the things we enjoy because they seem reliable, but that leads to boredom. This vibrator provides feedback and recommendations on what else you should try, based on how you climax other times.

Another smart app. By syncing Lioness with your phone, the data (from up to 20 sessions) will be recorded and show you a variety of things like, when on your cycle you’re the most aroused, how much foreplay you’re likely to need and more. The Lioness team intends to continue conducting research or orgasm habits in order to maximize your pleasure.

Lioness’s mission. The team wrote on its Indiegogo page, “Ultimately, our mission is to empower women to learn more about their own bodies and to break longstanding taboos around female sexuality. Now, we’re looking for your support to make this happen and help us grow as a company to bring more thoughtful, innovative women’s health products to the world!” And support they got — Lioness reached 100 percent funding in less than four days.

 

An anonymous sexual community. With this data in hand, you can reach out to the Lioness community and ask your peers and sexual health experts questions you would otherwise be too embarrassed to ask, all in the sanctity of your own home.

More features. Users can share Lioness with a partne. The device has app-adjustable vibration strength, a low battery warning straight from your phone, and a travel lock. The ergonomic handle combined with the flexible nub conforms to you for the ideal experience. Lioness is 100 percent safe, rechargeable and water resistant.

Lioness has already received acclaim. Mic, Marie Claire, BuzzFeed, Forbes and more are raving about the newest toy on the market. Sarah Merill, a sex research at Cornell University says, “The fact is, female pleasure has been far more elusive than male pleasure. This product could provide a service to women by addressing a large gap in the knowledge and practice of female sexuality.”

The design process. The women-fronted team ran hundreds of hand studies to figure out what fit the most comfortably in the palm of a woman’s hand, as well as in her, well, vagina. Hundreds of concepts, illustrations and beta testers were involved in the process.

The finishing touches. Once they started understanding the general principles and dimensions of their design, they took it to the next level by recruiting veteran designer Hoang Nguyen, former Principal at Matter Design, co-owner of Creative Session and Design Lead at Playground Global.

Is it worth it? The retail price of the Lioness vibrator is $230 and it comes in a single color, which is pebble gray. Lioness plans on making the vibrator available for international orders.

What kind of lube can I use with it? A water-based lube is your safest bet with this toy. The team has tested most lubricant, but the formulations are too varied for them to be 100 percent certain about every lube on the market. The Lioness team recommends testing out any non-water-based lubes on the silicone handle before using it.

How long is the battery life? You can get 45 minutes of continuous run on this bad boy with the motor on full blast. You can charge up your toy between once a week or once every other week for optimal results.

Is my data private? The Lioness team believes your privacy and security are the more important piece to this sexy puzzle. Everything is encrypted and all of the data is full anonymized.

When will the Lioness be on shelves? You can expect the Lioness to be available in stores sometime in September. If you want to back the product on Indiegogo, you will receive your toy six to eight months after the campaign ends.
