We’re joined by entrepreneur, Lora Haddock, the founder of pleasure tech company Lora DiCarlo. Her sex toy, the Osé is coming out this fall and promises to deliver a blended orgasm. We talk about how she got into designing pleasure tech, bad sex toys we’ve had the misfortune to know, and why CES gave her team a robots award and then took it away (spoiler alert: they’re sexist dickheads).
You can sign up for updates to be one of the first to purchase the Osé HERE.

WAYS TO LISTEN
Some highlights from our conversation include:
- All about their brand new sex toy, the Osé–what it does, why it’s different from anything we’ve seen in the past, and why we want one!
- How it uses “biomimicry” to simulate the touch of a partner instead of vibrating.
- How it’s revolutionary to have focused on female anatomy when designing a new product.
- How she came up with the idea (hint: it may have been from a mind blowing orgasm…)
- Some of our hilariously bad #sextoyfails from over the years
- What their design and development process looks like
- Why Sarah and Jenny would very much like to be beta testers for Lora DiCarlo.
- “We’re creating a sex toy that destigmatizes the conversation around sex and masturbation.”
- How they won a CES Award for innovation in robots–and then they took it back and wouldn’t let them exhibit at the trade show. Because reasons (misogyny, sexism, and idiocy…)
