Historically, female sexuality has been stigmatized and shamed. It’s seen as something dirty, to be hidden. In many places, that’s still the case today.

Artgasm brings female sexuality into the open as something beautiful to be celebrated. This digital art piece visualizes the physiological experience of female pleasure from anonymous volunteers using the Lioness, a smart vibrator with biofeedback sensors.

The circle reflects vaginal contractions, the patterned lines capture a user’s amount of motion, the background noise shows the vibrator motor intensity, and the color is the orgasm pattern (a particular pattern of pelvic floor/vaginal squeezes).
