After months of development and hands-on feedback, we’re proud to reveal Pom, the most important (and most fun) part of your wellness routine. Pom is easy to use, so that you can leave confusion and frustration outside the bedroom. It’s soft, flexible form contours to the shape of your hand and body for an organic experience. It has sensible controls that won’t harsh your Zen, and a motor with plenty of vroom because, well, you know. Pom encourages us to get back in touch with our bodies, our minds, and the uninhibited joy of masturbation.
Your sexuality isn’t just an exciting hobby that hides in your bedroom, locked away until you're ready to enjoy it. It’s a part of your body, and it can influence your overall health. Much in the same way that being sick or hangry can result in lackluster sex, having regular, satisfying orgasms can make you happier, more energetic, and give you a great night’s sleep. Plus, you had all those orgasms. It’s a win-win-win situation.
Unfortunately, we don’t always view masturbation as a path to wellness. Social inhibitions and taboos often prevent us from seeing the health benefits of self-pleasure, or force us to see it through a “naughty,” overly-sexualized lens. When you over-sexualize sex itself, you lose out on the facts, and the fact is, masturbation is good for you!
We saw an opportunity to bring you your next essential wellness tool. People understand the value of having an ergonomic mattress, or using a foam roller, but vulva-havers don’t see vibrators as an important part of their daily or weekly routines. So we started work on Pom, an inviting, satisfying toy that will reliably deliver the workout you want.
We started where we always do: with you! We knew we wanted to make your next go-to masturbation essential, and our Dame Labs community got to work. In February 2017, we polled our community about what they'd like to see in a clitoral vibrator. Then in June, we held a Dame Labs event where we had face-to-face conversations about what masturbation means to you, and heard over and over that self-pleasure is more than just a sexy cherry on top of your week. It’s a vital way for you to stay happy, healthy, and well-rested. That gave us what we needed to move from research to actual development.
Over 1500 people gave us their opinions, and almost 100 testers — of various ages, body types, and orientations — played with our prototypes to help us understand what makes a workhorse vibe, and the result was Pom. It’s not just a toy; it’s a tool that will bring masturbation into the self-care conversation, and back into your daily routine.
