Introducing Limon... The Strongest Couples Vibrator

At Minna, we believe there's no single pattern for pleasure. Whether soft and steady or fast and strong, a vibrator should meet your mood. We also believe a vibrator can be as enjoyable for any couple as it is for a single person. That's why we created Limon.

(Remember, if you'd like to surprise someone, you can easily contribute anonymously! And Limon will arrive in discreet, unmarked packaging so you don't have to worry about ruining the surprise when it arrives.)

Limon blends revolutionary technology with the highest level of craftsmanship to create a spontaneous and sexy experience that both individuals and couples can enjoy. Some of the highlights include: 

  • Squeezable control technology: Limon acts as an extension of your body and reacts to your desires - the harder you squeeze, the stronger the vibrations. No more fumbling with buttons or settings. Just an easy way to tease and please your partner or yourself.
  • Unprecedented strength: Limon's unique Rumble Motor Technology makes it the strongest couples vibrator in the world.
  • Customizable memory: Every woman's body is different. Limon's ability to record and replay any pattern lets you have a completely personalized experience every time you pick it up.
  • Unique ergonomic shape: Fits right in your hand for easy squeezing.
  • Completely waterproof: For use or cleaning.
  • Rechargeable battery: Long lasting lithium ion battery.
  • Body-safe materials: 100% phthalate-free, body safe silicone.

User Feedback

User testing is a crucial part of our design process - here's what some early testers had to say about our prototypes:

It's a great addition to our sex life and my wife and I love it! - Josh M.

I love the shape! It fits into my hand so perfectly and it's soooo cute! I could definitely leave it out anywhere. - Elisha K.

It's crazy how strong it is! - Linda A.

Who We Are

Minna was founded by a group of Stanford-trained mechatronics engineers, product designers, and sexperts who shared a frustration with the lack of well-designed, responsive vibrators that could work for couples as well as individuals.

We know that healthy sexuality is fundamental to human happiness and we believe that vibrators should be innovative, thoughtfully designed, and masterfully crafted. Given our background, it is no surprise that our approach to developing products centers around fundamentally innovating on the technology used in vibrators and how they're controlled to create a pleasureable experience that's different every time.

We launched our award-winning first product, Ola, about a year and a half ago and have been thrilled with the response. We've been working hard since then on Limon and are finally ready to bring it to life on a larger scale.

Why Create Limon?

Our core mission at Minna is to improve the way people and couples experience pleasure and intimacy. In developing Limon, we tried to create an approachable, fun product that could accomplish that goal. Its unique form perfectly leverages our squeezable control technology and its exclusive Rumble Motor Technology packs a powerful punch. Put it all together and we think Limon is the best way out there for couples and individuals to explore and enjoy their sexuality.

Why Indiegogo?

Although Limon is our second product, we are still a shoestring operation - our team is just 5 people (only 1 of whom is full time). This means our campaign has two huge benefits:

  1. Help us cover manufacturing costs: making physical objects is expensive! There are a number of up-front capital investment costs that we need to pay for before we can bring Limon to the world.  About 2/3 of the money we need is for tooling such as molds or assembly machines and 1/3 is for parts.
  2. User feedback: we believe passionately in user-centric design and getting the chance to interact with our users to find out what they love. Hearing what makes them tick makes the things we build that much better. We want to hear from you, either via Indiegogo or at customerservice@minnalife.com.

How Can You Help?

We obviously strongly believe that we have created a great product in Limon and hope that it can be a fun part of a healthy lifestyle for many people and couples. Supporting our campaign is your way to be a part of making Limon come to life and to get one of the first units ever made.  

However, the other crucial thing you can do is help build the conversation about intimacy and pleasure. These have historically been taboo subjects but that only prevents people from understanding and improving their well-being and relationships. Take a moment to think about what purpose is served by the lack of dialogue and we hope you'll decide to share our campaign with others and help all of us be more thoughtful and informed about pleasure, health and happiness!

Schedule

Limon is scheduled to begin production immediately following the completion of the Indiegogo campaign in June. We expect first units to be available in November and will fulfill backer rewards with the first possible batch of products. Because we will use our existing supply chain and manufacturing partners, we expect to be able to avoid the delays and hurdles that often crop up when entering production for the first time.
