Our Story

Lora DiCarlo was founded in 2017. Our premier device was inspired by the experience and persistence of our founder and CEO, Lora Haddock, and developed in partnership with Oregon State University's Robotics & Engineering Lab.

We quickly found success and international attention after receiving a coveted robotics innovation award from the Consumer Technology Association. When the award was rescinded, a critical public conversation about gender equity in tech was initiated and our company has continued to champion the cause of women's sexual health.

Our Mission

To create a sexually equitable world where all genders and sexualities are met with innovative and thoughtful tools to serve on their path to pleasure. We strive to assemble diverse minds to create products that work in parity with diverse desires, preferences, and anatomy.

Lora DiCarlo CEO

Our Founder & CEO

I see a world where sexual stigma and shame are erased and gender equity and empowerment are embraced.

Human anatomy fascinates me. When I had the holy grail of orgasms — a blended orgasm, all I could think was, how can I do that again? There was nothing on the market that spoke to female and vaginal physiology. In 2017, after leaving medical school to design a way to produce the perfect orgasm, I founded Lora DiCarlo and introduced the world to sex tech inspired by human movement.

I believe everyone has the right to explore their sexual pleasure.


Our team

We are a team of women, men, non-binary, gender non-conforming, straight, and LGBTQ+ folks dedicated to vocally claiming our space in pleasure and tech, creating products that we joyfully use ourselves.
