Here, Women Come First

By women, for women (and the people who love them), we are committed to normalizing rest and pleasure. 

On a Mission

We are on a mission to slow it down. We believe in taking time for what matters most: self love, meaningful relationships, simple pleasures, and deep intimacy.

With a Vision

We are cultivating a more connected world by making it more comfortable to access intimacy and sexual wellness offerings. Defined by comfort and beauty, we imagine a world where more people feel free to live fuller expressions of themselves by taking time for rest, connection and pleasure.

How We Started

We often get asked how the idea of Linger came to be. It's a long story, and we've yet to figure out a quick and quippy way of sharing it in a 90-second-or-less elevator pitch format. But we're okay with that. Because, around here, we like it slow.

So, if you have the time, and you're interested in knowing... here's the story.

In a World of Fast, We Like it Slow

So often, the world tells women to:

Go. Go. Go.

Give. Give. Give.

Improve. Impress. Inspire.

Do it all. Juggle it all. Give it your all.

Be strong. Be fierce. Be a role model. 

Change your hair. Change your life. Change the world.

Move your body. Move that appointment. Move those mountains.

Don't give up. Don't let yourself go. Don't forget the dry shampoo.

Optimize. Optimize. Optimize.

In our ever-accelerating pace of modern life, it's easy to get caught up in the cult of the Hustle and lose sight of what matters most, but maybe, we're focusing on the wrong kind of grind...

Maybe, its time to feel good. 

Maybe, its time women came first.

In a world of fast, we like it slow.
