The modern axiom is true: there’s an app for everything. Have a question about pleasure or intimacy? Need some inspo for your next solo session? Before you head to Google, try one of these women-founded sex apps that offer everything from instructional talks to erotic stories to guided meditations. Blending the latest tech with the expertise of psychologists, sexperts, and erotic writers, these picks are feminist, inclusive, and—most importantly—they focus on women’s pleasure.

emjoy sq 03a04Emjoy
From sexy audio stories to guided talks and meditations, this app—which focuses on pleasure, sexual health, mental health, and the ways in which all three overlap—has a little bit of everything. After listening to an audio guide on a subject like staying present during sex, figuring out what you’re into, or combatting orgasm anxiety, you can turn to Emjoy’s library of sexy stories to wind down. Not sure where to begin? You can also answer questions about your sex drive, preferences, and hang-ups to get personalized recommendations. All content is overseen by an in-house sex therapist and menstrual therapist, and a lot of it is available for free. For $19.99 a year, you can access everything the app has to offer.

dipsea sq 7cdc4Dipsea
Founded by two friends who wanted to take a mind-first approach to sex, Dipsea boasts a library of over 200 erotic audio stories, with new additions each week. You can sort through stories by gender, kink, relationship, and steam level. In some, actors describe erotic situations; in others, you can listen to a couple (or trio) get it on. Notably, Dipsea has an extensive selection of stories for queer users, including clips specifically geared towards trans and nonbinary listeners. Subscribe for $47.99 a year or download the app to access a small selection of stories for free.
ferly sq 0ab52Ferly
Ferly’s goal is to help you figure out what sex means for you. The app’s audio guides will walk you through exploring your own body, experimenting with clit play, strengthening your pelvic floor, and more. There are also specific exercises for couples, a library of guided masturbation sessions, and podcasts, all led by experts, on everything from period sex to types of non-monogamy. If you struggle with making time for yourself, Ferly also lets users set weekly reminders to devote some time to the app. This one is completely free, but they accept donations for causes including domestic violence helplines and Black Lives Matter.

 rosy sq 9751eRosy Wellness
Rosy is the best app for those looking for instructional videos. Users can take a quiz for personalized recommendations, or they can sign up for multi-part classes taught by doctors, psychologists, and other experts. Standout offerings include guides to postpartum sex and pleasure, explainers on why you might be feeling pain during sex, and a course on rethinking desire. This app also has a community discussion space and ways to connect to local providers who are trained in sexual health and available for video chat sessions. Some parts of the app are free, and full access costs $9.99 a month.
