In the months since we’ve launched the Dipsea app, we’ve heard amazing things from our listeners. Women told us they’d never experienced anything that turned them on so consistently. Partners shared that we’d revived their weeknight sex lives.
But we’ve also gotten plenty of questions. Some people are curious. Others are skeptical. A lot just want to better understand what Dipsea is before they try it themselves.
And hey, that makes sense! For almost everyone, this is an entirely new experience. So if you’re one of those question-havers, you’re in the right place. I’ll answer some FAQs and explain why we do what we do.
What is Dipsea?
Dipsea is an app for short & sexy audio stories and wellness sessions.
Who’s behind the app?
We’re a female-founded company based in San Francisco. Part of our team focuses on building the app that listeners use to discover and listen. Another part of our team creates original audio content. Our short, sexy audio stories aren’t available anywhere else because we craft them all ourselves: we work with writers, we edit scripts, we cast and record voice actors, and produce stories into immersive sound experiences.
Why does Dipsea matter?
Female sexuality is as much about the brain as it is the body.
Because that idea isn’t popularly understood, there are a lot of women left wondering why it’s so damn hard to get in the mood, or why they can get after it with their vibrator and still not climax after a stressful day. We’re here to say there’s nothing wrong with you, but rather what you’re attending to. The brain is what deserves more attention: erotic inspiration, mood making, and context setting.
1. Women deserve better erotic inspiration.
There’s a long legacy of erotica behind of us, but porn wasn’t designed for the female brain (a lot of women just aren’t turned on by it, others question the ethicality or authenticity of what they’re watching). And literature hasn’t seen real innovation (written erotica is scattered around the internet on websites that look straight out of 1999, and a lot romance novels can feel like time travel too).
2. Sexual wellness is an important part of overall wellness.
Just like exercise, or meditation, tapping into your sexuality reconnects mind and body, floods you with good chemicals, and makes you feel more confident, empowered, and alive. Dipsea isn’t just about arousal, it’s about tapping your inner sexual powers more accessibly.
Audio is immersive, intimate, and imaginative. It’s the perfect medium for something as sensory, private, and deeply personal as sexuality. As a listener you can either become the participant or the voyeur, and can use your imagination to fill in the blanks exactly how you want to.
Why is Dipsea an app and not a podcast?
Creating an app allows us to create the best possible experience for our listeners. That means being able to surface stories you’re more likely to love, learn and create better content, and offering a beautiful, branded destination. It also means we can offer a completely uninterrupted, ad-free listening experience!
Why is this for women?
The majority of erotic content is designed from, and for, the male perspective. Dipsea, on the other hand, was created with women’s needs and desires in mind. But Dipsea tells diverse stories from diverse perspectives—stories that can enjoyed by all sorts of people. Dipsea is great for anyone looking to spark their imagination and enter an erotic space.
Can partners listen together?
Absolutely. We hear it all the time: making time and space for sex can be hard! Dipsea can help partners get into the language of sex and intimacy in a way that makes foreplay, well, more like happy hour. Because it’s audio, Dipsea is hands-free, which means you can look at and focus on each other in a way you can’t while watching visual content. It’s even a great way to explore what you’re both interested in, and to spark new conversations.
How sexy is it, really?
Dipsea’s content ranges from light flirtation and sensuality to highly explicit sex. We do our best to label everything as clearly as possible, so you know what you’re getting into before you decide to listen.
