Forbes “30 Under 30” is an annual list that recognizes business and industry figures in different sectors; winners are selected by a jury of judges. Jakub Konik, 29 years old, was nominated for founding and running Lovely Inc., the company behind Lovely. Lovely is a cock ring and app that improves a couple’s sex life by giving them personalized tips and suggestions of new positions, stimulation techniques and other sex-related ideas based on their desires and data from Lovely sensors
“Getting on that list is something I’ve never expected given we’re a perceived as a sex toy company. It shows that the whole industry is closer and closer to mainstream adoption and we are at the forefront of this change with Lovely and our mission” says Konik. “I’m very excited and proud of our team – they made this happen. We will continue our work to make every couple’s sex life even better.”
The panel of judges included Tamara Mellon, Co-founder of Jimmy Choo, Alessandra Rossi, President Off Season of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and Ajay Anand, Founder of Rare Carat. They appreciated Lovely’s mission, which is to help all people have great sex with the use of cutting edge technology.
“Basically, Lovely learns what a given couple enjoys in bed and helps them to enjoy each other even more”, sums up Konik.
Lovely connects to an app where the couple can express their desires. Based on that and data from the Lovely sensors (gyroscope and accelerometer), the app provides personalized suggestions to the couple, such as new positions, stimulation techniques and more, on how to diversify and improve their sex life. It even tells how many calories they burned during sex. Furthermore, all tips have been created by renowned sexologists and future app updates will enable couples to chat with Sex Educators directly within the app, getting any hands-on sexual advice they might need. Shops and wholesalers who want to onboard Lovely are invited to contact Jakub at firstname.lastname@example.org.
