Back in 2017, we noticed that there was a big orgasm gap between men and women. In a study that asked about both men and women’s previous sexual encounter, 91% of men reported that they experienced an orgasm compared with only 64% of women (lesbian couples reported no such discrepancy). But despite not reaching climax 36% of the time, men believed their partner had reached orgasm 85% of the time. There wasn’t just an orgasm gap – there was a communication problem.
We wanted to create a way that women and their partners could bridge the orgasm gap together to realize their full sexual potential. Commercially launched in 2025, Compersia became the first implant devoted to enhancing intimacy.
Despite the orgasm gap, some early signals showed consumers were clamoring for a device like Compersia. The rise of fitness-tracking wearables, implantable birth control devices and websites devoted to exploring female sexuality like OMG Yes and Make Love Not Porn pointed towards the growing interest in addressing the pleasure divide.
Take Pleasure in Another’s Pleasure
We named our company Compersia after the word compersion, which is defined as a feeling of joy gained by witnessing another’s joy, or taking pleasure in another’s pleasure. The Compersia device helps couples understand and celebrate each other’s pleasure more deeply.
Since our 2030 launch, many wearers and their partners have experienced a fuller scope of pleasure. While there’s still work to be done, the Orgasm Gap among Compersia users is practically non-existent. Additionally, our implant system has also enabled greater pleasure and autonomy in women with disabilities, sexual dysfunction and in those healing from sexual trauma. We are passionate about the impact our product has had in bringing greater pleasure, joy and satisfaction to women everywhere.
