I talk about sex regularly on Bulletproof Radio because the energy, connection and humanity that’s a part of sexual wellness improves our lives. So does the fun factor.
In this episode, credentialed sexologist Alexandra Fine talks with me about the pleasure gap and ways to close it. After earning her master’s in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in sex therapy from Columbia University, she decided to focus her passion and expertise on the world of sex tech.
Alex and mechanical engineer Janet Lieberman co-founded Dame Products. These are innovative tools and resources for adult sexual well-being: solo play, couples or polyamorous if that’s your preference. Dame’s first product, Eva, became the most crowdfunded sex toy in history. Its second product, Fin, was the first sex toy allowed on Kickstarter.
“We are women designing products that predominantly help people just like us have more fulfilling lives,” Alex said about getting the Fin on Kickstarter. “This isn't about prurient behavior. This isn't about being lewd or crude. This is about living a healthy life.”
Beyond the obvious physical fun, Dame’s meticulously engineered vibrators designed to do three specific things:
- start necessary conversations,
- listen rather than assume, and
- create products that enhance intimacy.
Within five years of its launch, Dame earned critical and popular acclaim, as well as praise in international media, including the New York Times, Forbes, Wired, Vice, BBC and the Today Show. Fast Company recognized Dame as one of the "most innovative wellness companies of 2020,” and Well+Good named Dame a “2020 changemaker.”
Listen on to learn more about how shame-free sex and well-designed sex toys can contribute to your overall health and energy.
