Meet the Minds behind Dame
“Crafting Pleasurable Sex to Enrich Wellbeing” – Dame
Dame isn’t any ordinary sex toy retailer. With nourishing sexual contentment and wellness in mind, Dame provides a women-powered source for products designed not just for pleasure, but also to deepen connections.
Dame was founded in 2014 by Alexandra Fine, a sexologist, and Janet Lieberman, an MIT engineer. According to the two founders, the ethos of Dame is to make an impact and enrichment of lifestyle, whether it’s within or beyond the context of your sex life. Dame has always been about breaking barriers and pushing limits.
In 2014, Dame managed to develop and come up with the most crowdfunded sex toy in history known as the Eva vibrator. Fast-forward to 2016, Dame’s second product, Fin, was the first-ever sex toy that was allowed to be published and advertised on the popular crowdfunding app; Kickstarter. Dame has also been active in promoting and revolutionizing awareness in relation to sexual wellness and lifestyle.
In 2019, Dame actually brought legal action against New York City’s subways on the basis that they were discriminatory in what was allowed to be advertised in the subways. This lawsuit has caught the attention of many celebrated publishers such as the New York Times, Forbes, and Vice. To sum it up, Dame describes themselves as being on a mission to close the “Pleasure Gap”; and they are attempting to reform and change this by “shaping paths to shame-free sexual pleasure”.
What Sets Dame Apart
On top of its impressive and stark background, Dame has also developed itself into a one-of-a-kind and truly special company. This is evidently pointed out by various aspects of Dame that really sets them apart from their competitors and fellow companies in the same industry.
One of Dame’s most striking features is its guarantee of only using, manufacturing, and selling doctor-approved products which are medically proven to be 100% body-safe materials. Dame does so by organizing a Clinical Board of Medical Advisors, consisting of a total of 3 experts and professionals in the sexual health industry. Before Dame is able to make a decision on materials, product developments, and hardware designs, they would have to seek advice and approval from this Clinical Board of Medical Advisors.
People Focused Research
Another special feature of Dame is its insistence on catering its products to suit its consumers. This approach was greatly exemplified with Dame Labs, a community established by Dame in order to conduct people focused research relating to various topics such as sex, health, pleasure, lifestyle, and mindfulness. By signing up with Dame Labs, Dame is able to gain valuable insights and perspectives on various projects that they are conducting, such as helping them develop and design products, discuss intimacy and pleasure, and also share their own personal opinions. This is also one of the many ways in which Dame really proves that they are a company that is willing to go the extra mile for their customers’ satisfaction.
Workshops and Contents
Dame also goes beyond a company that sells sex toys: it also provides various workshops and content in order to help you grow and develop as an individual. In regards to its workshops, Dame offers different workshops that help you discover pleasure, develop a mind-body connection, and to also cultivate intimacy. By signing up with Dame workshops, you are able to gain access to live remote classes, the ability to ask questions directly to an expert, and also receive worksheets, recordings, and resources that you can utilize even after the workshop! Some past workshops conducted by Dame include Mindful Sex, De-Stress Your Sex, Pelvic Floor Pilates, and Soothing Self-Massage. Dame also provides content and resources that can aid you in gaining and discovering new helpful information. Dame has written multiple blog posts including Your Guide to Your Wellness, How to Tell If You’ve Had an Orgasm, and Condoms 101: Staying Safe in the Sack.
