Podcast guest: Alexandra Fine, CEO of Dame Products
Dame Products was founded by two women to revolutionize sex toys through in-depth research, smart design, and plenty of empathy. After developing the #1 crowdfunded sex toy, the duo went on to create the first sex toy ever to be allowed on Kickstarter, and continues to design exceptional toys for sex to enhance intimacy and close the pleasure gap.
In just three years, the company and its meticulously engineered vibrators — Eva and Fin — have been met with critical and popular acclaim, earning praise in outlets including The New York Times, W Magazine, Vanity Fair, Fast Company and WIRED.
As CEO of Dame Products, Alex Fine translates the nuances of our sexualities into human-friendly toys for sex.
A lifelong student of sexual health, Fine earned her Masters in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in sex therapy from Columbia University.
Realizing that her skills would be best put to use making concrete improvements to people’s lives, Fine began developing her own vibrators at home and asking friends to give her their feedback. She was gaining startup experience with an organic shampoo company, and decided the time was right to put her passions and her business acumen to use in the world of sex toys.
In founding Dame Products, Fine intends to start necessary conversations, to listen rather than assume, and to create products that enhance intimacy.
