Using the social networking app Meetup, Brooklyn-based Lieberman found a like-minded business partner in Alexandra Fine, who had just graduated from Columbia University with her master’s in clinical psychology. Together, they launched Dame Products. “The idea behind Dame Products was to make toys for sex that would close the pleasure gap, or the notion that four times more women than men say that sex is ‘not at all pleasurable,’” 29-year-old Fine says.

Learn about the fascinating history of the sex toy:

Dame Products’s first offering was the Eva, a hands-free, egg-shaped vibrator that tucks into your labia and anchors itself with two wings, and is meant to be worn during sex. Fine came up with the idea for the Eva before the company was founded. “I was actually wrapping a silver dollar in various materials and having my friends drop trou and try it out—truly a sophisticated engineering strategy,” she says. “I knew the concept I wanted to make—something that would set in the labia and provide clitoral stimulation during penetrative sex—and I knew that nobody had done it before.”

The female-first design has resonated big time with buyers—according to the New York Times, more than 65,000 of the $105 Eva have been sold. It’s so popular that Dame has had trouble keeping up with the demand, and it’s regularly backordered at sex toy stores. (Psst: Adam & Eve will ship them again starting October 14.)

Fine and Lieberman take feedback seriously, so when they heard some customers craved a more hands-on experience, they listened, and the Fin was born. The Fin is designed to be worn on the tips of your fingers or the base of your palm.

Both the Eva and Fin went through a methodological product development process. “For Fin, we surveyed about 200 people, asking them what products they’d used, what worked or didn’t work, and what they’d want from a finger vibrator,” Janet says. They then came up with prototypes with a 3D printer and tested them out. “The last phase of development for both products was iterating with alpha and beta testers—refining the details until we had something we were proud of,” Lieberman says. “It’s a human-centered design approach, which is not widely used in the space because it takes a lot of work, but we believe it results in better products and that your vulva deserves it.” (Treat your vulva with the respect it deserves by using an all-organic lube, like this one from the Women’s Health Boutique.)

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive to their toys. “We take all of the responses we get from users to heart,” says Fine. “We had this one man write us letting us know that after eight years of marriage, Eva led to the first time his wife wanted to have sex two nights in a row. It was such a small anecdote, but it always stuck with me.”

The two say that they’re hoping to reframe the way people view female sexual pleasure with Dame. “All of our products and research will continue our mission of closing the pleasure gap and inserting smart, human-made—mostly lady-made—products into a space that’s ripe for change,” says Fine.
