WHY TFP LOVES ALEX: Alexandra Fine is a sexologist and pleasure revolutionary. At the helm of Dame Products, Alexandra proudly creates innovative toys while stamping out societal stigmas. Named in Forbes 30 Under 30, her artistic roots flourished in New York City’s broad-minded culture. She’s a tiny lady with a fearless presence, leading the legal battle against the city’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to ensure sex toy advertisements for women are as mainstream as erectile dysfunction posters for men. Dedicated to closing the pleasure gap, Alexandra Fine works to make expertly-engineered sex toys accessible to real people. We were honored to have her speak at BedHead, our official launch party.
