All hail to the vibes of change. The year is 2016. Sexual health, contraception, communication and self-pleasure are all on the table! We’re doing it. We’re talking about it, and hopefully, we’re making the world happier and healthier by doing so. Kickstarter took notice and is also hot on this trend!
Up until just recently, Kickstarter has steered clear of any sex toys or erotica. In fact, Lovability was denied by Kickstarter back in 2014.
You can surmise that Kickstarter has a very involved community. If you don’t have people involved and passionate about your project, then you won’t get money and your dream just won’t happen.
So the idea that Kickstarter and a mass of people want to fund a vibrator is awesome news.
The project is by Dame, who already has a world-known and renowned “hands-free” vibrator, Eva. Dame is founded by two women–– who better to know women’s sexual preferences than two ladies, right? Alexandra Fin is a psychology graduate and sex expert and her partner Janet Lieberman is an MIT-educated engineer. You can thank their brains for your pleasure.
The Fin, the new vibrator by Dame was recently added to Kickstarter! It’s designed to mimic human touch. Unlike other vibrators, the Fin is placed between your fingertips for the best pleasure. Not only do your hands thank you, but it also gives the wearer direct contact with your down-under-bits, or your partner’s body if you choose to bring it into the mix. The Fin will retail for $74.99.
Dame is the first sex-related company to break Kickstarters’ barriers. This is great news for innovators in the field as well as individuals who love to explore and experiment with sexual pleasure, while wanting to avoid the awkwardness of adult stores. Can we get a hell yes to Kickstarter for opening their doors to products that promote a conversation on sexual health and self-pleasure? Thanks for bringing sexy back.

PS Don’t forget that Lovability began it’s journey as a crowdfunded condom on Indiegogo…back when Kickstarter didn’t allow sex-positive brands. I wonder if they would have accepted Lovability now just two years later!? What do you think?
