5 Women Run Companies Changing the Way You Have Sex
Alexandra Fine and Janet Lieberman founded Dame Products based on the desire to bring well-engineered sex toys, designed by women, to a still male- dominated market. They wanted to satisfy the real needs of women with great materials and designs meant for women’s bodies and sexual needs. Their flagship product, the Eva wearable vibrator, was originally funded by an Indiegogo campaign and far exceeded either founder’s expectations. They have since gone on to create the Fin finger vibrator and the remastered Eva II with tremendous success.
Stephanie Berman is the Owner, President and creative force behind Berman Innovations and their flagship product the POP Semenette Squirting Dildo which has been a game changer in the sex toy industry. As a lesbian, Stephanie knew first-hand the frustration of not having any products on the market that would allow couples wanting to get pregnant an authentic, natural, and intimate experience with insemination. The POP Dildo, with its superior silicone material, harness capability, and replaceable inner tubing, not only allowed Stephanie and her wife to conceive 2 beautiful children, but it has been a ground-breaking product for the trans community, as well as for people experiencing erectile dysfunction.
Clean Light Labs
Founded by mother/daughter team Carrie Martz and Brooke Martz O’Connor, their sex toy sanitizing system the Uvee has been garnering attention in publications like the New York Times, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Health Magazine. The GO Play (smaller) and HOME Play (larger) systems are the world’s first scientifically proven sanitizing, charging, and lockable sex toy storage systems. Concerned with the problem of bacteria on sex toys leading to repeated infection, the two founders worked with a master biochemist to create Uvee’s scientifically proven, patent-pending UV-C germicidal light system which kills 99.9% of the bacteria associate with the use of adult toys that may cause infection.
Alicia Sinclair, Founder and Managing Director, is the powerhouse behind the creation of COTR’s award-winning and critically acclaimed brands Le Wand Massager, B-Vibe Anal Toys, and the Cowgirl Premium Sex Machine. Each product has been thoughtfully designed with a tremendous attention to detail and marketed with a body and sex positive message that resonates with not just women but with everybody. Alicia herself is a certified Sex Expert with more than 15 years in the sexual intimacy industry.
Company founder and product designer Rianne Swierstra is driven by her passion for the wellbeing of women in general, and their sexual wellness specifically, which is why she creates each product with care and thoughtfulness. From the packaging to the branding, each of her product is a sensory experience, with hand crafted cosmetic bags or inspirational quote bracelets included in with her luxurious toys the Xena Heating Rabbit Vibrator. Her sex positive philosophy and attention to detail have allowed the Rianne S brand grow from its home in the Netherlands to 35 countries worldwide
