As the founders of female-focused sex toy company Dame, which was established last June, Alexandra fine is determined to bridge the “pleasure gap” — the fact that men are twice as likely as women to have an orgasm during sex. Only 30 percent of women are able to orgasm from intercourse alone, so stimulating the clitoris during sex becomes paramount to female satisfaction. With dynamic arms that tuck inside the vagina, Eva provides clitoral vibration without needing to be held in place during sex. “When I was doing my research, the thing that would get me really riled up was just the amount of pleasure that women were having from sex versus men,” Fine tells Bustle. “Men, just based on anatomy, tend to determine when it’s over. About 70 percent of women need clitoral stimulation in order to have an orgasm at all.”
