Less than five years ago, a major meeting of the minds happened and a sex toy company looking to "close the pleasure gap," Dame Products, was born. With their first toy, Eva, Dame Products turned to Indiegogo to get funding for their 2014 product, and that toy was the first of its kind: a hands-free vibrator that could be worn during penetrative sex (or during solo play), thanks to the wings that tuck comfortably under the labia part of the vulva. Since then, Dame Products has created five vibrators and one pillow, specifically designed to make sex even better. And now, the company has introduced its newest launch, a clitoral-stimulating sex toy called Kip ($85).
"We started from the idea of an ergonomic pencil and then realized that the soft triangular shape had other benefits for getting into nooks and crannies, while still being big enough for a powerful motor," founder and CTO/CPO at Dame Products Janet Lieberman tells Bustle. "Kip is one of our most exploratory products — the flutter tip, curved cup, and rounded shaft edges all give different sensations, and the way the product can be held many different ways encourages trying different uses."
Fortunately, I've been lucky enough to try all of Dame's products, and I have yet to be disappointed. In fact, in October of 2018, I declared Pom my favorite sex toy of all time, not only because I actually whispered to it in the middle of the night, "I love you," but because, for me, it was everything I'd dreamed of and wanted, but just wasn't aware of until that very moment. With Pom having set such a high standard for my vulva and myself, personally, I wasn't sure how well Kip and I would mesh. Would Kip have me whispering, "I love you?" You'll have to keep reading to find out.
