The sexual wellness brand has launched the tongue-in-cheek toy to allow people to ‘get fucked by the government on their own terms.’

Dame launches a Mitch McConnell-faced dildo to fight for the right to abortion

Dame has teamed up with creative agency Mischief at No Fixed Address to launch a politically-charged sex toy that will funnel 100% of sales going to organizations fighting for the right to access abortion care.

The limited-edition dildo features the face of Mitch McConnell, the Republican senator from Kentucky. He helped engineer the fall of Roe v Wade by working to reshape the federal judiciary and the US Supreme Court. As part of the launch, a creative poster has been launched that reads: ‘Get F*ucked by the Government on your own terms.’

The money from the sale of these toys will go towards organizations fighting for the right to access abortion healthcare following the June 24 2022 decision.

Dame is further encouraging people to vote as the homepage of the website reads: ‘Anti-choice politicians are f*cking you. Now you get to f*ck them back. (And enjoy it while you do.)’

Alexandra Fine, founder and chief executive officer of Dame Products, said: “In dismantling the critical right to abortion access, the government has fucked America. At Dame, we believe our bodies are our own, and it is our choice to do with them as we please. This encompasses everything from pleasure to life-saving healthcare. So we wanted to engage in the discourse, raise funds and have fun doing it. Pleasure is our guiding force and we need autonomy over our bodies in order to enjoy them.”

Starting today, people who want to support the right to critical healthcare access can buy this dildo at Dame for $80 – a number that represents the percentage of Americans who believe abortion should be legal, according to independent research firm Gallup.

Dana Buckhorn, a creative at Mischief at No Fixed Address, the creative agency that teamed up with Dame, added: “We wanted to make sure this issue is top of mind leading up to the midterm elections, when people have the chance to make meaningful change.”
