We’ve decided to take legal action against the MTA to protest this sexist policy, and to address its implications for vulva-havers everywhere. Advertisements are hugely influential on our culture, and have the potential to bring sexual wellness tools out of the shadows and into our lives. (You can read our complaint here!)
Vibrators are regularly prescribed by doctors as a drug-free, affordable solution for low-libido, arousal disorders, and sexual function issues for those recovering from abuse, cancer, and more. If vibrator companies can't advertise, those people won’t know what options are available to them.
Since the MTA won’t take our ads, we need your help. If you believe that all sexualities and genders deserve equal access to public forums, please consider taking a screenshot of our ads and sharing our story with the hashtag #DerailSexism, and mention @dameproducts and @MTA (@mtanyctransit on Instagram). Thank you for your support in making the world a happier place, one vulva at a time.
