Wake + Bake: Mornings With a Sex Toy Queen

Weed and masturbation are a match made in heaven. Ditto with high sexual health and pleasure in general. But you’re reading Miss Grass, so you already know that. But the pleasure gap has far-reaching consequences, my friend. Did you know that sex toys are completely unregulated by the FDA?

Someone who knows all too well is Alexandra Fine, the co-founder and CEO of Dame—the sex toy company revolutionizing pleasure (and yes, the same one featured in our Miss Grass Sex Kit). As a sexologist, she’s set about co-creating a sex toy company that helps remedy double standards for women and helps them get off in the process.

And as a regular weed smoker, she’s all about that plant pleasure too. And that just about makes her one of our favorite people. Read on to learn all about how this industry fire-starter incorporates cannabis into her every morning.

Jerico Mandybur: How did you and cannabis meet?

Alexandra Fine: I was introduced to cannabis through movies and those movies made weed seem like fun and funny. I was a goodie goodie in high school though and I thought I drinking was okay but weed wasn’t. I eventually got past that and the movies proved to be true. Today cannabis and I are still in love and going strong.

What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

It depends on the time of year as I always wake up with the sun. The first thing I do is annoy my husband until he wakes up. Then we like to have a morning dance party.

What does your daily cannabis routine look like?

I smoke joints daily. I find taking my time rolling joints to be meditative.

Favorite thing to eat in the AM?

I smoke in the morning, so I’m usually not hungry (weed calms my stomach and doesn’t give me the munchies!) If I do eat, I’ll have a banana, oatmeal, or a hard-boiled egg.

First product you reach for in the morning?

Toothbrush and toothpaste!!

Morning self-care ritual?

Every morning I do my five minute journal gratitude work. “What’s going to make today great?” is one of my favorite questions to answer. It’s important to me to appreciate the balance between work and play.

Kip is one of my favorite toys we make at Dame that lives on my nightstand and I also like to travel with it. Lucas Paw Paw Ointment is a lip balm I love.

CBD skincare hack?

Skincare hasn’t been a part of my self-care routine. It just doesn’t come as natural to me as cannabis or sexual wellness! 

Song that *actually* gets you up?

“Soulmate” by Lizzo because I’m a Queen and I don’t need no crown. 

Everyday comfy outfit?

I am a huge fan of the jumper and high-waisted trousers. Both provide me with ease, comfort, allow me to move freely.

Vape, tincture, topical or edible?

If it was easier to take consistently, tinctures would be my choice. I hate edibles. I prefer joints but the scent tends to give away my stoner-ness, which I could do without sometimes.
