Sextech Revolution

Andrea Barrica

Sitting between Planned Parenthood and Pornhub, sexual wellness is the next blue ocean for tech entrepreneurs and investors alike—and nobody is talking about it.

This recession-proof industry will be worth an estimated $122 billion by 2026, yet no one is prepared for this wave of innovation. But after years of being ignored due to shame and stigma, the sexual wellness revolution is upon us at last.

If you ask Andrea Barrica, it’s embarrassing it took this long.

Sextech Revolution is a firsthand account of how you can build a company and raise money in this space. Andrea shares how she’s tackled the financial and structural challenges sex tech startups face, and provides unparalleled insight into how investors and entrepreneurs can navigate and understand the nuances of the sexual wellness industry.
