Dorian Electra (born Dorian Electra Fridkin Gomberg, June 25, 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, video and performance artist.
Electra first drew national attention in 2010 with the music video I'm in Love with Friedrich Hayek, which lauded the philosophy of the Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek and garnered commentary from the modern Austrian theory professor Steven Horwitz.
In 2011, she released two more videos, Roll with the Flow and We Got it 4 Cheap. Both were covered by mainstream political media. We Got it 4 Cheap came in second in the Lloyd V. Hackley Endowment's "Supply and Demand Video Contest".
In September 2012, Electra released the music video Party Milk, which she describes as an attempt to merge common party scene symbolism with something one would never associate with a party, but that everyone is familiar with in another context.
Electra drew criticism from Gawker's Maureen Tkacik, who criticized her as an example of "tween indoctrination" with libertarian ideas. In 2013, Electra told The College Fix that she no longer identified as a libertarian.
In 2016, Electra released Ode To The Clitoris on Refinery29 detailing the history of the clitoris from ancient Greece to modern 3D models. In an interview Electra stated it was to "desensitize people to the word CLITORIS and help bring it more into popular consciousness."  In June 2016 Electra released Mind Body Problem on Bullett Media, a song and video "about femininity as a performance —when being a ‘woman’ feels like putting on a costume and the costume doesn’t seem to come off with the clothes,” 
Electra continued her music video series with Refinery29 about intersectional feminism and queer histories with The History of Vibrators (2016), the Dark History of High Heels (2016), 2000 Years of Drag (2016), and Control (2017). These videos focused on the histories of intersectional feminist and queer issues, collaborating with many artists including Imp Queen, London Jade, The Vixen, Lucy Stool, Eva Young, Zuri Marley, K Rizz, and Chynna. 2000 Years of Drag was accepted and screened at The East Village Queer Film Festival, NewFest, Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest, TWIST: Seattle Queer Film Festival, Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival (aGLIFF), Art All Night - Trenton: 6th Annual Film Festival, Desperado LGBT Film Festival, QUEER-Streifen Regensburg, Filmfest homochrom, Flatpack Film Festival, CINEMQ.
