LONDON — U.K.-based intimacy products innovator Hot Octopuss has been named one of the “21 Lustworthy Gifts for a Sexy Holiday Season” by pop culture, fashion and style website

“If you're looking for a spicy gift for your lover, a token of affection for an open-minded friend or a little something special for yourself, we can help,” said Refinery29 contributing writer Hayley MacMillen. Of Pulse, she writes, “This ultra-classy oscillating sleeve — suited for both masturbation and hands-free, partnered foreplay — could help give male sex toys a new image.”

“We’re so proud of Pulse, and delighted with how the U.S. public have embraced our products,” Hot Octopuss CEO Adam Lewis said. “Thank you Refinery29 from everyone here at Hot Octopuss — we’re pleased to bring some extra sexy cheer to men and couples this holiday season.”

Named one of the Top 5 New Sex Toys of 2014 by the Baltimore Sun, Pulse was took home the 2014 XBIZ Award for Couples Sex Toy of the Year. Hot Octopuss received four Pleasure Products category nominations for the 2015 XBIZ Awards.

Pulse, with support from the sexual health community, has billed itself as an alternative approach to addressing erectile dysfunction.

According to Hot Octopuss, the oscillating technology powering the product allows users to ejaculate without the need for an erection, which could potentially combat psychosexual issues without the need for health practitioner intervention.
