Hot Octopuss’ PULSE II DUO Nominated for SHE Award

LONDON – U.K.-based intimacy products innovator Hot Octopuss’ PULSE II DUO is nominated for Best Sex Toy for Couples at the 2015 SHE Awards. The inaugural SHE Awards honor the best products designed for a healthy sex life, and are part of the 2015 Sexual Health Expo (SHE).

Co-creator of PULSE and Hot Octopuss CEO Adam Lewis says, “We’re so proud to be a British company offering genuinely new and innovative design-led products which deliver incredible experiences. PULSE II is the direct result of reviews, suggestions, and responses from our industry peers and critics, as well as users of our original PULSE. We’re delighted the U.S. public have recognized the technological advances which have gone into the creation of our products, and how it can be utilized for both men and couples.”

Lewis continues, “We’re extremely proud of PULSE as well as PULSE II, and we’re absolutely honored with this nomination. Thank you, SHE, from everyone here at Hot Octopuss!”

SHE Awards winners will be announced on the evening of Jan. 17, during a lavish gala for attendees and participants of Sexual Health Expo, which will be held at the stylish Sofitel Hotel in West Hollywood Jan. 17-18. Covering a wide range of categories, the SHE Awards recognize products distinctly designed for sexual health, as well as products to improve sex for couples and oneself.

Hot Octopuss has received rave reviews and accolades for its state-of-the-art PULSE, the world’s first luxury “guybrator,” and the updated PULSE II, since each product’s launch. Named one of the Top 5 New Sex Toys of 2014 by the Baltimore Sun, PULSE received Best New Male Product honors at the 2014 Erotic Trade Only (ETO) Awards, and honored with a 2014 XBIZ Award for Couples Sex Toy of the Year. The innovative British company ended the year listed on the annual holiday gift guides for both Mr Will’s House of Thrills and Refinery29.

The PULSE II collection offers two products: Solo and Duo. PULSE II Solo, to be used by men, is fully waterproof and features five pre-set vibration modes. PULSE II Duo, to be used by couples, also comes with five pre-set vibration modes and is waterproof, but also features independent, controllable vibrations for her via a remote control. PULSE II products still retain the innovative qualities of the world’s first-ever ‘guybrator,’ PULSE, which allows men to use the device from both flaccid and erect states – an innovation which has won rave reviews not only from pleasure products reviewers, but the sexual health community as well.

Working with an award-winning London design agency, PULSE is sleek, discrete and stylish in comparison to most male toys on the market.

Worn by him but enjoyed by both, PULSE is the first sex toy on the market that is designed to be both a male stimulator and a pioneering couple’s toy to be used during foreplay. For more information, visit
