LOS ANGELES — Satisfyer says that following 18 months of development and global patent research, it will debut its next milestone, a couples toy, in October.
Responsible for the product development department of the new partner toy range, Sebastian Jonas says that with the Satisfyer Pro 2, the company has shown that it can offer innovative technology at low prices and with high margins for specialist retailers.
“Instead of taking the failed path of sued imitators and counterfeiters, we have invested a seven-digit figure in research and development of new technology and design, which has clearly been chosen as the best partner toy by our test groups,” Jonas says explains. “For this, we have established another brand, which we will be promoting globally [starting this] autumn.”
“Our lawyers are only still in negotiation with the patent authorities in Canada and Australia,” Jonas says. “In contrast, the situation has been fully clarified in the U.S., Europe, China, South America, Japan and Russia, and all the necessary patents have been granted or submitted.”
The launch of the couples toy will start in all markets apart from Australia and Canada in October, with priority delivery to Satisfyer distributors, the company says.
Satisfyer Vice President of Sales Jerome Bensimon says he believes now is the time to expand the couples vibrator category "in a legal way with new innovations.”
