LOS ANGELES — Berman Innovations, inventor of The Semenette and POPDildo, is mentioned in three separate mainstream outlets for its product’s innovative medical applications, as well as its status as a woman-run business.
The mentions follow a mention in a recent Bustle.com list of “8 Sex Toys Invented by Women Specifically for Female Pleasure.”
Cosmopolitan Sex & Relationships editor Hayley MacMillen, in the article, “10 Things Your Fertility Doctor Wants You to Know About Getting Pregnant Right Now,” says, “Insemination can help you get pregnant when intercourse isn’t working or isn’t an option…for example, members of same-sex female couples… Intracervical insemination (ICI)… [mimics] what happens during intercourse — think of the ‘turkey baster’ method…and ejaculating toys such as POPDildo are growing in popularity."
UK news outlet The Independent’s Love and Sex writer Kashmira Gander mentions POPDildo inventor and Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman in her article, “2017 will be Year of ‘Vagina-nomics’ and Women Designing Sex Toys are Leading the Way.”
Medical Plastics News, also based in the U.K., named its coverage of Berman Innovations as one of its most-read stories of 2016.
“We’ve had some great stories and innovation from North American-based companies over the last year,” writes contributor Lu Rahman in Meet the All-Stars in Medtech. “One of the most popular stories of the year came from Berman Innovations. Owner Stephanie Berman’s POP by The Semenette unites a sex toy with a device that aids conception.”
“What an honor it is to receive this kind of mainstream coverage in such a wide variety of media outlets,” Berman said. “This past year was spent focusing on the launch of POPDildo and really honing in on its pleasure applications, so it’s very exciting to have both its medical and pleasure functions be recognized and praised. With our recent six adult industry award nominations, this is an exceptional way to end our year and I continue to be very grateful and humbled at the overwhelmingly positive response from customers, retailers and the media. I’m looking forward to 2017— to continue to evolve POP and bring other innovative products to the market.”
Berman has been in the women’s reproductive health industry since 2003 as co-owner and vice president of her family business, Sepal Reproductive International, as well as CEO of The Semenette. Berman Innovations’ flagship product, The Semenette, allows partners to re-create the ejaculation process in the privacy of their own home, through its proprietary inner tubing and pump system.
Berman Innovations then teamed up with German pleasure products manufacturer Fun Factory to introduce its second iteration, POPDildo.
