How it all Started

Back in the early nineties, two London teenagers met through live music, mutual friends and a healthy addiction to fun in all its beautiful guises.

Fifteen years later and still best friends, Jessica and Adam shared an idea that would eventually revolutionise the way sex toys are used.

Launched in September 2013, PULSE aka “The Guybrator™” was the first product from Hot Octopuss, a British founded company changing the way sex toys are perceived. Hot Octopuss sit at the cutting edge of sex toy design, creating next generation toys for men, women and couples, which are designed to fit in with people’s lifestyles, not just their bedrooms.

Our products combine science and innovation to bring sex toys into the 21st century and our products for men and couples – like PULSE – are as beautiful, cool and desirable as anything currently available just for women.

PULSE is unlike anything the market has ever seen and we believe represents the biggest innovation in sex toys since the Rampant Rabbit revolutionised the female market more than a decade ago.
