Eroticon 2018 Meet and Greet: Hot Octopuss

In just over a fortnight we’re off to Eroticon as sponsors for the fourth year running – and if anything we’re even more excited than in previous years.

Last year’s Eroticon was the biggest ever – and for the first time was held in Camden, London, on our home turf. We caught up with friends, made some new ones, watched some fantastic acts at the Saturday night do, had our minds blown by some of the speakers, came away with excellent swag (yeah, even sponsors get swag!)… oh and also, in between all that, we may have shown off our toys to a few people.

There are even more delegates this year, and the programme is packed with fascinating talks and panels… also we have THREE new toys to show off to you all. So basically, we’re expecting great things (no pressure though, Molly, Michael and GOTN ;-D).

Its become an Eroticon tradition to do an online meet and greet before the event – and so here’s ours…

NAME (and Twitter if you have one)

Aly and Alex will be there from the HO team this year, and we’re @HotOctopuss on Twitter.

What are you most looking forward to about Eroticon 2018?

That’s a very difficult question. Partly it’s catching up with people we only ever see at this event. Partly it’s the amazing collection of speakers (and this year there are far too many we’re excited about for us to be able to pick only one or two out). And of course it’s getting the chance to demo our latest products – Pocket PULSE and the ATOM collection – to some of the most important influencers in the sex toy world.

Every year at Eroticon we meet new writers who go on to review our toys, work with us on our blog and other platforms, and who generally with their work expand our minds and inform how we go about our jobs. We also enjoy hanging out in the Corridor of Swag and meeting/catching up with fellow sponsors (not just for the free stuff, honest).

We are creating a play list of songs for the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Nominate one song that you would like us to add to the play list and tell us why you picked that song

Would it destroy everyone else’s night if we asked for Octopus’s Garden? It even has the right number of s’s!

What’s the first career you dreamed of having as a kid?

Adam, our founder, started inventing sex toys at a young age (we’re told Henry the Hoover was involved in one unfortunate experiment). So Hot Octopuss was basically always his dream job.

Weirdest place you’ve ever gotten up to mischief (define ‘mischief’ however you like…)

We did a mischief in an NYC phone booth once…

Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself

Our company name is the secret password our founders Adam and Jules used for their hedonistic Camden house parties back in the 90s.

Alex is a Brony and has all the My Little Pony cutie marks tattooed on his leg.

Our ATOM PLUS is the first ever cock ring to feature dual integrated motors for simultaneous penis and perineum stimulation.

Complete the sentence: We want…

…to have a Time Turner so that we can demo our toys to every single delegate at Eroticon AND see all of the speakers.
