It seems like only yesterday that we were shuffling nervously up to our first ever Eroticon with very little idea what to expect. Hot Octopuss was a relatively new company and the team weren’t very familiar with the world of sex blogging. We were amazed by the warm welcome we got and the kindred spirits we met that year, many of whom have gone on to become friends as well as collaborators.
Now, shockingly, we’re onto our fifth year of sponsorship and just as excited as ever about hanging out with everybody for a weekend of shop talk, kink demos, cutting edge speakers and about a million cups of coffee. So, as has become the custom, here’s our virtual meet and greet:
Name (and Twitter if you have one)
We’re Alex and Aly and our Twitter is @HotOctopuss.
Tell us 3 things you are most looking forward to at Eroticon 2019
1. Catching up with all the sponsors and bloggers we only ever get to see at Eroticon – and meeting new ones.
2. The amazing range of speakers that never fail to teach us fascinating and useful new things. As well as the talks we attend because we know they’re professionally relevant, we also always end up with some totally unexpected gems on subjects we’d never even considered before.
3. Showing everybody JETT, our latest guybrator, as well as some prototypes for further products due out this year – we think you’re going to like them!
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.
Anything by Joan Jett because a) we love her and b) her name happens to be on brand for us this year. Also, sexy!
You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape?
We want to say something clever but the main thing that springs immediately to mind is coffee.
What is your favourite quote from a movie?
‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’ – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
What is your word suggestion to next years Eroticon anthology?
Complete the sentence:
in need of more coffee.
And finally, we wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about our giveaway this weekend, which gives you the chance to win every product we launch this year, starting with JETT, which came out last month. All you have to do is take a pic of our branded swag (preferably with yourself in it in some way, but faces aren’t essential), and post it on Twitter or Instagram mentioning @HotOctopuss and #Eroticon before the end of next week. The poster of the best pic (chosen by Adam and Jules, our founders) will be first in line for each of the new toys as they come out. Next one due in May!
