Eroticon Live in Bristol – the conference for sex bloggers and erotica writers – begins tomorrow, and Hot Octopuss is proud to be sponsoring, alongside the lovely Doxy, Godemiche and Mystery Vibe. We’re sending two team members, a carload of PULSE II demo stuff and a great big pile of (we hope) sexy T-shirts for the very sexy delegates who are going to be attending.
There’s just one catch, though: if you want your T (it’s very cute and has an octopus on it, which is weirdly something we’ve never done before) you’ll have to pop by our stand and say hi. Don’t worry, we’re quite lovely. We can demo PULSE II for you and whisper in your ear about the THREE – yes, THREE – new toys we have planned for launch in the autumn. You can register your interest in reviewing some or all of these beauties when they’re ready, and you can generally pay us compliments on our haircuts and buy us coffees too, if you like. Also, spankings. We like those.
The talented Molly Moore from Molly’s Daily Kiss is currently hosting an Eroticon Live meet ‘n’ greet forum on her blog, and has helpfully provided a series of questions for us to answer in amusing ways that will make you like us. No pressure, then. :-/
Anyway, here we go! We look forward to meeting everyone in person over the weekend.
NAME (and Twitter name if you have one)
We’re part of the Hot Octopuss team. We’re Aly and Alex, but you can call us Al. On Twitter we’re @PleasurePulse
If you had the opportunity to rename yourself (or your blog) what would you pick?
Why would we rename ourselves when we can make a quality Paul Simon reference with the names we have?
What are you most looking forward to at Eroticon Live and/or is there anything you are nervous about?
We attended Eroticon last year for the first time, also as sponsors, and were blown away by what a great event it was: the quality of the speakers, the loveliness of the delegates and the relationships we were able to form and develop there. So we’re just looking forward to more of the same, really! We’re also looking forward to handing over an exclusive Hot Octopuss T-shirt to everyone who visits our stand, demoing PULSE II for those who haven’t seen it yet, and giving people some exclusive gossip about the new toys we have planned for launch later this year. Nervous? We’re a bit nervous about the Rope Jealousy possibly striking again during DJ Fet’s demoing. Last year we had to leave the room.
Have you planned which sessions you will be attending or are you more of a spur of the moment kind of person?
We’re a bit overwhelmed by the options at the moment so it will probably be a spur of the moment thing, but we will definitely be attending Girl On The Net’s session, because we’re proud to say she’s part of the HO team too (she helps out on our social media and writes our blogs, apart from this one – don’t blame her for this one).
What essential items to your life will be bringing with you to Eroticon Live? (you can have a maximum of 5)
We wouldn’t be allowed to attend without bringing all of the Hot Octopuss stand equipment, a load of demo toys and a great big hefty pile of T-shirts. Don’t forget – visit our stand to get yours! 😉
A new cocktail has been named in your honour. What would be the key ingredient and what would it be called?
It would be called Octopuss Ink (obvs) and would consist of black coffee and Martini, oscillated, not vibrated, and could come with either one or two straws…
And finally… Complete the sentence; I have yet to…
Be called upon to do the Hot Octopuss Dance in public.
