Health Sector CEO Julia Margo Comes On Board Full Time at HO

Hot Octopuss today announces it has made Julia Margo its new Chief Operating Officer, reinforcing its commitment to breaking barriers and creating sex toys that are both inclusive and promote wellness with pleasure.

Jules comes on board to support the team as we launch a new range of innovative products, significantly broadening our portfolio to cater to the next generation of sex toy users.

Jules co-founded Hot Octopuss in 2011 with Adam Lewis, but has since been working in an advisory role. As Chief Operating Officer, Julia will direct our marketing department and lead our public relations team. Her expertise stems from roles in top UK organisations including the think tank Demos, the consumer group Which? and the medical research charity Genesis Research Trust.

Also a published author on social change, wellbeing and consumer issues, Julia will bring invaluable insight to Hot Octopuss as we grow our global customer base and focus efforts on lesser-served markets in the sex toy industry, including disabled and older consumers, with a range of inclusive products that stimulate pleasure and transcend pre-existing stigma

Adam Lewis, Co-Founder, said: “I’m so excited to have my partner in crime Julia Margo fully on board. Hot Octopuss has always been committed to pushing the boundaries of the sex toy industry through our award-winning products and our loud and proud marketing efforts. I have no doubt that she will be a powerful force in taking us to the next level.”

Hot Octopuss remains committed to promoting the health benefits of masturbation and orgasms. Studies have proven that regular sexual activity can increase your lifespan, lower risk of heart disease, and release chemicals like endorphins and oxytocin, which act as natural pain relievers, maximise restful sleep and reduce stress levels. With the national and international focus on wellness on the rise, it’s an opportune moment for the sex toy industry to enter the conversation, providing natural solutions to consumers who are looking to improve their health and wellbeing.

Julia Margo, Chief Operating Officer, said: “It has never been a better time to turn my full focus to Hot Octopuss, as we set our sights on another year of growth. We’re seeing a convergence within the wellness industry and the sex toy market which, in my opinion, has been a long time coming. Bringing my expertise from the health sector to the table, I am looking forward to working side-by-side with Adam as we bring new products to market, with innovative pleasure and inclusive technology at the forefront of our efforts.”

Hot Octopuss exists to reinvent pleasure for the 21st Century. The masterminds behind The Changing Room, the world’s first orgasm pop-up, and NYC’s ‘GuyFi’ public stress relief booth, Hot Octopuss delivers the most cutting-edge toys to the adult industry. Recent products include the ATOM PLUS cock ring, PULSE and the Pocket PULSE Remote.
