Hot Octopuss reveals ATOM cock ring at ANME and wins 2 XBIZ Awards!


January’s been a busy month. First, our CEO Adam and Head of Sales April showed off our soon-to-launch ATOM cock ring range at the ANME Show. Then we got the news that we’d won two XBIZ Awards – for Boutique Pleasure Products Company (third year in a row!) and Male Sex Toy for PULSE III.

It was a flying start to what will be a big year for Hot Octopuss, with the ATOM and ATOM PLUS cock rings due on the market by the spring, plus at least one more product – and maybe two or three – in the pipeline for launch by the end of the year.

April spent the two days of the ANME show (in ‘sunny’ LA – not so much this year!) on the Hot Octopuss stand with Adam, demoing the toys to buyers, and said the reaction was as good as she’d hoped it would be.

“ANME was super-successful for HO, even though it was a slow show overall,” she said. “Our booth was always busy, even when there was little to no traffic in the convention hall – maybe it was the power of our new cock rings! We opened a handful of new accounts and made some additional waves with the ATOM range – someone called them ‘the hit of the show’.”

She added: “It was great to catch up with Melody and Bruce Murison, founders of WeVibe, who were impressed with the power of ATOM and ATOM PLUS.

“We had a lot of our retailers drop in to check out our point of sale displays, and almost everyone expressed an interest in displaying them in a prime location in their stores. People were generally impressed with the power, uniqueness and sleek and stylish look of the product and pleased about the price point.”

We were also delighted to show ATOM off to lots of sex educators and bloggers at the show, including Emily Morse, Zoe Ligon and Ashley Manta, and look forward to finding out what they think when the review units go out (bloggers can get in touch with us if they’d like to go on the waiting list by emailing media@hotoctopuss.com).

We can’t reveal anything more about the new cock rings yet, but we can say they’re a reinvention of a classic sex toy in typical Hot Octopuss style, that we’re hoping will blow your socks off in the same way that PULSE and now Pocket PULSE have done for so many penis owners already. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Instagram accounts for more info as soon as it’s available.

April may have been flushed with the success of the ANME stand when she attended the XBIZ Awards later in the month, but she was still taken by surprise to be called up onstage to accept two awards – and ended up improvising an invitation to all the porn stars in the room to try out the power of PULSE.


She said: “It was light hearted yet comical sales pitch to all the porn stars in the room. I had intended to express gratitude for the industry and XBIZ but I was caught off guard so ended up with a funny acceptance speech which made the whole room laugh.”

Congratulations to all the other winners and many thanks to XBIZ for helping us start 2018 off with a bang. And porn performers – if you were too shy to take April up on her offer on the night, you can still email us to try out one of our toe-curling oscillating orgasm machines.
