LONDON (January 22, 2014) – Award-winning UK-based intimacy products innovator Hot Octopuss’s PULSE II wins Male Sex Toy of the Year at the 2015 XBIZ Awards. The Awards, hosted by adult film superstar James Deen, was held inside a cutting-edge special events venue in downtown Los Angeles last week.
Co-creator of PULSE and Hot Octopuss CEO Adam Lewis says, “We’re so humbled to have been recognized by our industry colleagues at XBIZ. It’s amazing to receive such recognition from the US market; PULSE II was created as the direct result of reviews, suggestions, and responses from our industry peers and critics, as well as users of PULSE. We’re very proud of our products, and absolutely honored with this award.”
Lewis continues, “With our focus on technology, lifestyle and design, we wanted to bring a product to the market that was not only acceptable, but also aspirational, and it represents a quantum shift for male sex toys. Thank you, everyone – this really has been a spectacular year for Hot Octopuss, and this award proves our idea to bring luxury to the male sex toy market has been something the industry embraces wholeheartedly. Thank you, XBIZ, from everyone here at Hot Octopuss!”
Founded on medical research and patented across the world, PULSE is one of the most powerful and effective stimulators ever created. Harnessing state-of-the-art oscillating technology, via the cutting edge PulsePlate™, PULSE delivers a far more intense experience than traditional vibrators through deep and powerful oscillations. Innovatively designed to also be a fantastic couple’s toy, the underside delivers dual-stimulation, whilst its hands-free design leaves partners free to focus on each other.
The PULSE II collection offers two products: Solo and Duo. PULSE II Solo, to be used by men, is fully waterproof and features five pre-set vibration modes. PULSE II Duo, to be used by couples, also comes with five pre-set vibration modes and is waterproof, but also features independent, controllable vibrations for her via a remote control. PULSE II products still retain the pioneering, innovative qualities of the world’s first-ever ‘guybrator,’ PULSE, which allows men to use the device from both flaccid and erect states – an innovation which has won rave reviews not only from pleasure products reviewers, but the sexual health community as well.
Not only is the technology impressive, the British-founded PULSE is as beautiful as it is effective. Working with an award-winning London design agency, PULSE is sleek, discrete and stylish in comparison to most male toys on the market. Customers, retailers and distributors alike are all first charmed by the luxurious design of the device, and then amazed by the powerful vibrations the hand-held unit is able to deliver at a touch of a button.
PULSE continues to receive high praise from industry colleagues and reviewers alike, resulting in over 10,000 units sold around the world in the first six months since its launch. Named one of the Top 5 New Sex Toys of 2014 by the Baltimore Sun, PULSE received Best New Male Product honors at the 2014 Erotic Trade Only (ETO) Awards, and honored with a 2014 XBIZ Award for Couples Sex Toy of the Year.
Worn by him but enjoyed by both, PULSE is the first sex toy on the market that is designed to be both a revolutionary male stimulator and a pioneering couple’s toy to be used during foreplay.

About Hot Octopuss:
Back in the early nineties, two London teenagers met through live music, mutual friends and a healthy addiction to fun in all its beautiful guises. Fifteen years later and still best friends, Julia and Adam shared an idea that would eventually revolutionize the way sex toys are perceived, and created Hot Octopuss. Sitting at the cutting edge of sex toy design, Hot Octopuss creates next generation toys for men, women and couples, designed to fit in with people’s lifestyles, not just their bedrooms. Combining science and innovation to bring sex toys into the 21st century, Hot Octopuss’ first offering, the luxury “guybrator” PULSE is as beautiful, cool and desirable as anything currently available for women. Unlike anything the market has ever seen, PULSE represents the biggest innovation in sex toys since the Rampant Rabbit revolutionized the female market more than a decade ago and is covered by numerous international patents.
