It might seem like the current election has been running for thousands of years, but it’s almost over now – voting day is nearly upon us. On Tuesday 8th November, every American adult has the power to make a choice for the next President of the United States. And to encourage you to exercise yours, we’ll be giving a PULSE III SOLO or DUO to one lucky voter.
The election has been tough for many people – only yesterday we spotted news that the election is having a negative impact on people’s sex lives. Nearly 20% of Democrats and 9% of Republicans feel that campaign negativity is affecting their fun in the bedroom.
Win a PULSE III: vote!
So we want to do a little bit to help encourage you to vote – and give you something nice with which to wind down in the post-election aftermath. Starting today, if you tweet or Instagram us (@HotOctopuss) a post-voting picture of yourself using the hashtag #VotingIsSexy, we’ll enter you into a draw to win a new PULSE III SOLO or PULSE III DUO. And just like presidential candidates, you get to pick from the two options.
PULSE III is the newest generation sex toy from Hot Octopuss – with silicone wings that grip your penis, and an oscillating PulsePlate that sends deep, rumbling vibrations through the head and shaft. PULSE III is waterproof, rechargeable, and easy-to-use, and the DUO model comes with an additional powerful external motor, to stimulate your partner during couples’ play.
How to enter to win a PULSE III
Terms and conditions of the comp are below, but the main thing you need to know is your picture can be any post-vote selfie you like: maybe a picture of your ‘I voted!’ pin, or you walking home after casting your ballot. Or you and your friends having a post-vote pizza party. As long as you tweet @HotOctopuss and include the tag #VotingIsSexy (or do the equivalent on Instagram), we’ll include you in the draw to win a PULSE III.
No pictures inside the ballot box though, please: there are rules about these things. CNN has a list of all the rules about voting selfies by state, but to save you wading through all of them, we’re going to tell you that the best rule of thumb is: take your picture after you’ve left the area, when the satisfied grin of exercising your democratic right will speak for itself. If you’ve got your vote in early, you’re still eligible to enter the competition – just take a picture that sums up your happiness at having cast your vote/relief that the election will soon be over/hope for the future/whatever your feelings are at this point.
It’s been a long ride, but it’s almost over now: so get ready, get set… vote!
