Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman to Speak at Adult Novelty Expo

Conception Innovator to Discuss Retail & Distribution for Pleasure Products, in Addition to Working with Medical Professionals, at ‘CES of Sex Toys’!


LAS VEGAS (January 22, 2018) – Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman will be participating in two panel discussions this week, on Thursday, January 25 and Friday, January 26, at the upcoming Adult Novelty Expo in Las Vegas. Dubbed “the CES of sex toys” by Wired magazine, the trade-only show for pleasure product professionals takes place inside Festival Hall in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and will be restricted to trade attendees.


“I always look forward to attending ANE every year,” says Berman. “Each year, the AVN team comes up with a great variety of relevant and important topics to discuss, and I’m always honored to be invited to participate as an expert. The AVN / AEE / ANE show brings together such a diverse crowd from all walks of our industry, and I’m looking forward to seeing customers, retailers, performers, and all our industry friends!”


Berman will first be participating in the “Take a Chance on Me” panel on Thursday, January 25, from 12pm – 1pm at Festival Hall C near Paradise Tower. “Getting the pleasure product which you designed actually made isn’t the end of the road,” reads the panel description. “There’s still the matter of getting your product directly in front of customers. It can be difficult trying to figure out whether to deal directly with retailers, and/or which distribution companies to use. In the seminar, manufacturers, retailers, and distributors will talk about the pros and cons of both routes, and share their success stories as well as their challenges.”


Berman will then speak on the following day, in the panel named “Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News” from 12pm-1pm in the same room (Festival Hall C). “In the never-ending move to get recognized in mainstream outlets, manufacturers are looking to work with medical professionals to have their products recommended to patients,” reads the panel description. “Panelists will talk about the benefits of collaborating with physicians, how to know if it’s right for your product, and how to get started.”

Stephanie Berman has been in the women’s reproductive health industry since 2003. As co-owner and Vice President of her family business, Sepal Reproductive International, as well as CEO of The Semenette®, Berman has extensive knowledge and understanding of the women’s reproductive health market. Berman Innovations’ flagship product, The Semenette® (, allows partners to re-create the ejaculation process in the privacy of their own home, through its proprietary inner tubing and pump system. Berman herself is the first of many Semenette® success stories; she and her wife successfully used the product to conceive their daughter and son. The product experienced its first viral wave soon after its launch in early 2015, and global media attention has not waned about the company’s innovative approach to at-home conception for the LGBT, FTM / trans, disabled, and serodiscordant communities.


Berman Innovations then teamed up with German pleasure products manufacturer Fun Factory to introduce its second iteration, POPDildo™ ( By incorporating Fun Factory’s pleasure-focused shape, and built for G-spot play, with the technology of the original Semenette®, POPDildo™ has skyrocketed to the “wish list” for many since its launch in February 2016.


POPDildo’s newest offering, POP Lube, a collaborative product through Sliquid specifically formulated for use with POPDildo, is nominated in the Outstanding Lubricant category for the 2018 “O” Awards; POPDildo™ itself is nominated for Best Pleasure Product Manufacturer (Small) for the upcoming 2018 AVN Awards, a category in which Berman Innovations won last year.


The Semenette® and POPDildo™, both novelty intimacy products, allow partners to mimic traditional intercourse through its proprietary inner tubing and pump system, complete with ejaculation – something that sets it apart from both traditional dildos and “party”-style ejaculating toys. Recipient of’s Editor’s Choice Lightning Bolt Award for Emerging Technology, and the 2016 NightMoves Award for Pleasure Product of the Year, the company has also received industry nominations for Couples Sex Toy of the Year, Specialty Pleasure Product of the Year, and New Product of the Year. Both The Semenette® and POPDildo™ are made of premium medical-grade silicone, and are non-toxic and phthalate-free.
