Award-Winning Ejaculating Dildo Named by Health & Lifestyle Site as 1 of ‘8 Best Sex Toys to Spice Up Your Life’!


BOSTON (February 7, 2018) — Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman’s patented, award-winning invention, POPDildo™, is featured on health and lifestyle media outlet LIVESTRONG contributing writer August McLaughlin included POPDildo™, in addition to seven other products, in her listicle, “8 Best Sex Toys to Spice Up Your Life, According to the Experts.”


“I want to thank August for including POP in this article,” says Berman. “It’s a huge compliment and honor to be on a list of Top 8 products, when there are so many worthy choices out there. While conception was my initial purpose for the product, I’m thrilled to see how POPDildo™ has evolved, and is being recognized and praised for its many uses beyond conception.”


“Sex toys bring in more than $15 billion in global revenue each year, according to a 2016 Statistic Brain report, and nearly a quarter of adults have reportedly used them,” writes McLaughlin. “Known to enhance pleasure, orgasm capability, and intimacy while bringing a sense of novelty and adventure to the bedroom, the merchandise formerly considered hush-hush is becoming increasingly mainstream.”


Of POPDildo™, which is named second overall on the list, McLaughlin discusses its expanded use amongst not just the family planning community, but as “a hit amongst pleasure-seekers, whether they hope to procreate or not.” She also quotes Good Vibrations educational outreach manager Andy Duran, regarding its popularity amongst trans and gender-variant customers.

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 Founder and President of Berman Innovations, Stephanie has extensive knowledge and understanding of the women’s reproductive health market. The company’s flagship product, The Semenette®, and its second iteration, POPDildo™, allow partners to mimic traditional intercourse, and re-create the ejaculation process in the privacy of their own home through its proprietary inner tubing and pump system – something that sets it apart from both traditional dildos and “party”-style ejaculating toys. Berman herself is the first of many success stories for The Semenette®; she and her wife successfully used the product to conceive both their daughter and son.


The Semenette® 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, erectile dysfunction, and serodiscordant communities. Its follow-up, POPDildo™, quickly found a fan base in people excited by its potential for play, who recognize the technology sets it apart from both traditional dildos and “party”-style ejaculating toys. POPDildo™ has since skyrocketed to the top of the “wish list” for a wide variety of community members, including pegging enthusiasts, kinksters, and fetishists. POPDildo™ is available in Toffee, Cocoa, Slate, and Blackberry; the kit comes with three replaceable tubes, three tips, and one bulb. Refill kits and bulbs are sold separately.


Recipient of’s Editor’s Choice Lightning Bolt Award for Emerging Technology, the 2017 AVN Award for Best Pleasure Product Manufacturer, 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, by industry media outlets including XBIZ and StorErotica. Mainstream US media, including Cosmopolitan, Refinery29, and Women’s Health, as well as international media outlets, have noted Berman’s impact on the pleasure product market; Berman has appeared on a panel discussion on HuffPost Live, spoken at WGBH’s Boston Talks series, and has been profiled in several medical journals for her work.


Both The Semenette® and POPDildo™ are made of premium medical-grade silicone, and are non-toxic and phthalate-free. For more information, visit
