Award-Winning Conception Innovator Meets with Detroit-Based Lesbian Reality Show Cast on Screen!
DETROIT (May 23, 2017) – Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman appears in an upcoming episode of “More Than Just Us.” The inventor of the groundbreaking, award-winning POPDildo™ by The Semenette® appears on the Detroit-based reality show, in a segment where she meets with a lesbian couple looking to use her product to conceive.
“This was such a unique opportunity I was genuinely excited to take part in,” says Berman. “It’s not often I get the chance to sit down with my customers, not only to share my story, but to help advise them in their process of starting a family. The fact it was being filmed for a reality show was a little nerve-wracking, but also a ton of fun and an experience I won’t soon forget! I try to embrace every moment I get to educate couples, and hope DL and her wife will be another POP success story!”
“My wife and I have been trying for years to conceive, with a few fails along the way,” says “More Than Just Us” director and cast member DL Collins. “We were just about ready to give up, when I remembered a toy I had seen online some years ago, that might help us out – and we thought, what the hell, let’s try it! We also decided to not only try it, but also to document the journey. We went to the POPDildo™ site, and began to read all of the success stories – which were great, but we needed help from the master herself!”
Collins continues, “Stephanie [Berman] was awesome when we set up our on-camera consultation; she was so friendly, and extremely helpful with getting us started on our road to successful baby-making. It was so important to implement our conversation into the show, because we want people with the same struggles as us to know that there is a personal, intimate option to use when starting a family, and POPDildo™ is it!”
“More Than Just Us” is a documentary-style reality television series set in Detroit, Michigan, which focuses on the lives of eight lesbians who live, love, and venture on their paths to success. From DL and Elaine, with their blended family of three boys and three girls, who want to try for their “tie-breaker” baby using the revolutionary POPDildo™; to Lisa and Destiny, a newly engaged couple going through the highs and lows of a same-sex couple planning a wedding; Cassanova and Yah Yah, the veteran couple struggling with trust and romance seeking the help of a sexologist; and last but not least, D Mack and Shatriece, the single friends in this circle, on their own individual journeys to find love, this reality show touches on subjects viewers can all relate to: find love, stay in love, the fight to love, discover new love, and grow their families. The show is currently being pitched to cable and subscription networks.
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®, 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 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.
Recipient of Techie.com’s Editor’s Choice Lightning Bolt Award for Emerging Technology, the 2016 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. US media, including Cosmopolitan, Refinery29, Daily Dot, and Women’s Health, as well as dozens of international media outlets, have noted Berman’s impact on the pleasure product market, particularly leading the charge to mix sexual health and pleasure. Berman also appeared on a panel discussion on Huffington Post Live, to share the story behind The Semenette, as well as was profiled in several medical journals.
