Company Behind The Semenette® & POPDildo™ Recognized by Industry Peers & Colleagues!
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 29, 2017) – Berman Innovations receives a nomination for LGBT Pleasure Products Company of the Year at the 2018 XBIZ Awards. Initially creating its flagship toy out of a desire to solve a problem for lesbian couples wishing to circumvent the IVF process, Berman Innovations’ product, POP by The Semenette®, also known as POPDildo™ (http://POPDildo.com), has seen an ever-increasing demand from a wide range of communities for the second iteration of its patented pleasure product.
“It is always such an honor to receive a nomination for the XBIZ Awards!” says Berman Innovations CEO and Founder Stephanie Berman. “I am especially grateful to be nominated in this category, as my product and mission are so personal to me. Being an LGBTQ member and creating a product that has been influential to the community – it’s incredible to be recognized in this way. A big thanks to XBIZ, my industry peers for voting, and congratulations to all of the nominees!”
The 16th annual XBIZ Awards will be held Thursday, January 18, 2018, at the spectacular JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles. The highly esteemed awards ceremony celebrates the top performers, companies, technology, and products in the adult entertainment industry. For more information, visit http://xbizawards.xbiz.com.
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, skyrocketing 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 Techie.com’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; invited on a panel discussion on HuffPost Live, Stephanie has spoken at WGBH’s Boston Talks series, and profiled in several medical journals.
Both The Semenette® and POPDildo™ are made of premium medical-grade silicone, and are non-toxic and phthalate-free. For more information, visit http://POPDildo.com.
