POPDildo™ Featured & Reviewed in Broadly

Berman Innovations’ Patented Ejaculating Dildo Recognized by Vice.com’s Feminist Channel!


BOSTON (August 31, 2017) — Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman, and her patented invention, POPDildo™, are featured in Broadly this week. Broadly is Vice.com’s feminist wing, sharing real, provocative, and political stories which affect women’s lives.


“Prior to writing this article, I had zero interactions with dildos,” writes Broadly columnist Maria Yagoa in her piece, “I Tried an Ejaculating Dildo and Learned a Lot More Than I Expected.” “As a cisgender, heterosexual lady who isn’t as kinky as you’d expect a sex columnist to be, I’ve never felt the need for a substitute…As so few things are in the world of sex toys, [POPDildo] is actually quite beautiful…I realized I had been reflexively heteronormative.” Yagoda’s article goes on to cover Berman’s invention’s use in other communities, including fantasy play, a discussion about POPDildo™ with trans dominatrix Sadie Synn, and a personal review from using the toy solo.


“I want to thank Maria for being so open-minded and adventurous enough to try out our POPDildo™, and to Broadly for sharing this with their readers,” says Berman Innovations CEO Stephanie Berman. “A lot of the focus in my other interviews have been about my personal story of conceiving with POP, so it’s great to see our toy showcased in a different perspective – through the eyes of Maria and other wonderful people, who represent other groups who love using POP. One of the goals when launching POPDildo™ was to highlight the various utilizations of the toy for other communities, and this article does that perfectly!”

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 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. 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.


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.
