 Company Behind The Semenette® & POPDildo™ Recognized by Industry Peers & Colleagues!

Berman Innovations and its innovative ejaculating dildo receives three nominations for the 2017 XBIZ Awards. POP by The Semenette®, also known as POPDildo™ (http://POPDildo.com), is nominated for both Sex Toy of the Year (Non-Powered) and Specialty Product / Line of the Year; Berman Innovations itself is additionally nominated for LGBT Pleasure Products Company of the Year.

Initially creating its flagship toy out of a desire to solve a problem for lesbian couples wishing to circumvent the IVF process, Berman Innovations has since seen an ever-increasing demand from a wide range of sex-positive communities, for the second iteration of its patented pleasure product.

“I am overwhelmed with excitement at receiving 3 XBIZ award nominations!” says CEO and inventor Stephanie Berman. “This has been a year of new beginnings, with the launch of POPDildo™ – filled with so much growth and positive feedback about our new toy. I’m thrilled to have our efforts recognized by the industry and our peers. I am so passionate about sexual health education, especially for my fellow LGBTQ+ community members, which makes me particularly proud of the ‘LGBT Pleasure Products Company of the Year’ nomination. Thank you, XBIZ, and congratulations to all of the nominees!”

In addition to its pleasure products nominations, Berman Innovations congratulates Aiden Starr for her Fetish Release of the Year nomination for “Lesbian Anal Sex Slaves 2,” in which POPDildo™ was used prominently as a featured main prop. The film, distributed by Evil Angel Video, has been heralded by sales staff and reviewers alike, as being the first film to showcase ‘cum shots’ in all-girl scenes.

“I am so happy for Adien’s work to be recognized with this nomination!” continues Berman. “This was the first movie that POPDildo™ was featured in, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person, performer, or director to have worked with. Aiden has a very unique style, and she showcased another way of using POPDildo™ perfectly. Congratulations!”

Of the film, Justin Rich, Evil Angel’s domestic sales manager, says, “The first release in [Starr’s] series did really well with a potent brew of popular niches — lesbian, plus strap-on, plus anal, plus slave kink. This new one extends that with a special attraction: finally, an all-girl movie has cum shots!”

The impressive cast list for the film features Daisy Ducati, Ziggy Star, Casey Calvert, Sovereign Syre, Kimberly Kane, Yhivi, Skin Diamond, and the director herself.

The 15th annual XBIZ Awards will be held Thursday, January 12, 2017, at the spectacular Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, and hosted by adult entertainment legend Ron Jeremy. 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 CEO of The Semenette®, Stephanie has extensive knowledge and understanding of the women’s reproductive health market. The Semenette®, and its second iteration, POPDildo™, 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. POPDildo™ has 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.

The Semenette® (http://TheSemenette.com), a novelty intimacy product, 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.

News of The Semenette® experienced its first viral wave soon after its launch, and media attention has not waned about the company’s innovative approach to at-home conception for the LGBT, FTM trans, erectile dysfunction, and serodiscordant communities. 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.

Recipient of Techie.com’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.
