LOS ANGELES, CA (November 25, 2015) – The Semenette® is nominated in the Outstanding Non-Powered Product & Outstanding Innovation categories for the 2016 “O” Awards. The conception innovator initially created out of a desire to solve a problem for lesbian couples wishing to circumvent the IVF process, and has since seen a demand from a wide range of sex-positive communities.“These are my first ‘O’ Awards nominations, and to be recognized in two categories is an absolute honor,” says Semenette® CEO Stephanie Berman. “I am thrilled at the positive response – not only from customers, but from the industry as well. I’m excited to continue to innovate and grow our brand, and to take part in honoring all of the nominees in January!”Now in its seventh year, the “O” Awards honor the best products and collections from leading and cutting-edge manufacturers. The ceremony for the 2016 “O” Awards will take place January 22, 2016 during the AVN Novelty Expo in Las Vegas.
News of The Semenette experienced its first viral wave soon after its launch in early 2015, and media attention has not waned about the company’s innovative approach to at-home conception for the LGBT, FTM trans, and serodiscordant communities. US media outlets, including Cosmopolitan, Refinery29, Daily Dot, and Women’s Health, as well as dozens of international media outlets, have noted The Semenette’s impact on insemination options for couples trying to conceive outside of traditional IVF and “turkey baster” routes. Berman also appeared on a panel discussion on Huffington Post Live, to share the story behind The Semenette.
The Semenette®, a novelty intimacy product, allows partners to mimic traditional intercourse through its proprietary inner tubing and pump system, re-creating the ejaculation process in the privacy of their own home. Berman herself is the first of The Semenette®’s many success stories. Recipient of Techie.com’s Editor’s Choice Lightning Bolt Award for Emerging Technology, and industry nominations for Couples Sex Toy of the Year, Specialty Pleasure Product of the Year, and New Product of the Year, The Semenette® is made of premium medical-grade silicone, and is non-toxic and phthalate-free.
