The Semenette® is nominated for Specialty Product / Line of the Year for the 2016 XBIZ 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.
“I am truly honored to be nominated for a second year in this category,” says Semenette® CEO Stephanie Berman. “To be recognized by my peers and colleagues once again is a huge testament to our product. It’s been incredible to see how The Semenette® has evolved into something necessary for such a wide variety of sex positive communities, and I am thrilled to be recognized by XBIZ with this nomination.”
The 14th annual XBIZ Awards will be held January 15, 2015, at the spectacular JW Marriott located at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles, and hosted by adult film superstar Stoya. The highly esteemed awards ceremony celebrates the top performers, companies, technology, and products in the adult entertainment industry.
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.
