My male partner and I have always had a penchant for male toys… at least, in theory. As a girl with too many toys to count, my guy has tended to feel a little left out on the fun. Really, all that’s available to him is “life-like” sleeves that, as an uncircumcised guy, don’t feel much different than his own foreskin… just tighter, and sometimes slightly uncomfortable. Having not had much luck with masturbatory sleeves, we were really excited to try the unique design of the Hot Octopuss Pulse II Duo, the world’s first “Guybrator”, and a multi-award winning male stimulator that uses unique oscillations (similar to vibrations, but more of a piston motion) to stimulate the penis – and when used with a partner, can also provide some interesting uses for play.
From our experience, we really enjoyed the Pulse II Duo, and found it to be a very unique and pleasurable design compared to traditional masturbatory sleeves. Although I prefer intercourse and other types of clitoral stimulators during partner play, we will definitely continue using this during foreplay and as a novelty, so we can both feel the sensation of vibration. As a solo toy, it works wonderfully – and would be a great addition to your partner’s toy drawer, or as their very first toy! Plus, while it’s not a cheap toy, it’s definitely affordable, especially since it’s so high quality.
Check out the video below for an intro as to how the Pulse II Duo works!
Name: Pulse II Duo
Type: Men’s Toys
By: Hot Octopuss
Special Features: Textured, Waterproof, Multi Speed, Multi Function, Quiet, Rechargeable, USB
Unique, Innovative Design
Male masturbators are designed to fit over a guy’s penis, but usually are made of a silky smooth silicone to provide a lifelike feel. Instead, the Pulse II Duo is made of harder silicone (though it’s still silky smooth) that wraps around the penis more gently, and delivers a powerful vibration. It is very versatile, and can be used solo as a personal penis massager, or hands free during partner play. You also don’t need an erection to use it, and it can help with erectile dysfunction, allowing the male member to become hard during use. The entire design is 100% waterproof, making it incredibly easy to use and clean. Simply wash it with soap and water or your favorite toy cleaner! Remember to only use water-based lubes with the silicone material, as silicone lubes could cause it to degrade.
Variety of Vibrations
The inner part of the toy houses a vibrating piston that delivers sensation throughout the inside of the toy. The outer part of the toy also offers vibration, designed for a female partner to straddle and get sensation from the toy while it’s being used by the male partner. The outer vibration of the toy is controlled via a remote, while the inner portion of the toy is controlled via buttons on the toy itself. We found that the buttons on the toy were a bit difficult to press and require a bit of effort to activate, which can cause some frustration in the moment, but is overall minor. Both the inner and outer vibrations offer 6 patterns, and the inner vibration has adjustable intensity, ranging from a light yet satisfying vibration to a powerful, incredibly rumbly vibration.
The vibration patterns are:
- Steady Vibration
- Slow Pulses
- Faster Pulses
- Very Fast Pulses
- Three Fast Pulses with One Long Pulse
- Light Heartbeat Pulses
As a Solo Toy
Hot Octopuss notes that the very specific design of the vibrations can even make a man ejaculate involuntarily. The PulsePlate inside the toy is designed to deliver powerful, unique sensations. It delivers ” high-amplitude oscillations rather than low-amplitude vibrations”. It can be used either with lube as a traditional up-and-down masturbator. Or, it can be used lubricant-free as a static stimulator, providing intense stimulation directly to a man’s most sensitive spots. Although he didn’t experience involuntary ejaculation, my partner found the sensation to be incredibly strong, unlike anything he had ever experienced, with an intense orgasm that felt quite different than what he’s used to during masturbation, oral sex, or intercourse.
As a Couple’s Toy
The Pulse II Duo can also be used as a couples toy. When he puts it on, a female partner can straddle his penis and the toy, allowing the outer part of the toy to vibrate via a remote control. It would be cool to see if it could also be used by male/male partners, though we don’t have any experience with this, so can’t comment on how that could work out. Although the sensation is definitely powerful and pleasurable, the mechanics of it can be a little difficult. The toy slips and slides around, and is a little too large to comfortably fit along by labia, so the vibrations just don’t really hit where I would like them to. It is definitely a cool novelty for foreplay, but if I really want vibration down there during play, I’d personally much rather have a small handheld bullet vibrator that can directly target my clitoris, rather than delivering vibration across my entire labia. However, if you like the idea of sharing the same sensation with your partner, and both moving in sync for that unique sensation, it would definitely be worth your while.
Pros & Cons
- High quality, waterproof design
- Can fit a variety of penis sizes and shapes
- High intensity, powerfully rumbly vibrations
- Easy to use and clean
- Buttons can be difficult to press
- Couples uses are a fun novelty, but not our favorite
The Hot Octopuss Pulse II Duo is by far the best male toy my partner and I have tried so far. The vibrations really put it over the edge, and the high-quality features are really a breath of fresh air in a toy industry that tends to put men’s pleasure to the side. We love how it can fit a variety of sizes, without feeling like he has to squeeze in – and it feels nice in a variety of ways, either solo or with a partner. We would very highly recommend it, whether it’s your first male toy or your hundredth!
