More than a clever name, Hot Octopuss has released the latest in ‘guybrator’ technology. The Hot Octopuss PULSE DUO III is a vibrating, thumping, throbbing piece of hardware, enveloping your dick in sensation. It’s unlike any other toy I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot. Whereas most toys just squeeze, the PULSE III puts pressure where you want it with so-so-good rhythm. It’s really thumps and bounds apart from the competition. It’s not a one-trick pony, either (one trick octopus?). There are plenty of ways of using this vibrating sheath. Plus, you can enjoy it together or separate.

Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo IIIHan Solo

It’s easy to use the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo III for solo masturbation. You just put your dick in it. Use the controls on the side to start the vibration and the remote for controlling the thumping. This is especially handy because you don’t have to stop and fiddle with it during the action. Use lube if you are girthy. The ‘wings’ on the side are flexible but can chafe if you are squeezed in there. The outer casing is smooth and feels really nice sliding up and down.

Place the inside circle at the base of your head where the glans meets the shaft. That’s where the thumping will hit you best. So, the whole thing is vibrating, which is great, and you add the thumping on top—phenomenal. The nice thing is you don’t have to be hard to start either. Let this bad boy do all the work getting you there. That makes it great for foreplay when you add a partner.

Adding your Leia

Speaking of partners, there is something for him or her too. On the top curve, opposite the wings, is another vibrating motor. This means that they can ride on top of you while your penis is inside the toy. HOT! You get to see them gyrating with the vibrations. While at the same time, they are moving the toy up and down, you get a hands-free ride.

Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo IIII’m not sure if it will be enough to get them off—it depends on how sensitive they are. I would recommend lube on this part too. It helps keep things flowing. Either way, it’s an exciting warm up and really gets the blood pumping. My partner and I tried it for a while and enjoyed it. But it did take a while making sure everything was perfectly lined up, making sure she was hitting the right spot while the thumping circle stayed in place. It’ll take some practice to make it a seamless experience, I think. She can use it as a clitoral vibe when you’re away too—no member necessary.

I really loved my girl using her hand at my base and balls with the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo III sitting at the tip. She moved it around and easily adjusted the tempo with the remote. The great thing about this toy is it’s waterproof. That mean you can take it into the bath or shower. The only thing that distracted me for a moment was that it’s not the quietest toy. Not blazingly loud, but noticeable.

Lightsaber Training

The rounded side can be used solo, too. Place it on your perineum and use your hand on your dick. The vibrations are very strong. Full power was too much of a good thing for me. But there are many settings. So it wasn’t hard to find the right one. Keeping the Hot Octopuss PULSE DUO III on a lower setting also helps me have control. Using it like this was a great way to practice edging and allow me to maintain for longer.

Improvements of the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo III

So if you have a Pulse II, do you need to upgrade? The improvements they made on the PULSE III is they added state-of-the-art magnetic charging, which is convenient to use. It also has a “Turbo Mode” which lets you jump to the highest setting faster. They also added a “speed sensor/anti-stall sensor” which adjusts when pressure is exerted onto the outer curve. They have made the second motor there stronger as well. If that rocks your boat, then go for it. Personally, I feel satisfied with my II. Though I like the new features, it wouldn’t be worth upgrading for me. But if you are buying new, why invest in outdated equipment?
