Few industries have felt the same pushback as SexTech. It seems that no matter how valuable, unique, or innovative a product or service is—involving SexTech in the equation inspires prudes to throw up roadblocks. The SexTech industry is resilient and made up of passionate designers, creatives, marketers, and others who simply aren’t willing to take No for an answer. That has led to some fun an...
Think all the latest innovations in SexTech are for 20-somethings? Not a chance. Just ask Joan Price—advocate for ageless sexuality and a brand ambassador for Hot Octopuss.
XBiz details that Senior Sexpert Price is totally over the concept that old people aren’t down to get their sex on. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, those over 50 are better informed about sex, know their bodies far better than they did in younger years, are more comfortable talking about sex, and unashamedly seeking pleasure.
The forthcoming ‘Ask Joan’ page will feature candid information and advice, plus answers to questions from seniors. Issues will include post-menopausal sex, aging sexual organs, and tips on sex toy selection and use. Price is excited to have the opportunity to help other seniors explore and improve their sex lives whether they’re with a long-term partner, going solo, or playing the field.
In addition to the Ask Joan column, Hot Octopuss also features an array of sex toys specifically aimed at the over 55 set. This is unique in the industry. Even though SexTech is increasingly inclusive and diverse in terms of culture, sexuality, gender expression, and experience level—age is often left out of the conversation entirely. This writer would like to think there’s no age at which a reasonably healthy person shouldn’t expect to be having good sex regularly.
Along with straight talk about senior sex, there are also expected to be reviews of sex toys by senior users, which promises a unique and helpful perspective. It will be interesting to see what kind of response Hot Octopuss gets, and whether or not age-diversity becomes a component of SexTech marketing for more companies.
Ultimately, the Senior Sex Hub at Hot Octopuss hopes to obliterate misconceptions and help others overcome hurdles that impede satisfying pleasurable sex.
