Using the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux
I have done the majority of this review relying on my 30 years’ experience in the sex toy industry. After all, I have watched sex toys change and evolve from hard plastic vibrators exclusively for females to a whole new realm of playthings for everyone! However, when it came to actually using the product, this was something I had to rate on actual use. Therefore, I recruited a friend to use the product with her partner. Hannah D is a twenty-something year old, partnered woman with a modest amount of sex toy experience. She and her boyfriend were more than willing to try the Pulse Duo Lux, of which, I gifted them for helping me out. Here is Hannah’s experience:
Hannah D’s Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo LuxThe first go-round with the Pulse Duo Lux was a bit awkward and trying for the young couple. “We couldn’t figure out the watch remotes so we didn’t use them. We just turned it on with the side button. And although it (the Pulse Duo Lux) didn’t fit on him, it was definitely still usable. TBH, he had me tied up and had the device on his hand. So, overall, I thought the experience was enjoyable! Definitely the best orgasm I’ve ever had; we just had to get creative with it. It was easy to use once we got it turned on but neither one of us are tech savvy.” Considering Hannah said the product didn’t fit her partner’s penis, I suggested they try lubing him up and sliding the Pulse Duo Lux onto him before he became erect. Here’s how that turned out: “Okay, so we tried it before he was fully hard and it fit a lot better this time. If anything, I’d say it was better than the first time we tried it because we already felt comfortable having used it once. And it made the entire experience more enjoyable.” Further pressed, Hannah admitted that her boyfriend enjoyed the sensations of the Pulse Plate on the Pulse Duo Lux and when she hit that turbo button, it made him giggle before settling into an “ahhhh sensation”. So, in my opinion from handling the toy myself, plus Hannah’s experience, I believe the Pulse Duo Lux is a unique, powerful and thoroughly enjoyable sex toy for the penis and those who love them.
The Design: A Closer Look
The design of the Pulse Duo Lux is quite unique from any other stroker. Created with Silicone, ABS, this stroker has wings designed to curl around the top-side of the penis while the sensitive underside is bathed in incredible vibrations from the pulse plate. This holds it in place for true, hands-free play. In addition, Hot Octopuss added another vibrator to the bottom of the stroker that allows a partner to ride the toy and enjoy their own exciting vibrations. The wrist strap remotes allow for teasing that will send one another into another orbit! Unfortunately, if you have a thick penis, you may have problems sliding into the stroker.
Understanding the Accessibility of the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux
You would think the Pulse Duo Lux would be simple enough to use. You slide your penis in, flip it up on your belly, have your partner jump on and there you go. However, this stroker definitely wasn’t created for girthy penises and it has very little give to it. Plus, the controls are pretty difficult to learn. One remote operates the pulse plate, the other controls the exterior vibrator. You can go up and down though speeds and patterns with one, but not the other. And using the buttons on the stroker is even more confusing. Thank goodness there’s a turbo button because until you learn all of the buttons, you can press that one and tease your partner. The whole thing was a huge learning curve for me, hopefully, it won’t be so difficult for you!
Rating the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux’s quality
The Pulse Duo Lux is made of body-safe silicone, ABS. It’s thick, masculine and ribbed in all the right places. The wrist straps are silicone and well-constructed with ease-of-use in mind. The remote controls pop free easily, however, they are very small and a bit difficult to hold onto. Overall, this is a quality product that will last through vigorous solo and couples play.
Evaluating the Pricing of the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux
The Pulse Duo Lux is one of those luxury, investment toys. It’s definitely not a cheap masturbating sleeve that you’ll be tossing in the trash after a few months’ use. Made from thick, silicone, ABS, it’s sculpted to surround your penis in mind-blowing vibrations by stimulating the sensitive underside though the pulse plate. And the fact that you can stimulate your partner too, makes it a whole new ballgame! Plus, the hands-free capabilities will add a whole new dimension to foreplay and sex. Well worth the money, in my opinion! Do it, you won’t regret it.
Sensory Exploration: Evaluating the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux’s Performance
The Pulse Duo Lux performed just as a top-tier sex toy should! With a full charge, you’re able to get several play sessions without having to recharge! The motors don’t bog down much with pressure but do slow down a tad bit. However, considering that the motors are powerful, you simply jump up to the next level or hit the turbo setting. The toy didn’t get hot at all during use, well, with the exception of body heat! Overall, an extremely well-made sex toy that is well worth spending your hard-earned cash on as well as being a sex toy that will last!
Unwrapping the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux: A Look at the Packaging
The packaging is your standard, cardboard box with an interior piece of cardboard that holds the Pulse Duo Lux in place. The exterior of the box does have some adult illustrations, so you probably won’t want to keep it around if you have little ones in the house. Fortunately, the folks at Hot Octopuss thought of everything and included a nice, drawstring, satin bag to store your toy in after use.
Materials and care of the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux
The product description lists the stroker materials as “silicone, ABS” and the same with the wrist remotes. The only way I can see that the stroker is silicone, ABS is that it is mixed in order to give the stroker it’s unique, firm shape. With that in mind, you should always use a water-based lubricant when using the Pulse Duo Lux. However, since the stroker is completely waterproof and submersible, clean up is a breeze. Simply use a mild soap and warm water or a toy cleanser formulated for silicone toys. Then, pat it dry and store it in the enclosed drawstring bag.
The Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux has a few features that I feel are extremely unique compared to other strokers. First, the pulse plate offers targeted stimulation to the underside of the penis, right where the glans meets the shaft. And, with the way its wings wrap around the shaft, you can use it hands-free. Second, the exterior vibrator allows for you to use the toy with a partner, also hands-free; imagine what else your hands can be doing! And finally, the stroker can be used by people with disabilities as well as those suffering from erectile dysfunction. Therefore, this amazing stroker is the perfect sex toy for everyone with a penis!
Specifications and features
|Vibration modes||6 patterns 8 intensities (for each motor)|
|Waterproof||Yes, not remote|
|Battery Life||60 minutes|
|Charging Time||180 minutes|
|Remote Controls||Yes, two watch remotes|
Overall, I think the Pulse Duo Lux is a must-have sex toy for all penis owners! After all, they’ve made vibrators for vaginas forever, so it’s about time they made something unique and thrilling for the penis owners. The product is superbly crafted with quality materials, powerful motors and creativity that you often don’t see in men’s sex toys. The only downside I can see is that it may not fit extremely thick penises; although most men should be able to work around this by putting on the Pulse Duo Lux before becoming erect. Best of all, this toy is absolute perfection for hands-free stimulation, meaning, it’s one of the few male focused sex toys that can be used by those with disabilities as well as men suffering from erectile dysfunction. The Pulse Duo Lux, hands-down, is one of the best sex toys for penises that I have ever has the pleasure of reviewing. So, if you have a penis or love someone who does, this is a must-buy in my book!

Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux vs. Fun Factory MantaOverall Score & Ratings: Both products have high overall scores, but the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux edges out with a 4.5 overall score and a 5.0 Bedbible rating compared to Fun Factory Manta’s 4.2 overall score and 4.0 Bedbible rating. Design Differences: The Fun Factory Manta is much different in design compared to the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux. It’s bigger and more similar to a wand vibrator rather than a stroker. Despite the difference in design, it provides nice and rumbly vibrations around the shaft of a penis. Ease of Use & Features: Fun Factory Manta is easier to use, scoring 90 in this category, compared to the Pulse Duo Lux’s 50. The Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux features two remote controls that are perfect for couples’ play. The Fun Factory Manta doesn’t feature any remote control features, but couples can still use it; it’s just not as versatile.
Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux vs. Lovense GushOverall Score & Ratings: Both products are closely matched in overall score and user ratings. However, the Pulse Duo Lux has a slightly higher Bedbible rating of 5.0 compared to Lovense Gush’s 4.3. Design & Comfort: The Lovense Gush is the closest in design to the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux. However, it’s entirely covered in soft and squishy silicone, making it feel much more comfortable and flexible. App-Enabled Features: The Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux and the Lovense Gush offer good remote control features. The Lovense Gush is app-enabled, making it a great choice for long-distance play or for those who enjoy having unlimited vibration patterns. The Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux features two remote control bands that add a lot of fun during the couple’s play, but they are not as advanced or reliable as the Lovense app.
Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux vs. Man WandOverall Score & Ratings: Both have an overall score of 4.5, but the Man Wand has a perfect user rating 5.0, whereas the Pulse Duo Lux has a 4.1 user rating. Design Differences: The Man Wand also diverges significantly in design from the Pulse Duo Lux. Like the Fun Factory Manta, it’s much more akin to a wand vibrator than a stroker. Its design isn’t as versatile and couple-friendly as the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux, but it might be more comfortable and easier to use for solo time.
Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux vs. Satisfyer Men Heat + VibrationOverall Score & Ratings: The Pulse Duo Lux significantly outperforms the Satisfyer Men Heat + Vibration in both overall score and ratings. The latter has a low overall score 2.6 and a Bedbible rating of 2.0. Design & Features: The Satisfyer Men Heat + Vibration is more like a realistic masturbator with additional features. However, it falls short in quality and the quality of vibrations compared to the Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux. It has no remote-controlled features, so it might not be the best option for couples, but it combines vibrating and heating options for more life-like stimulation.
SummaryThe Hot Octopuss Pulse Duo Lux shines with a stellar Bedbible rating of 5.0, excelling in design and quality. On the other hand, the Fun Factory Manta, which has a Bedbible rating of 4.0, stands out for its unique wand-like design and rumbly vibrations. If you’re looking for app-enabled features, the Lovense Gush is your go-to, boasting a Bedbible rating 4.3 and a comfy silicone cover. The Man Wand, rated 4.0 by Bedbible, offers a different take with its wand design but still delivers on quality. Meanwhile, the Satisfyer Men Heat + Vibration lags behind with a Bedbible rating 2.0, offering a more realistic feel but falling short in quality.
