Since its debut on the market, the Semenette has been embraced by many outside of the LGBT community, including the BDSM, transgendered, kink and fetish communities, and has aided in 15 successful conceptions according to feedback Berman has received from her personal friends. “I’ve invented something that I know works,” she mentions when asked about how her product is being received by the public. “The response has been incredible! I only had vision of this being used by same sex couples like myself, but once I started talking to stores, buyers and developers in the sex toy industry people became excited about this product because there aren’t many on the market.”
Stephanie’s success in due in part to her hands on approach with her brand and her openness to be completely available to her customer base. “I always make myself available to my customers and lend myself as a resource because I’ve used this product. My number is right on my website so people can reach me directly with their questions.”
The Semenette is currently in its second stage of prototyping to produce a “non-realistic” version created from a softer silicon blend available in four basic colors. This Semenette V2 is currently being supported by an Indiegogo fund and intends to meet the demands of lesbians who have complained about the first version’s realistic phallic appearance.
The LGBT community has made its way into mainstream spotlight and Stephanie couldn’t be more thrilled about the timely release of her invention. “My partner and I actually successfully conceived our daughter with this,” States Berman. “I’m not just trying to sell you something. This is something that I wholeheartedly believe in and push because I’ve used it myself, and that lends a lot to people’s security and confidence in the product. The fact that I can sit here and say that I developed this product on my own and thought of every little detail and was able to successfully use it, I think it sets the standards that I have set in providing people with a quality product.”
