About the Product 

Pulse Duo, aka “The Guyburator” or Pulse III Duo, is very original in design.  Completely coated in silicone, this marvel can also be used hands free with the included remote. The Pulse Duo features 9 powerful speeds and 5 unique patterns. As an added benefit, the Pulse Duo is completely waterproof! Recharging is very easy with the included magnetic USB charging cable. Charging takes roughly 4 hours and you’ll get 2 hours of play on a single charge. Additionally, a draw-string bag is included to store the Pulse Duo and magnetic charging cable. 


How it works

The Pulse Duo is like nothing we’ve ever seen before and is not your typical masturbation device. In fact, this toy is very versatile as it can be used alone or with a partner. The Pulse Duo is easy to control using three different buttons located on the side.  To get started, simply insert the penis into the opening. The soft silicone “wings” on the Pulse will gently hug the penis and keep it in place. Once properly charged, simply press and hold the power button on the left side for a couple of seconds.

Once powered, you’ll immediately notice vibrations from the oscillating pulse plate. Starting on its lowest setting, you can adjust the speed and intensity by pressing the (+) button on the right side. To decrease intensity, simply press the (-) button. With 5 unique patterns, these can be switched by quickly pressing the power button. The wonderful thing with this modern-day marvel is that you can start using it with a flaccid, or erect, penis.

As a solo toy, it can be used in two ways. Firstly, when used with lubricant, Pulse Duo becomes a revolutionary next-generation masturbator allowing you to use the toy to stroke the penis. Alternatively, lubricant-free, it acts more like a static stimulator. In this case the oscillating pulse plate provides stimulation direct to the frenulum. As a couples toy, the soft silicone underside also has an added motor to provide vibrating sensations for her! For proper stimulation, straddle your partner so Pulse is pressed comfortably against your labia and let the fun begin! Once on top of your partner, simply press the button on the remote control to get started.  

When finished using your Pulse Duo, be sure to clean it thoroughly. The best way to clean it is by washing it with hot, soapy water since it is waterproof. The Pulse Duo has many ripples and ridges to it so you’ll want to pay close attention to those areas to ensure lubricants and body fluids do not get trapped there. The last thing anyone wants is a bacterial infection due to an improperly cleaned toy.

Our Experience

Liam says: I was really skeptical about the Pulse Duo upon unboxing. It felt really heavy in my hand, and, the silicone wings seemed to be quite firm. I thought the firmness of the wings might cause some pain when in use with Robin. Since it is fairly heavy, I also assumed that it may not stay in place properly during hands-free fun. Boy was I wrong! I’m not very keen on solo play as I’d rather always include Robin when using a toy. However, this one seemed different to me so I decided to get more familiar with this mysterious toy alone. My first time experience involved ‘static’ play. Without any lube, and while flaccid, I placed the Pulse III on my penis and turned it on. I immediately felt the oscillating pulse plate against the underside of my penis and it felt wonderful! Much to my surprise, the silicone wings felt very soft and, somehow, kept the toy in place. I didn’t use any lubrication the first time around as I simply wanted to see if it could produce an erection. Without any stroking motions whatsoever, I just laid back and let the toy do its work. I kept track of the time and noticed that I was as hard as a rock within about 4 minutes. I was truly impressed at this point! I messed around with all of the settings and had lots of fun with each. However, I did not ejaculate from this type of usage.

My second time around involved using it as a stroker/massager. This time it was truly an experience that would never be forgotten. Once properly lubed, I placed my penis into the Pulse Duo. Upon turning it on, I immediately increased the speed to its highest setting. I was erect within about 2 minutes. Once I was fully hard, I slowly began stroking my penis. The toy’s pulse plate felt wonderful while sliding along the underside of my entire shaft. It also worked well when turning it upside down. I could feel the strong vibrations throughout my entire length regardless of the setting that it was on.  The control buttons were easy accessible and did not prove to be any sort of distraction while in action.  I really liked the steady vibration the best and it was during this setting that got me very aroused. Once extremely aroused, I tried the different pulse settings. After changing the pulse a few times, I found a very fast pulse setting that put me over the edge. It was at this setting that ended up giving me a mind-blowing orgasm while about 10 minutes into my playtime.

All-in-all, I was really impressed with the Pulse Duo. It worked really well for solo play. But, using it for couples play made it much more enjoyable. I’ll let Robin tell you more about our experience together.

Robin says: When Liam unveiled this toy to me, I wasn’t sure why he referenced it as a “couples’ toy.” While looking at it, I just couldn’t figure out how it was going to provide me with pleasure. It looked like something built just for a guy. I asked Liam to tell me more about it and he explained how we would use it together. It wasn’t initially clear to me that there was a separate motor on the backside designed just for me. Just before our first try together, Liam told me about his solo experiences. With his experiences in my mind, I took control the Pulse III Duo. With Liam completely flaccid, I lubed him up and slid his penis inside and made sure that the head of his cock was placed against the oscillating pulse plate. It took a couple of minutes and I was surprised by how hard it made him. Now that he was hard, I continued to stroke him with it. I could tell he was enjoying the sensations. I, on the other hand, was starting to get very aroused. No longer could I just sit back and watch, it was now time for me to get some pleasure of my own. With Liam on his back, I spread my legs wide, straddling his mid-section. With the toy pressed against my labia, I slowly started rocking backing and forth on Liam. With the remote in my hand, I was able to intensify the vibrations with the simple press of a button. The strong vibrations, in combination with the pulsing of his own setting, sent waves of pleasure to both my clit as well as my entire body. I ended up having a really intense orgasm!

The second time we used it together, we tried something a bit different. During foreplay, we kept the Pulse Duo as close to the base of Liam’s penis as possible and put it on the highest setting. With the head of his cock sticking out from the toy, he teased my clit and vaginal opening with his bare penis. Again, this sent strong vibrations into me and I was almost able to orgasm.

Pulse Duo also works well during our BDSM sessions. With Liam tied up, I’m able to use it on him with the purpose of edging. For three to four minutes of use at a time, I am able to really get him worked up before shutting it off and making him calm back down. I can’t say enough just how wonderful this toy is and how it’s added a nice little spark to our bedroom fun. I love, love, love it!

Recommended Use:

Perfect for male solo masturbation, you’re sure to be pleased with Pulse Duo! This product is perfect for beginners as well as those that have more experience with toy play. Our friends at Hot Octopuss have made claim that the Pulse Duo is also perfect for men suffering from erectile dysfunction. Although we’re not be able to prove this ourselves, we believe this to be true. If you’re currently suffering from erectile dysfunction, please feel free to give this a try and let us know if it helps. Due to its two-motor design, we strongly recommend this for couples play. Although the Pulse Duo worked great for us, we understand that it may not be suitable for everyone. We can foresee this as being uncomfortable for men with an unusually large girth as the wings may be spread too far apart thus making it harder for the toy to stay attached to the penis. Or, with larger girth, the edges of the toy’s wings could possibly cause some discomfort by digging into the sides, or top, of the penis. Hopefully you and your partner will have the same outcome as us…pure pleasure.
