The Semenette is such a brilliant, obvious solution that it's going to be hard to believe there was a time before, when people made do without it. It's utility will be immediately apparent to those loving couples looking to create a more intimate, sexy, shared experience during insemination. And even if you don't use it for that application? Oh well, you have a novel sex toy and your purchase supports the kind of social justice causes we can all get behind. Can never have to much of that."

“Being in the women’s health industry and being a lesbian woman, I realized that there was a lack of products available to women that wanted to try and get pregnant in the privacy of their own home. It was when my wife and I started trying to conceive at home that I realized how “national geographic” our experience was and how incredible it would be to have something available that would not only help us get pregnant but have some fun in the “trying” process. Trying to conceive is an extremely expensive process and since a doctor is doing the insemination, it leaves out the partner that is not carrying the baby. The main idea behind The Semenette™ was to give an affordable and FUN option for women that want to try and make a baby at home. My hope is that the Semenette™ will help women and couples achieve their goal of starting a family and will allow them a truly authentic and enjoyable experience just as it has for my wife and I!” - Stephanie Berman, President and Inventor
“As a lesbian couple, my partner and I knew right away we wanted to try and make a baby in the privacy of our own home. We wanted to be as far away from doctors as possible. When we researched options for home insemination we were disappointed to find that there was hardly anything available. That’s when we stumbled upon The Semenette™. We were at our local adult store looking for a funny birthday present for our friend and there it was. Their sleek packaging is what initially caught our eye and we decided to take a closer look. To our amazement, The Semenette™ was EXACTLY the kind of product we were looking for! We immediately purchased it. We had our donor “on call” and when our time was ready, we couldn’t wait to try out our “baby maker”. We were both extremely impressed with the design of the product. It was comfortable and allowed for a very romantic and fun experience, just as promised! We are hopeful that this will help us create the family we want and can’t wait to tell all our friends about it! This is the way all lesbians should make babies! Thank you Stephanie for making such a wonderful product catered to the lesbian community!”

"I am a single, 36 year old woman that has spent the majority of my life focused on my career and finding the right man. Once my career hit its peak and I was still without the right man (what are the odds?! ;) I decided to start looking into options to fulfill my desire to start a family. I did a lot of research on the internet about being a single parent and some options that were available for me to start trying. While I am a successful woman, I did not want to have to spend thousands of my hard earned dollars on invasive and “public” treatments with a doctor. That’s when I started looking into home insemination as an option and when I learned about The Semenette™. I am what you would call an “outside the box” thinker and I was quite intrigued by the idea of being able to use The Semenette™ in the privacy of my own home. I typically don’t use sex toys but after reading the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy I decided to step outside my comfort zone and try a little something new, hence The Semenette™! This product seemed like the perfect solution for trying to get pregnant and not having to use the turkey baster in my kitchen and also having a little fun in the process. I love how classy the packaging of the product is. When I received my order I felt like I was opening a Tiffany’s jewelry box! I can’t say enough good things about The Semenette™ and I plan on using it not only to try and get pregnant but for a long time after for fun!"
"We just wanted to let you know we received our package. Thank you so much for inventing this product. We are so excited about having our own family. You don't understand how happy and appreciative we are for the extra tubes, always being honest with us, for doing everything you said you were going to do, and again for inventing a product for the gay/lesbian community. You are an amazing person Stephanie. You are going to be the first person to know if we get pregnant. Also, congratulations to you and your wife on getting pregnant. We wish you good luck with your business, all your endeavors, and on becoming a parent. Thank you again!"

"DW and I tried for 5 months and here is what we did that worked for us on try 5. We got this product called the Semenette. It's just a fun toy that has a special tube inside where you put the goods. We were able to have a very intimate experience and DW was able to inseminate me directly from the toy. It was absolutely magical and I swear part of what made it work was the connection between us."
"I haven’t been this excited over a new product in a long time. The Semenette addressess the main function that I envy CIS men, and that is probably true for a lot of us. This is a brilliant innovation and I applaud them for producing it in the USA out of medical grade Platinum silicone– not to mention in three skin tones!"
