Give the gift of self-love this Valentines thanks to Hot Octopuss’ sex toy & sick note service

This Valentine’s Day, single men can indulge in some self loving, thanks to a sneaky sick note issued by award-winning sex toy brand, Hot Octopuss. The sick note, available on the brand’s website, grants the user a day away from the office to stay at home and look after number one.

  • Hot Octopuss, maker of the world’s first Guybrator™, is on a mission to reduce the stigma around male sex toys as well as advocating the health benefits of masturbation.
  • The company wants to help single men look after themselves this Valentine’s Day so is prescribing “one full day in the sack”, away from their busy work lives to indulge in some much needed alone time.
  • The tongue-in-cheek doctors note also recommends, “One PULSE III SOLO, a box of tissues, massage oil, and plenty of water” as well as advising “to remain in an intimate environment for a minimum of eight hours.”

For a limited time only, singletons can head to to snap up their certified sick note, and spend the day of love looking out for number one.


Adam Lewis, Hot Octopuss Founder and PULSE creator said:

“We spend thousands of dollars every year celebrating our friends being in relationships – hen dos, weddings, baby showers. Love is a wonderful thing, but where’s the day to celebrate singletons?”

Adam continued:

“This Valentine’s Day we’re championing those who choose not to be in a relationship or those that just want to give themselves a bit of love. Valentine’s Day should be for everyone, and our sick note service means it doesn’t just have to be about gifting roses and red wine – you can take the day off work and treat yourself instead! Turn off your emails and put your phone on silent. There’s only one piece of tech you need this Valentine’s Day.”

 The FREE sick note service will be available via until midnight February 14, 2017.

All Hot Octopuss products are available to purchase via the Hot Octopuss website, and through various retailers worldwide.
