Get ready for some Pillow Talk: Hot Octopuss is bringing the world's first mobile sexpert to New York City! On October 5th, their mobile four-poster bed will be taking to the streets of Manhattan, and sexpert Jenny Block will be inviting you to hop on board.

Longtime EDGE contributor Jenny Block, author of "O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm" and "The Ultimate Guide to Solo Sex" is inviting New Yorkers to jump in between the sheets and indulge in a little pillow talk to get one-on-one advice on their own sex lives and sexual health.

"We still don't talk about sex as freely and openly as we should," said Block. "A great sex life is all about great communication. We have to talk to our partners. We also desperately need a culture of sex positivity where we can talk about all things sex without any sense of shame. This event with Hot Octopuss is such a cool way to get the word out that great sex is all about having good clean fun!"

Research reveals that 43 percent of women and 31 percent of American men suffer from sexual dysfunction and that 69 percent of Americans are simply underwhelmed, unhappy or bored with their sex lives. Chatting with a sexpert like Block can help you better understand your needs -- and your partners -- and give your sex life a boost.

Hot Octopuss welcomes men, women, singles and couples of any sexuality to jump on board; as the brand continues on its mission to champion sex, not stigma and break down long standing taboos attached to talking openly and honestly about sex.

The Hot Octopuss Pillow Talk service is yet another venture in Hot Octopuss' mission to encourage conversation around sexual health and break down the stigma and taboos around sex and masturbation.

"Sex can be a difficult subject to talk about for some people but it needn't be. The more open we are about questions and issues, the more we break down barriers and the better sex lives and relationships we'll ultimately enjoy," said Adam Lewis, Hot Octopuss co-founder and designer of PULSE, the world's first Guybrator. "Talking about sex should be as easy as talking about what to order via Seamless, and that's what we're setting out to achieve with the Pillow Talk concept."

'Pillow Talk' starts outside the Flatiron building on 23rd Street and 5th Avenue at 9 a.m., and will finish at the same location at 5 p.m.

Those eager to ride with Jenny can either email their request to or tweet using the hashtag #pillowtalk to book their mobile session for them and their partner(s). Reference your location and the mobile sexpert could pay you a personal visit (pending availability). Keep your eyes peeled for the bed arriving.
