Entrepreneurial Soccer Mom Launches Subscription Site For Male Sexual Needs


Dee Bertino is not your average suburban mom. An attorney, board member for an African charity, rotary member and uniquely business-minded professional, Dee finds herself at the forefront of an industry that is often regarded as unsavory. Dee and her husband, Bob Bertino, owners of Fantasy Gifts, hold a combined 45 years in the adult retail toy industry and operate two stores in New Jersey.

Dee is now launching her newest venture, "The Hand Pilot." Responding to the latest statistics which show Millennial men are dating less and spending more time at home, along with increasing sales of men's masturbators, a light bulb went off. The Hand Pilot, a monthly subscription box built for men to improve their solo sexual experience, was born.

What makes The Hand Pilot unique? Dee responded, "Quite simply, there is no direct competition. We are the first subscription box service dedicated to male masturbation. Our mission is to offer men the industry's best products so they can achieve the highest level of pleasure." Dee further explained. "Our biggest hurdle is building a brand on a desire that is completely normal but rarely discussed. While it's commonly accepted that men masturbate, there's also a stigma associated with it.

Conversely, it is a misnomer that women rarely masturbate but when they do it's often regarded as socially acceptable and even considered sexy, therefore, more products and marketing is geared towards women. It's time for men to 'take matters into their own hands.' We want to acknowledge men's needs and offer products that will deliver a more powerful and gratifying experience."

The Hand Pilot website's creative and classy design is built on the fun and cheeky theme of being your own pilot and choosing the flight plan you desire while never leaving the comfort of your home. Dee recognized the need for couples play too, which is why she's included an option to send products to you and your co-pilot (partner). These items are designed to be used together and will enhance the sexual experience of both pilots.

With the recent launch of her new webstore, Dee is recruiting members looking to earn their wings. To learn more about the first monthly subscription box for the modern man who wants to take self-gratification to new heights, visit www.TheHandPilot.com.
