LAS VEGAS, March 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Empowered Products, Inc. (EMPO), an emerging leader in the high-growth sexual wellness sector through its trademark PINK® and GunOil® brands, is proud to have the highest rated cream, for self pleasure, in the April 2013 issue of Penthouse Magazine. In a review of six leading brands, conducted by Martin Downs, M.P.H., Stroke 29 by GunOil was the only masturbation cream to attain a four-star rating in overall performance, thickness, slickness and endurance. Scott Fraser, president and CEO of Empowered Products, proclaimed, "This is one of my proudest moments since founding Empowered Products in 2002. I have been an avid reader of Penthouse Magazine going way back to when I borrowed each monthly issue from my parents' nightstand. Today, I consistently look to Penthouse for guidance in sexual wellness and I regularly use Stroke 29 to clear my mind of carnal distractions in order to make better decisions throughout the day."
