Sliquid Lubricants Receives Best Sex Accessory Nom for 2011 AVN Awards

DALLASHealth-conscious lube and lotion developer Sliquid has been nominated for Best Sex Accessory by the AVN Media Network, the organization responsible for the adult industry’s biggest awards show held each year to culminate the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. This is the first year that pleasure product companies such as Sliquid have been included in the event.

“The Sliquid team is honored to be recognized by AVN and the industry; it’s not easy being this green, and it’s great to know that our peers appreciate and acknowledge our hard work,” Sliquid CEO Dean Elliott said. “It’s about time sexual lifestyle products were brought into the world-famous ‘Oscars of Porn’ and the team and I look forward to seeing what happens in Vegas!”

Sliquid lubricants recently underwent a makeover inside the bottle and out with a modern look and improved formula featuring even greener versions of its existing natural ingredients, continuing the brand’s quest to find and use the safest, simplest components.

The two significant ingredient upgrades involved swapping a nontoxic hypoallergenic additive and broad spectrum preservative for two natural alternatives that not only offer better results but also are naturally derived – making for a more eco-friendly, organic product. Not only is Sliquid proud to offer this one-of-a-kind lubricant, but also to be in the running for a prestigious AVN Award alongside some of the industry’s top names.

“For almost 30 years, the AVN Awards have been known as the premiere awards for the adult entertainment industry,” said Sherri L. Shaulis, senior editor of pleasure products for AVN. “And this year, for the first time ever, companies and items from the pleasure products side are being recognized. The inclusion of this segment is longer overdue, and there are some fantastic products and companies nominated this year."

The 2011 AVN Awards Show is slated for Jan. 8, 2011, at the Pearl Theatre, inside the Palms Hotel & Casino, and will be taped for broadcast this spring on the Showtime Network.

The 2011 AVN Awards will be co-hosted by 2010 AVN Female Performer of the Year Tori Black and Digital Playground contract girl Riley Steele, with a mainstream comic sidekick who will be named in the coming weeks. The show culminates the 2011 Adult Novelty Expo, Jan. 6-8, at the Sands Expo Center.
