StorErotica Announces Nominees For 10th Annual Awards Ceremony

CLEARWATER, Fla.—StorErotica Magazine has announced the nominees for the 10th Annual StorErotica Awards, which will take place Monday, July 18, during the ANME Founders Show.

Returning for her third time as awards hostess will be Kelly Shibari.

“I’m so honored to be asked to host the StorErotica Awards for the third year in a row,” Shibari said. “The show is a blast, and I love celebrating the companies and people who shape the pleasure products industry. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again, and promise another fun, fast-paced show!”

The final ballot for the SE Awards will launch for voting on Wednesday, May 11. Votes will be accepted at starting that day, and the site will accept votes until Monday, May 23.

Recognizing excellence in the adult retail community, the StorErotica Awards have revered those in both the brick-and-mortar storefront, distributing, and manufacturing levels.  In celebration of 10 years of StorErotica Awards, and as a reflection of both the industry’s and the magazine’s evolution, seven new categories have been introduced for the 2016 submission season, including:  Brand Ambassador of the Year; New Product of the Year (International); Luxury Line of the Year; LGBT Company of the Year; Adult Game/Gag Gift of the Year; BDSM Product of the Year; and Retailer Favorite of the Year. This brings the grand total of SE Award categories to an even 20.

“Each year we joke about being the fastest awards show in the industry,” said StorErotica’s PR Manager, Kristofer Kay. “That’s been our blessing and our curse, really, but being that this is our tenth year we felt like expanding the ceremony to emulate the dynamic growth of our industry. The world of erotic retail is constantly evolving to adapt to new clientele, and our awards will always strive to match this evolution. StorErotica is honored to distinguish those professionals and brands who contribute to the overall vitality of the adult retail community.”

All ANME attendees and exhibitors are invited to join in for food and drinks at the StorErotica Award Show.

“From our first StorErotica Awards Show 10 years ago at one of the largest adult entertainment facilities in the country—Sapphire in Las Vegas—to our new home at the ANME Founders Show, it’s always been our pleasure to honor the pleasure products industry,” said Kay.  “We’re very grateful to ANME Director Valerie Jones, her team and, of course, the Founders, for giving StorErotica such a grand stage to present our awards and to honor the best that our industry has to offer.”
