Voting Open For StorErotica Soft Goods Awards

CLEARWATER, Fla.—Industry publication StorErotica has announced voting is now under way for the Soft Goods portion of the StorErotica Awards.

Winners will be announced during the International Lingerie Show in Las Vegas.

The ballot, consisting of seven categories, is available online at

This year’s soft product awards will include StorErotica’s Special Focus Award, honoring one Special Focus editorial seen in the magazine over the past six issues. In 2013, the StorErotica Special Focus Award honors eight companies who were featured in the Special Focus on Male Intimates that appeared in the August 2012 issue. 

“The phrase Male Intimates is no longer an oxymoron,” said Kristofer Kay of StorErotica. “As we’ve seen in the pages of the magazine and the exhibitors at ILS, male intimate wear is one of the fastest growing market sectors in adult retail. Boxers be damned.” 

The StorErotica Awards will be presented Monday, Sept. 23 during the ILS opening night fashion party gala. 

“Presenting this portion of our awards has become standard at ILS,” Kay said. “The fashion show draws in thousands of industry professionals who, by and large, reflect our magazine’s readership. It’s a perfect pairing for the evening.”
