Kim Airs Set for AVN Hall of Fame Induction

LOS ANGELES—Kim Airs has announced her official induction into the legendary AVN Hall of Fame, capping her over three decades in the pleasure products industry.

“This is certainly an incredible honor to be recognized by my peers in the industry I love so much,” Airs said. “After being in so many aspects of the sexual health and wellness sphere since 1993, and a consumer since 1987, I am so grateful to be acknowledged by my peers for my contributions to this important segment of the community.”

Kim opened the groundbreaking sexuality boutique, Grand Opening!, in 1993, in Brookline, Massachusetts, when she left her high-ranking job at Harvard to create a store that was comfortable for everyone to shop for their personal needs. Her award-winning store remained open for 12 years. Afterwards she moved into sex education, sales, product and brand development, writing, and went on the road training as she represented companies large and small.

Kim has been featured in countless media and created the first amateur adult film festival in 2000, which became a long-running documentary on HBO. While in Brookline, Kim became a prominent business representative for many years as Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce.

She added, “I am as passionate about this industry and sexual wellness in general since my introduction to the adult world in 1987 and this honor is truly a pinnacle of praise for my ceaseless fascination of all things pleasurable.”

The 2024 AVN Awards will take place on Saturday, January 27.
