Nominees Announced for 12th Annual StorErotica Awards

CLEARWATER, Fla.—StorErotica Magazine has announced the nominees for the 12th annual StorErotica Awards, which take place July 16, during the ANME Founders Show.

“The SE Awards is our favorite time of the year here at the magazine,” said SE’s Marketing & PR Director Kristofer Kay. “Not only do we come to celebrate the industry’s accomplishments en masse but we’re able to distinguish those talented professionals who are striving to make our community stronger. With continued gratitude to the ANME Founders we plan on having another wonderful evening in Burbank.

Returning once again to host the evening’s festivities will be the brand manager for Diamond Products and ACS certified sexologist Sunny Rodgers.

“StorErotica is excited to announce our final nominees for this year’s SE Awards,” says Kay. “Each brand and storefront represents outstanding achievement within the adult retail community, and we are once again honored to be the publication that recognizes them.”

Nominees for the 2018 SE Awards were gathered in part by pre-nomination voting at the site, which was live from April 20 to May 4. Once completed, SE’s editorial staff compiled the votes along with independent polling that was conducted personally with retailers, distributors and manufacturers, to create this Final SE Awards ballot.

The final ballot for the SE Awards will launch on Friday, June 1. Votes will be accepted at starting that day lasting until June 15.

For more than a decade, the StorErotica Awards have revered those in both the brick and mortar storefront, distributing, and manufacturing levels.  The 20 returning categories honored this year will include mainstays: Pleasure Product Company of the Year, Distributor of the Year, Fetish Company of the Year,  Boutique Brand of the Year, Lubricant Company of the Year, New Product of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Sexual Enhancement Company of the Year, Foreign Manufacturer of the Year, Male Pleasure Product of the Year, Body Care Line of the Year and two Retailer of the Year Awards (for independent and chain locations).

Three new categories have also been introduced this year: Merchandiser of the Year, Product Packaging of the Year and Executive Of The Year. Weaving through the SE Awards this year will be two very special awards. The first will recognize another notable luminary as we induct them into the SE Hall of Fame as well as recognizing the sex toy blogging sector with SE’s Consumer Choice Award. The latter will be presented by SE’s B2C editorial partner,

All ANME attendees and exhibitors are invited to join in for food and drinks at the 2018 StorErotica Awards Show on July 16. For more information, visit, email SE’s Kristofer Kay at [email protected] or call (727) 723-8827.
