Storerotica announces the winners of the 11th Annual SE Awards

Honoring the best in the adult storefront sector, and celebrating over a decade of adult retail excellence, STOREROTICA Magazine is proud to announce the winners of the 11th Annual STOREROTICA AWARDS. The SE Awards were presented at the industry gala on the evening of Monday, July 17th, during the summertime ANME Founders Show in Burbank, California. (The complete list of SE Award Winners is attached.)

Sunny Rogers, the renowned sexual health educator and Brand Manager for the Diamond Products family, took the stage as hostess for the evening’s festivities. “The 11th Annual STOREROTICA Awards will go down as one of our most memorable events,” says SE’s PR Manager, Kristofer Kay. “With more awards, more guests, and more esteem shown, to recognize the pleasure product industry is always a thrill. However, this evening was different than years prior simply because along with the celebration came the remembrance of a true legend, Larry Garland.”

In the middle of the ceremony, Mr. Garland—who passed away suddenly last January—was honored by his wife Wanda (now CEO of Eldorado Trading Company) and his son, Preston, in a brief memorial on stage. 

Revering excellence in the adult retail community, the STOREROTICA Awards have revered those in the brick-and-mortar storefront, distributing and manufacturing levels. In celebration of over a decade of recognition, and as a reflection of both the industry’s and the magazine’s evolution, more than 20 categories were given out, including: 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, Sexual Enhancement Company of the Year, Foreign Manufacturer of the Year, Retailer of the Year (for both independent and chain locations), Luxury Line of the Year, International New Product of the Year, LGBT Company of the Year, BDSM Product of the Year and Retailer Favorite of the Year.

And, as another first, the trade publication set out on its initial foray into the consumer sector with the “Consumer’s Choice” Award, which was presented on behalf of STOREROTICA's consumer publication partner, the popular blogger site, kinkly.com and their co-founder Nicole Jansen. Vibratex’s ever-popular Cordless Hitachi Magic Wand took this title. 

Kay adds, “We congratulate all of this year’s winners once more, and thank all the people who continue to make the adult retail industry better year after year.”

Having worked with adult nightclubs for years, Miriam Ramos’ Platinum Solutions knows — and can help safeguard against — the pitfalls adult stores can face when dealing with the banks and card giants of the financial world.

Sexy” is a word you hear and read a lot in this industry. Truthfully, there is nothing “sexy” about credit card processing, fighting chargebacks or “data-breach insurance.”

Sex educator and retailer, Ducky DooLittle, spoke with women throughout the adult retail industry to glean some insight into who inspires them.

My years in the adult retail industry have gifted me with some beautiful friendships. Of course there are countless great guys in this industry but there’s nothing like ending a day at a trade show with a late night sushi dinner with the girls.

fifithe new (clean) kid on the block

Unlike other sleeve masturbators, the Fifi is meant to be thrown away—sort of.
The product’s creator, Dave Bramo, explains what separates the Fifi from other male masturbators.

Male masturbators and germophobes don’t exactly go hand-in-hand (no pun intended). Dave Bramo examined a slew of male masturbators and always came back to the same issue: the cleanup. Bramo, who is admittedly a bit OCD himself, was struck with his a-ha moment of making a no-mess, discreet male masturbator. Enter, the Fifi. Roughly a year later, Bramo, the CEO of WhizWorx, LLC, manufacturer of the Fifi, is looking ahead to smooth sailing after navigating the start-up company waters.
Recently, STOREROTICA had a chance to speak with Bramo to learn how the Fifi separates itself from other masturbators on the market, ...

Ohmibod club_vibeWhat does it mean to be a “luxury” product?

Luxury items are often associated with wealthy or affluent people, but they really aren’t just for the rich and famous. All of us have an inclination to splurge on non-utilitarian objects to pamper and treat ourselves to something special. While spending extra money on a higher-end product can seem frivolous, there is something to be said for a product made of superior materials with beautiful craftsmanship. Not only do they just feel good, they can last a lifetime.
