SE-Xi-logoStorerotica announces the finalists for the 2017 SE Awards.

STOREROTICA Magazine is proud to announce the businesses, industry professionals, and retail outlets that have made its 2017 SE Awards Final Ballot. Sex educator Sunny Rodgers will host the 11th Annual SE Awards — SE Xi —on July 17th at the ANME Show in Burbank, California.

For over a decade, the STOREROTICA Awards have revered those in the brick-and-mortar storefront, distributing, and manufacturing levels.  This year’s 11th Annual SE Awards (SE Xi) will once again be presented during the ANME Founders Show on July 17th, and will honor companies in over 20 categories. The Final Ballot for the SE Awards will be live on June 1st, and this site will accept votes until June 15th.

SunnyRogersSEAwards3SE is also excited to announce that renowned sex educator Sunny Rodgers will be hosting the evening’s awards festivities. Sunny has worked in the pleasure product industry since 2000 and received her Clinical Sexologist certification in early 2017. Sunny serves as an Ambassador for the American Sexual Health Association and is a member of the World Association of Sex Coaches. She received honorable mention for SE magazine’s “Most Influential Women of 2017” and was voted XBIZ’s 2016 “Community Figure of the Year.”

“I want to thank the STOREROTICA team for allowing me to be the host of their esteemed event,” says Rodgers, who is currently the Brand Manager and Sexual Health Educator for the Diamond Products family of brands (Pipedream Products, Jimmyjane and Sir Richard’s). “I am deeply honored and excited for the upcoming SE Awards Show. And, I wish the best of luck to all the nominees!”

The 20 returning categories honored this year will include these 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, as well as two Retailer of the Year Awards (for independent and chain locations). 

Other award categories added in 2016 include 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.

A first for the SE Awards this year will also be SE’s initial foray into the consumer sector with the “Consumer’s Choice” Award. This award will be presented on behalf of SE’s B2C editorial partner, Kinkly.com.

Nominees for these awards were gathered in part from input received during the “pre-nominations” voting at this website; pre-nominations were accepted from May 5th to May 19th.

“The SE Awards is our favorite time of the year here at the magazine,” says SE’s PR Manager, 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.”

All ANME attendees and exhibitors are invited to join in for food and drinks at the 11th Annual SE Awards Show.

so 2017 aprilBrings experience to credit card processing for the adult industry

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.

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.
