Celebrating the best in erotic retail since 2007, STOREROTICA Magazine has announced its award winners for 2020. While this year is certainly unlike any other, the fact remains that adult product manufacturers, distributors, key industry executives and retailers alike deserve to be celebrated for their hard work and dedication to their businesses, their clients and the industry at large. Thus, the 2020 SE Awards moved forward and STOREROTICA is proud to announce its 2020 award recipients.

“Though this year has presented our industry with unprecedented challenges we believe that the SE Awards are a critical part of what we do here at STOREROTICA,” says Kristofer Kay, PR and Marketing Director for SE Magazine. “While COVID continues to affect our world, we look to honor those vendors and retailers who are allowing nothing to stand in their way in creating exemplary products and progressive customer education all the while continuing to make strides themselves to reinforce the perseverance and vitality of the adult retail business.”

For over 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 include mainstays: Pleasure Product Company of the Year, Distributor of the Year, Fetish Company of the Year, Lubricant Company of the Year, New Product of the Year, Sexual Enhancement Company of the Year, Foreign Manufacturer of the Year, Male Pleasure Product of the Year, and two Retailer of the Year Awards (for independent and chain locations) along with Merchandiser of the Year, and Executive Of The Year.

“Rather than suppress the accolades achieved by vendors and retailers against seemingly insurmountable odds we look to applaud their ingenuity, character and vision as leaders of our industry; it just so happens to be from afar for the time being,” says Kay. “This new normal won’t affect our feelings towards a community we consider home. SE is looking forward to the day where we can once again congratulate this year’s winners in person.”
