The Screaming O Nominated in 5 Award Categories

LOS ANGELES — The Screaming O and three of its sex toy brands have been nominated for AVN Awards in five categories, including Best Sex Toy Company (Large) and Best Overall Sex Toy Line.

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by such a well-known media outlet that puts on the biggest, most popular adult industry awards show of the year,” The Screaming O partner Keith Caggiano said. “We can imagine it wasn’t an easy task whittling down each category’s nominees, and The Screaming O would like to thank everyone in the biz who pre-nominated our products. We couldn’t do it without your support!”

The Screaming O’s Carnal Carnival collection, a series of “thrill ride” products designed with the more advance sex toy user in mind, was nominated for Best Overall Sex Toy Line.

Nominated for Best Sex Toy for Couples was the PropellO, a cockring that boasts two vertical bullet vibrators.

In the Best Sex Toy for Men category lies the BangO, a thoughtfully designed cockring with three 18k gold plated swing balls that lightly tap his taint and back-door pleasure zones — an area often overlooked during sex.

The Screaming O also was included in the Best Packaging Innovation category for its work with DreamZone Entertainment for “Sex and the City the XXX Parody: In Search of the Screaming O.” Each DVD features a free Screaming O Vibrating Ring along with special features.

The 2011 AVN Awards Show is slated for Jan. 8, 2011, at the Pearl Theatre, inside the Palms Hotel & Casino, and will be taped for broadcast this spring on the Showtime Network. The show will be taped for broadcast in spring 2011 on the Showtime Network.

“The mainstream exposure that comes along with these nominations is the best exposure The Screaming O can ask for,” Caggiano said. “Being featured on Showtime will be the sweetest icing on the cake following an amazing year of TV guest spots and Scream Team-hosted events around the country.” For more information about The Screaming O, visit Check out The Screaming O’s latest sexy news and events information at
