CHINO, Calif. — California Exotic Novelties received two EAN Erotixxx Awards at the 2011 eroFame Show.

“We’re deeply appreciative of the awards bestowed on us,” Colvin said. “Having our sexual health and wellness accomplishments recognized is incredibly validating for us. The individual award is also very flattering. The industry has changed so much since I began making novelties eighteen years ago — I’m honored by the recognition, thank you EAN for an incredible show and these wonderful awards.”

This was the first time California Exotic Novelties featured a booth at the eroFame Show. With a market strategy that includes expansion into a broad spectrum of European geographic markets, California Exotic Novelties displayed its newest product release for European distributors.

“We had a very successful tradeshow at eroFame,” said Jackie White, vice president of sales for California Exotic Novelties.

“European distributors received our latest catalog, Intimacy is an Art Form and everyone loved our newest products. Receiving two EAN Erotixxx Awards is the icing on the cake.”

The company said it has made sexual health and wellness education part of its corporate mission.

“Under Susan’s guidance we’ve implemented programs like Toy Time, our Sexual Health and Wellness blog with Dr. Jessica and Ryan Browning-Cassaday, CalExotics.TV, our QR Code Signage, our Plan-o-Grams, and more, “ said Al Bloom, director of marketing for California Exotic Novelties.

“These are all initiatives driven by our sexual health and wellness mission statement. These awards reflect Susan’s dedication to that mission, thank you EAN for the esteemed recognition.”
