BALTIMORE — Online retailer Dickz Toyz has been nominated for a 2014 XBIZ Award in the category of Online Retailer of the Year — Specialty.
“This was a dream come true,” said Dick Ross, owner. “I had just exited the rehabilitation hospital after a 19 hour of surgery to remove a baseball sized tumor from under my eye called an Ameloblastoma when I was told the news. I cried like a baby. To be in recognized by the industry is a dream come true. It’s the second time but it feels just as exciting.”
Dickz Toyz says it will be offering yearlong free workshops and samples of the fetish cum lube, Spunk Lube, during the holiday season to celebrate. The company will also offer a special discounted rate for XXXplore 2014, the only sex toy expo and retreat for men in Atlanta.
Ross started Dickz Toyz in 2010 to serve the urban gay market with sex toy reviews, free workshops, advice and lifestyle information. Within two years, Ross was selected to become a Sexpert by California Exotic Novelties.
Dickz Toyz has held events in every major urban market exposing thousands of men to pleasure products while promoting safe sex.
“Our community spends thousands of dollars on products. It is my goal to create a product line that reflects this unique community. This is an untapped market,” Ross said.
The 2014 XBIZ Awards will take place Jan. 24, in Los Angeles.
