10th Annual StorErotica Awards Winners Announced

BURBANK, Calif. — The winners of the 10th Annual StorErotica Awards were presented during an industry gala yesterday evening during the summertime ANME Founders Show in Burbank, California.

For the third year in a row, adult industry maven and PR guru Kelly Shibari hosted the festivities.

“This year the 10th Annual StorErotica Awards delivered in style and spectacle,” SE’s PR Manager Kristofer Kay said. “Not only was it our largest ever celebration, but it felt like the culmination of everything the magazine set out to accomplish a decade ago. With a capacity attendee turnout, a delicious dinner buffet, Kelly Shibari once again proving she’s the best hostess we’ve ever had, and a terrific venue such as the ANME show, we will look back on this night fondly for quite a while.”

This year the StorErotica Awards added seven new categories, bringing the total to 20, which the company says were chosen based on pre-nomination submissions. The seven new categories introduced for the 2016 submission season, included: Brand Ambassador of the Year; New Product of the Year (International); 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.
