LOS ANGELES — At this past week’s 2017 Adultex Awards, Sportsheets founder and CEO Tom Stewart received the “Service to the Industry” award.
“I was so surprised and am so honored to receive this ‘Service to the Industry’ award,” Stewart said. “I know someone in my office knew! Seriously though, what an honor to be recognized in this group of industry heavyweights.”
At the end of his short acceptance speech Stewart thanked all the American, Australian and New Zealand troops for their dedicated service. He added, “Working with the veterans gives you a greater appreciation for life.”
Stewart served in the military for 20 years, first as a U.S. Marine and then in the Navy. According to a representative, his ties to the armed forces is what pushed him to support the troops and to keep military couples connected with their “new” normal of intimacy.
“Helping these men and women achieve some semblance of a normal sex life and improving the levels of intimacy for them and their spouses is what drives me to design new products that will keep these couples together for a long time to come,” Stewart added. “If I can show one couple how to achieve a position that they have been unable to accomplish in the past — then it’s all worth it.”
“We would like to thank Calvista for putting on another amazing Adultex show,” he concluded. “13th year — amazing! Roger, Susy and everyone works so hard to give us all a great venue to meet our industry friends and meet those new to the industry. We are always excited to bring our products and show them to the best gathering of retailers in Australia’s southern hemisphere.”
