Doc Johnson Shines at 2019 Winter ANME, XBIZ Award Shows

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Doc Johnson reports a successful exhibition at the 2019 January ANME Show, held at the Los Angeles Burbank Airport Marriott on Sunday, Jan. 13 and Monday Jan. 14.

In addition to debuting an exciting new suite of products at ANME, Doc Johnson also took home two XBIZ and XBIZ Exec Awards in the following categories:

  • XBIZ Exec Awards, Senior Leadership Award — Kerin De Francis
  • XBIZ Awards, Couples Sex Kit/Toy of the Year — Vac-U-Lock Total Penetration Set by Doc Johnson

Taking place on the heels of the ANME show’s conclusion, the XBIZ Exec Awards were held on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood, followed by the XBIZ Awards on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

“I’m honored and privileged to receive the award for Senior Leadership,” De Francis said. “It came at a particularly special time, as I am now celebrating 15 years with my Doc Johnson family this year. To say I feel blessed is an understatement. This industry has shown me what compassion, understanding, and community truly means. I am thankful for everyone at Doc Johnson and my customers—which I consider my extended family — and, of course, my husband. Without his support, I couldn’t do what I do. And a huge thank you to XBIZ! You guys are amazing!”

At the 2019 Winter ANME show, Doc Johnson debuted exciting new additions to several existing collections, including Kink by Doc Johnson, The D, and Doc Johnson’s Main Squeeze collection of hard-case strokers, which was given its own special exhibition space across from the main Doc Johnson booth.

Main Squeeze additions included several “social media star” branded strokers — an industry first. Doc Johnson debuted three Main Squeeze strokers molded from social media stars (@ana.lorde, @viking.barbie and @brittanya187) at the Main Squeeze booth, alongside the recently released Main Squeeze -  @playmateiryna. These new additions represent the industry’s first masturbators to be molded from social media stars, and are poised to expand Main Squeeze’s already considerable popularity by attracting an even wider mainstream demographic, the company said. Combined, the new models boast more than 30 million social media followers. The most “followed” of the bunch, social media sensation @brittanya187, also received her own All Star Porn Stars product, for customers wanting to experience the wildly popular Brittanya (who ranks amongst the Top 50 most followed accounts on Instagram) at a more entry-level price point.

Other new additions to Main Squeeze included new strokers molded from red-hot adult performers Katrina Jade, Lela Star and Ariana Marie, as well as a trio of Main Squeeze strokers molded from men (in a sub-brand called Man Squeeze), from popular performers William Seed and Ryan Bones from Men.com, and ‘Randy’, a Sean Cody exclusive performer.

Additionally, Foria continued its partnership with Doc Johnson at this year’s Winter ANME show, debuting several new Foria products at the Doc Johnson booth, including three new CBD Vape Pens, a trio of CBD Massage Oils (available individually in 4. fl. oz. bottles, as well as in a three-piece kit of three 2 fl. oz. bottles), and an Organic CBD Lubricant. Foria is a company focused on women’s sexual wellness by creating products that work with all-natural and organic ingredients, including broad-spectrum CBD from sun-grown USA hemp, and natural plant-based aphrodisiacs.

Foria founder/Co-CEO Mathew Gerson noted, “We're very pleased with the warm reception buyers gave our new suite of products, which can be used throughout the course of intimate encounters — everything from foreplay to afterglow, and beyond into daily wellness. Buyers were especially thrilled with our fast-acting, delicious vape pens — which help set the mood, take the edge off, and naturally support well-being (which is the real secret to a healthy sex life).”

Kiana Reeves, Foria’s director of education, added, “From our long experience with sexual wellness products — and the inspiring testimonials of our satisfied customers — we know that cannabis and hemp have so much to offer in the bedroom, both for enhanced pleasure and for diminished pain. Across the country, people are just beginning to wake up to the possibilities of CBD products, so we're delighted to be bringing ours to a wider audience through our partnership with Doc Johnson and all the interested retailers at this year's ANME show.”
