CalExotics Founder Susan Colvin Inducted Into 2022 StorErotica Hall of Fame

ONTARIO, Calif. — CalExotics founder and CEO Susan Colvin has been inducted into the 2022 StorErotica Awards Hall of Fame.

An in-person ceremony, hosted by Dr. Sunny Rodgers, was held during ANME in Burbank, California on Tuesday night, following two years of paused live activities due to the COVID-19 lockdowns.

"What an honor it is to receive such a profound award. Thank you to StorErotica, my team at CalExotics, my colleagues and friends. Your support means so much to me,” Colvin said.

A rep noted Colvin "first made history" in 1994 as she became the first woman founder of an adult novelty company, with a vision to create a brand that brought more color to the market and was inclusive for people of all sexual preferences and orientations.

“I had no idea what we would be doing would change the trajectory of the adult business,” she noted.

"When I started CalExotics, my goal was to bring more women into adult stores and the business, but I never dreamed it would evolve into what we see today," she said. "As I look around, I feel very proud of the entire makeup of this industry. We have such a large percentage of powerful women in the business, and I am honored to have helped pave the way for this."

In addition, CalExotics earned the 2022 StorErotica Award as Pleasure Product Company of the Year.

"This award is a testament to how Susan’s impact on the industry is still going strong today,” said director of marketing Nichole Grossmann.

The company debuted over 100 new products during ANME earlier this week, including the LuvMor line of high-quality pleasure products and all-natural personal care items, and Obsession, a "decadent collection of premium, ultra-indulgent, turbo-charged massagers."

In addition, CalExotics expanded some of its top-selling collections, including Butterfly Kiss, Boundless, French Kiss and Viceroy.
