Included in the nominations they’ve been selected for are ‘Pleasure Product Company of the Year’, ‘Executive of the Year’ and ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’.
CalExotics, JOPEN Honored with 8 Nominations for StorErotica’s 13th Annual SE Awards
“It’s a pleasure to be nominated in eight different categories,” said Susan Colvin, founder and CEO of CalExotics and JOPEN. “That in itself is a major win! We’re extremely grateful to the customers who love and support our brand. Thank you for nominating us. It’s always been our goal to help enrich all lives with our products, and it means the world to me to know our work is making an impact.” said Colvin.
Nominees for the 2019 SE Awards were gathered in part by pre-nomination voting online. Once completed, StorErotica’s editorial staff compiled the votes along with independent polling that was conducted personally with retailers, distributors and manufacturers, to create this final SE Awards ballot.
New to the ballot this year is Sex Educator of the Year. This exciting category features several nominees including Dr. Jill McDevitt, a resident sexologist at CalExotics. Dr. Jill works with CalExotics by providing education on sexual health and wellness through online video tutorials, product reviews, how-to tips, and more.
“I dreamed of being a sex educator since I was a young teen,” said Dr. Jill, when asked what being nominated means to her. “Doing this work is the fulfillment of a life-long passion for me, and I’m grateful every day that I get to do my part to make the world a little more knowledgeable, introspective, and compassionate about sexuality. Being nominated for the Sex Educator of the Year award is a thrill and an honor,” said Dr. Jill
Along with being a nominee for Sex Educator of the Year, Dr. Jill has the honor of hosting this year’s SE awards. Winners are announced during the awards, held in conjunction with the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo (ANME) in Burbank, Calif., on July 16.
“StorErotica is excited to announce our final nominees for this year’s SE Awards,” said SE’s Marketing and PR Director Kristofer Kay. “Each brand and storefront represents outstanding achievement within the adult retail community, and we are once again honored to be the publication that recognizes them.” said Kay.
