Unveiled with touches of irreverent humor and flourishes of fanfare and greeted with a spirit of joyful camaraderie, the winners of AVN‘s inaugural “O” Awards were announced Tuesday night.

Thirteen products and companies were recognized in the awards ceremony, designed to recognize the leading products, companies and more in the adult pleasure industry. In addition, Carol Queen, Ph.D., and her Center for Sex and Culture were honored with the Outstanding Achievement Award.

“Though the AVN Awards are a spectacle now watched by millions of viewers on Showtime, it wasn’t always that way,” AVN Publisher and Editor Tony Lovett told the crowd of more than 400. “In fact, tonight’s “O” Awards are reminiscent of the same low-key vibe that was part of the AVN Awards launch, so many years ago.”

Each award winner was presented with the “O” Award trophy, which features a black marble base and a polished metal three-dimensional “O” on top.

The following companies are the winners of the first-ever “O” Awards, presented by AVN Media Network and AVN Novelty Business magazine:

Outstanding Boutique: Fairvilla Megastore, Orlando

Outstanding Retail Chain: Peekay (Lovers/Condom Revolution/Touch of Romance)

Outstanding Online Retailer: GoodVibes.com

Outstanding Non-Powered Product: Pure Wand, njoy

Outstanding Powered Product: BO, LELO

Outstanding Lube, Lotion or Potion: Sliquid Organics, Sliquid LLC

Outstanding Innovation: SaSi, Je Joue

Outstanding Overall Product Design: Fun Factory

Outstanding Apparel or Accessory Line: Spartacus Leathers

Outstanding Packaging: Evolved Novelties

Outstanding Marketing: The Screaming O, in-store marketing kit

Outstanding Distributor—East: East Coast News

Outstanding Distributor—West: Entrenue

Carol Queen, who also serves as the sexologist for Good Vibrations in San Francisco, was honored with the Outstanding Achievement Award for her work as a writer, speaker, educator, activist and all-around champion for the sex toy industry, Lovett said.

“Many of us in this room would not be where we are if it weren’t for Carol Queen and her colleagues at Good Vibrations,” he said.

Nominees for The “O” Awards were culled from pre-nomination submissions and a panel of advisors who narrowed down the field. From there, an advisory panel of more than 100 industry professionals was chosen for balloting. Their votes were counted along with those from AVN novelty writers and reviewers.

The “O” Awards were held in conjunction with the AVN Novelty Expo, the premier B2B event for the adult pleasure product industry. ANE continues Wednesday at the Universal Sheraton and the Hilton Los Angeles hotels in Universal City, Calif.

drlovelubeWhether you’ve already tried it, or just heard about it, one thing’s for sure – consumers the world over are enjoying the velvety smooth long-lasting effect of Dr. Love’s silicone-based lubricant. And now the optimized formula is available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada exclusively from America’s trusted resource from it’s official distributor – Futuring USA, Inc.. Dr. Love is officially here, giving America another reason to scream with delight in AND out of the bedroom with its purer, safer silkening lubricant for men & women.

With a passion for formulating the world’s best sensual products, Dieter Laros has been hard at work in Germany for over twenty years bringing us high quality sensual aids. So, when Futuring USA, Inc. decided to introduce out a new line of personal lubricants to North America they searched the world over for the “right fit”. After all their research they chose to work with Dieter Laros’ unique and very sensual formulation found in the Dr. Love lubricant.

“It took three years of intense research and development to create these outstanding formulations with the best standards of safety, AND without the use of cyclic silicones. The balance of Dimethicone and Dimethiconol without the use of these cyclic silicones is a milestone in the history of lubricants & glides,” discussed David Dew, Owner/CEO of Futuring USA, Inc.. “We are VERY excited about the launch of Dr. Love personal lubricant line, in addition to the GetMaxxx Ultimate Lube. We’ve always focused on making the best products in the world available to our clients. And, the Dr. Love brand lubricant is a superlative offering.”

Don’t just take the CEO/Owner’s word for it, many others are catching the wave, and touting the lubricant’s excellence. In fact it was recently announced that the Dr. Love lubricant is a proud nominee for the prestigious AVN “O” Award for 2009′s Outstanding Lube, Lotion or Potion. Created by AVN Media Network & AVN Novelty Business magazine & AVN Novelty Expo (ANE), the “O” Awards honor outstanding achievements in the pleasure product industry.

“We looked at the many different lubricants on the market, and what were the best selling as reported by retailers, and we all felt that Dr. Love was a top contender for the first ever “O” Award,” explained Sherri Shaulis, one of AVN Media Network’s judges and reporters.

With the escalating sales and predominant notoriety of the Dr. Love lubricant we are sure to see many more stimulating new products being offered by Futuring USA, Inc.. Be sure to keep an eye on this fast growing company, and if you are “in the mood” stop by their booth at the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE) in Los Angeles July 13-15, and pick up some free samples so you can learn first hand what all the BUZZ is about!

Dr. Love and GetMaxxx premium lubricants are manufactured in Germany, and are available in the U.S. and Canada exclusively from their official distributor – Futuring USA, Inc., www.futuring-usa.com.

Countdown to Quality: The ‘O’ Awards Debut at ANE

News - by ThePornoReporter - July 13, 2009 - 19:24 UTC - Be first to Comment!

More popular than the Rabbit, more powerful than the Hitachi Magic Wand, more coveted than a platinum plug, The “O” Awards are set to raise the bar for industry accolades this Tuesday night at the AVN Novelty Expo. A veritable constellation of stars from the pleasure enhancement industry will come together July 14 for the biggest night of the year, when the most outstanding products, companies, and retailers will be recognized at the very first “O” Awards party.

The “O” Awards, which take place from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, July 14, in the Starview Room of the Universal Sheraton Hotel in Universal City, Calif., are presented by AVN Media Network in conjunction with AVN Novelty Business and the AVN Novelty Expo. The awards event will be hosted by AVN publisher and editor-in-chief, Tony Lovett, who describes the event as an “informal gathering to recognize the industry’s best.”

Even though this marks the inaugural year of The “O” Awards, they already hold considerable cachet. The sponsor, AVN Media Network, has been recognizing and honoring leaders in other aspects of the adult entertainment industry for more than 25 years. “AVN is rightly recognized as the industry leader when it comes to the prestige of our awards,” Lovett says, “and The ‘O” Awards are no exception.”

Throughout the pleasure product industry, nominees and professionals alike are expressing their anticipation for this heralded event. From mega-manufacturers to mom-and-pop operations, AVN left no stone unturned in their quest to nominate the best.

“The launch this year of The ‘O’ Awards signifies a real turning point in the erotic products segment of the adult industry,” said Greg DeLong of njoy, nominated for five awards. “The ‘O’ Awards will be a coming-out party of sorts, recognizing and celebrating a new level of safe, high-quality, thoughtful erotic products. We’ll be thrilled to be in attendance, sharing the spotlight with our associates (and of course our friends at AVN, who provide the stage on which we present our wares to the world).”

Keith Caggiano, vice president of The Screaming O, credits his company’s four nominations to persistent efforts to create a fun and non-threatening image which appeals to everyone, including the novice. “We jokingly call ourselves the gateway product,” Caggiano says. “We bring an undeniable element of fun and excitement to everything we do, from marketing products to the look and feel of the packaging, as well as the events we attend. Overall, we are just looking to make people happy.”

“We are thrilled to be have been nominated for The ‘O’ Awards,” says Deb Gibson of Arabesque Body Creations & Design Inc., which was tapped as tops in the Outstanding Apparel or Accessory Line category. “We have put an announcement on our website already.”

“It’s an honor to be nominated!” says Vera Worthington, owner and lead designer of For Your Nymphomation, a company that creates locking luggage and storage pieces for novelties. The company’s Adult Toy Chest is in the running for Outstanding Product (Non-Powered).

“The nominees for the first year of The ‘O’ Awards make up an impressive list,” says Darren Roberts, CEO of AVN Media Network. “But the winners will be the ones who are really going to set the bar for the design, production and distribution of products for the next 12 months.”

The “O” Awards are part of the adult novelty industry’s premier B2B event, the AVN Novelty Expo. The expo is scheduled for Monday, July 13, through Wednesday, July 15, at the Sheraton Universal and Hilton Los Angeles hotels in Universal City, Calif.
