StorErotica Award Winners Announced at ANME Founders Show

BURBANK, Calif.—Look no further than the StorErotica Awards ceremony for an exemplar of efficiency and organization. Under the wing of hostess Kelly Shibari and Kristofer Kay, PR director at ED Publications, a grand total of 20 StorErotica Awards were bestowed tonight in a ceremony that clocked in at in under an hour. Joked Shibari, who was serving as the event hostess for the third year in a row, the goal was to get all the winners announced while free drinks were still being served. And indeed, guests had plenty of time left for cocktails after the last trophy was handed out. The ceremony took place at the ANME Founders Show, drawing a crowd of leading manufacturers, distributors and retailers to find out the winners and enjoy the full dinner and open bar. The show continues through July 19 at the Burbank Airport Marriott. But though the acceptance speeches were short, the sentiment among the winners was sweet. One highlight was the annual StorErotica Hall of Fame induction. Kay prefaced the announcement by relating a story that took place back when he was a newbie at StorErotica and working on a story. As Kay recalled, he met a man who was exceptionally gracious and helpful, and it wasn’t until later that he realized he’d been talking to the CEO of the company. That man, Kay revealed, was Doc Johnson founder Ron Braverman, who came up to accept a trophy—well timed to mark his company’s 40th anniversary mark.
