Good Vibrations Wins Boutique Retailer of the Year at the 2011 XBiz Awards

Congratulations to Good Vibrations for their win last night at the 2011 XBiz Awards!

The San Francisco based company and online retailer won “Boutique Retailer of the Year“, which is a fitting title considering their recent opening of their fifth store in downtown SF. I followed the tweets of Good Vibration’s Buyer Guru Coyote Days, who was at the awards ceremony. Good Vibe’s COO Jackie Strano and owner Joel Kaminsky were also in attendance for XBiz events.

Other highlights include the Pleasure Product Awards. Good Vibrations started out selling vibrators and to this day continue to carry some of the best selling vibes from the top sex toy designers. It’s great to see San Francisco’s very own Jimmyjane take home two awards;  “Luxury Toy/Line of the Year” for the Form 3 and the a recognition for the entire company as “Luxury Toy Manufacturer of the Year”. LELO, another well-loved luxury/premium sex toy maker, was honored with “Excellence in Product Packaging”. And a fun male sex toy from quality toy makers Fun Factor — the sporty Cobra Libre — was awarded “Innovative Product of the Year”. What a fun male sex toy. Also of note, a very popular cock ring called the Screaming O won “Crossover Novelty Company of the Year”, and the ever popular Fleshlight tied with Baci Lingerie for “Marketing Campaign of the Year”.

In addition to those great toys, it was fantastic for me to see some of my friends in adult movies be recognized, including Andy San Dimas for Female Performer of the Year, Joanna Angel for her Affiliate Program, Crossover Star of the Year Riley Steele and folks at Digital Playground for Studio of the Year. I’m glad that XBiz recognizes Gay adult (wish it were a bit more queer though!) but happy to see that Gay Studio of the Year went to Titan Media and that Lucas Entertainment (yay Mr. Pam!) took home Website Studio of the Year. Also, big ups to my man Keni Styles for taking home “Acting Performance of the Year” for “Malice in Lalaland“. Check out Good Vibe’s Award-Winning Adult Movies and know that just like their quality toys, every video is also hand-selected and screened before it hits the shelf. Try out the Pay-Per Minute option if you’re curious about exploring some titles. My favorites — well, besides my own 😉 —  include Women-Directed and Queer Porn!
