California Exotic Novelties 
   Wows January ANME

Nick Hawk Celebrity Meet and Greet, New Products, and Visual Merchandising Plans Create Buzz at Show
California Exotic Novelties, the world’s largest and most respected pleasure product manufacturer, wows the attendees of the January ANME Show 2013, which took place at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport, January 7-9. Fans flocked to see Nick Hawk, star of Showtime’s hit show Gigolos, as he unveiled his collection. New products and the latest in Visual Merchandising technology also created huge show buzz.
Susan Colvin, President and CEO of California Exotic Novelties, says, “Our booth was buzzing in more ways than one during this year’s January ANME Show. Nick Hawk was fabulous as he posed for pictures, signed autographs, and toasted to his exciting new line. It’s a great way to start 2013 and we look forward to celebrating all year long with our valued customers.”
“I've worked in the entertainment industry for some time now but I especially felt welcomed by sex toy industry at the ANME Show,” says Hawk. “Not only has Susan and the CalExotics team been a pleasure to work with, I'm also really happy about the hands that my Nick Hawk Gigolo line is going into for distribution. I'm very excited to launch this line that I have put a lot of time and heart into!” 
The Nick Hawk Gigolo Collection free floor display made a bold impression at the show. It holds all 22 items in the line and includes an attached Nick Hawk replica standee. Additionally, to launch the line, CalExotics is hosting the Win a Dream Date with Nick Hawk contest and will invite consumers to register to win a Vegas get-a-way with the reality show hottie.
“We want to support our customers’ sales and to do that we need to drive consumer interest,” explains Jackie White, Vice President of Sales for California Exotic Novelties. “The Win a Dream Date with Nick Hawk contest will be supported on the P.O.P. display, the packaging, in flyers, and through internet marketing and social media publicity.”
All the contest details will soon be available at www.DateNickHawk.com.
Continuing with a focus on augmenting collections, CalExotics also introduced an array of new products under several of its most popular lines to ANME attendees.
“Additions to some of our most popular collections like Adonis, Body & Soul, Booty Call, First Time, Kisses, Posh, Tantric and others stole the show,” says Al Bloom, Director of Marketing for California Exotic Novelties. “Love Rider, Gyration Sensations, and Shane’s World also received rave reviews in the product categories. Thanks to everyone who came by to see what CalExotics has in store for 2013!”
The company also spotlighted its Visual Merchandising Plans. Developed with state-of-the-art merchandising technology, the design experts at California Exotic Novelties created easy-to-use plans for retailers. Customizable to suit individual store’s specifications, they offer flexibility and the experienced input of CalExotics’ merchandising specialists.
“We take great care in creating solutions that work. Successful merchandising is more than simply filling a wall with as many products as you can, it involves artful manipulation, careful planning, and a keen sense of sales and marketing. That’s what you get with California Exotic Novelties,” says Colvin.

          AVN Nominations

John Stagliano’s ‘Voracious’ Paces Diverse,
           Director-Driven Studio With 18 Nods

It’s as regular as the coming of a new year: Every January, the AVN Awards presentation in Las Vegas recognizes the finest work in the adult entertainment industry, and every year artistic/edgy Evil Angel leads all XXX studios in AVN Awards nominations.
In 2013 Evil Angel and its directors again lead the pack, earning a whopping 151 AVN Awards nominations. Prominent among those nods are the 18 garnered by “Voracious,” the ambitious vampire epic created by pioneering director and Evil Angel founder John Stagliano. Describing “Voracious,” the director known as “Buttman” says, “For sure there is lots of ass play, but this is not at all like a Buttman movie in terms of style.” He refers to his award-winning, hard-core fetish-fashion trilogy when he adds, “I wanted to do another feature film like ‘Fashionistas.’”
“Voracious” gathered nominations for Best Drama, Best Director — Feature (Stagliano), Best Actress (Brooklyn Lee), Best Supporting Actress (Lea Lexis), Best Supporting Actor (Steve Holmes), Best Screenplay (by Stagliano, Lee and Lexis), Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Special Effects, Best Editing, Best Music Soundtrack, Best Packaging, Best DVD Extras, Best Overall Marketing Campaign — Individual Project and Best Web Premiere as well as Best Three-Way Sex Scene (Lexis, Lee and Manuel Ferrara) and Most Outrageous Sex Scene (Lee and Rocco Siffredi in “Clothespin Head”).
Evil Angel directors Mike Adriano, Joey Silvera and Bobbi Starr were each nominated for Director Of The Year (Body Of Work). Best Director — Non-Feature nominations went to Jonni Darkko (for “Angels Of Debauchery 9”), Belladonna (“Kristina Rose: Unfiltered”), Adriano (“The Spit And The Speculum”) and Ferrara (“Slutty & Sluttier 16”). Best Director — Foreign Non-Feature nominations went to Siffredi (“Aliz Loves Rocco”), Nacho Vidal (“Fucking Tour”), Christoph Clark (“Jessie Volt Is My Sex Toy”) and Timo Hardy (“Party Hardy”). Noted Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann, “As a director-driven company, it’s gratifying that we got so many director-oriented nominations.” AVN recognized the work of 20 different Evil Angel directors with nominations.
Evil Angel grabbed AVN awards mentions in a diverse range of categories, everything from Best Overall Marketing Campaign — Company Image to Best Membership Site (EvilAngel.com) and Best Studio Website (EvilAngelVideo.com), even Best Educational Release (Belladonna’s “How To: Fuck!”)
Several Evil Angel directors were nominated for their on-camera sexual performances. Starr is a candidate for Female Performer Of The Year; Adriano, Vidal and Ferrara are competing to be named Male Performer Of The Year. Already a four-time Male Performer Of The Year winner, Ferrara will be inducted into the AVN Hall Of Fame at this year’s ceremony. Male Foreign Performer Of The Year nominees include Siffredi, Hardy, David Perry and Omar Galanti. Belladonna and Kevin Moore also received nominations for individual performances.
It’s hard to think of a sexual variety not covered in Evil Angel’s list of nominated releases. The studio picked up nominations in categories such as Best All-Girl Release and Series; Best Anal Release and Series; Best Big Bust Release and Series; Best Fem-Dom Strap-On Release; Best Foot/Leg Fetish Release; Best Gonzo Release; Best Interracial Release; Best MILF/Cougar Release; Best Oral Release and Series; Best POV Release and Series; Best Transsexual Release and Series; Best Young Girl Release and Series ... the list goes on.
Starr’s “Occupy My Ass” and Adriano’s “The Spit And The Speculum” both got nominations for Clever Title Of The Year.
The 2013 AVN Awards will be presented on Saturday Jan. 19, 2013. Adult business luminaries will walk the red carpet from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; the awards ceremony begins at 9:00 p.m.

Florist Mistake  
On opening his new store, a man received a bouquet of flowers. He became dismayed on reading the enclosed card, that it expressed "Deepest Sympathy". 
While puzzling over the message, his telephone rang. It was the florist, apologizing for having sent the wrong card. 
"Oh, it's alright." said the storekeeper. "I'm a businessman and I understand how these things can happen." 
"But," added the florist, "I accidentally sent your card to a funeral party." 
"Well, what did it say?" ask the storekeeper. 
"'Congratulations on your new location'." was the reply.
