Pipedream, Jimmyjane, and Sir Richard’s Condom Company Recognized with Three XBIZ Awards
Diamond Products’ success continued on Friday evening when Pipedream, Jimmyjane, and Sir Richard’s Condom Company scored top honors at the 2016 XBIZ Awards. Billed as “the industry’s biggest night” of the year, each of Diamond’s brands was recognized with the following awards:
“We’re proud and honored to be recognized by the 2016 XBIZ Awards. I want to thank XBIZ , our customers, and the growing Dream Team for these important awards,” explained Diamond Products Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “We’ve worked very hard the last couple years to expand our range and continue to offer the best products at a fair price. To receive this triple honor keeps us motivated to remain the #1 pleasure products and sexual wellness company in the world!”
“It is always an honor to be recognized by our peers and the industry. This year was especially rewarding, as our entire team has put a lot of effort into launching new Jimmyjane items and incorporating Sir Richard’s into our family of brands. These awards are for the entire team, and for our retail and distribution partners who have supported us this past year,” stated Robert Rheaume, President of Jimmyjane.
Senior Sales Exec Recognized as “Business Development Executive of the Year”
Just days after the bustling success of this week’s ANME show, Pipedream’s celebrations continued at last night’s XBIZ Awards where Dream Team veteran Briana Honz was honored with the “Business Development Executive of the Year” award.
“What a wonderful surprise! I’m so proud and humbled to receive such high recognition by one of our top industry resources,” exclaimed Honz. “I want to thank XBIZ for the gracious honor, as well as Nick Orlandino and all of my amazing Pipedream colleagues—I couldn’t do what I do without their continuous love, encouragement, and support. Thank you!”
The Senior Sales Executive—who won against nine fellow industry representatives—came to Pipedream nearly five years ago with four years of merchandising and buying experience at Hustler, plus eight years prior in the mainstream fashion business where she served as Director of Merchandising and Buying.
“I am very proud of Briana for all of her hard work and dedication,” said Pipedream Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “Our Dream Team consists only of best of the best, and this prestigious recognition of our staff proves one of the many reasons why Pipedream continues to be the #1 adult manufacturer in the world.”

We’ve returned from the AdultEx expo with two more accolades, scoring the Best Fetish/Alternative Product Range for the Bonnie Rotten Collection, as well as the coveted Manufacturer of the Year award.
AdultEx, which is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest gathering of adult industry manufacturers and retailers, has been vital to our rapid Australian growth. Our massive booth was booming with customers consistently throughout the three-day event, and we left the eleventh annual trade show with more orders than ever.
“The most important part of business is to keep products flying off of shelves. Proven sales are just as important as innovation, and that’s why brand loyalty to Pipedream in Australia is so strong,” said Visual Merchandiser Briana Honz. “Pipedream sales are skyrocketing in Australia and the Cal Vista team is a big part of our success!”
“I want to thank Roger Sheldon-Collins and his entire crew for putting together another incredible show and recognizing us as Manufacturer of the Year,” said Pipedream Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “I’m very proud of how we continue to expand our brand presence throughout Australia and New Zealand – Pipedream is and will continue to be the number one brand down under!”
In a perfect bookend to a whirlwind week of industry events, we were honored at last night’s XBIZ Awards with two accolades just 24 hours after receiving the Free Speech Coalition Award for Pleasure Products Company of the Year! Unlike anything in the fetish market, our unique Fetish Fantasy Series Lube Wrestling Ring was recognized as Fetish Pleasure Product of the Year. We’re especially stoked to have also scored the prestigious Progressive Pleasure Products Company of the Year Award.
“I would like to thank XBIZ for their continued support and recognition, as well as my phenomenal Dream Team for all of their hard work,” said Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “I am proud of what Pipedream has accomplished in the last year, and winning Progressive Pleasure Products Company of the Year only inspires us to work even harder. Pipedream will continue to set the industry standard and lead the way in product innovation.”
