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.”

Pipedream Named in Redskins’ Controversial Trademark Case

washington-gummy-panties

Our proposed team name and logo for the new Washington Edible Crotchless Gummy Panties!!!

The Washington Redskins are trending once again after their latest court filing was published online with Pipedream brand names cited. The controversial NFL team lost their trademark last year when it was canceled by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and the decision was even upheld by a federal judge. The case is currently before a court of appeals and on Friday, the Skins filed an opening brief in its third attempt to salvage their racist trademark by citing other potentially “offensive” brand names:

dan-peach-panties

Hey Dan, you can quit the passive aggressive tweets — we can totes send you a lifetime supply of peach Gummy Panties, all you had to do was ask!!!!!

“Pipedream is the leader of the adult novelty market because we’ve been pushing the envelope for 40 years, so we were very excited to see several Pipedream trademarks mentioned in this case,” said Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “Over time our products, brands, and trademarks have become part of today’s pop culture and consumer landscape, and being cited in such a high-publicity lawsuit is yet another example.”

With reporters from Fox SportsESPN, and Vice Sports fighting for up-to-the-minute coverage of the ‘comically vulgar’ court filing, Orlandino has been fielding a flurry of media inquiries including his most recent interviews with Washington Post sports columnist Dan Steinberg and Sports Illustrated author Brendan Maloy.

midget-man-fox-sports

Midget Man’s catching some of the spotlight too!

Maloy quoted Orlandino in his most recent Sports Illustrated article titled “We called the companies that the Redskins called offensive,” saying ”I think their level of play is offensive. Dan Snyder is a whack job. He is the Donald Trump of football.”

The Skins appeal has been petitioned by five Native American activists, led by Navajo Nation member and social worker Amanda Blackhorse, who has until January 14, 2016 to file their response. Customers are urged to contact their sales representatives now to ensure full stock of Pipedream’s best-selling trademarks as they continue to make waves in this case.

Like, it really brings out your eyes… That’s right! We snagged this quarter’s cover of the Australian adult retail trade mag, plus tons of Pipedream coverage including news, reviews, art, and top-sellers.

Our umbrella company, Diamond Products, also caught a few glimmers of the Australian spotlight with an awesome Jimmyjane Form 5 review and an editorial introducing our latest acquisition of Sir Richard’s Condoms

Billed as “Pleasure Time Three,” Form 5 works for men, women, and couples. For women, the theory is that the fluttering wings caress the labia whilst the dome targets the clitoris, rather like combining a pebble vibrator with a bullet. You can also use the wings for on-point clitoral massage of a different sensation, or on nipples and other sensitive areas – for example, the temples and sinuses (no, not a sex thing, I just found it helped ease the pain.) —Mia More, journalist and reviewer, cliterati.co.uk

STIMULATE ALL OF THE THINGS!!!!!!

Sir Richard’s Founder, Mathew Gerson, who in 2005 started online retailer Econscious Market, which sells eco-friendly products and donates up to 10% of the retail price of each sale to charity, was reading a book about Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health. He learned that condoms, which are cheap to produce and the most effective way to avoid HIV and other infections, were no readily available to those disadvantaged regions. So in 2009, Mathew founded Sir Richard’s Condoms. Its mission is to address a massive global shortage of condoms. To do this, the company has the unique philosophy of donating one condom to a developing nation for every one that they sell. To date, Sir Richard’s has donated over 2.2 million of them. With sexual wellness and reproductive health in mind, they chose to make Sir Richard’s Condoms of all-natural latex and silicone lubricant. They also left out a range of seriously unsexy chemicals (parabens, spermicide, or glycerin), common ingredients in some other brands’ products. —page 29, Synergy

Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, Last Man On Earth Take Exclusive Pipedream Tour!

Besides sex toys, entertainment is probs the next big love of mine. I love music, I love movies, I love TV. As an only child, I spent all of my after school evenings and summertime afternoons with Ren and Stimpy, Bart and Lisa, Zim and Gir. And now, even as a “grown-up” with a nine to five, I still love cartoons, but now I’m just chilling with the likes of Finn and Jake, Beavis and Butt-head, and Tina, Gene, and Louise. So when the voice of Louise — Kristen Schall — name dropped Pipedream on Conan a few weeks ago, I basically lost my shit. Long story short, I tweeted her, connected with a rep for Last Man On Earth, and setup a Pipedream tour!

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 9.47.13 AM

You’d think the glitz and glam of Hollywood would keep our movie-making neighbors way too busy and entertained to make their way over to our side of Lassen Street, but it turns out that touring a dildo factory is an offer that no one can refuse. In fact, the LMOE rep had to contact us multiple times to increase the size of the tour because as word got around the LMOE office, everyone wanted in on the typically NSFW fun! So on Monday, October 26th around noon, Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, and about 20 writers and crew members walked the few Chatsworth blocks from their studio to Pipedream headquarters for an exclusive tour.

Serving as Master of Ceremonies was our VP of Development Rob Phaneuf (aka Midget Man!), who always gives the best, most in-depth and hilarious Pipedream tours whenever we host special guests. This dude has been with the company for ten years now, so he knows everything and anything you’d want to know about the history of Pipedream, the intricate details of development and business… and all of the sexual innuendos, of course. Our offices alone offered plenty of laughs, from walls lined with poster-sized porn stars and King Cocks to the 20-pound ass that ever-so-casually calls my desk its home.

Next stop was a swift walk through our ridickulously massive shipping department before catching a blast of the sweet aroma that is our lube manufacturing facility. This room seriously smells like a candy store and one of the crew members  commented, “It’s like the Willy Wonka factory of sex toys!” We took a peek at our multimedia studio, impressing even Hollywood’s best with our sweet production setup. But then finally came the moment everyone was waiting for… THE DILDO FACTORY!!!!

uK2P0qFo6r09wjkv_Qrr0cy-mKz3i1_eDyIvLoAoDH0,5OMddrMzMNEL3Vocgl5JJW9T5YKCrlu-SJHcbO2bM60,MJFDh5s7J37UjMcyDuscX4GDtLPKr3961esw7ErOyj0,WRPqnYPn2ku77BtR4ZIxy32BMqZ1uAEcCDXF5zxZkIY

We probably spent most of our time over at the toy manufacturing facility. Everyone was so enamored by every little detail – the molds, the pouring, the “baking”, the cooling, the quality control, the finishing touches by hand. I was especially surprised by Will Forte’s reaction – he was super intrigued by everything and there were plenty of times when he’d linger far behind the tour, watching and filming every process of manufacturing. My favorite part was watching him film our cooling mechanism – there was a cluster of brown King Cocks getting ready to plop from the conveyor belt, but they were moving sooooooooo slooooooowwwwwwww, and Will stood there filming the whooooooooole thiiiiiiiiiiiiiing! I laughed with a crew member about it and he was just like, “Well, that’s Will for ya. When he commits, he commits.”

So there you have it! Pipedream has the coolest neighbors and it turns out that no matter your industry – mainstream or adult – there’s one thing we can all agree on: sex toys are awesome, whether it’s for an orgasm or a laugh.
