Pipedream Returns from XBIZ Awards with 3 Prestigious Accolades!

Pipedream rocked the Century Plaza Hotel on Friday night, scoring three of the most prestigious XBIZ Awards, and celebrating the incredible accomplishments of Pipedream Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino.

The best-selling eco-friendly Ceramix No. 4 was named Sex Toy of the Year (Non-Powered), while the hilarious Masturbating Midget Man wind-up toy won Adult Game/Bachelorette Product of the Year. But the highlight of the evening came when Orlandino was personally honored with the Industry Pioneer Award (Pleasure Products) for his 30 years of leadership and service in the adult novelty industry.

“I would like to thank XBIZ, my colleagues, and my team for this distinguished honor,” said Orlandino. “I’ve been in this business for 30 years, and went from unloading trucks to operating one of the biggest adult novelty manufacturers in the world. It’s been a great ride, and I’m committed to continue making Pipedream the number one brand in the world.”

“Winning Sex Toy of the Year for Ceramix proves that we continue to create innovative products of the highest quality,” said VP of Creative Kristian Broms. “Pipedream continues to expand into new markets by using alternative materials and unique, one-of-a-kind designs.”

“Everyone knows that big things come in small packages, and Masturbating Midget Man is no exception,” said VP of Product Development Rob Phaneuf. “Hilarious gag gifts are what made Pipedream famous, and we continue to create time-tested classics that are guaranteed to make people laugh!”

Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino Receives XBIZ Industry Pioneer Award!

Just a day after receiving the Free Speech Coalition Man of the Year Award, Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino was honored with the XBIZ Industry Pioneer Award, which will be presented to him at the 2014 XBIZ Awards show on January 24 at Century Plaza.

Says XBIZ, “The Pioneer Award distinguishes Orlandino as an influential leader in the pleasure products industry through his commitment to providing quality products and market innovation, while maintaining the highest level of professional ethics, integrity, and corporate social responsibility.”

“With his excellent command in importing, manufacturing, product development, sales, and merchandising, Orlandino has lead Pipedream on a trajectory path that shows no signs of slowing down,” XBIZ President and Publisher Alec Helmy said. “It is with great pleasure that we celebrate Nick Orlandino’s remarkable career and his undying passion and dedication to his company and the industry as a whole, with this prestigious award.”

XBIZ Associate Publisher Sara Ramirez adds, “Nick Orlandino has undoubtedly made his mark on the pleasure products industry as a top authority of the pleasure products industry. His drive and commitment to being No. 1 has propelled Pipedream to incredible success and paved the way for so many others to follow suit.”

“I feel very honored to have received the XBIZ Industry Pioneer Award, and am humbled to be recognized for such a prestigious accolade,” said Orlandino. “After 30 years of hard work, this makes it all worthwhile.

Pipedream Takes Home 2 More XBIZ Awards!


What a week we had … ANME, XBIZ 360 Conference Series, and XBIZ Awards Show in a span 5 days! Luckily we don’t have to do anything til next week, in which we pack up and go to Asia!

The XBIZ 360 Conference was nothing short of educationally fantastic! First of all, it was held at the luxurious Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills, California–and nothing is better than walking into one of the LA’s most swanky hotel and seeing monster-size banners of Pipedream in the lobby. The conference was packed with leaders and innovators from all sectors of the adult novelty industry. As Pipedream’s team took the stage, all eyes and ears were focused as we talked about the future of merchandising.

Revolutionizing the way retailers merchandise their stores, the Pipedream Planogrammer software was a hot topic amongst panelists and audience members alike. Our Visual Merchandiser, Briana Honz, also talked about the magic of cross merchandising–the strategic concept that advocates the display of complementary brands, putting items next to other relevant items, and doing so will help the natural flow of the store and easily guide customers from one corner to the next.

At the end of the week, the Pipedream Sales and Public Relations staff all hopped on a party bus and zipped on over to the Century Plaza Hotel for the 2013 XBIZ Awards Show in which we were nominated 11 times!. The show went well into the night, and we were pleasantly surprised when they announced that we won for Progressive Pleasure Products Company of the Year AND that our Fetish Fantasy Lingerie won Lingerie Collection of the Year. Although we were exhausted from an epic week of hustle and bustle, coming home at 3am cradling two trophies felt pretty damn good!

We’re the Shit: Pipedream Products’ Recent Award Nods & Rave Reviews

Happy New Year! Here's a hot girl with stars on her boobs! Trisha Paytas loves our Lady Glamour from Fetish Fantasy Lingerie.

We here at Pipedream are kickin’ off 2013 the only way we know how… by being freakin’ awesome, duh! I was thrilled to return from the holiday break to find an astonishing number of awards nominations and stellar reviews.

After being nominated for 11 XBIZ Awards, XBIZ has stroked our boners – I mean egos – once more with their list of the 20 Hottest Sex Toys of 2012. At number 7, our Icicles No. 38 is hailed as “an elegant approach to whips… Practical and stylish, this glass flogger features artistic detail and genuine bull leather tresses.”

XBIZ is obviously down with the weird sex, as our Fantasy Glide Sex Machine ranks at number 3 of the 20 Hottest Sex Toys, complimenting its 2 XBIZ Awards nominations for Innovative Pleasure Product of the Year and Alternative Pleasure Product of the Year. “Sex meets pogo stick with [this] self-powered fuck machine… [that] allows beginners to experiment with expert-level sexual positions.”

All this fuck-talk is getting this bitch wet with anticipation to see my company dominate the XBIZ Awards next week on January 11th at the Century Plaza Hotel! Just 8 days later we’ll be headed to Vegas for the AVN Awards at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Last year our CEO Nick Orlandino was placed in the Hall of Fame, and this year we’ve received 4 nominations.

Even tastier than the kinds words from our leading industry sources was finding this fucktastic review of our XBIZ-nominated Icicles No. 38 from Luscious Lollypop on EdenFantasys.com. “It makes my clitoris throb just looking at it and smelling the leather,” she says. “The craftsmanship of this glass flogger is beautiful in a way that is irresistible…  [it’s] divinely exquisite in a way that only art can be described.” The cherry on top of this scrumptious review was learning how much she and her partner genuinely enjoyed their Icicle. “It gives a very nice sting… and leaves beautiful red marks… My partner and I just love doing things rough and with pleasure and pain. We are majorly into the kink and fetish world, especially when it comes to impact play… [and are] very pleased with this product.”

The Icicles No. 38 "makes my clitoris throb just looking at it!"

I continued to cyber stalk my own company and, considering my weird sex toy obsession lately, was stoked to find that a bunch of other people love my tentacle fucker too! Yes, I know I mentioned our Icicles No. 24 just last week, and I’m not sorry for bringing it up again, either! Seriously guys, this toy is just fucking amazing, and a ton of people agree. Click the ❤ for their entire review.

 “It’s not only unique in shape and design, but unique in sensations as well.”

 “This fantasy piece of artwork just jumps out at you from the box and literally begs to be used! … It would be easy to get carried away with this toy. Juices flow up and down the deep groove in the middle, making it highly exciting to watch as it is being thrust.”

 “The prettiest invertebrate around.”

So yeah, basically we’re the shit… and it turns out our customers are too! To celebrate the holidays we held our biggest contest to date, offering a $1000 Pipedream Shopping Spree in exchange for a steamy story or other creatively kinky submissions. Jasmine Watkins not only shared this heated holiday tale, but she also showed us her XXXmas tree covered in cocks and condoms! We made sure her lengthy list of Pipedream presents were sent just in time to fuck away 2012, swinging into the New Year with our Fantasy Dance Pole and a ton of other goodies.

Jasmine and just a few of her Pipedream presents!
