LOS ANGELES—Fleshlight’s very first BBW offering, modeled after voluptuous porn and fetish performer Kelly Shibari, has been nominated for multiple awards at this year’s "O" Awards, presented by AVN.
The fourth annual "O" Awards, held Tuesday, Sept. 11 at the Moon Nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, honors outstanding achievements in the pleasure products industry, including design, innovation, marketing, distribution and retailing. The Awards are the highlight of the AVN Novelty Expo, held Sept. 10-12 at the Rio Hotel and Casino.
The Kelly Shibari Fleshlight has been nominated in the categories of Outstanding Innovation, Outstanding Non-Powered Product, and Outstanding Marketing Campaign.
“I’m thrilled to have my Fleshlight nominated in so many categories,” said Shibari. “Fleshlight has been so gracious in allowing the opportunity to carry a BBW product, and the response from the community shows that BBW pleasure products are definitely appreciated as an offering in the adult marketplace. I’d like to thank AVN and Fleshlight for making this possible!”
Shibari, who started in the adult industry as a BBW performer, has been featured in the Taschen book Le Petit Mort, graced the centerfold of AVN Magazine, runs the social media marketing company ThePRSMGroup and has been nominated for several industry awards and directs/produces the Feminist Porn Award-winning BBW fetish site PaddedKINK. She is considered one of the premiere plus-size adult performers today.
Kelly Shibari was featured in Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein’s "Mein Land" music video and gained even more international attention when she announced her fan-only blowbang/bukkake event when the Japanese won the Women’s World Cup last year. The resulting DVD, Kelly Shibari is Overloaded, was recently picked up for retail distribution by Monarchy Distribution and Exile Distribution. A tie-in Fleshlight promotion has been launched in conjunction with the DVD release, as well as ongoing social media marketing campaigns and the development of mobile apps for Kelly Shibari Fleshlight owners.
“I’ve heard amazing reviews of my Fleshlight from my fans,” said Shibari. “Couples, in particular, say they enjoy using my likeness in virtual threesomes—and it’s an amazing feeling to know that I can bring pleasure to BBW fans everywhere, any time they want. How cool is that?"
The Kelly Shibari Fleshlight, molded directly from her vulva, features the Lotus texture, designed to provide the most realistic vaginal intercourse sensation possible. It begins with a smooth, ultra tight entry and then opens to a slightly wider, more comfortable canal. The Kelly Shibari Fleshlight comes with the pearlesque white case synonymous to the Fleshlight Girls line, and retails for $79.95.
