Melbourne’s Eagle Leather adult store came away a big winner from the first inaugural Eros Shine Awards last week.

The awards, created to recognise excellence and achievement among businesses which provide services or products of an adult nature, were held at the Palace Theatre in front of a big audience of adult industry professionals on Wednesday.

Eagle Leather took out four awards including Best Australian Independent Adult Store. The award was based on 50 percent public vote and 50 percent of the Eros Shine Awards Committee.

They also scooped up the Best Australian Sexual Education Program award and the Best Australian Sex Educator and Best BDSM Master gongs for resident educator Sado BJ.

Eagle Leather has been running adult education programs for many years, originally under Brian Mier’s ownership, and this program has continued with the new owners of the business.

Topics taught at their workshops and seminars in the past year included electric sex, medical play, impact play and bondage workshops by the influentual Japanese expert Osada Steve.
