Megatron’s highlights throughout the last year include the debut of her TV series, “Sex with Sunny Megatron,” on Showtime, as well as numerous media profiles and in-depth coverage.
“I’m very pleased to be nominated for the inaugural SHE Awards,” Megatron said. “As a sex educator, my goal is to spark conversation about the importance of sex and sexual health to one’s well being, which is the same mission of the Sexual Health Expo.”
The SHE Awards, honoring individuals and products promoting a healthy sex life, will be held at the Sofitel Hotel, 8555 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles as a part of the first-ever Sex Health Expo, held Jan. 17-18.
“Sunny has been a beacon of light in the sex education and wellness field and this recognition reaffirms her amazing work and accomplishments. We congratulate her on her nomination,” said Paul Fishbein, co-owner of Plausible Films, the production studio behind “Sex with Sunny Megatron,” along with The Jay & Tony Show.
As host and executive producer of “Sex with Sunny Megatron,” Megatron spreads her message of sexual health and wellness across the country and around the world. A well-known blogger, author and public speaker, she guest lectures at universities and teaches sold-out sexuality workshops across the continent with her husband, Ken Melvoin-Berg.

“I love my show and the great response we’ve received for it. On ‘Sex with Sunny Megatron,’ and in my other work in general, I want to inspire people to be less judgmental about sexual expression, whether it’s their own or of others,” Megatron said. “Sexuality isn’t something to be scared of or ashamed of as long as it’s a healthy expression of ourselves. There’s a bit of a ‘freaky perv’ in us all.”
Throughout 2014, international media outlets profiled Sunny Megatron. Covering the episode of “Sex with Sunny Megatron” on Clown Sex, Cosmopolitan referred to her as “prolific,” with an “ebullient, straight-talking” methodology towards sex education.

LONDON — Brits, apparently under a “Fifty Shades of Grey” spell, have splurged an unprecedented £50 million on sex toys, erotic novels and pleasure products this Christmas, according to new consumer research.
Leading U.K.-based online sex toy retailer Lovehoney has revealed that in its 12-year history, it sold more than 20,000 items in a day, which was more sex toys sold in a given day in the U.K. — ever, the Daily Star reported.
Lovehoney, which boasts the official license for all ‘Fifty Shades’ pleasure products — the only ranges approved by the book’s author E L James — has spent upwards of $1 million on TV advertising for Christmas and Valentine’s Day to grab a big slice of the booming soft kink market.
The company’s co-owner Richard Longhurst said that their turn-over doubled in the space of a year, with the women buying a whole lot of erotic fiction ala “Fifty Shades.”
While 80 percent of the books were reportedly read by women, the audience for the mainstream film debuting in February is expected to be split evenly amongst the sexes.
Longhursts believes that movie-goers will be inspired to experiment with sex toys after watching. “Fifty Shades” branded, the better.
