PORN STARS SHINE AT EAST COAST EXPO!
By Don Benn
Porn stars galore and a midget at the door met throngs of adoring adult entertainment fans at last months’ EXXXOTICA New York (actually New Jersey) xxx-travaganza.
The sexy sister show of the oh-so-hot EXXXOTICA MIAMI (actually Miami Beach) turned up the heat in the PA-NJ-NY tri-state area as over ONE HUNDRED porn stars, feature dancers, internet models, and the kinda’ girls who play for pay co-mingled amongst and among thousands of predominately male attendees all energetically eager to rub shoulders (and other assorted and often more fun body parts) with some of adult filmdom’s favorite females.
Long-time PNN readers, especially those who’ve been with us for years would have xxx-perienced a sense of déjà vu at the star-studded line-up of past PNN Consumers Choice Awards Show winners including (but certainly NOT limited to)…Jesse Jane, Tera Patrick, Gina Lynn, Sunny Lane, and Jessica Drake.
In addition to the unusually well managed usual autograph and photo areas, the three-day event was jam-packed with informative, educational, and just plain enjoyable seminars and stage shows on a wide-range of topics including “Everything You Want To Know About Porn”, “Inside The Porn-Actors Studio”, “An Introduction To Swinging” as well as adult versions of popular television games shows like the “Porn Family Feud” (featuring past a present Vivid Productions superstars), “Are You Smarter Than A Porn Star (featuring Adam and Eve’s Kayden Kross), and live (because, let’s face it – “dead” would have sucked) performances by Heather Hunter and 2 Live Crew.
Undoubtedly, the center of attraction (also the largest and most trafficked area) was the LEGENDS OF EXXXOTICA pavilion featuring such history making performers as Teri Weigel, Lisa Ann, Kylie Ireland, Christy Canyon, Taylor Wane, Ginger Lynn, Alexandra Silk, Seka, and male performers including Sean Michaels, Mr. Marcus, and Luc Wylder. Obviously, no LEGENDS show could ever be complete without adult industry icon and NightMoves perennial favorite Ron Jeremy (signing at another booth).
While darn near every star in attendance was sexy and beautiful this humble reporter needs to give special “props” to Taryn Thomas, the shows’ hardest working performer (first to arrive/last to leave every day), Jesse Jane and jessica drake (for making every fan feel important), Amy Fisher (yes – THAT Amy Fisher) just for being there, and last but far, far, far from least to Joanna Angel for receiving an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Rutgers University (class of 02).
On a personal note: EXXXOTICA New York marked the first show I’ve attended since my retirement from adult industry journalism three years ago. While ever so slightly less than flawless, the three-day expo provided adult entertainment fans a rare east cost opportunity to get thisclose to so many of the most beautiful women in the world. Parking was plentiful (and free), and the wide-aisled non-smoking/alcohol-free exhibition hall never produced the sardine can-like /A” train at rush hour claustrophobic/too close for comfort experience of many west coast expos.
The show also reflected a wide-range of east coast adult entertainment tastes including: punked and pierced goth gals, big bootied babes, swingers, fetishy females, glam girls, and a potpourri of porntastic performers sure to make anyone say “WOW”!
Fan shows, be it LA Erotica, AdultCon, AEE, or the just-concluded EXXXOTICA serve an important purpose – they add a sense of personalization and humanity to an often impersonal and even more often dehumanizing industry. And, oh yeah – they’re a hell of a lot of fun as well.
