This is no way to describe the Adult Entertainment Expo. The AEExpo, which began yesterday and runs through Saturday, Jan. 24 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, is sensory overload.
The four corners of the hotel spanned everything from the Rabbit vibrator to porn stars ready to pose with fans from literally every walk of life. That is no cliche, just straight-up hard facts. TheBlot Magazine spied shy, quiet geeks, loudmouthed douche bags, couples, middle-aged men and even a few attendees driving motorized scooters.
The AEExpo is not for the faint of heart or even the pure of heart. Unless you’re a member of XXXChurch, which will tell you outright that #JesusLovesPornStars, complete with its fantastic mustachioed mascot who fittingly looks like he’s straight out of a ’70s porn.
It’s all part of what makes the expo so fun to attend because there’s no judgement. At all. Like to get spanked? Head to The Lair, “an interactive kinky playspace” presented by Kink.com. Like girls who have more to love? You’ll see them here. Need a new butt plug? We found a company that sells handmade stainless steel ones. There’s even a whole health and wellness side of the industry that we’ll get to in a later story.
No matter what floats your boat, you’ll not only find it at the AEExpo, you’ll find ways to fine tune it and maybe even meet your favorite porn star. What’s not to love? Don’t believe us? Check out Tom Roarty’s photos and see just what you’re missing. And remember, if Jesus loves porn stars, he’s surely going to love you.
