We especially enjoyed the strip show with a male and female performer, with the Aussie lad squirting water or something over the media and audience at the climax of the show.
Some of the audience members were dressed up very sexy, and some bodypainted lasses and fetish displays caught our eye.
Not everyone wanted to be photographed or videotaped, but enough did to make it well worth our while. Our media pass badges seemed to get either a very hot or cold reaction, but it was usually very hot to say the least.
My partner seemed to think the ladies were better catered for than the guys, and I think it was a female friendly event, perhaps toned down a bit from previous years, perhaps due to legal requirements.
A jam packed expo centre saw hundreds of the creme of the adult entertainment industry strut their stuff, at a time when what adults do behind closed doors is as relevant as ever.
Industry names who attended Sexpo include: Fiona Pattern (EROS Association CEO), Bombshells Australia (including Michelle "Bombshell" McGee), Alexis Texas (adult actress), Nina Mercedez (adult actress, web entrepreneur, producer and fitness model), Belladonna (adult entertainer and producer), Ron Jeremy (adult actor), Vaughn Liley (xxx), HunkMania Australia and Suzie Q (adult entertainer and pole dancer).
Russell Gilbert, comedian, hosted most of the live stage shows and he was genuinely funny, and the audience lapped it up.
In a new twist, motor cross stunt riders (Quick Fix Harley Davidson Freestyle Team with Seth Enslow) put on a fab display to close the show off.
Sexpo appeared to be a big success, and it was a lot more fun than many more of the other media events we have attended lately.
Many thanks to the Sexpo organisers for helping make our visit so enjoyable.
.XXX is Upcoming Sydney Sexpo Sponsor - Mar 12th, 2012 06:26 PM
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL—ICM Registry is making its final preparations for this year's Sexpo in Sydney, Australia, which takes place March 15-18 at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour. Following the huge success of last November’s show in Melbourne, which saw record crowds estimated to be in excess of 85,000 attendees at the .xxx-sponsored event, ICM decided to boost their profile even more for this event by sponsoring the attendance of legendary adult performers Ron Jeremy and Nina Mercedez at this years Sydney show to promote .xxx.
Both during and after the Melbourne Sexpo, ICM saw a huge surge in traffic from Australia indicating the exposure and interest generated by the .xxx sponsorship of the event had a very positive impact. Domain registrations also increased from the region immediately following the Melbourne Sexpo, and Australian Registrars are second only to US based Registrars in terms of the number of .xxx registrations.
“As part of building our brand awareness, we decided to sponsor the attendance of Ron and Nina for this years show. We have several media events already lined up including TV and Radio raising awareness of .xxx in the minds of consumers which can only be good news for .xxx domain owners,” said Vaughn Liley, ICM Sales Director. “As part of our traffic generation initiatives, we will also be promoting many of the new and operationally live .xxx sites to the estimated 65,000 attendees in Sydney."
In addition, ICM has teamed up with Crazy Domains, an Australian based registrar, to offer special .XXX domain pricing during Sexpo. More details can be found by visiting the .xxx booth # 173 at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Center between March 15-18.
