2009 Adult Entertainment Expo and AVN

We’ve just returned from another Adult Entertainment Expo and AVN show in Las Vegas, and posted a gallery from the expo. The show was much smaller this year, and it was obvious that the economy is affecting the adult entertainment industry. Many familiar studios didn’t even make an appearance, such as Naughty America, Lexington Steele’s Mercenary Pictures, Club Jenna, and Tera Patrick’s company, TeraVision to name a few. Not only were there fewer studios and vendors, the hall seemed to be filled with considerably fewer fans as well.

For the past couple of years, I photographed the AVN awards and the red carpet, but decided not to do so this year. Frankly, the red carpet is not fun to photograph because of the aggressive and rude paparazzi, pushing their way to the front of the line. This year the gallery is a little smaller, but we hope you enjoy checking out all of the stars at the 2009 AEE!

Thanks again to HotMovies.com for sponsoring our trip to cover the 2009 AEE and AVN!

25th Anniversary AVN Awards 2008 and Adult Entertainment Expo

Posted in AEE, AVN awards, Adult Entertainment Expo, PornStars on January 17th, 2008 by ErosArtist

Photos from the 2008 Adult Entertainment Expo and the 2008 AVN Awards are now live! We interviewed many of the porn stars who were signing during the expo, and many of them were winners this year! The interview videos will be live in a couple of days. In the meanwhile, there are three galleries including the Expo, the Red Carpet of the award show, and the 25th annual AVN Award show.

Lady Venus photographed the Adult Entertainment Expo and I was able to photograph the Awards this year. I felt a bit like a sleazy paparazzo on the red carpet, because there were way too many photographers crammed into a very small space, each shoving their way in for a shot. It took over two hours for all of the pornstars to make their way into the venue, and there are lots of pictures of your favorite pornstars dressed for the gala event. The best (or possibly the most expensive) gown of the night belonged to Jenna Haze, who told us during her interview that she spent $9,000 on it! We were happy to see that she made her way up to the stage a few times so that she definitely got her money’s worth on that gorgeous lavender, crystal-studded gown.

A few things that we noticed this year are:

- Belladonna seems to look better each time we see her.

- Many of the starlets love to have their fans jerk off onto their boxcovers and send them photos of the, um, messy end result.

- Ava Devine and Puma Swede are always in a good mood. (Take note, you newbies!!!)

- We still don’t understand why nipples are verboten at this event. THEY ARE JUST NIPPLES, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Covering them with pasties makes it all better? Whatever.

- A nice, full bush seems to be making a comeback. You don’t believe us? Have a look at the all-natural Aussie beauties of AbbyWinters.com.
