Exxxotica 2012 – 05.18.12


This year’s installment of Miami’s premier adult entertainment industry trade show, Exxotica, was not one to dissapoint. Perhaps my opinion is shaped by the fact that last year’s event was attended during a saturday afternoon, but it seemed as though the crowds came out much stronger to the Friday night of this years’ show.

With hundred’s of the industry’s most famous faces and vendors showcasing everything from bondage kits to water retaining bath beads, to electrocuting toys, there really was something for everyone under the convention center’s roof last weekend. With entertainment ranging from a performance by Quest Love and friends to on stage grind shows, my favorite exhibit was actually one of the more understated booths: Love Style, a company that manufactures and distributes glass ‘toys’ for adults. What caught me wasn’t the flash of the booth, not the sales methods of the unobtrusive man behind the table, it was the copy.
In front of each and every phallic piece of beautifully hand-crafted glass was a description that was worthy of its own publication. So, step aside 50 shades of gray I’ve now got reading material that promises to “deliver you to heights only imaged by the likes of Aphrodite”
