At the AEE Show: goodbye Venetian ballroom; hello Mandalay Bay Events Center

Las Vegas []- Using words such as “most respected” and “most recognized” when describing a trade show is acceptable when it comes to the Consumer Electronics Show, winding up its 40th anniversary here in Vegas today. Yet, the adult entertainment industry claims the same about itself, because it has grown to an annual $12.6 billion business and tomorrow, just like the Oscars and the Grammys, gold statuettes will be awarded in 116 sex categories to the industry’s top stars and producers!

Yes, X-rated entertainment has gone completely mainstream and this year, for the first time, fans themselves will be able to attend the 24th Annual AVN Awards show being hosted at Mandalay Bay by three-time AVN Award winner Jessica Drake of Wicked Pictures and comedian Jim Norton.

Says AVN President Paul Fishbein:

“This is the only show of its kind to recognize entertainment professionals in the adult industry. We are thrilled to open it up to the general public. Our fans are fiercely loyal and as demand grew for tickets every year we just had to find a larger center with more seats.”

So, it’s goodbye Venetian ballrooms and hello Mandalay Bay Events Center. “The move is an important one as it signals the evolution of the adult entertainment industry into mainstream,” Paul concluded. Believe it or not but the press corps covering the event numbers over 1,000 from as far away as Europe and including both the prestigious New York and Los Angeles Times. All a far cry from the original awards back in the early 80’s when just 20 people first gathered!!

I stood with eyes wide open last year on the AVN red carpet watching the crazed scenes with more than 2,500 actress-models from all over the world. AVN Execs told me then it was double the previous year’s turnout, so I can only guess it will be madness and mayhem again tomorrow. The fans were as outrageous as the skimpy, near-zero clothes on the sex starlets. Call it the barrage of the bold, the brazen, the buxom, the bountiful and the bodacious.

Some fans even mounted cameras atop broom poles so they could shoot high over the fans packed six-deep in front of them lined along the 1/4 mile-long walkway of siliconed, leggy ladies. The video vixens tottered on towering stiletto heels in see-through tops plunging down to their navels just about meeting the sky-hi, thigh-hi slit skirts or the band-aid styled 4″ mini-skirts with lacy lingerie and seamed stockings on full sensual show. To say you’ve never quite seen anything like it on earth ever before is still an understatement of description and since each year the platinum busty bosomed blondes always go one better its easy to imagine this year’s feast of flesh!

You get a slight idea how mainstream this has all become when you consider the fine line merged between rockers and porn-stars. Fighter Tito Ortiz is nearly-engaged to Jenna Jameson, the world’s largest X-rated actress; rocker Evan Seinfeld from heavy rock band Biohazard is married to adult actress Tera Patrick and added to tonight’s royal nightclub battle is Dave Navarro with his Arm Charm girls hosting an Adult Expo party at the Scores topless men’s cabaret nightclub.

Also, ‘Mindfreak’ magician Criss Angel will be joined by rock stars Gene Simmons and Navarro for specialappearances during the awards show. And Zany red-headed comedian Carrot Top, who appears nightly at the Luxor, has agreed to “close” the AVN Awards show as “special guest,” with specially-written comedy material.

LIGHT nightclub at Bellagio isn’t missing out on the Xcitement. Actress, screenwriter and director, busty blonde Stormy Daniels of Wicked Pictures, who was best new starlet in 2004, hosts a special party. Next door at JET, best new 2007 starlet nominee Gina Lynn has been added to the Strip Las Vegas Magazine’s one year anniversary party with infamous Ron Jeremy — now of ‘Fame Games’ notoriety too!!!
