November 9, 2011, EDISON, NJ – EXXXOTICA New Jersey, presented by Hotmovies.com, staked its claim as the most popular love and sex fan expo in the nation with a record-setting weekend in Edison, NJ. Victory Tradeshow Management reports over 28,000 attendees attended the expo, which ran at the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center, November 4th-6th. All three days drew a steady stream of curious women, men and couples, who indulged in EXXXOTICA’s diverse lineup of stage shows, seminars, exhibitors and celebrities.

“Year after year, people from the Tri-State metropolitan area and the East Coast welcome our expo,” stated J. Handy, Director of Victory Tradeshow Management. “We took the show to the next level this year with an incredible lineup of stars, events, exhibitors, shows, seminars and more. The positive consumer response was unprecedented. EXXXOTICA is more than the nation’s most popular love and sex expo — it’s one of the most popular expos of any nature. With a commitment to quality and high production values, we expect increasing success every year.”
EXXXOTICA New Jersey is the thirteenth show produced by the love and sex expo. EXXXOTICA’s first three expos in 2011 drew over 65,000 people, while the New Jersey expo topped off a record setting year for the traveling adult expo’s record-setting year. Nearly 100,000 people attended EXXXOTICA in 2011.
EXXXOTICA New Jersey made national headlines in 2008. The show was set to debut in the Northern New Jersey city of Secaucus, but four days before its opening, city officials, led by the city’s former mayor Dennis Elwell (who was recently found guilty of bribery in an unrelated case), and management from the venue, abruptly canceled the event, forcing a last minute location change down the New Jersey Turnpike. For the past four years, EXXXOTICA New Jersey has instead made Edison, N.J. its home with four successful shows in the books.
The lawsuit with the town of Secaucus over the cancellation was recently settled (while additional cases against the convention center there, among others, remains in litigation) once again drawing EXXXOTICA New Jersey into the headlines.
The 2011 expo in Edison began with Friday’s Ladies Free Night. Lines of women listened to seminars on relationships, cheered for MEN, an all male revue and host of other shows on the AEBN Entertainment Stage, and shopped at erotic themed vendors. Visual treats included aerial acrobatics from adult superstars Belladonna and Stoya, as well as burlesque shows from Pretty Things Peep Show, Rubberdoll, Rigor Mortis Revue, and more.
Additional highlights of the show included the appearance of Chyna, mainstream wrestling champion and star of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” and the first East Coast public appearance by Seymore Butts in close to a decade. Butts, the legendary adult performer and star of the popular Showtime reality series “Family Business,” promoted his new and critically acclaimed book, “Rock Her World: The Sex Guide for the Modern Man,” with a seminar. Over 150 more celebrities drew fans by the thousands to EXXXOTICA.
EXXXOTICA’s Facebook page is packed with comments left by ecstatic consumers. Carol Johnson wrote, “Had a great time! Can’t wait until next year! Thanks for a great event!” “I had so much fun!” added Sarah Betros. “I had a blast with my two friends [and] can’t wait for next year!” Bill Marsh observed, “I can’t believe it. We just left at 8:30 and not only is the parking lot packed, but people are still [coming] in! Great job….See you all next year!”
Exhibitors reaped the rewards of the increased attendance. Dan Loevy, content manager for expo sponsor HotMovies.com and Clips.com, said, “Each year, EXXXOTICA New Jersey raises the bar and exceeds our expectations, and this year was no exceptions! The EXXXOTICA crew went above and beyond in their quest to help us get our brand out to fans, so much so, the HotMovies and EXXXOTICA names practically go hand in hand. We couldn’t ask for a better bunch of guys and gals to work with or a better show to sponsor.”
Loevy continued, “The crowds were huge! Everything ran like clockwork, giving us the freedom to focus our energies on showing the fans a great time and allowing us the ability to solidify existing relationships with other players in the industry, as well as create new relationships within the community.”
Dan Davis, editor-in-chief of the expo-sponsoring CLUB magazine, said, “Thank you to all of the stars and the fans who made CLUB Spotlight the must-see destination on the show floor. Over 25 stars and thousands of fans were at the booth, and it was definitely our strongest and sexiest lineup ever, making 2011’s EXXXOTICA New Jersey the best show we’ve ever been involved in. Thank you once again.”
The sexiest cars in the world gathered at EXXXOTICA New Jersey as part of The Exotic Car and Bike Show. Prizes were awarded for a wide variety of classes and categories. Elite Streetz Stuntin & Stylin DVD Magazine, Carlisle Performance & Sound, and promotional businesses sponsored the show. More information is available at The Exotic Car Show.com. Also on the expo’s floor were movie cars, including one of the DeLorean’s from Back to the Future (complete with a Marty McFly lookalike) and the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo.
The fun didn’t end at the convention center though, as the nights of EXXXOTICA heated up on both sides of the Hudson River. Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club in NYC featured two nights of star-studded line-ups on their stage, with both hosted by Chyna. Friday featured Mary Carey, Kagney Linn Karter and Melanie Rios, and Saturday had Allie Haze, Kirsten Price, Breanne Benson and Courtney Cummz doing their thing.
New Jersey’s Bourbon Street featured the “Deviant” duo of Alexis Texas and Teagan Presley, and the expo’s official hotel, the Sheraton Edison hosted a trio of events all weekend. Friday night was the “Back to Jerzey” Official VIP After Party, hosted by Gianna Michaels and Ron Jeremy, with DJ Licious spinning the tunes once again. Gianna cruised up to the hotel in one of the DeLoreans from the Back to the Future movies with a Marty McFly lookalike, which was captured by a sea of media.
Saturday night, an “Alan” lookalike greeted fans and VIPs who attended The Hangover XXX After Party hosted by Digital Playground contract star Riley Steele, and the legendary Lisa Ann. Select party-goers were handed cameras to catch the evening’s events (in case steps needed to be retraced), and the popular NJ band, The Replicants cranked out the tunes for the sold out crowd containing a who’s who of the adult industry.
Sunday night, Joe Trivia presented “Are You Smarter Than a Porn Star?” trivia where hostesses Tasha Reign and Kagney Linn Karter of LA Direct Models showed off their knowledge. Then a plethora of stars took part in Porn Star Karaoke for the show’s official wrap party concluding the over 36 hours of non-stop entertainment and parties composing EXXXOTICA New Jersey.
