So wow. This Jersey show was the first Exxxotica that reminded me of an AVN Adult Entertainment Expo with the crowds and lines to see the stars. Where the other locations, even while busy, allow you to have the time to talk to the performer, conversations will end up building a line behind you.Riley Reid, who is notorious for spending quality time (5-10 minutes) with each attendee that sees her, matched her busy lines at AVNs and easily had the longest lines in the show running 15-20 deep. Abella Danger, Adriana Chechik, and Angela White also had eye-popping lines and waits. I was extremely lucky that Riley, Abella, and Angela each took the time to take a break from their respective lines for my camera that I tried not to keep them from their fans by taking only a couple of snaps.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet and interact with a lot of people in the adult industry over the years, and Charlotte Sartre is one of my absolute favorites. Charlotte is a classic case of ‘you can’t judge a book by its cover’, because while she IS all the things that you see when you look at her, she is SO much more than “just a pretty face”, or “that pretty, tattooed goth girl”. Not only is she a special, outstanding performer with unlimited potential and literally no limit to what she’s eager to do and experiment with on camera, off camera she’s one of (if not THE) most talented, intelligent, diverse people I’ve ever known. She’s genuine. And real. And honest. And kind. And funny as fuck!!! Charlotte lights up a room with both her smile and her personality. Plus, any girl that will have the ingredients for an omelet pour into her ass, push those ingredients out, have them cooked in front of her, then eat the ‘ass omelet’ is my kinda girl. I was first “introduced” to Charlotte Sartre by sheer circumstance, while …. ummmm … “conducting research” on another ‘new girl’ in the industry who also webcammed on kink.com’s cam site. Basically, I noticed this really pretty ‘young Joan Jett’-esque looking girl, read her profile, and entered her chat room. Two minutes and three responses later, I realized right away that this is a really sexy girl who “gets it”. I’ve been thrilled to watch her career blossom from its infancy stages to her current level of success over the past nearly two years now. What’s been even more thrilling for me personally: having the distinct honor of making her a Trophy Girl for IAFD’s Spank Bank Awards, and having the sheer pleasure of calling Charlotte Sartre “friend”.
By cataloging hundreds of thousands of both porn movie titles and pornstars , the internet adult film database is the premier resource for information about the American porn community on the web,Our dedicated staff here at IAFD is constantly striving to provide our users with the most complete information available on all your favorite pornstars. As such, we went straight to the stars themselves to find out a little more about them… things they like, things they dislike, their favorite things, their hobbies, etc. in a little segment we call ‘Just The Facts, Ma’am”.In this installment, we feature an Eastern European superstar who has proven to be a dynamic performer: the scintillating Amirah Adara
At first I thought I was going to do a traditional write-up of the latest Exxxotica Expo from Chicago last weekend with my comments on the layout, attendance, my notes and observations, and, of course, corresponding photos along with the links to the galleries on Flickr or Tumblr.That gets boring, and my favourite parts about writing about these shows are the random observations that come to mind when I think about the time that I had. So I will just start rambling:
Chicago is one of my two favourite Exxxotica locations (other is Denver) because of its proximity to the airport and the hotel is usually right next to the convention center. This doesn’t mean much to the average local attendee, but it means a whole lot to someone who is carrying a bunch of equipment who has to pace several miles across a convention floor. The show is always busy with attendees over the years which leads to happy girls rather than ones sulking over their sales.
Even though the Chicago show is busy, you can spend a lot of time talking with the girls as opposed to an AVN because the laid back pace of the show allows you to do it. Which leads to some awkward interactions with many of the girls. I don’t do well with small talk and often cannot engage in a conversation about their work; if it’s a stranger, I have most likely not seen their work and if it’s a friend, it’s really weird to think about them in a sexual context much less talk about their work in a clinical manner. But, hey, I’m at a porn convention and people tend to talk about porn at such conventions so I should call this the porn convention paradox.
I’m always surprised at the friendships that arise over despite the brief awkward interactions over the years. I guess if they repeat enough times, the girls realise you’re just sincerely awkward and greet you with hugs and kisses, and unfortunately with Lexi Belle, unwanted ass grabbing and spankings; still better than being groped by Ron Jeremy though.
I do try to catch up with my friends in general but then get anxious about if I am keeping them from the next person in line as that is a potential customer. I also patiently wait in line at Exxxoticas not wanting to interrupt an ongoing conversation even despite my friend giving me all sorts of cues to interrupt and rescue them from a long talker. Heh. Sorry, Vicki Chase.
Which leads me to comment about the proliferation and dominance of webcam companies (MyFreeCams & Chaturbate) at the shows these days. Camgirls are often inexperienced in interacting with the attendees as opposed to the people in their camrooms. The crowds can be intimidating, and you may be disrupting some virtual conversation when you approach them. By patiently waiting on their conversations with their computers, my socially awkward ass may have creeped out a girl or two. I’ll call this the camgirl at a convention dilemma.
I had met a nice girl from MFC in Denver and was pleasantly surprised when she unexpectedly showed up in Chicago but she was only there to take pictures. She was the most beautiful girl at the show, but I didn’t tell her that because I gotz no GaMe, and it would sound like an insincere pickup line in a room full of beautiful women. In Denver, I had patiently waited for her at the risk of missing my flight home before I came to my senses and ran off. So I found her every day in Chicago, took a photo or two, and relieved the oncoming social anxiety by running away.
My favourite part about cons is relaxing with my friends after the show hours; whether it’s having dinner and drinks, a puff or two, staring at a spinning ceiling while listening to the lechers hit on my friends, or dancing the macarena with someone who is younger than the song.
Thank you, Stefanie, Catjira, and Monica, for being accommodating with me. You were my better half this weekend, Vicki. We made some beautiful photos, Haighlee. I’ll miss you too, Joseline.
