Fantasies really do come true, and especially this weekend in Houston when luminaries from the adult entertainment world converged at TeXXXas: The Expo. Hear what Evan Stone, Rebel Lynn, Natasha Starr and Nina Hartley had to say about dating other porn stars, their favorite position and their future in the porn industry.
The three-day event, held at Cover Girls Gentlemen's Club, featured autograph sessions, photo ops and the sexiest celebs from film, video and television, including headliner Vicki Chase.
Presenting sponsor Adam & Eve had a nice selection of novelties, gadgets and clothing, ranging from gateway lubes to kinkalicious. There was a lot of attention around their exclusive "The Sweet Revenge" bikini, a barely-there number that was a vision in sparkly pink and rhinestones.
Over on celebrity row, and a nod to the rising trend in video genres, we saw MILF stars Cherie Deville (Interracial Squirting MILFS), Penthouse Pet Natasha Star (She's My Stepmom) and the bootylicious Canadian Savana Styles (Busty Housewives 6).
Politics made an appearance, too. Nina Hartley (Hillary Gets The Black Vote) and Evan Stone (The Donald) have both released porn parodies; while the free-agent Sadie Santana has come out with Republican Candidate Wife Swap.
Other notables at the expo included AVN Hall of Famer Katie Morgan (Zack and Miri Make a Porno), AVN's Transsexual Performer of the Year Venus Lux, and July's DogFart Girl of the Month, Ryan Riesling.
Companion programming for the expo included a series of wicked after-parties at some of our favorite clubs. The late night shenanigans kicked off on Wednesday at The Men's Club, followed by a "Therapeutic Thursday" bash at the newly remodeled Ritz Cabaret. Vivid – voted "Best Strip Club" by Houston Press in 2015 – hosted Friday's shindig, giving patrons an eyeful of both the new decor and its new no-latex policy up top. Saturday's closing party at Vivid Gentlemen's Club had a tiki-luau theme, which made for a little fun with all of the "getting lei'd" jokes.
