Report from the Adult Entertainment Expo 2010

For the last two days, I’ve been in Vegas for the annual Adult Entertainment Expo. The convention seems a lot smaller to me than years past, but thankfully that doesn’t mean there’s been a big reduction in opportunities to see and talk to the hottest stars in the business.

Some of the highlights of my trip so far have been:

  • Meeting and developing a huge crush on Asa Akira
  • Finding out, a bit to my surprise, that a lot of stars are really proud of the AVN Awards they’ve won
  • Watching Ashley Fires’ fembot impression.
  • Talking to Katsuni about how she ended up in Mexican prison in 2004
  • Learning that everyone in the Evil Angel booth thinks I look like that chick from Twilight.
  • Getting to meet the legendary and retired Angela Summers. She didn’t rule out making a comeback as a cougar!
  • Talking football with Jesse Jane.
  • Hearing about Belladonna’s love of birdwatching and the Scrub-Jays in her backyard.

Here are a few pictures I’ve taken while I’ve been here:

Nicole Ray Sunny Lane Raylene Naomi Banxxx Kristina Rose and Faye Reagan Diamond Foxxx Nikki Benz

If you’d like to see more, check out my Flickr page and my Twitpics. I’ll be updating them both (as well as Twitter) through Sunday. I’m also hoping to get a pass to photograph the red carpet at the AVN Awards, so keep an eye out!

    sounds like you having fun. don’t forget those of us in the east and southeast that are freezing their asses off right now.
    also wanted to know out of curiosity,who’s lips are on the top right hand corner as we enter the blog page. i have always thought that was a very sexy red lipstick. if it is none of my business just say so,anyway whoever owns the lips they are dynamite. i know it sounds crazy me getting excited about just a pair of lips and not even seeing the person,but we already knoow i am crazy anyay so what the fuck difference does that make

    Good stuff Alison. Enjoying the pics and Twitter updates. A couple of questions and comments if I may:

    – How did you learn that Sophie Dee has “extremely squishy boobs”?
    – How high off the floor is the Fleshlight wall display?

    – The “slightly upsetting ornament” made me laugh.
    – Good to see some of the less covered stars like Naomi Banxxx.
    – Next time Mr. Pete says hi to you in the hallway, say hi back.

    @ HotScooter2 – Those are my lips. The VideoBox photographer (was it Noah?) wanted a full body pic but I insisted on lips only.
    EDIT: Oops, thought you were referring to a different image. Sorry HS2.

    @ Imadick – Didn’t a French judge prohibit Katsuni from using the name Katsumi in early 2007? And didn’t she pay a stiff fine for violating the ruling before yielding and changing her name?

  4. davros Says:

    I can understand your crush on Asa Akira. I often wonder if she got her name from the classic anime film …

  5. tkingdom Says:

    what happened to nicole ray? she sure looks different from her videos on this site.

  6. alison Says:

    HotScooter2 – I really do feel for the folks who are freezing their asses off right now. The lips belong to the very beautiful girlfriend of a guy who used to work here.

    Imadick – Katsuni lost the use fo her name because she was sued by another woman named Katsumi. ropeadope is correct about the details.

    rope – Glad you’re enjoying the updates 🙂
    – I asked her about getting fake boobs and she started squeezing them to demonstrate how squishy they are. Nope, I didn’t get to feel.
    – I think the thing’s like 10 feet tall. The top row of orifices is probably a little above my head (I’m 5’4″).

    davros – I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that she did.

    tkingdom – Honestly, I had to double check that it was Nicole Ray. She looks really thin and kind of unhealthy to me. A shame, really.

    Unrelated subject: I bought a WD TV HD Media player and it won’t play wmv dvd files dounloaded from VB on my external hard drive. It says to convert to a playable format even though on the box it says it plays wmv9 video files.

    Oh and bye the way Hi, Alison sounds like your having fun at the AEE. I look forward to your interviews,blogs,tweets, etc.

  8. Imadick Says:

    UH..(insert Johnny Carson impression here)..I did not know that.

  9. alison Says:

    garbman – I’m not enough of an expert to answer your question, unfortunately. Have you emailed And thanks, I am having fun. I hope you end up liking the interviews.

    Imadick – I would guess almost no one but huge porn nerds (aka ropeadope and myself – sorry rope) would’ve known.

  10. ropeadope Says:

    @ alison – Lol, no offense taken. I’m uncool and wear it proudly. As an example, my original comment referencing Mr. Pete above was, “…. say hi back, then kick him in the balls and run like Hell.” But that would have been too daring. So I settled for the uncool “…. say hi back,” and left it at that.

    @ Imadick – Excellent impression. Unlike Alison, I’m ancient enough to not only hear Johnny’s voice when reading your comment, but see his facial expression as well.

    Dear Alison,
    I was wondering by any chance if Ginger Lee was there? I will admit that i’m hung up on her pretty bad after seeing her scenes on here. Plus i was wondering if there is some more of her stuff out there that you could put on the site?
    Thank you and i’m jeleous you got to go to AEE and i got to freeze my ass off in OK, but at least it seemed like you enjoyed yourself.

    To garbman and all other WD TV HD Media player users – Be sure to use H.264 (MPEG4 64Ox480) format files, since WMV files are not supported and will not work on this player.
