THE ADULT FILM MINUTE: Once per month, except for occasionally when it’s more frequent than that, Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals will be telling us a little bit about what’s going on in adult entertainment and why it should matter to you.

The Exxxotica Expo is a roving convention dedicated to love and sex. Past events have been held in Miami, Los Angeles, Edison (New Jersey), Chicago, and – most recently – Dallas.
There’s no “B2B” (business) component to the Exxxotica shows. Their stated purpose is strictly to provide the curious and consenting an opportunity to learn about all kindsa sex stuff. Attendees can shop for toys, learn about lifestyle communities (swingers, fetish stuff, etc), meet their favorite erotic entertainers – from top cam models and porn stars to local entertainers – and attend educational seminars.
I traveled to Exxxotica Dallas recently to moderate a talk – “Trainwreck: How Hollywood Portrays Sex.” Ashley Fires, Sydney Leathers, Kendra Sunderland, and Flash Brown accompanied me during the seminar. Here’s a picture:
The event was great – great questions, great focus, great energy. The crowd did however go into a deep distracted tailspin-swoon at one point when Flash described the process he underwent to have a sex toy molded from his 11-inch penis…
But there was another force even more powerful than Flash working to lure Exxxotica-goers away from my talk of Hollywood sex portrayal: Jesus. Or at least, people claiming to speak for him.
