My First Glance at the AEE



From the  very  first moment  I became an  adult  reviewer almost  two years ago, I  looked forward to what was and is  known as  the  biggest porn convention out in Vegas the Adult Entertainment Expo. Granted I've been watching porn since I can recall and remember watching Traci Lord, Seka Vanessa Del Rio and Ron Jeremy. The prospect of seeing all the   female talent in one place during a span of a week sounded like fun. It is to some extent. As a  first timer I took notice  of  a lot of  small things that to  others  wouldn't matter. Nevertheless, for me it led to a lot of questions. I know that right off the bat that the industry is made to help men live out   their fantasies with beautiful women.

However...what about the women that watch porn. Do they not deserve to see their favorite male talent as well? Granted a few of the most well know male performers do show up to meet and greet their fans but it is fair to the men not to be in a booth signing as well. Without men working side by side with the ladies would porn be the same, not really. You would have a vast amount of g/g titles than you would know what to do it.

Don't get me  wrong porn is the only place where in today  society it's a  female  domination workplace which is great but  also give  the men their  due. I've read many articles over the course of  two years just how  short  changed the men are in the  adult industry. Even  the  most recent  articles in XBiz Premiere has  a  write up  about  how literally is   harder it is  for men to make a  name  for themselves and  it  does  take a  toll on them too leaving them to  burn out  so much  faster.

Another thing that  I noticed of is  that  a lot of the  women on the  showroom floor that  professed that they take  care of  their  bodies don't and that's  a shame  especially since your body is  what is making you the  big  bucks. Perhaps its  just  vanity speaking but  the men  do make  sure that they  remain fit and toned from the  few that  I have had the pleasure of  speaking with.

 Something I seriously think more of the ladies should consider doing. Think of it as getting the most mileage out of a brand new car. You want to maintain it always before it breaks down on you. The  abundance of sensual and  sexy ladies at the  show made me  wonder  just how  many take the time out to  see to  keep  in shape and maintain that  youthfulness we  see on screen. As with any job, eventually it takes it toll some harder than the other making them look like skin and   bones and so very unattractive.

Don't get me wrong , I  have the  upmost  respect for  all the men and women in the  adult industry and  always  will. They  each  take on a role  which others  could never  do and  bring to life  so many  fantasies put before  them. For them this is "their job" and they enjoy bringing pleasure to the screen for so many others to enjoy. What more can one ask for...

The  show  had many  good points for me especially meeting the  close knit  family over at Shane's World( Megan, Nate Brother Love)and interviewing the wonderful ladies  from Digital Playground. I cant  wait till next year to  hang out with them again! I  also got to  meet the infamous Don Houston who has  been my mentor and a  great help with teaching me the ropes and then there is  "G" .. The heart and soul of XCritic.

 During the  course of the week, I met so  many  wonderful performer both  male and  female and saw  a  few which I have  had the pleasure of  already meeting here in  NYC:  Vivid Girls Savanna Samson,  Monique Alexander and the  Spanish heart throb Marco Banderas and  his  beautiful wife Lisa.

If there was a  high point to mention , I guess I  would have to say it  was  meeting several of the Directors from Vivid, Wicked( David Stanley... you are a man  with so  much  vision one  can not help  but wonder  how you  come up  with your ideas.. this  goes for  all directors at Wicked), Digital Playground and Shane's World and  getting to  talk with  them in length. But I think  the best thing that I  could say that  I  enjoyed was meeting  a few of  my favorite  men to watch on screen Evan Stone,  Manuel Ferrera, Tommy Gunn, Derrick Pierce and  of  course Jean Val  Jean who is  no longer in the industry.

Maybe next year things will be a  bit different with more of the men signing at the  booths and perhaps  maybe a  limit  set on just how  many  autographs  a fan can ask  for. That  was the only thing that  had  me  upset  through out the  entire week. Fans toting cases of pics  for the ladies to  sign and  take  up  precious  time in the process. Until next year.... But  for  now keep  reading  my reviews and please feel free  to comment on them and on my  story line  thread..
