It all started at about 7 P.M. on Friday evening, that's when I set out on my journey across the midwest into the windy city to meet some of my favorite porno girls in the business. After a 7 hour drive, I met up with friend and fellow XCritic reviewer Sean DPS, as well as his buddy @magicseamonkey, and we made our way to the convention. I was really excited about the day we had ahead of us, and I'll try to keep it short here, but I'd love to give you some of the highlights, as well as a couple of the interviews that I did.
A nice greeting from one of the Exxxotica dancers!
One of the first girls we encountered was Christie Stevens, whom I also had plans to interview later in the day. She looked gorgeous and was incredibly nice. I introduced myself somewhat nervously, and immediately felt comfortable when realizing how easy she was to talk to. We snapped a couple of pics together and Sean also took some fantastic solo pics of her that you can see in his Exxxotica Chicago 2012 gallery here. It was a great first introduction and after talking with her for a little bit we moved on to check out some of the other festivities.

I met briefly with many of the other girls at the convention such as Tori Black, Gianna Michaels, Kristina Rose, Jynx Maze, Brooklyn Lee, and many others. I must say that this was somewhat of a mind-blowing experience for me. Seeing some of these girls that I've adored for so long for the work they've put into this business, it was truly a great feeling. Here are some pics I got with the girls.

I was pretty antsy about meeting Ashley Fires and was wondering if she might know who I was since we've shared a couple of tweets with each other throughout the past couple years. Sean and @magicseamonkey were unaware of her work, which I was a little surprised about, but that would no longer be the case, just trust me on this one. When we approached the Clips4Sale booth I noticed her, along with her friend, Clips4Sale girl Missy Rhodes. I'm pretty sure Ashley noticed my face light up when I saw her, and when she did she came around to me and shook my hand. I introduced myself as 'Porno Nerd' from twitter and the handshakes immediately turned into hugs. Ashley seemed pleased to meet me and the feeling was far beyond mutual. I am always, and will always be a FAN of porn first and foremost, and a girl like Ashley Fires, who is one of my favorite girls in the industry, noticing me as a fan is an indescribable feeling. So that itself would have been enough, but there was more, oh boy there was more. Almost immediately after I met her she asked me kindly if she could masturbate and climax on my lap. Yes, you read that right. I, being the kind gentleman that I am, obliged ecstatically, and Ashley did her thing. To say the very least, it was incredible, I was speechless.
As the day went on we spent a good amount of time at the Clip4Sale booth and it wasn't just about the fact that Ashley did those things, but more that she acknowledged me as a fan, I can't stress that point enough. It makes you feel pretty appreciated when one of your favorite porno girls in the world does that, and that really made my day. I would actually like to give a huge shoutout to everyone at the Clips4Sale booth. The antics, games and stage shows that took place there were above and beyond the highlight of our day, it just so happened that we were involved in most of them, so thanks for that as well. Check out Clips4Sale for all your fetish needs, and I do mean ALL!!
Ashley, you had me at hello.

As the day progressed I shared some nice conversation with a variety of the girls as well as Mr. Pete, who was also very gracious. I talked a little bit with him about his career and some of the great scenes he's performed in, as well as some of the girls at the convention. He seems like an all around great guy.
Me cheating on my interview with Christie Stevens
My interview with Christie took place around 5 o'clock. Unfortunately, the dreaded 'first interview jitters' got the best of me early on, hence the reason for the interview being split into two parts, but Christie was a sweetheart and was really undertsanding, I'd like to thank her for that. It was a great interview in my opinion and Christie is a really fantastic girl, we talked a lot about some of her upcoming scenes as well as her experiences thus far in the industry. A big thanks goes out to Christie for the interview and everything! Here they are.

Afterwards, we went to Belladonna's tent, where I purchased her 'Cirque De Bella' poster. She autographed it for me, and we shared a brief conversation that was a big part of my day. I am a huge fan of Bella, and feel that she is a huge inspiration for upcoming porn girls. She really appreciated the fact that I recognized that. It was a great experience to be able to talk with her, and I even shared a bit of conversation with her husband Aiden who travels with her, as well as helping her direct many of her movies. Unfortunately, we missed her stage show on Saturday, but I was able to catch it on Sunday and I must say it is FANTASTIC. A must see for all fans of Belladonna.

So as the day was winding down, I was thinking of perhaps asking Ashley Fires about getting an improptu interview, never hurts to ask right? Anyways, she was very nice and granted me the pleasure of conducting a short interview with her. It went better than I could've imagined, and Ashley was a pro. I would like to personally give her a special thanks for being a huge part of the reason that I enjoyed my first experience at Exxxotica so much. Ashley, you are fantastic!
I'll close in saying that this was a truly great experience for me. If you've never been to an Exxxotica convention I implore you, as a fan, you must. Everyone was very kind to us, and the overall experience is a must for all porn fans.Thank you Exxxotica, for a great experience in my porno endeavors!
