IT’S nearly time for the biggest adult entertainment event in the world – and an award-winning performer has revealed to Daily Star Online just what goes on.
Over 500 adult film stars are descending on Las Vegas, Nevada, for the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo held from January 23 to 26.
It’s expected to be the busiest year ever with 50,000 people expected to head to The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in the US party city.
Adult performer Whitney Wright, 26, is one of the newest faces in the industry and will be there for the second year running.
The raven-haired, green-eyed US beauty of Welsh descent has become a fan favourite.
“You’ll look and see a bunch of girls dancing on the signing tables in their sexiest expo outfits”
She’s the star of more than 60 adult films since launching her on-screen career in September 2016.
She earned Best New Starlet AVN Award nomination for 2018 and is nominated for five awards for 2019 including Female Performer of the Year.
Speaking to Daily Star Online, Whitney described the event as “so much fun”.
She said: “The event is like a big, giant meet and greet mixed with a parade mixed with a party.
“All the booths have something different going on.
“You’ll look and see a bunch of girls dancing on the signing tables in their sexiest expo outfits, and then you’ll walk into the next room and see people lining up to be flogged at another booth.
“Walking the red carpet is always a blast.
“The AVN awards truly are ‘the Oscar’s of porn’, and you see it when you line up and walk the carpet and see it all come together during the awards ceremony.”
Held since 1998, fans seek autographs, photo opportunities, and memorabilia of their idols.
There are sex products on show, including sex robots and dolls, and even mystery products which will be revealed at the event.
And adult film stars are recognised the final day with an awards ceremony.
The best thing about the event though, according to Whitney, is the thousands of fans who attend.
She said: “I love meeting the fans! They’re always so nice and sweet.
“A lot of them come with things for me, like little gifts and flowers.
“I get to meet people from all over the world.
“Last year I met a guy from Australia that brought me a photo of myself to sign for his friend.
“We still follow each other on Instagram I love mingling with people at the expo.
“I’ve only been to the expo last year, but I had an awesome experience.
“Everyone was respectful and courteous.”
