| Like a fine wine, EXXXOTICA New Jersey 2017 (http://nj.exxxoticaexpo.com) at the New Jersey Expo Center in Edison, has only gotten better with age. With a decade of “celebrating sexy”, the nation’s largest event dedicated to love and sex posted its most successful event to date over this past weekend.|
EXXXOTICA New Jersey, presented by MyFreeCams (http://myfreecams.com), knew before the doors opened that this was going to be a special show, with ticket pre-sales trending as high as 60% over the previous year. Those feelings became a reality when the line stretched the full length of the convention center with fans waiting to enter on Friday night. Each and every day of the expo surpassed the record attendance set in 2016 and had the expo center in near sold-out status. EXXXOTICA 2017 also enjoyed the show’s biggest sponsor and exhibitor sales ever with a sold-out expo floor, and the number of stars that attended was also the most ever for EXXXOTICA in its 12-year, 33-show, existence, cementing Edison, New Jersey as the show’s top destination of any of the nine cities across the United States that have hosted the expo.
“When we began producing EXXXOTICA in New Jersey amidst all of the controversy, we had no idea that we would even get the first year under our belt, let alone have this 10-year run and all of the success,” said J. Handy of Three Expo Events, and Director of EXXXOTICA. “We want to thank everyone that has contributed to making EXXXOTICA New Jersey such an incredible experience, especially our sponsors, exhibitors, stars, stage performers, seminar speakers, staff, and most importantly all of the fans. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!”
From the second EXXXOTICA opened its doors for Ladies Free Friday, presented by Pleasure Chest (http://pleasurechest.com), until the doors closed Sunday night, men, women and couples flowed through the doors all weekend long to meet their favorite stars, discover new crushes, shopped with exhibitors and checked out sponsors such as MyFreeCams, Chaturbate, Bad Dragon, Sapphire, CAM4, Clips4Sale, Collectors Expo, LA Direct Models, XXX Church, and others.
Fans also enjoyed over 20 hours of shows on the Chaturbate Entertainment Stage (http://chaturbate.com), including an amazing performance by hip-hop legend Tone Loc on Saturday night. The jam-packed crowd went nuts from the opening notes of his hit “Funky Cold Medina,” to the closing number of “Wild Thing.” Other performance highlights included incredible performances by the Sapphire Sirens, Sircus and Broadway star and “American Idol” alum, Constatine Maroulis, as well as pole dancing championships, Alexis Texas’ Twerk contest, and lots more.
Two massive breakout spaces hosted 20-plus hours of sex education courtesy of the Bad Dragon Seminar Series (http://bad-dragon.com). The expanded schedule of curated topics were lead by EXXXOTICA’s resident sexpert, Tyomi Morgan, as well as some the biggest and most respected names in the industry.
Bad Dragon also sponsored Spotlight, which featured legends and the hottest stars in adult entertainment including Lisa Ann, Tera Patrick, Jenna Haze, Tori Black, Katie Morgan, Adriana Chechik, Lexi Belle, Teagan Presley, Alexis Monroe, Abella Danger, Angela White, Brett Rossi, Allie Haze, Harley Dean, Jelena Jensen, Jessa Rhodes, Mia Malkova, Monique Alexander, Nina Hartley, Phoenix Marie, Stoya and Vicki Chase.

Throughout the weekend, EXXXOTICA kept the fun going with the show’s official after parties. VIP attendees enjoyed the hottest parties with the stars of EXXXOTICA at hot spots such as Sapphire 39 and Sapphire 60 (https://nysapphire.com) in New York, Club Xcess in Staten Island, and Taboo Men’s Club in Linden, NJ which featured some of the top names in the biz performing, and the show’s host hotel was transformed into a live music club with bands like Big Bang Baby and Hot Date with amazing parties.
