The 2014 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo returned to the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas this past weekend. Now in its 16th year running, this trade show for the adult entertainment industry brings together tens of thousands of people from around the world, including those in the industry and all the fans. Traditionally, only those in the industry could attend the first day or two, designated as trade days. Fans could attend the latter of the days of the expo, with the AVN Awards taking place on Saturday, which required a separate ticket to attend. The entirety of the expo covered three ballrooms. The first room, called The Joint, contained the Fan Fest, which featured a large portion of meet & greets for fans to obtain autographs, photos, and other memorabilia. This room also featured the stage for occasional interviews and other performances, such as an aerialist act. The second room, called The Muse Hall, contained the general expo, where most of the companies and exhibitors set up. The third room, called The Artist Hall, contained the Novelty Expo, open only to industry attendees.

Anyways, plenty of information exists on the official website and countless other third-party sites. Although I did not take as many photos as I had hoped to take, I still took my fair share. I had arrived late on Friday, so I missed the expo, but I still made it on time to a meet & greet with Violet and Jenn (not pictured). Lucy also hung out for a while for these photos:

Starting from The Joint, this hall contained the most amount of people, making for slow navigation of the narrow walkways.

Many of the stars made an appearance for fans to meet. Although not as many showed up as on Friday, this room remained busy the entire time.

At one point, an aerialist act started in the middle of the room.

Moving on to The Muse Hall, fans could find some of the stars here as well. As the room that contained exhibitors, plenty of other action occurred here as opposed to The Joint. Nothing explicit ever occurred, but some of the action definitely turned heads without thought.

The friskiest action occurred at the MyFreeCams section. These girls let everything loose and did not adhere to any professional standards. If any of the fans wanted to see action up close, they would find themselves here at the MyFreeCams section.

And of course, I could not help but take a few photos for myself.

No one can predict the future of the industry. While the Adult Entertainment Expo will not leave Las Vegas any time soon, other similar expos may not face the same outcome. While Exxxotica has found its place away from the west coast, Adultcon appears to struggle on the west coast. The industry has seen a slow decline in the greater Los Angeles area over the past few years, and the passing of Measure B has only steepened that decline. The advent of new technology may also shift the face of the industry in an entirely new direction, much like how social media does for anybody and anything. What can we expect to see occur in the adult entertainment industry this year? With this much volatility, no one can truly predict an outcome.

As a wise man once said, “In volatile market, only stable investment is porn!”
