FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sexpo® Is Coming to The United States & You Can Help Decide Where It Will Be Held 

(Melbourne, Australia) Sexpo® is literally taking the world by storm. First Australia, then South Africa and London. Now, their next planned takeover is the United States, and they want you to help decide where it will be held, as part of their pre-launch campaign.

This week, Sexpo® announced their US pre-launch campaign that includes a contest to win a trip to the first US Sexpo®. To enter the contest, you need to take the survey and give your gender, age, zip code and whether you would come solo, with a partner or a group of friends. If the event is held outside of the winner’s home state, they will receive two VIP Sexpo® gift bags and two Free VIP tickets to the first health, sexuality and lifestyle expo in the US, including airfare (from within the US) and hotel accommodation for two people. If the expo is held in the winner’s home state, they will win two VIP Sexpo® gift bags and two Free VIP tickets to the consumer event, plus $1,000 spending money. The contest is open now through September 30th. Visit www.Sexpo.com to have your say, or to do some online shopping.

David Ross, Australia’s Founding Event Organizer has taken on the challenge to expand in the US. “I consider now the ideal time to penetrate the American market, and as a result, I have acquired the rights to run Sexpo® events in the US, from our Australian parent company. We believe the Aussie flavor of the event will be well received in the US.”

“There are various adult type exhibitions around the world, including a few held in various states of the US; but none use the combination of entertainment and education in the way Sexpo® does, this combination has successfully won support from media and public alike,” continues Ross. “This focus ensures our attendance numbers are far better than any competing event, as we have not alienated females which comprise 50% of the population. Our best attendance for a show is 68k with 35k being our average over four days, making us the busiest stand-alone adult show in the world.”

Sexpo® is the world’s largest and longest running health, sexuality and (adult) lifestyle exhibition that has operated out of six states in Australia since 1996, has run under a licensee in South Africa since 2007, and had their first London event in 2015.

David Ross will be in the US at the end of September to make further announcements. All business inquiries about Sexpo® should be sent to him at info@Sexpo.com.

All media inquiries about Sexpo® should be directed to Erika Icon of The Rub PR at erika@therubpr.com.

Adult Performer Advocacy Committee Releases Official Launch Statement

FEBRUARY 4, 2014 – LOS ANGELES, CA – The Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC) officially announces its creation, with its mission the advocacy to maintain and improve safety and working conditions within the adult film industry. An organization created solely by performers, APAC gives adult industry talent organized representation in matters that affect performer health, safety, and community.

 

The mission of APAC is to provide representation for performers within the adult film industry, and to protect performers’ rights for a safer and more professional work environment. To that end, APAC will review existing health and safety protocols, and initiate new ones as needed; by creating unity amongst adult industry talent, APAC hopes to strengthen the industry’s ability to address current issues and concerns.

 

As part of the Committee’s launch, APAC released a “Porn 101” video. A DVD copy was released to all industry talent attending the recent Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada; the video can also be seen here. APAC will be releasing additional videos that will continue to educate industry performers, as well as the general public, on various aspects of sexual health and awareness.

 

“Porn 101 is just the beginning in our endeavor to educate,” says Chanel Preston. “It’s important for us to help others gain a better awareness for their sexual health in and out of the industry. This will help keep our industry a safer place to work. We care about our health as performers and it’s time we take more control of it.”

 

Industry acceptance of the Committee has been strong and positive; AVN covered the release of the “Porn 101” video. Of the video, Mark Kernes writes, “The video itself … is divided into several sections, including How to Get In, Payment, Health, Set Etiquette, Consent, The Internet, and Other Forms of Revenue – and as might be expected, the Health section is easily the longest. But the entire production is so full of good advice that no one working in front of the camera should fail to see it.”

 

Resources will be made available to new and current adult industry performers in the way of continuing education and communication. Performer meetings will be held the first Sunday of every month; all performers are encouraged to attend and to get involved, so APAC may have a better understanding of performers’ needs and wants, concerns, and suggestions to better the industry as a whole.

 

“I think that performer education and support are two of the most needed resources for our industry, and I’m happy to do what I can to contribute,” says jessica drake. “I love the idea that APAC is for the performers BY the performers, and not affiliated with any other organizations. I encourage all performers who want to be involved to reach out to us, come to a meeting, and share your thoughts and concerns to help better the business of which we’re all a part.”

 

Through education amongst performers and the greater adult film industry community, development of ethical best practices, and a fostering of solidarity, APAC is committed to working cohesively with all aspects of the adult entertainment industry and the public. APAC’s goal is to strengthen unity between all performers, and to maintain a work environment where workers are valued, respected, and educated.
