(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Erotica L.A., the successful adult entertainment expo, now in its fourth year, is coming to the Los Angeles Convention Center June 2, 3 and 4. Promoter and adult-film entrepreneur Ron Miller sat down with Private Dancer Monthly to discuss the philosophy behind this extraordinary event, and the message that he hopes Erotica L.A. will send to mainstream America.
“Hey, this is the L.A. Convention Center,” Ron said matter-of-factly, “the floor isn’t sticky, its not a seamy neighborhood. You don’t have to worry about who sees you going in and out of there. This is bringing adult entertainment to the forefront of mainstream America.”
Fans of adult films will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of rubbing shoulders with the crème de la crème of the adult industry, and are even invited to bring their cameras to photograph their favorite stars or exhibits for posterity. Exhibitors will run the gamut, from “fringe” production companies to adult entertainment giants such as Hustler Video, Goalie and New Sensations. There will be booths devoted to adult-oriented vacation resorts, and original art by up and coming photographers such as Lori Mann. “There will be something for everyone,” Ron promised.
When asked to respond to the criticism that expos like Erotica L.A. are promoting the decay of family values, Ron is quick to respond in the negative. “Everybody, virtually everybody has sex,” Ron explained. “Whether it’s a traditional heterosexual relationship, a homosexual relationship, even masturbation. We hope that couples will come to Erotica L.A. and be inspired to talk to each other about their fantasies. They’ll see that they can do these exciting things together and still have a monogamous relationship.”
You can attend the expo for $15 ($10 with a coupon) from June 2 through 4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
