AEE & the AVN Awards, 2011

Surely by now you’ve heard some rumbling about the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) and the AVN Awards… but what exactly is the dealy-o, yo?

AEE is the largest adult industry trade show held in the US (and thus, probably in the world). All sorts of adult companies come to do business and network with their peers during what is always an intense, hectic, and super-fun time. And although AEE is primarily a business-oriented event, there are fan days too (so you can meet your favorite adult performers… or sociologist).

This year, AEE is being held at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, NV from January 6 – 9.  Fan days are January 7 – 9 (fan info here), and the AVN Novelty (read: sex toy) Expo is January 6-8.

The crown jewel event of AEE is the AVN Awards show.  AVN awards, which are often euphemistically referred to as the Oscars of Adult, honor the best, most creative, and most scintillating work produced during the past year with all the glitter and glamor you can imagine (the awards haven’t always been so glitzy though – check out a history of the awards show here).  This year, the AVN Awards are being held at the Palms Casino Resort, which is also in dirrty dirrty Las Vegas.

Why am I telling you all of this?

Well, aside from it being interesting, your fearless Dr. Chauntelle is currently about mid-way through packing for yet another AEE (early flight tomorrow… sigh). I will certainly keep you all abreast of what’s going down in Vegas as often as my little self can muster!!
