The annual parade of porn-princess pleasures begins Wednesday on the first day of the 15th anniversary 2013 Adult Entertainment Expo and 30th anniversary AVN Awards. It’s an all-star turnout for the triple-X, four-day feast of the flesh at the Hard Rock Hotel guaranteed to end our brutal Arctic ice air and send temperatures soaring into the sizzling sexties.

More than 30,000 are expected to attend AVN/AEE and turn the Hard Rock into a hedonistic playground. Think bulging bras, dangerous decolletage, higher-than-high heels, flashing fishnets, lacy lingerie and saucy stockings beneath slit short skirts. It’s the de rigeur uniform for photo and autograph sessions for fans and promotions of DVD releases.

It’s not Hollywood but rather the multimillion-megabucks adult-entertainment business that with recent law changes in California has sent filmmakers and starlets here, where statutes are not so strict. More than 150 beauties will showcase their assets.

Even controversial, headline-making Octomom Nadya Suleman will be signing autographs Friday and Saturday. Her eight children are staying home, and her

movie “Home Alone” is up for four awards. Adult entertainment powerhouse L.A. Direct Models will bring more than 40 of its stars, including Kagney Linn Karter, Christie Stevens, Aleksa Nicole and Teal Conrad.

“This is the biggest week in the adult industry’s year,” L.A. Direct Models owner Derek Hay says. “We’re bringing our superstars -- the veterans, the newbies, the rising starlets, the award winners -- to network with our colleagues and meet and greet the fans in four days of nonstop celebration.”

“I’m really excited for the expo this year,” L.A. Direct Models performer Aleksa Nicole said. “It’s my third year attending AEE and second signing for L.A. Direct. I’m looking forward to seeing all my fans in Vegas!”

The complete list of L.A. Direct Models: Lexi Belle, Tori Black, Alexis Texas, Andi San Dimas, Allie Haze, Jynx Maze, Tory Lane, Kagney Linn Karter, Gracie Glam, Ryan Driller, Ava Addams, Siri, Raven Rockette, Rikki Six, Lia Lor, Misty Stone, Tasha Reign, Aleksa, Eden Adams, Veronica Rodriguez, Christie Stevens, Teal Conrad, Lilly Banks, Raven Bay, Gaia, Dani Jensen, Natasha Starr, Natalia Starr, Natasha Vega, Brandi Aniston, Shay Laren, Charlee Monroe, Nikki Seven, Laela Pryce, Kiera King, Ava Divine, Tara Lynn Foxx, Maddy O’Reilly, Laly, Danny Mountain, Seth Gamble, Erin Marxx, Angelina Valentine and Asphyxia Noir.

Other participating L.A. modeling agencies specializing in porn include Spiegler Girls, 102 Models, Matrix Models, Foxxx Modeling, Type 9, Ideal Image and O.C. Modeling. Jessica Drake, who also is a sexual health and wellness educator, leads Wicked Pictures with her award-winning instructional DVD series “Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex.” The series is nominated for 4 AVN Awards, including a nod to Jessica for Best Overall Director.

The Wicked stars also include Stormy Daniels, crowned the #1 Porn Star in the World by Genesis magazine and dubbed “The New Queen of X” by Girls of Penthouse. Her movie “Blow” is up for Couples-Themed Release of the Year. Also appearing for Wicked: Alektra Blue, Kaylani Lei (nominated for 3 AVN Awards, including Best Actress) and Penthouse Pet Samantha Saint nominated as Female Performer of the Year.

Evil Angel founder, the always-controversial John Stagliano, who produced “The Fashionistas” here on the Strip, proudly declares his booth the ultimate smut emporium with his stars Brooklyn Lee, Lea Lexis, Francesca Le, Kelly Divine, Skin Diamond and Anikka Albrite. All six are featured in Evil Angel’s “Still Dirty After All These Years” campaigns, and all will be wearing sexy Baci Lingerie, the first underwear company to sponsor an adult studio wardrobe at AEE.

Fleshlight Girls Tori Black, Lisa Ann, Teagan Presley, Misty Stone and Jessica Drake will cut the ribbon to officially open the adult-expo festivities at noon Thursday in front of The Joint.

Much advance interest at AEE has been given to sultry blonde webcam model Madyson, who will be demonstrating RealTouch Interactive, which promises an online encounter that gives males their first true live Internet sexual experience. The system allows men to select a webcam model porn date and then view adult movies, which transmit her physical contact to him.

  1. So let me get this straight. (No pun intended.) Here's a week long celebration of women being paid t have sex on camera - which is totally illegal if done in a private room in Vegas.
