Adultcon 11 (NSFW, previous Adultcon coverage here, here, and here) is occurring this weekend at the LA Convention Center, and based on the preliminary guest lineup (NSFW) posted thus far, it’s unfortunately underwhelming, as the pornstar wattage seems to be getting progressively worse with each successive show (for instance, A-listers such as Ron Jeremy, Belladonna, Jenna Jameson, and the girls of Club Jenna, have appeared at previous shows).
That being said, I predict that the lackluster roster of stars, long lines for admission (it took over an hour at Adultcon 10), and alarmingly high price of admission ($35.00/day, although apparently one who attends on Saturday can return free on Sunday) won’t deter the huge throngs of overwhelmingly young men from checking it out for themselves, as the opportunity to meet pornstars in the proverbial flesh is too irresistable.
But based on past experience there, my recommendation is to save your money for the similarly-themed yet larger conventions, such as January’s AVN (photo coverage here and here as well as The Cobrasnake‘s photo coverage here, here, here, and here) in Las Vegas or next summer’s Erotica LA (previous coverage here, here, here and here).
More after the jump.
However, if you decide to go, take my advice and go early, not only to avoid those long lines but to get a good parking space: Saturday’s hours of operation are 1:00 PM-9:00 PM and Sunday’s are 1:00 PM-6:00 PM. And check out their rather lengthy list of rules (NSFW) and sales pitch:
The girls at Adultcon do not get paid to be there. That is the difference. They can afford to take the time to talk to you, their fans. They cannot afford to give away anything as their photos cost money. At Adultcon, the girls will talk to you and smile at you. They care about you because they are there representing themselves. They want you to be a new fan or continue to be a fan, so they will take the time to talk to you as an individual. They want to win your loyalty. At Adultcon, adult stars give you the personal attention you deserve. The girls at Adultcon range from mega “contract” stars to newcomers. Many of the newcomers are the the stars of tomorrow. You will be able to look back and remember that you met these new stars at Adultcon when they have just started out in the business. So buy a photo with a personal autograph or a Polaroid picture with her and become a member of her website. Support her & she will return your support.
