Porn And Pot Are Like Milk And Cookies: Exxxotica Teams Up With Hempcon at L.A. Convention Center This Month
Exxxotica

You gotta love this town. Not only do we have way too many "adult" confabs at the L.A. Convention Center (three and counting). But now August's upcoming porn fest has announced it is teaming up with another bastion of vice.

Because nothing goes better with nudity and smut like class-A, schedule 1 drugs! (Did we mention that we love this town?).

That's right, people, the Exxxotica porn convention Aug. 26-28 announced today that it is teaming up with ...

Hempcon.

Yeah, the cannabis convention. Get all your dregs of society in one place at one time. (We'll be there, too).

Hempcon organizer Edwin Edwin Kwong:

The combination of Hempcon and EXXXOTICA is a virtual playground for inquisitive adults. We are getting an amazing reaction from the people of Los Angeles. Our show always does well in LA, but we are expecting even greater results with EXXXOTICA next door.

Wow. Wonder if parole and probation will be there. Must be like shooting fish in a barrel.

Anyway, Exxxotica is promising a bevy of porn star appearances, from Ron Jeremy to onetime Charlie Sheen fave Capri Anderson.

This might piss off Adultcon, which was holding such smut fests at the Convention Center long before Exxxotica. (We attended last weekend's event and can testify about its stellar eye candy and gracious hosts. We actually ran into Princess Leia, a.k.a. Allie Haze of Star Wars XXX fame, and didn't recognize her without her buns. See our NSFW slideshow from the event here).

Anyway, the folks behind Adultcon said they're pulling out of the Convention Center unless it stops booking other adult fests so close to its shows.

Well see if this pairing of porn with pot will embolden Exxxotica to stay put. As you know, weed makes you not want to move around so much. Stay tuned.
