Record-breaking adult premier health, sexuality and lifestyle expo SEXPO, will be making its highly anticipated 2017 return to Melbourne from 16th – 19th November.
SEXPO will be debuting a brand-new theme for the first time worldwide: ‘SEXPO Goes Retro’, at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
As the longest running adult event in Australia spanning over two decades, this new retro theme for SEXPO also acknowledges those who have long-since been part of the evolution of the adult industry.
International veteran adult entertainer Ron Jeremy, who began his adult career in 1979, will be returning to Australia for the first time in more than five-years to appear at SEXPO Melbourne and meet and greet with fans. American adult star Lisa-Anne, who has a career spanning more than 20 years will also be attending SEXPO in conjunction with exhibitor Fleshlight.
“Our retro SEXPO theme gives us the chance to celebrate how far the adult industry has come since our initial SEXPO held in Melbourne 21 years ago,” says Bentleigh Gibson, SEXPO Event Director.
“From an education, health, and technology standpoint, the industry has really evolved and has become a mainstream topic of conversation. Our retro theme pays tribute to the early days of the adult industry and also celebrates just how far we’ve come; more than ever SEXPO is about inclusiveness and community.”
This retro SEXPO will feature a range of attractions giving attendees a ‘blast from the past.’ The SEXPO Retro Lounge will include a display on the evolution of porn, including VHS tapes showing older movies, retro furnishings and gaming consoles. Guests can also expect to see a series of muscle cars including a ’60 Dodge, ’72 GT and ’69 Buick along with a ‘Back to the Future’ spec Delorean.
“We are giving people the chance to step back in time throughout SEXPO Melbourne. On its brand new, redesigned main stage, world-class performances from Isabelle Deltore (Miss Nude World 2015), Satine Sparke and Miss Nude World Performer of the Year 2017, will offer guests a retro flavour. This is one SEXPO production truly not to be missed,” said Mr Gibson.
Education, health and diversity will feature heavily throughout SEXPO Melbourne. Internationally acclaimed transgender adult star Jane Marie will be appearing at SEXPO for the first time. “We had an overwhelmingly positive response from guests in Melbourne last year when we had trans adult star Venus Lux here for SEXPO. It proved that Aussie’s want the diversity they see in real life reflected and we are absolutely delighted to have Jane Marie on the ground this year meeting and greeting with our attendees,” says Mr Gibson.
Other adult stars in attendance at SEXPO Melbourne include Marica Hase (Japan) and Emily Addison (USA) thanks to Penthouse, as well as Aussie favourites Madison Missina, Jake Ryan and Aubrey Black.
Like at other SEXPO events in recent years, education will be key with the Red Hot Pie S.H.A.R.E Seminar Room acting as a hub for adult education about sexuality, health, lifestyle and intimacy, covering a range of topics that a lot of people may be afraid to address publicly. Seminars will be conducted by a range of experts in their fields including Dr Janet Hall, Dr Paul Maginn, Gold Medal winning Paralympian Sam Bramham OAM, and 2017 The Bachelor contestant and love coach Belinda Love.
“This year in Perth and Brisbane our seminar room has been packed from start to finish, with adults seeking education on a range of different topics. We’ve developed an educational and health-focused program featuring local and international experts exclusively for SEXPO Melbourne and have no doubt of the strong response we expect to receive,” says Mr Gibson.
“There is truly something for everybody at SEXPO, whether it be your first time visiting or your twenty-first. We’ve had over 3 million people visit SEXPO over the years, and this has truly evolved to a health and lifestyle show that is not only educational, but also happens to be a lot of fun! We encourage everybody to visit SEXPO Melbourne 2017 for the full SEXPO experience,” says Mr Gibson.
SEXPO Melbourne will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 16-19th November 2017.
