I made a quick stop in Chicago to visit Exxxotica this weekend. It was well attended show, especially on Friday and Saturday, and is much busier than my experiences with the Exxxoticas in Miami and Los Angeles. Again, the Ladies Free Friday promotion helped bring out the people after work. Girlfriends and wives were accompanying their men, and groups of women shopping were seen throughout the convention that day. Every porn star I talked to indicated that business was good and people were eagerly buying their merchandise.
The stage shows were stronger this year with Belladonna doing her aeriel silk show on the main stage this year and Stoya doing her aeriel ring show. Both performers have immensely improved from the previous year with their technique, strength, and tricks.

Some other notes:
- Gianna Michaels and Ron Jeremy were easily the most popular porn stars signing while Clips4Sale with Ashley Fires and Missy Rhodes had the most popular booth.
- Web model, Eva Lovia, won the Ms. Exxxotica Chicago contest, and she was easily the most striking new girl that I’ve seen. Imagine a taller Cris Taliana with boobs.
- Brooklyn Lee and Tasha Reign humoured me when I asked for a President Clinton shot. Probably because the request didn’t involve cigars.
- Brooklyn and Stoya also wrestled in a lube match sponsored by Fleshlight. Think oil wrestling.
- Teal Conrad and Raven Bay were both newbies who seemed happy to greet the fans. I had extensive conversations with them.
- Jesus may Love(s) Porn Stars,but apparently XXXChurch doesn’t love Buddhists. They visibly scowled at me when I explained that I would not accept their stickers because of my religion.
- Aleksa Nicole kept turning her face away when I asked and tried to take a photo. Not sure what was going on there. Maybe she was charging for photos of herself only.
