LAS VEGAS - The 2009 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo kicked off Thursday morning as Wicked Pictures star Stormy Daniels cut the ceremonial ribbon, welcoming exhibitors and media to the first, trade-only day of the show.

Stormy had a little trouble with the giant scissors, but the multiple AVN Award-winning performer and director of such hits as Operation: Desert Stormy was all smiles. Photographers and media reps lined up to capture the moment before storming through the gates for another year of adult expo madness.
