HOLLYWOOD, Calif.Tanya Tate, the British import who has caused controversy in England and Ireland, will be making a U.S. appearance this weekend at the Exxxotica Expo in New Jersey.

Tate made headlines in her home country of England earlier this year in a sex scandal involving an Irish pro-athlete. The duo filmed a sex scene for her infamous Tanya Tate’s Sex Tour of Ireland series for Television X, which incited a flurry. Since then, Tate has headed to the United States, where she recently won a Nightmoves Adult Award for her on-screen performances.

Now Tate is coming to New Jersey for the first time, to meet fans at this weekend’s three-day Exxxotica event. “This is my first visit to New Jersey, and I’m thrilled,” said Tate. “I’m excited to meet the fans out there; we're going to have a great weekend!”

Beginning Nov. 5, those who attend Exxxotica can get their picture taken with Tanya and pick up an autographed picture—or a copy of Mummy Mia, the DVD that won her her U.K. SHAFTA Award for Best Sex Scene. Tate will also take part in a seminar titled "Make Love Like a Pornstar."

Exxxotica takes place at the New Jersey Convention Center, 97 Sunfield Ave., Edison, N.J. More information on the event can be found at ExxxoticaExpo.com.
