EDISON, N.J.—If there's one thing the citizens of New Jersey can use this weekend, it's a little fun to take their minds off the hassles of Hurricane Sandy. The Exxxotica Expo is gearing up for a full weekend that will offer an array of distractions. In addition to the hundreds adult film stars and exhibitors, more than 24 hours of entertainment has been scheduled for the RealTouch Entertainment Stage over the course of the expo, which takes place November 9-11 at the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center in Edison, N.J. And on top of that, attendees will find an informative and entertaining schedule of seminars.

Headlining the RealTouch Entertainment Stage on Saturday night are Grammy Award winning hip hop artists Naughty By Nature. The New Jersey natives will perform a full set featuring their top hits, including “O.P.P.” and “Hip Hop Hooray.”

“In the wake of Hurricane Sandy devastating the state, people need an escape that brings them back to a happier time, and while we’re not saying Naughty By Nature or Exxxotica is even close to a cure for what everyone has been through the past week or so, we certainly hope that we can bring some fun back into people’s lives, at least for a few days or hours,” said J. Handy, director of Exxxotica. The Naughty By Nature concert is free for all attendees, and starts at 9 p.m. on Saturday, November 10.

Naughty By Nature is just one of the many acts and events set to take the stage at Exxxotica. Straight from the land down under are the Bad Boys of Australia male revue. The dancers have two shows on both Friday and Saturday, plus another on Sunday.

While the Bad Boys offer something particularly geared toward the ladies, the eclectic collection of performers being showcased on the RealTouch Entertainment Stage offers something for everyone. Digital Playground adult contract star Stoya will be performing her routine on the aerial ring each day, and longtime Exxxotica fan favorite Rubberdoll will give daily fetish performances that incorporate elaborate costumes, fun toys and pageantry.

The “Everything You Wanted To Know About Porn” question-and-answer session will feature a who’s who of the adult world, and Exxxotica’s longtime MC, Dan Diamond, will hit the stage with DJ Geenius, from the group Full Force.

Returning to EXXXOTICA will be the Rigor Mortis Revue. This collection of sultry performers will be taking the stage Friday and Saturday evening with their dark burlesque routines. And as always, a new Ms. Exxxotica will be crowned as more than 20 entrants from around the country strut their stuff starting Friday night, with the finals and crowning of 2012’s Ms. Exxxotica on Saturday night.

There are pleny of other surprises and events taking place on stage throughout the weekend, including the Tranny Strip presenting performers Ebonne Excell and Spicky Hilton, fantastic Hedonism vacation giveaways, Screaming O’s fake orgasm contest, and surprise performances and guest stars. A full schedule for the RealTouch Entertainment stage is available here.

For those willing to spice up their sex lives, learn more about their favorite adult film legends, or get pointers on how to break into the business, these are just some of the topics being covered in a packed schedule of entertaining discussions taking place all three days of Exxxotica as part of the expo's infamous seminar series.

Highlighting Exxxotica New Jersey’s seminar schedule are multiple discussions inspired by the Fifty Shades trilogy series. Experienced dominatrix Mistress C—along with other experts on the subjects of kink, BDSM, bondage and more—will be conducting daily seminars for those looking to take a walk on the wild side, or just satisfy their curiosity on what was once taboo and is now mainstream thanks to the best-selling books.

“This show will be producing our best lineup of seminars to date,” J. Handy said. “The seminars based on Fifty Shades have brought standing-room-only crowds in other cities, and we have expanded coverage for New Jersey. We also have added new questions on this and a vast variety of other subjects all three days of Exxxotica.”

A trio of the biggest names in the history of adult film—Ron Jeremy, Seymore Butts and Tera Patrick—will give spoken-word sessions during the weekend. Ron Jeremy will be packing them in for “The Legend of Ron Jeremy.” Tera Patrick, arguably the most beautiful star in history, will be reading excerpts from her best-selling autobiography, Sinner Takes All, and fellow AVN Hall of Famer Seymore Butts, the star of Showtime’s Family Business, will read from his best-seller, Rocking Worlds.

In addition to the discussions on Fifty Shades, Exxxotica presents even more seminars catering to women and couples. “Girl Talk with the Stars—No Boys Allowed” invites women to ask those burning questions to experts and adult stars. Moderated by adult star Joann Angel, her panel of sexperts will be sure to answer questions from inquiring minds.

“Breaking Into the Biz” daily seminars—moderated by Michael Fattorosi, a leading adult industry attorney—will offer advice and direction on how to take a piece of a $10 billion-a-year industry. Whether you want to sit home with a webcam or have visions of being adult’s newest star or director, you will find out how to make those dreams a reality from experts from the adult industry.

EXXXOTICA will have screenings of two of the biggest adult films of 2012 featuring the directors and cast members. The stars of Adam & Eve’s D3viance (director Joshua, and stars Teagan Presley, Alexis Texas, Lexi Belle and Sophie Dee) and Spartacus MMXII: The Beginning (director Marcus London, and stars Tommy Gunn, Tanya Tate, Devon Lee and others) will be showing their films and bringing fans into the inner workings of making these two early front-runners for movies of the year. They will also be giving away prizes to some lucky attendees.

Other seminars explore topics such as swinging, the use of sex toys in the bedroom, love-making tips from the pros, plastic surgery to improve your love life, the acceptance of your body, and more.
