Internext Parties: Walk on the Wild Side

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Getting excited about Internext Summer 2007? Here's a taste of what's to come.

First of all, we recommend taking advantage of a generous opportunity provided by SEXMoney: a free limousine transfer from South Florida airports. Transfers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To book the limo, email Ines Petersen by Monday, July 30. SEXMoney is an adult affiliate program with more than 350 paysites in 35 niches and 25 languages.

Things kick off from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, with a welcome cocktail party hosted by Internext at the Barsu sushi bar in the Westin Diplomat's lobby. Complimentary beer, wine, soda, and water will be served.

Lori Z., The Adult Broker, said she is excited about the conference, especially the annual GFY Warm-Up Party, which will follow the welcome cocktail party. "I will be attending the parties, of course. I always try to hit as many as I can to say ‘hello,' have a drink and offer a deal or two," she said. "My clients are sponsoring the warm-up, so I will definitely be there. So many parties, so many deals, so little time!" Everyone is invited to this event, which has been legendary since 2001.

On Friday, Aug. 3, Mike Price and the SilverCash crew will host the fifth annual SilverCash Bikini Invitational from 5-7 p.m. poolside. The hottest bikini models the East has to offer will compete for cash prizes totaling $5,000. This has been the can't-miss event at previous shows, and this year's installment promises to be the best yet.

SilverCash and sister company Silver Sinema also will host a poolside daily happy hour beginning at 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at noon on Sunday.

An important announcement has been made by Adult Revenue Service, which is partnering with Electracash to present the Bar Bash from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3. The party will be at the Barsu sushi bar, which is located in the Westin Diplomat's main lobby behind the waterfall. Nikki's Lobby Bar previously was listed as the party venue. (It's the same place; only the name has changed.)

Another rescheduling: While we were polishing our three-wheelers for the first-ever Miniature Tricycle Grand Prix sponsored by Python and DollarMachine, we received news that the show-floor event has been rescheduled for 1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3. Not an adrenaline junkie? Then cheer on your team as competitors vie for Internext supremacy and a $10,000 prize pool.

Also on Friday, PornCares and AVN Media Network will host the first Keg Party and Charity Auction from 8:30-10 p.m. in the Westin Diplomat's conference room no. 318. Original art, autographed DVDs, and passes for Internext Las Vegas 2008 are among the items to be auctioned off; proceeds will benefit charitable organizations like the Free Speech Coalition, NCAC, and IAVI. PornCares is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the reputation of the adult industry, curing AIDS, and fighting censorship and child pornography.

Rounding out Friday evening's events are the Bang the Champ Full-Contact Championship fights and the 2nd Annual AdultRental Wet T-shirt Contest. Bang the Champ, starting at 10 p.m. at World Famous Tootsie's Cabaret in Ft. Lauderdale, will feature local and national professional fighters of all styles: mixed martial artists, boxers, wrestlers and grapplers, and street fighters. The winners will participate in a fantasy date with the sexy ring girls. All Internext participants will receive VIP entrance and complimentary drinks with their Internext badges. The wet T-shirt contest will begin at 10 p.m. in the Westin Diplomat's Grand Ballroom, where beautiful girls will compete for $3,500 in cash prizes.

For the late-night crowd, Epoch presents the Cybersocket Webmaster Party on Friday night from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. at Coliseum in Ft. Lauderdale.

The Mansion Productions Summer Boat Party is ready to depart on a four-hour tour. A plush, three-level yacht will sail from 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, departing from the dock at the Westin Diplomat and traveling along the South Florida coastline. Sip refreshing cocktails at one of the two open bars and enjoy delicious appetizers. Listen to the cool beats of the calypso band playing on the deck. Try your luck at the luxurious on-board casino. Have a relaxing massage. On top of it all, a live DJ and a troupe of beautiful go-go dancers will keep the party swinging from start to finish.

"2007 has been a wonderful year at Mansion," Chief Executive Officer Oystein Wright told AVN Online. "We've released new products, taken on new clients, and expanded our position in the marketplace. This party on the water is our way of saying ‘thank you' to everyone who's helped us achieve success and reach every milestone."

At 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, PussyCash will name the winner of the 2007 Summer of the Sports Car Porsche Boxster Campaign. That night, PussyCash sponsors the infamous Players Ball, presented by D Money.

The Maleflixxx Cock & Tail Party, hosted by Maleflixxx and CCBill from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, is an Internext fixture for those in the gay adult industry. Maleflixx is particularly excited about the launch of Maleflixxx Live, its new live sex show. From 5-6 p.m., the company will stream a live show featuring Dallas Reeves and Jason Fury, and models will join the party for the remainder of the night, beginning about 7 p.m..

"The Maleflixxx team loves to throw the Cock & Tail as a great networking event for not only the gay industry, but for anyone interested in meeting the key players and learning more about what makes us unique," said Mary Gillis of Sureflix Digital Distribution, the parent company of Maleflixxx. "We are especially thrilled to host this in partnership with CCBill, our longest-standing payment processor."

The Porn Poker Tour returns once again, with the top five players from each day dueling it out at the final table in the hospitality suite Saturday night. The PPT is free to all show attendees and has an open bar, poker, T-shirts and more. The sponsors include CamZ, Netbilling, DatingGold, Eroticy and eRevCard.

"We are thrilled that Mitch [Farber of Netbilling] and Dan [Hogue of CamZ] invited us to be part of the Porn Poker Tour sponsor team, and we're happy to have their support for eRevCard," said eRevCard founders Greg Berard and George Polera. "We look forward to seeing everyone at the Florida Internext for some fun at the poker tables and to discuss how eRevCard can be your ace in the hole in making your business more efficient and more profitable."

As always, Cybersocket and Epoch join forces to close the show with a farewell cocktail party on Saturday from 8 p.m. to midnight in hospitality suites 301 and 302 at the Westin Diplomat.
