Fleshlight Girls to Cut Ribbon at AEE Fan Fest 2013

LOS ANGELES—The 2013 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which celebrates its 15th year, will have the Fleshlight Girls cut the ribbon at noon in front of The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to kick off the Fan Fest portion of the Expo on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013.

Fleshlight Girls Tori Black, Lisa Ann, Teagan Presley, Misty Stone and Jessica Drake are slated to participate in the ribbon cutting.

"Fleshlight is pleased to know that our Fleshlight Girls are participating in the ribbon-cutting ceremony,” said Brian Shubin, Fleshlight COO. "We're happy to be partnering with AEE and AVN to help create a great event for the industry."

One of the largest adult trade shows in the world, AEE brings together an exciting and unique experience for everyone within the adult entertainment industry. AEE trade registration includes the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE), the industry’s leading B2B trade expo for pleasure products, the AEE Trade Show, and the AEE Fan Fest, giving fans never-before-seen access to the industry and its participants.

The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is a one-of-a-kind trade show experience that combines business-to-business transactions, networking, knowledge-sharing, talent appearances and special presentations for the public. The largest event of its kind, AEE showcases the most comprehensive collection of adult talent, exhibitors and products, which attracts buyers and fans from around the world.

Fleshlight was started in 1995, patents were received in 1998, and the company made its large online retail venture in 2001. Before Fleshlight went online, product creator, founder and mastermind Steve Shubin was molding the individual Fleshlight himself and hand-delivering the final products to retail stores like Good Vibrations. By taking the product online, the company became one of the first adult manufacturers to take its product direct to consumers. 

In 2006, Fleshlight started molding adult stars and launched the Fleshlight Girl division, which has grown into the powerhouse brand with exclusive molds of the world’s most famous and respected adult stars. The company is based in Austin, Tex. and reports that more than five million Fleshlight toys have been officially sold around the world.

Wednesday, Jan. 16, AEE is restricted to trade attendees only, and special “trade only” hours on Friday, Jan. 18 and Saturday, Jan. 19 will restrict access to industry professionals and the media in order to permit exhibitors to make and build business and media contacts before fans are allowed into the Expo.

Trade attendees who register before Oct. 15 will get a $100 fall discount special. Trade registration provides badge holders access to all AEE and ANE seminars, the main exhibit hall during all show hours, and the AVN Novelty Expo. Special fan tickets are also now available at fall discount rates. The VIP Fan Package includes access to the Fan Fest featuring over 300 adult stars, separate VIP Entrance, dedicated registration area, AEE Show Directory, and a complimentary T-shirt for $85. General Fan tickets are available now for $55 before Oct. 15.

AEE will be presenting more than 10 official parties held throughout Las Vegas, where attendees of the Expo have the opportunity to upgrade their tickets to attend these events.
