AEE Presents In-Depth Interview With 'It' Boy James Deen Jan. 19

LOS ANGELES—The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which will celebrate its 15th year at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, has announced a fan seminar for those who want the inside scoop on what adult and mainstream actor James Deen has been doing over the last year.

“An Hour With James Deen: Porn's New Poster Boy Dishes on Life in the Biz and His Trip to the Other Side” will be a special fan seminar being held on Saturday, January 19 at Vinyl, inside the Hard Rock Hotel. The seminar will begin at noon.

Can we finally say porn has become mainstream? The most recent crossover phenomenon is adult actor James Deen. With magazine articles written about his appeal to women and leading roles in major motion pictures written specifically for him, there's perhaps no better person to discuss the highs and lows of being a media darling from adult. In this panel, which is open to fan attendees of AEE, Deen sits down for a one-on-one conversation about the mainstream spotlight that is shining on him these days.

"With the extraordinary amount of attention James has attracted over the past year, this stands to be one of the most buzzed-about events at AEE, and I'm very stoked about moderating it,” said Peter Warren, senior editor at AVN. “Not many people have had the chance to experience a conversation with James Deen live and in person, and I think it's going to be a lot of fun. I told him we could drink wine and smoke cigars. He liked that idea."

All fan, trade and press attendees can go to for the 2013 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), which will be held in January at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. AEE will showcase an incredible lineup of the biggest names the adult industry has to offer, the hottest adult stars from around the world, a robust trade seminar program, stage shows, musical performances, and a first look at the cutting-edge technology behind some of the most innovative sex toys and novelties on the market today, and in the future.
