Tampa Show 2004, Day One

Despite the wrath of Ivan, it was a smooth flight for nearly fifty adult performers as they arrived for the first day of the 12th annual Tampa Show. The plane from L.A. actually landed a half-hour early.

Once settled in at the hotel, our group has almost completely filled the place through next Tuesday. Folks relaxed at the pool and in their rooms, and took part in a lavish buffet laid out in their honor.

The only scheduled personal appearance for this first day was the entire group commandeering a fancy nightclub (not a strip club) called Fat Cats, in nearby New Port Richey. From 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. at this special VIP event, they scoffed at jet lag and proved real troupers and party animals.

Things did almost get out of hand. The club owner put in “stripper poles” at this otherwise mainstream, non-nude club, and girls like Lori Alexia (Miss Nude USA) and others had a blast showing off, dancing and flashing. Also very appreciative of the poles and the club’s obvious fondness for the stars were a bubbly Alexis Amore, Olivia O’Lovely, Selena Silver, Stormy and many others.

One memorable quote by editor Mike Moz of Nightmoves Publishing, which sponsors the Tampa Show, was repeated throughout the evening and elicited chuckles from everyone in earshot. It seems that at the club, an unshaved and panty-less Felicia Fox hiked her skirt up over her waist for some serious flashing. Moz took one look and proclaimed, “It looks like Felicia has Chewbacca in a leg lock.”

Lack of sleep never hindered the stars, and many could be seen at the hotel pool until nearly dawn. A security guard gave them privacy as they did with each other what folks in this biz are often envisioned doing. Things got pretty crazy.
