With more than 300 porn princesses already registered for next month’s AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, organizers of the Jan. 18-21 adults-only events at the Hard Rock Hotel safely predict that it will be an all-time record turnout of tantalizing temptresses -- and the list is still growing.

“It’s the largest collection of adult stars to attend an event all under one roof at the same time. It will also be one of the biggest expos that’s ever taken place,” said Theo Sapoutzis, AVN chief executive.

The talent list, which has to be the industry’s largest Rolodex of names, includes Amber Ashlee, Zoe Voss, Brittney Blaze, Kimberly Kane, Madelyn Monroe, Samantha Saint and Tyler Tanner. Former adult superstars Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick are not expected -- at least not yet.

The four-day convention is capped with the Jan. 21 awards, and co-hosts Bree Olson -- Playboy cover model and Charlie Sheen’s former goddess -- and Sunny Leone are naturally included, but regular Las Vegas visitor Ron Jeremy is one of only two men on the list so far.

The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo precedes the 29th Annual AVN Awards at the Joint. It’s the premier gala of adult video and recognizes titles, individuals and companies for contributions to and excellence in the industry.

It’s where the busty beauties spill nearly everything -- or as much as the law permits -- and wear the most outrageous of low-cut gowns slit waist high tottering along a red carpet on the highest stiletto heels possible for their equivalent of Oscar night. There are awards for every sexual position imaginable, and some years the winners have thanked their moms and dads for making their dreams come true.

In a first, AEE will present more than 12 official porn parties held throughout Las Vegas, where expo attendees have the opportunity to upgrade their tickets to attend the ribald revelry. Special fan tickets also are now available with a VIP Fan Package for $100 that includes access to the Fan Fest featuring more than 300 adult stars, a separate VIP Entrance, a dedicated registration area, AEE Show Directory and a souvenir T-shirt.

Strip nightclubs have geared up for special Porn Week parties, including Jenna Haze and Jesse Jane soirees at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at the Paris; Dylan Ryder’s Fantasy Masquerade Ball at Gallery Nightclub in Planet Hollywood; and Bree’s official post-awards party, also at Gallery.

Food writer Al Mancini is hosting a porn-star celebrity brunch with adult actress Joanna Angel at First Food and Bar at the Palazzo. “Sex and food are the two primal instincts, and mankind needs both to stay alive -- so why not combine the two the day after the awards show?” Al said.

  1. I'm all in.

  2. Las Vegas welcomes the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo! Like it or not for many Nevadans, this industry CONTRIBUTES quite a bit in tax revenues, employment, and the purchasing of supplies. It is nice that this EXPO honors those within their industry, which is respectful. Enjoy your stay here in Las Vegas!

    Blessings and Peace,
