THE “Ekka of sex” opened its doors to Brisbane this weekend and was met with its biggest crowds on record.
More than 40,000 people paid their way into the world’s biggest adult lifestyle show at the Convention Centre, dazzled by porn stars, strippers, showbags and sideshow alley.
Heavy queues for the Sex Train were matched only by the crowds gathered around the brave participants of strip poker, while porn stars Lexi Belle and Alexis Texis didn’t have time to put their breasts away, so heavy was the demand for a picture with them.

Despite the home wrecker tag, McGee attracted plenty of couples keen for a photo.
“I love what I do. This is so fun. A lot of people have come to see me out of curiosity and they’ve been surprised how nice I am,” she laughed.
“They think I’m going to be an awful, mean person.”
Queenslanders are by far the most enthusiastic for Sexpo in Australia, said the Sexpo general manager, Rob Godwin, adding they bombard staff with email inquiries months before it arrives. Mr Godwin also said the current economic conditions made sex more popular.
