Since SEXPO’s humble beginnings in 1996, which began when founder David Ross held the very first event at the Carlton Crest Hotel featuring just 20 stands and drawing an astounding crowd of 8,000 people, organisers have seen 2.5 million others following in their footsteps.
This year, as the event celebrates its “coming of age” heading into its 20th year of success, event organisers are hoping to attract an influx of SEXPO virgins, as its focus has evolved into an event that proudly celebrates Health, Sexuality and Lifestyle.
Event Director David Ross says this year, ‘we specifically invite people who have never been to SEXPO, thinking it is just a big sex show, to come along and be pleasantly surprised by the fun and relaxed atmosphere.’
Looking for the perfect ‘fun and relaxed’ special guests to join Melbourne’s SEXPO event this year who have built a reputation for their colourful TV discussions about sex on The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Janet Roach and Jackie Gillies felt like a very natural fit to the event.
Also joining Janet and Jackie this year at SEXPO will be Angela White and Nikki Benz, stars of not only the adult film industry but both have also dabbled in politics. Plus, for the first time in Australia, the beautiful Japanese adult film star Marica Hase, who has taken the world by storm.
Back by popular demand are Melbourne’s premier male revue and burlesque group MenXclusive, the hilarious ‘comedy hypnotist’ Anthony Laffan, nude aerialist Arianna Starr, Australian adult star Lucie Bee, the Stilt Divas (featuring Penthouse Pet Crissy Lane), the genitally gifted artist Pricasso…with more exciting names soon to be announced.
And finally, with just a hint of the Matthew McConaughey’s in Magic Mike, SEXPO is currently searching for its very own Melbourne based SEXPO Idol, who will take over the mic at the 4 day event. To enter, simply head to the SEXPO website and upload you doing your thing!
