International webcam leader MyFreeCams.com has been appointed as the official naming rights sponsor for the Australian Health, Sexuality and Lifestyle brand, Sexpo. MyFreeCams.com is a global leader in the adult webcam community and the relationship confirms Sexpo’s expansion as a strong international brand.

The move has come shortly after Sexpo re-acquired its founder, David Ross, back from a five year hiatus. Ross has a view to push the high-profile brand across the shores, with the first UK event scheduled for London in November this year. In South Africa, Sexpo has been operating with great success under license since 2007.
“I’m proud to align Sexpo, a great established Australian brand, with a technology leader in the global adult community sector. The relationship between our two strong, innovative companies speaks volumes about Australia’s presence and importance in the Health, Sexuality and Lifestyle market” says Ross.

Launched in 2004, MyFreeCams.com is the largest webcam network with over 200000 registered models and over 20mil members. Most recently, MyFreeCams.com won the AVN award for best live chat website. A spokesperson for MyFreeCams.com said that the synergy of the two established brands was perfect, and they hoped that the partnership would broaden their outreach.

Sexpo enjoys a very loyal customer base and the brand itself is a long-standing beloved one in Australia. Ross’s return as Operations Manager has brought a fresh approach to the show, invigorating the format and looking to expand audiences.

The next Sexpo will be held on Thursday 20 August to Sunday 23 August at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. More than 35,000 happy people are expected to attend.

Background Information about Sexpo:
In spite of its catchy name, Sexpo is not just an exhibition about sex…it is about health, sexuality and adult lifestyles.
Exhibitor stands include (but are not limited to) aviation, wine tasting, marine sports, electronic home entertainment systems, holiday resorts, spa pools, hair and make-up artists, physical fitness equipment, chiropractors, photographers and more. And, of course, the event still promotes the kind of products and services that one would expect to find at an exhibition called Sexpo!
Apart from the exhibitor stands, there is a stage with rock concert lighting and audio which is the backdrop for a variety of entertaining performances. Popular international celebrities and stage acts include the world famous ‘penile artist’ PRICASSO (who uses his penis as a brush to paint surprisingly good portraits – really!), as well as numerous local and international adult stars. There will also be hilarious crowd participation shows, fashion parades, pole-dancing classes and free giveaways.
Since its debut in 1996, Sexpo has attracted over two million visitors.
Ross says “I conceived and founded Sexpo in Australia in 1996 as a forum to allow men, women and couples to experience all the adult industry has to offer, in a safe and friendly environment. In 2006 the first international licensing agreement was signed and the inaugural South African event held in 2007. An instant success, these events produced several million Australian dollars of income over 3 years before being on-sold by the South African licensee for more than AU$2,000,000 in 2010. It continues to expand under the new licensee.”

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.

Air Sex, Srtrip Poker and Shadow Theatre

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Sexpo, the world’s largest Health Sexuality and Lifestyle show, has just revealed its risqué and provocative Perth program, including Australia’s first ever Air Sex World Championship heat. Sexpo has its doors wide open from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 June, 2015 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

What is Air Sex? It’s a bit like air guitar; only the contestant isn’t imagining they’re in Metallica. They’re imagining they’re with you, getting their freak on, to the max. Creator Chris Trew, who looks less porn-star than hipster barista is a comedian and pro-wrestling manager (that pretty much explains everything) will be on hand guiding spectators and “airsexuals” alike through the pelvic storytelling bonanza.

The rules of Air Sex are brief: When you come on stage, you don’t come on stage. There is no public nudity and when you’re on that stage – you’re on that stage alone. Contestants in this lusty battle are judged on creativity, originality and believability. But a massive load of self-deprecation and a big wad of humour seem to be imperative in the mix.

Keep your knickers on, there’s plenty more action in store for Sexpo. The World Famous Amateur Strip competition is returning, as well as the spell bounding Voodoo Lounge, with non-stop lap and pole dancing. There’s also a Shadow Theatre (yes, it is what you think), Strip Poker, the All Male Review Lounge and a good ol fashioned Peep Show to look forward to.

If you prefer to be a part of the action, take a ride on Sexpo’s naughtiest new amusement ride, launching for the first time in WA. The Shafter is a 12 metre long, adult’s only, giant penis-shaped rocket that’s set to give you a ride of a lifetime.

Sexpo’s reputation for bringing the biggest International Pornstars and celebrity guests doesn’t disappoint this year. James Tindale and Sophie Kasaei, stars of the hit MTV show Geordie Shore willbe greeting fans and divulging what actually went on when the cameras powered down. There’s also the world’s most recognisable female adult star, Penthouse Pet Tori Black and blonde beauty Tasha Reign signing autographs and meeting fans.

At Sexpo you’ll find hundreds of exhibitors, and there’s something for everyone. If you are looking for that fun, different or special gift for a friend or loved one, you’ll find it at Sexpo. As well as stage shows and entertainment, educational seminars and amusement rides, Sexpo offers a large retail area where you can explore and shop until your heart’s content.

Geordie Shore Stars Set for a Steamy Sexpo in Perth

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Sexpo, the world’s largest Health Sexuality and Lifestyle show, will bring their fun, flavourful and yes… sexy event to Perth from Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 June, 2015. And they’re excited to reveal that they’ll be bringing along two very special guests all the way from Geordie Shore…

Two of the series’ most popular past cast members, James Tindale and Sophie Kasaei, are set to liven up Sexpo, giving fans a chance to meet, greet, grab a photo and perhaps even find out what really went on behind the scenes of the popular TV series!

Fans of the show will know Tindale and Kasaei are no strangers to all things under the covers. From tashing on to nights out on the prowl, they’ll be ready to add plenty of spice to the Sexpo party – muscular physiques and all.

But that’s only the tip of the… ahem…. shaft. Sexpo will be bringing a brand new, explicit and raunchy attraction to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Shafter, a naughty new amusement ride launched for the first time in WA is a 12 metre long, adults only, giant penis-shaped rocket. Jump in for the most exciting ride of your life…

And James and Sophie won’t be your only eye candy at the event, with Sexpo’s world famous array of international porn stars flying in just for the occasion. The beautiful Tori Black, who many would argue is the world’s most recognizable female adult star, as well as Tasha Reign, have both been among the first of the adult industry’s hottest talent to be announced for the event. And many, many more names are still to… come.

Sexpo – the HealthSexuality and Lifestyle Exhibition – is the world’s largest adult show, designed to provide a fun and vibrant atmosphere for open minded adults. Sexpo is not just about sex, it is about sexuality and adult lifestyles.

Angela White Interview

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

001-angela-white

It’s Sexpo time again! As well as all the stands and meet-and-greets with the likes of White, James Deen, Stoya and Phoenix Marie, entertainment includes Boylesque, Australia’s ‘naughtiest hypnotist’ Mark Anthony and Puppetry of the Penis, plus you can attend the Red Hot Pie workshops and sign up for the much-loved Amateur Strip Tease – for both sexes. For us, the most interesting person to talk to was Australian porn star Angela White, who runs her own production company, graduated with First Class Honours in Gender Studies from Melbourne Uni, and has run for the Australian Sex Party.

Angela, you’ve chosen not to have a ‘porn star name’. Why is that?
I use my birth name for political reasons. I’m proud of what I do and don’t want to hide behind an alias.

What’s your favourite kind of porn to make? And watch? Are you interested in breaking any records or achieving something completely new? 
My favourite kind of porn to watch and to make is one in which the performers have a genuine connection and chemistry. I’m not really interested in breaking records; I’m more concerned about authenticity, pushing my personal sexual boundaries and growing as a person.

What side of the industry leaves you cold?
It’s the stigma I face outside of the industry that leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Sex workers in general have a hard time securing loans, maintaining custody of their children and gaining protection from the law. It’s hard knowing that the same person who rejected your rental application because of your profession will jerk off to your image the next day; the hypocrisy is frustrating on a personal and a political level. But I guess I can take solace in the fact that conservatives are some of my best customers.

What’s your own motivation for performing in porn?


I was always denigrated for my sexuality in my younger years. My bisexuality was always seen as a problem. I was labelled a slut and a lesbian, the first slur criticising me for fucking men too much, and the second for not fucking them enough. When I discovered porn, I saw a space in which sexuality was celebrated, where having multiple partners of every gender was encouraged. I saw porn as a space where I could express and explore my sexuality in a safe environment with other open minded, sex-positive people. Plus, it gave me the opportunity to engage my exhibitionist streak.

Do you think part of the impetus for porn stars is to prove their athleticism and take pride in how much their bodies can take? 
Performing in porn can be incredibly demanding on the body and does require a certain amount of athleticism. I’ve had my fair share of porno injuries from a subluxed jaw to a hip labral tear. Personally, it’s not so much about proving what my body can take. It’s about losing myself in the moment. And sometimes that means that I forget the limits of my body.

Have you had anything weird happen at an expo before?
No. I hate the word “weird”. I feel that it only promotes the myth that something “normal” exists when it comes to sexuality. There’s also a misconception about porn viewers: that they are unattractive, socially inadequate men who could never get a real date. In reality, everybody watches porn. Fans who come to meet me at an event like Sexpo are everyday women and men who generally like sex.

How much time do you spend filming in the States – is it possible to have a porn film career in Australia alone?
When I first started filming in 2003 it was impossible to have a career filming in Australia alone. Things are changing now. The Internet makes every industry global no matter where it’s based. There are also more Australian production companies than ever before. At this stage, I don’t know any models who are able to shoot solely in Australia without supplementing their income. But that could change. I still do all of my hardcore shooting overseas to avoid the legal headaches associated with shooting in Australia.

Do you play up or play down your Australian accent?
Neither. I just be myself. The Aussie accent is definitely a selling point for my US and Japanese fans. But since it’s there naturally I don’t need to do anything to reap the benefits.

What are the strangest requests you’ve had in webcam shows?
Nothing is strange to me. But I do get some interesting requests sometimes. They are often my favourite cam shows because I get to try new things and sometimes discover a new sexual fantasy for my own wank bank. Some interesting things I’ve done include smearing strawberry jam between my toes, giving myself CPR, singing the Lion King soundtrack and encouraging a guy to hit it testicles with a tennis racquet… he came everywhere!

How do you deal with the sleazier people in the business? Did you have to try a few tactics till you find one that works?
This is another misconception about the adult industry that I keep encountering. The adult industry is run like any other industry should be: in a professional and appropriate manner. Anyone who doesn’t conduct themselves with professionalism gets weeded out pretty quickly.

You’ve been in four episodes of Pizza… is mainstream acting something you’re still pursuing?

Sex is my passion and you don’t get to have much sex on mainstream sets. If an amazing mainstream offer was presented to me I’d consider it. But “crossing-over” isn’t my focus.

After studying at the Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris you ran as a political candidate for the Australian Sex Party in the 2010 Victorian state election, in which you campaigned for the rights of sex workers. How was that experience?

I loved representing the Australian Sex Party. They are the only party that truly care about the rights of sex workers. It was a great experience.

For your Honours thesis, you researched the experiences of female performers in the Australian pornography industry. What were your findings? 
The most interesting finding was that performing in porn had transformative potential for a performer’s sexual identity. The intense and unpredictable nature of sexual pleasure and orgasm were capable of challenging their sense of self. For example, two women who entered the industry identifying as heterosexual and lesbian came out of the industry identifying as queer and bi respectively after experiencing sexual pleasures disinvested from their sexual identities. Obviously it’s difficult to discuss all of the complexities in a few sentences but I think this points to the radical potential of pornography. Due to the rigid limits we place on our sexual identities there is a chance that the performers may never have had the opportunity to explore those sexual pleasures outside of pornography.

What are the biggest preconceived notions about porn stars? Drugs, sexual abuse, coercion?
All of the above. People are always trying to theorise why porn stars would want to have sex for a living, as if the answer isn’t obvious … because sex is a fun way to pass the time and pay rent. I have a no drug policy on my set and all scenes are discussed and agreed upon before shooting. Unfortunately, sexual abuse is something that can happen to anyone regardless of whether they dream of becoming a cashier or an astronaut. I’ve worked in mainstream TV, sales and hospitality and haven’t seen a higher percentage of sexual abuse survivors in the adult industry.

There’s a lot of excitement about the crossover appeal of James Deen (who appears in Canyons with Lindsay Lohan)… how did you find working with him?
I’ve shot with James on many occasions. We have great chemistry so shooting with James is a lot of fun. It’s just an added bonus that he has such a lovely appendage that he uses to great effect.

What are you up to with your production company, AGW Entertainment B.V. – and why did you start it?
After shooting for other companies for almost a decade I decided to start my own production company. While I was lucky enough to work with some great companies who gave me quite a bit of free reign, in the end, there were always elements that were out of my control, for example, costuming, location and/or editing. Now I have complete control over every aspect of a shoot, which allows me to create a space where I can explore the depths of my fantasies on my own terms.

Classification system for billboards uneccesary, says industry

No sex please. We’re Queenslanders.

At least that is the impression from the overwhelming majority of submissions to a parliamentary inquiry into sexually explicit outdoor advertising – and whether the state needs a classification system.

“Can we not sit on the train or bus and enjoy some nice scenery instead of having these billboards in your face?” questions Helen Dowling, who suggests people having issues in the bedroom visit their GP.

Julie Robinson wrote to the committee to express her “disgust” over the Rip and Roll campaign, and condom advertisements in general, and shared a recent anecdote about a discussion she had with someone who questioned her concern.

“I said I was aware of the huge rise in STDs but my view is that it is not due to a lack of condom advertising, but rather the fact that too many people are engaging in sexual activity too young and with too many partners. I said there are places to advertise condoms and it’s not in the public spaces,” she said.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie had already raised his concerns over outdoor advertising when Katter Party MP Shane Knuth introduced the Classification of Publications (Billboard Advertising) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill in May.

The inquiry, undertaken by the Health and Community Affairs parliamentary committee aims to investigate whether the legislation is needed.

Charmaine Moldrich, the CEO of the Outdoor Media Association, says no.

“It is a difference between people’s perceptions and reality,” Ms Moldrich said, adding that if Queensland went ahead with the classification system, it would be the only state in Australia to do so.

A similar push for a ratings system was rejected at a federal level in 2011.

“In the last three years, we have put in some very stringent measures with our membership to really reduce the number of sexually explicit advertising,” Ms Moldrich said.

Ms Moldrich said the majority of advertisements that people cite when complaining about outdoor advertising – including Sexpo and those for sex shops – would not run in 2013.

“In 2010 we ran 30,000 campaigns across Australia. Out of those, eight campaigns breached [Advertising Standards Bureau rules] – in the area of sexuality and nudity.

“So 99.98 per cent were fine, but that 0.2 per cent was creating a lot of tension for the industry and advertisers in the community, because those eight ads were not seen in relation to the other 29,992 campaigns out there. They were only seen in relationship to each other.”

Ms Moldrich said while what was considered sexually explicit could be a “subjective area”, the outdoor advertising peak body had fallen into the assumption trap and believed their members understood where the lines were.

An educational program was put in place, along with a content review program and a concept advisory service was established for members who still had queries.

“In 2012 we breached three times, but none of those were in the area of sexuality and nudity,” Ms Moldrich said.

“This year we haven’t breached once.”

Ms Moldrich pointed to the difference in the Sexpo ads between 2010 and 2013 as an example of how the industry had learnt and moved forward.

Dr David Waller, a senior lecturer in Marketing at University of Technology Sydney’s Business School, said outdoor advertising rated third for complaints to the Advertising Standards Bureau, behind television and the internet.

But he said the accessibility of the advertisements often raised hackles as well as questions.

“A long running issue about outdoor advertising has been questions on measuring its effectiveness,” he said.

“How effective is a billboard located next to a highway? It is difficult to judge. The same with a billboard’s effect on children. While this can be hard to quantify, having sexual images so available can be seen as adding to the desensitisation of sexual images and being another touch point that shows the sexualisation of women.”

The committee is due to report back to parliament with the findings of its inquiry by early next year.
