[NSFW] Sights and Sound Bites From AVN 2018

The annual porn convention is perfect for people watching—and eavesdropping

Last month, Las Vegas celebrated the latest and greatest technological advancements. No, we’re not talking about the useless Bluetooth-enabled toilets of CES, but the high-utility sex dolls of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. Held January 24–27 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the annual event brought even more porn stars to Sin City than the usual Los Angeles to Las Vegas weekend commute, along with everyone on the kink and sex work spectrum—especially the cam girls, who dominated the convention floor with their booths (and other things that start with the letter “B”). Naturally, our intrepid reporters were on the scene to take in the sights and ear-hustle on the banter that would be inappropriate anywhere else.

What we saw:

What we overheard:

“I’m looking forward to seeing Luscious Lopez because she looks like my wife.” —An attendee on his way to get autographs

“It was really hot and uncomfortable in that turtle suit.” —An actor during porn parody company Woodrocket’s AVN after party, pointing to the costume he wore during the filming of Ten Inch Mutant Ninja Turtles

“Can I pet your puppy?”
“Yes you may.” —An exchange on the casino floor between hotel guests and AVN attendees (the “puppy” was a man in a fetish dog mask and man thong)

“I’m sick of you and your penis.” —A couple leaving the expo

“There’s something flashing in your bag.”
“It’s just her dildo.” —An exchange on the casino floor

“Do you just bite it like a corn on the cob?”
“What, the penis? You just mutilate it.” —A conversation we don’t want anything to do with, overheard in the elevator lobby

“The Canadian dollar’s really getting stronger.” —Possibly the weirdest thing we heard while we were there
