For almost two decades, although supposedly overshadowed by the overrated and overweight onslaught of portentous parties and pompous presentations, THE LEGENDS OF EROTICA event at Showgirl Video (631 South Las Vegas Blvd.) has invariably been the most memory producing attraction during the entire Adult Entertainment Expo ( HYPERLINK “http://www.adultentertainmentexpo.com” http://www.adultentertainmentexpo.com“>http://www.adultentertainmentexpo.com) in Las Vegas.
And on Friday evening January 20, 2012, it is expected that the inductions of seven searing LEGENDS OF EROTICA will once more be the pinnacle of pleasure for all those who attend the historical program.
Chosen to be part of The Class of 2012 are JULIA ANN, FELECIA, KAYLA KLEEVAGE, DYANNA LAUREN, KATIE MORGAN, TONY MONTANA and LEXINGTON STEELE.
What really makes THE LEGENDS OF EROTICA unique and heart felt is that each inductee must choose a special person from their life and/or career to be their inductor.
And the choices of inductors have ranged from adoring lovers to devoted fans to extremely proud offspring to best friends and admiring co-workers, and even to, in a couple of cases, my having to perform the delicate duty, because the inductee had no absolutely idea that he was going to become a “cemented” member of THE LEGENDS OF EROTICA.
The soulful results of this unparralled process inevitably produces tears, both from the onstage participants as well as from the audience of ecstatic fans whose camera clicks and flashes and enthusiastic applause, are the lifeblood of the evening.
For further details, please refer to the flyer on this page.
Appropriately illuminating this page are exclusive LAXPRESS shots of the Class of 2011 inductees that included Lisa Ann, Jill Kelly, and RayVeness. However, as of my deadline, I was still frantically searching for a utilitarian shot of the fourth inductee: the magnetic Mr. Marcus.
