After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

  • AVN Adult Entertainment Expo 2010 Coverage (NSFW)
  • AVN Adult Entertainment Expo 2010 Coverage (NSFW)



    In the tech world we have big name magazines like Wired, CPU, and PC Magazine.  Well there are equivalents in the adult world and the biggest adult trade magazine is AVN.  AVN covers all aspects of the adult industry, movies, people, trends etc. much like the big name magazines we read in the tech world.  

    Well as the name suggests the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is sponsored by AVN and works with the big production companies to help run and promote the show.

    Like CES, the AEE attempts to bring suppliers, retailers and industry members together to talk about the latest advances in the industry and to also help promote the business.  The expo itself is divided up into different segments such as a trade show, fan show (open to the public) and seminars, a complete mix of things all related to the adult industry.  It's startling to see how similar AEE is to CES, only the topics of discussion are different.

    Ninjalane was fortunate enough to score another press invite to AEE and being that the adult show as right there we dedicated several hours to AEE to see what it was all about.

    We didn't attend the trade show this year since it was likely not to be any different than simply walking around an adult shop.  The show promoters also moved the trade show upstairs with the fan show giving us the indication that along with CES the AEE/AVN show was considerably smaller as well.
    Fan Show
    The most popular attraction would be the Fan Show; this part of the expo is open to the public provided you pay the entry fee.  Once inside you can actually meet the stars, get their autograph, or have a picture taken. 

    Its really good fun but be warned towards the end of the day it can get quite crowded.  It also seemed that Sunday was actually closed to the public and only open to members of the media.  This really works out well for us since CES is dying down on Sunday and without crazy fans in the way you can actually see some of the exhibits.
    A special note to those who read this!
    The photos and content contained within this article are not even remotely close to what Ninjalane posts on a regular basis.  The (NSFW) in the title is a warning that means everyone who reads this should be of legal age to view adult material and have an open mind to know that if said person does read this they are on their own and responsible for their actions.
