Erotica LA 2009: Tips for Fans
By My Buddy Powder from his site Life In The XXX Industry
NOTE: I post this for every AVN and Erotica LA. If you are a fan planning to attend a adult convention, then this is the blog entry for you.
With the Erotica LA convention coming up next weekend, I thought I’d take a moment to give some tips and suggestions to the fans about attending the convention when meeting their favorite porn star.
a. Shower: Take one. Soap, water and shampoo is your friend.
b. Wear Deodorant: The number one complaint I heard from women in porn is the body odor that some fans have when they come to meet their favorite porn stars.
c. Shave your face: None of the girls enjoy having your sandpaper five o’clock shadow grinding against their face when you get a picture taken with them.
d: Cologne: The ladies enjoy a nice fragrance but don’t dump a bucket of it over yourself. A little goes a long way.
e: Brush your teeth: No one wants to smell your bad breath. Especially if you are a “close” talker.
a. Patience: Wait your turn in line. No need to push, shove and to try to jam your camera in a porn star’s face, down their shirt or up their skirt. The ladies are there to meet and greet every one of the fans, not just you.
b. Don’t get grabby: When taking a picture with a porn star, keep your arms and hands around her waist. If she wants you to grab her breast or ass for a picture, let her put your hand there. Once the picture is taken, remove your hands.
c. No Loitering: The porn stars are there to meet their fans and may not have time to sit and chat with you. Walk up, say hello, get your picture, and move on.
d. Eye Contact: Women in porn do not have eyes on their chest or ass. Look them in the eyes when you talk to them. They will appreciate it.
e: No declarations of love: Don’t walk up to a porn star and ask them out on a date, tell them that you are madly in love with them or ask them to marry you. Security will be called.
f. Don’t pretend you don’t understand English: When a porn star tells you not to touch or doesn’t want you to stick your cell phone camera up the back of her dress, don’t suddenly look at her blankly like you don’t understand her. It just makes you look like an idiot.
a. If you sweat a lot, drink a lot of water to keep yourself cool and keep a small stick of deodorant with you. You can pick up mini sized deodorant from a local Rite-Aid, Ralphs or Save-On for $2. Keep it in your pocket or bag.
b. Check your breath through out the day. Bring gum or mints with you. Again, No one wants to smell you had for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Last thing you want to do is make your favorite porn personality faint due to your onion and liver flavored breath.
This is a chance to meet your fantasy girl. Enjoy the opportunity and the convention. Hope these tips help and if anyone wishes to add to the list, feel free to leave a comment.
