My WeekendPosted on Sep 27, 2009 by Goddess Sonya
On Friday I went to the Exxxotica convention to take a look around, see what it's like. I didn't have a good time at first (these events don't exactly cater to my demographic), but I went there with specific goals in mind. My first impression was disappointment at the lack of color representation earlier on. Later, there were some ladies representing like Diamond Jackson and Nyomi Banxxx, but nothing Fetish or BDSM related.
I made my rounds one last time hoping to catch the show that Jezebel's of NYC was about to put on with their Mistress and hoping to meet up with the Asian switch I mentioned previously when I saw a crowd forming near a booth. To my surprise and excitement, my girl crush Heather Hunter was there signing autographs and selling copies of her new book "Insatiable: The Rise of Porn Star" My evening suddenly got better.
It's not everyday you get to meet a living legend: she was the first black woman to become a contract girl for Vivid Entertainment, which was a big deal in an industry where black girls aren't exactly a prized commodity, never mind contracted by the world's elite adult video producer. She's also an AVN Hall of Famer. I found her to be warm and accomodating and she seemed really happy that a woman was interested in purchasing her book. I even took a photo with her!
I never did get to meet the Asian switch as we agreed upon, but in all I don't have many complaints or compliments for the convention. Let's just say I'll be sticking to my industry conventions.
I filmed some new HJ stuff on Saturday with a new guy and I continue to work on my other web projects in my downtime. But today, I'm just going to relax and cozy up with my new book purchase.
