The European Summit is the first adult entertainment event of the year happening next to the beach under the sun. Even though the weather was pretty chilly this year, the sun was there! As always, it all happened in Sitges, which is about 20km away from Barcelona. The motto was “Golden Moments” and according to the organisers this years event had the highest attendance ever.
Several panels and seminars of course only took place inside the event hotel however the patio of the Calipolis hotel was perfect for networking. And the food was interesting too. How about some fresh cut jamon (spanish ham)?
Each year a huge amount of awards are handed out in Las Vegas during the Adult Entertainment Expo. All organized by the AVN Magazine, the “bible” of the porn industry. This years show was hosted by comedian Danielle Stewart and the two porn stars Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol. They all made a great job, unfortunately it took a while until the audience got warm with Danielles porn jokes. Specially Tommy showed his huge range of talents, some of which go far beyond putting a penis into a vagina. He not only has comedy skills, he can also sing. Together with Alexis they performed a well made porn song.
The first dozenish and most important awards were properly presented the Hollywood way, then the rest only quickly mentioned by the off speaker. That way the show was fairly short however ended a bit abruptly without any noticeable closing part. At least the porn industry showed again it is still alive and rocking! Good all happened in the Hard Rock Hotel.
