As I pull on another pair of warm, woolen socks to complement my thick knit sweater, I realize that the chill of winter has really set in. But I’ve drank my fill of steeped tea, soup will simply no longer suffice and leaving my undergarments on the radiator while I’m in the shower only keeps me warm for so long. I can think of no better way to truly beat the winter blues than between the sheets with a hot lover.
If you’re looking for a way to really impress that hot lover, bring them to the Everything to do with Sex Show, or as the ever-so-romantic French dub it, the Salon de L’Amour et de la Seduction. It’s North America’s premier adult trade show, taking place from Friday January 18th to Sunday January 20th at Place Bonaventure.
The main draw of the event is the diverse selection of sex toys, or as they’re known around here, “pleasure objects”, as well as luxurious lubricants and lingerie at special prices from vendors such as Lovedreamer.com and Sexy Pleasures Lingerie. Over three quarters of attendees visit the show specifically to see the exhibitors and check out the hottest new trends in all things pleasurable.
Once you’ve picked out the perfect vibrator for you, and selected the silkiest smooth lube to go with it, you can explore ways of realizing your darkest fantasies in the dungeon with MiMi Cherry or catch a titillating live burlesque show from Roxi D’Lite and Pastel Supernovaon the Main Stage. If latex and lace is more up your alley, you’ll love the fashion show from Coquette lingerie and Polymorphe latex, billed as the interconnection of naughty and nice, and the sensual blend of the yin and yang.
Next, you can pick up a few tantalizing tricks that will drive your lover wild in the Steaming Hot Oral Sex workshop with sexologist Dr. Jessica O’Reilly. Or, maybe you’d rather hear advice Josey Vogels has for busy couples who want to turn up the heat in their relationship and bring desire and lust back into the bedroom.
Finally, round out your experience by visiting the Erotic Art stage for some live body painting – as a spectator or as a participant – and the sexy fitness zone for an Alternative Fitness Demonstration by Canadian pioneer of pole dancing Maiko Starr, flaunting her flexibility and demonstrating feats of flexibility with a sensual twist.
This year, organizers have added a Celebrity Star Area, featuring appearances by porn stars Tera Patrick (@TERA1PATRICK) and Charmaine Starr (@CharmaneStar), who will also be serving as Twitter ambassadors for the weekend alongside Mina Stefan (@MinaStefan), Playboy’s reigning sexiest girl on Twitter.
Complete Stage, Dungeon and Workshop schedules as well as tickets for either day are available at the convention’s website .
