Inside the Adult Entertainment Expo

There are a few constants in Las Vegas every January.

The tech world will descend upon the town right after New Year's for the International Consumer Electronics Show, or CES. And not too long afterward, the adult entertainment industry will follow.

While CES (and this week's SHOT Show) are closed to the general public, the Adult Entertainment Expo welcomes its fans—and this year, they're more welcome than everas the show has extended its public hours and expects to hit record high attendance levels.

The show floor is a cavalcade of barely-there lingerie, flirtation, sexual capitalism and whips (as 50 Shades mania continues).

In addition to porn stars meeting their fansand jumping off their chairs to hug and pose for pictures with many of themthere's a lot of business being conducted at the show. Toy companies are showing off their new lines to retailers and business negotiations between companies take place in private suites.

While the industry's most ardent fans make a pilgrimage here each year, not everyone is able to make the trip. For those people, here's a taste of a day at the porn show.
