Exxxotica is a weekend adult event that travels to three cities around the United States — besides Chicago, it will go to Columbus, Ohio in August; and Edison, New Jersey in November. The event — which came to the Convention Center July 8 to 10 — offers vendors of adult products a chance to appeal directly to consumers, and gives fans of adult entertainment a chance to meet their favorite porn stars in person.
