Video: Exxxotica Expo 2010 at the Miami Beach Convention Center

Miami's sexiest convention, Exxxotica, is in town. And it's not just about nipple tassels and vibrators. The event is surprisingly more professional than you'd think. Apparently the industry is really all about business -- including sales of 3D pornography and a device called the Spankie (the Snuggie's far more sexually advanced sibling).

The event is strange. They hand out these plastic packs that look like suckers, but are actually condoms. By the end of the day, you look at the fully clothed with a suspicious eye.

Perhaps the most interesting part is a protester outside -- wearing a black and yellow hat that reads "Trust Jesus" -- who tells visitors they are eternally doomed.

In two upcoming videos, to be posted tomorrow, several stars will describe what turns them off and others will tell jokes.
