MWA: Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo, Lupe Fuentes
Bonjour mon amis! Comment ca va? Myles Shaffer here. This column will be about an event that is great fun and is overrun by lots of beautiful women! That will hopefully make everybody want to read on and learn! So, without any further ado, let's get the ball rolling!
Exotic Dancer Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo
Sunday, August 22ND, I drove to Las Vegas, Nevada. After arriving, and once I had checked into my hotel and had gotten my boots shined, I went to the Mirage Hotel and Casino to pre-register for the Exotic Dancer Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo.
While I was there, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mike, a gentlemen who has worked security for the Expos for a good number of years now.
I also got to speak with, Ethan Cage and Lexi Lamour, Rachelle Laree, Devon Lee, Nina Mercedez and Don Waitt.
I additionally saw Rio Rivera, but because her hair is much more blonde and much longer this year, I didn't realize who she was until I ran into her again later in the evening.
My editor-in-chief, Steve Nelson, had some unexpected delays that caused him to leave for Las Vegas way behind schedule. Plus he ran into a couple of major traffic delays.
When I realized that he wasn't likely to make it to Las Vegas before the registration closed at 6PM, I sought out Don Waitt and asked him if there was any way possible for me to sign for Steve's press package. Don then graciously took me to the registration desk and told one of the ladies to allow me to sign for Steve's package. For that great act of kindness and concern, Steve and I both thank Don emphatically.
The Expo included the usual seminars and lectures, the Miss Exotic USA semi-finals and finals Sunday and Monday evenings, the official, ''Endless Summer,'' party which was held at the poolside Dolphin Bar at the Mirage Pool Monday evening, the tradeshow Tuesday afternoon and the Exotic Dancer Awards Show Tuesday evening, the Post-Awards Party at the Wasted Space nightclub at the Hard Rock, the tradeshow again on Wednesday afternoon, and the, ''Woodystock,'' feature dancer showcase and party that Wednesday evening.

Congratulations Simone! I will be looking forward to seeing you as a feature dancer and writing a review about you!

Exotic Dancer Awards Show
Tuesday evening, I attended the Exotic Dancer Awards Show.
The awards show was hosted by comedian Ralphie May who did a great job and was extremely funny.
The band for this year's awards show was, ''The Crashers Band.'' These guys have opened for many top name bands and musical artists.
Mary Carey presented the Southeast Club of the Year Award to the Men’s Club (Raleigh, North Carolina) and the Northeast Club of the Year Award to Rick’s Cabaret (New York City, New York).
Next came a performance by Entertainer of the Year Nominee Robyn Foxx.

Next, Entertainer of the Year Nominee Suzie Malone performed one of her Burlesque/magic shows.
Dave Manack, of Exotic Dancer Publications, presented Hall of Fame Awards to industry first amendment attorneys Clyde DeWitt, Luke Lirot, Brad Schaeffer, and John Westin.
Then came a performance by Entertainer of the Year Nominee Christina Aguchi. (After the show, I asked Christina how many sequins had to die in the production of her costume! Yes, it was that elaborate!)
Jade Simone St. Clair presented the ''Feature'' Club of the Year Award to Cheerleaders (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and the Club Favorite Feature Entertainer Award to Shay Lynn.
Lisa Ann presented the Southwest Club of the Year Award to Jaguar’s Gold Club (Phoenix, Arizona) and the Northwest Club of the Year Award the Hustler Club (San Francisco, California).

And last of all, but certainly not least, the Exotic Dancer Entertainer of the Year 2009, Rachelle Laree, crowned Schevelle the Exotic Dancer Entertainer of the Year 2010!
Tradeshow Wednesday, August 25Th
On this day I saw and chatted with most of the people I had seen the day before, plus I saw Avalon, Kayla Kleevage, and Sunny Lane for the first time during the Expo. I met promo model Jewels for the first time during this day. I also met McKenzie Pierce for the first time. (I don't know whether or not my meeting with McKenzie counts for anything. We only said a few words to each other before she ran off. I didn't realize who she was until after the fact.)
Wednesday evening, I attended the ''Woodystock'' Feature Entertainer Showcase Party at Rick’s Cabaret Vegas.
Jade Simone St. Clair and Ronald, ''Ronnie the Limo Driver,'' Mund co-hosted the showcase.
The showcase performers, in order of appearance, were: Tarryn Wylde, Rachel Ryder, Sondra Saxon, Tawnie Monroe, Katsuni, Kristy Morgan, Rachelle Laree, and Shay Lynn.
All of these ladies' costumes were beautiful and quite unique, and their musical selections were very much appropriate for their shows.
When it comes to performing, all eight of these ladies are some of the best feature dancers in the business!
By the way, I have some great news! I have learned that Tali De'Mar, Nina Mercedez, Taya Parker, and Aspen Reign will all four be starring six days a week in a new show at the Sahara Hotel and Casino! I was told by Aspen Reign, and a few other sources, that the show is scheduled to premiere on September 28Th.
This column was getting entirely too long, so I broke out the portion regarding the Miss Exotic USA semi-finals and finals. To read about the contests, see the related article.
Saturday night, August 28Th, I drove up to the Van Nuys Spearmint Rhino to observe Lupe Fuentes' last show and to say hello. I had intended to get there in time to see Lupe's first show of the evening. However, I fell way behind schedule for various reasons I won't go into.
For the one show that I was able to see, Lupe wore a metalic-copper colored bikini. The bikini bra was trimmed with black and had black straps. The bikini bottoms tied together at the hips with black straps so long they almost touched the floor. The long straps were decorated with oblong diamond shaped patches of the same metalic-copper color as the rest of the bikini. Lupe's footwear was a pair of black shoes with spike heels and platform soles of moderate height. The shoes were held to Lupe's feet by ankle straps and straps across her toes.
Lupe performed this show to, ''Gangsta Luv,'' by Snoop Dogg, ''Whatever you Like,'' by Ti, ''Heartless,'' by Kanye West, and, ''I Got a Feeling,'' by the Black Eyed Peas.
In the short time that Lupe has been feature dancing, she has already become a rather good performer, and her interaction with the tip rail patrons has improved quite a bit.
Lupe has silky, very long, brown hair, and brown eyes. While she is only four feet nine inches tall, weighs only seventy-five pounds soaking wet, she measures a beautiful 32C-20-34. (Lupe is one little, super-sexy, dynamo!)
If I remember correctly, Lupe was born in Columbia and grew up in Madrid, Spain. Spain's loss is most definitely America's gain!
Lupe is always smiling, and I have heard that she loves to be nude, and she loves having sex! Now who could ask for more in a woman than that?
In addition to being beautiful and sexy, Lupe is very friendly, and she does enjoy meeting and chatting with her fans.
Speaking of chatting, I was surprised by how much Lupe's command of the English language has improved in just a few months.
Lupe is very entertaining on stage, and she keeps on getting better as time goes by. So, I feel that everybody should go out to a club to see Lupe perform and to meet her in person at their earliest opportunity. I don't believe they would be disappointed.
Pay Lupe a visit at: LittleLupe.com and ILoveLupe.com.
And once again, that will do it for now. We should all return here the next time to continue the discussion of some of the sexiest women in the world. Until then, everybody stay safe, have a great week, and live life as if there were no tomorrow!
Bonsoir et au revoir,
