Myles' Weekend Adventures: AVN Adult Entertainment Expo 2014 - Bonjour mon amis! Comment ca va? Myles Shaffer here. This column will be about what may very well be the biggest and greatest adult entertainment industry convention/trade show in the world. So good people, please read on to learn about all the beautiful people who were in attendance and all the great times that were had during an extremely fun four days!
Wednesday, January 15
This was the first day of the 2014 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. (Steve Nelson and I had both driven up to Las Vegas, Nevada, the day before in order to have our press credentials and be ready the moment the doors opened.)
The people I knew or had at least met before that I saw and spoke with on this day were: Anikka Albrite, Julia Ann, James Bartholet, Teal Conrad, Kiki DíAire, Sophie Dee, Nikki Delano, industry photographer Dominic, Ashley Fires, Allie Haze, Madison Ivy, Jesse Jane, the legendary Ron Jeremy, Eric John, Remy Lacroix, Sunny Lane, Kaylani Lei, Kennedy Leigh, Brandi Love, Claudia Marie, Daejha Milan, Missy Monroe, industry photographer Gordon Mui, my Editor-in-Chief Steve Nelson, Ed Powers, Teagan Presley, Laela Pryce, Roxie Rae, Riley Reid, Jessa Rhodes, Missy Rhodes, Ricky Rich, Selena Rose, Bonnie Rotten, Sarah Shevon, Rikki Six, John Stagliano, Natalia Starr, Jada Stevens, and Alexis Texas.
The people I met for the first time on this day were: Eliza Allure, Summer Brielle, Casey Calvert, Leia Down, Veruca James, Abigail Mac, Mia Malcova, Jasmine Mendez, Penny Pax, and Taylor Raz.
About two and a half hours into the day, I saw a woman that looked like Jade Simone St. Clair standing a short distance from me. However, by the time I finished what I was doing a few minutes later, I turned around and the woman had disappeared. Since I never saw her again, I canít be absolutely certain whether it was Jade or just somebody with a very strong resemblance to Jade.

Anybody who has any interest in the adult entertainment industry, and who has never attended any of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expos, should do their dead level best to take in one of the annual events at least once in their lives. I donít see how they could not enjoy the experience!
Okay folks, that's a wrap! Let's all meet back here the next time to see what I have been up to next. Until then, everybody stay safe, have a great week, and live life as if there were no tomorrow!
Bonsoir et au revoir,
