Bring a mobile charger. Sure, porn stars will be everywhere, but in addition to all the spandex-clad skin roaming the Hard Rock Hotel halls, the trade show also features male and female revue performances, a BDSM playground to explore and blush-inducing adult novelties—all screaming for an Instagram photo shoot. So be charged-up and ready!

Don’t forget that hand sanitizer. Get your head out of the gutter—thousands of people will be fondling those blush-worthy adult novelties!

Prioritize. You don’t want to blow your wad (um, figuratively) on porn-star photo-ops all day, right? This is the planet’s biggest porn convention, so don’t forget to squeeze in a star-studded seminar (some fun picks: “How to Negotiate a Threesome” and “Whip Me, Beat Me, Call Me Bad Names”) and some time to explore the trade-show floor for some (fetishistic) fun—and freebies! You know you’ve been dying for some homemade, organic sex butter, don’t be shy …

What to check at the door: Any sense of shame. It’s a PORN CONVENTION! Did we need to remind you? If you think you’re above posing for pics with adult-film stars or should your horse be too high to toy with the, um, toys, well … stay home!
