AVN & AEE 2017-Strip Club Journals

AEE & AVN Season 2017

@ZifiStripClub

The AVN season is a season of freedom. As an industry we celebrate the best of the best and all the sacrifices that come along with being one of the best of the best. Resilient people make up the adult industry. Freedom mixed with resilience leads to many different places, but success and the freedoms of the adult industry bring us all together.

Avn season is always predictably unpredictable. Every year I try to plan and prepare for AEE and the AVN Awards in Las Vegas, but I also take into consideration that magical moments cannot always be planned. With a handful of large convention rooms filled with the madness of adult actors, webcam models, fans, press, sex toys, and excitement:  I never know what will catch my eye and/or attention.

This year at the 2017 AEE and AVN awards I realized resilience is another key factor in being a successful part of the adult industry. People love to hate sex workers and adult entertainers. Therefore, it only makes dollars and sense that adult industry workers must be able to go against the odds tenaciously and persevere with resilience because we are all bound to publicly make mistakes.

“Meeting new faces. Catching up with old friends going places. Solidifying bonds in a networking atmosphere. Establishing professional relationships with the backdrop of a city that loves to party till the sunlight blinds your dehydrated self as the night blends into day like a perfectly mixed cocktail served chilled & stirred to a rhythm we all understand & fully embrace.” ~Enrique Arellano, Adventures of the Mayor(@EAFLOWS)

AE Expo 2017 was packed full of adult stars and it seems to get larger with every year. The crowds gawk at various things and people while I observe, mingle, and network. I remember my first AE Expo and just how huge and overwhelming it felt. With time the exponential impact of the adult entertainment expo on a career in the adult industry becomes less stressful, but in reality anything can happen for anyone who fully turns on their shine during this event.

“It is like a fun industry family reunion.” ~Joe Evans(@NoRealValue)

The 2017 AEE was filled with extremely business minded adult stars who were hustling and bustling to make it to all the different booths and to network and meet as many fans as possible. When you are your business, literally, there is a certain amount of drive required. No one person can or will hand you success. It is something everyone must manifest for themselves in the adult industry.

“I had so much fun this year! I didn’t keep a schedule, did a random expo for once! It was amazing and I even walked away with a contract! I focused more on meeting companies and networking than meeting with fans this year. Sorry fans, I have to grow the Shawna Lenee Show brand! It was well worth it but will definitely have to make up lost time with fans next year!!” ~Shawna Lenee(@ShawnaLeneeShow)

Interviewing adult actors on the red carpet at AVN 2017 felt like porn star speed dating. Another challenge I never thought I would encounter. However, after days of walking around the AE expo it was a welcoming test. So many stars, so many names, so many questions, so little time…

On the AVN red carpet Eva Lovia(@FallinLovia) and I had a moment to chit chat about her career and how she is now where she wants to be, but she made a lot of mistakes along her way to success. However, with hard work and trial and error she has made it! Eva Lovia has a career that continues to blossom. She retains tenacity with an always welcoming smile. Keep up with Eva Lovia on her favorite social media:  Instagram @LoviaLongTime.

Overall AEE and AVN 2017 were an amazing season. Surrounding yourself with others who work in the adult industry is a freedom we look forward to all year long. A break from the stigmas of mainstream society, a chance to breathe much like when taking off stilettos after a long night of work. The relief of knowing you are not alone literally surrounds every adult worker who attends the AE Expo and AVN awards. Belonging is a priceless feeling we all seek.

The irony of the AEE and AVNs is often you learn more about yourself than the people you actually go to interview and meet.

Special thank you to Chris Meggs for contributing select photos! (@Meggs_Chris)

“AVN is always a blast! The more you attend the more like a yearly reunion it becomes which is really part of the overall experience, especially not being based on the west coast! It always renews the fire and motivation for the year ahead to see all the new tech and concepts coming out from all areas of the industry. Is it January 2018 yet?” ~Demon Seed Radio(@Demonseed69)

AEE 2017-Part One

@ZiFiStripClub

Avn season is always predictably unpredictable. Every year I try to plan and prepare for AEE and the AVN Awards in Las Vegas, but I also take into consideration that magical moments cannot always be planned. With a handful of large convention rooms filled with the madness of adult actors, webcam models, fans, press, sex toys, and excitement:  I never know what will catch my eye and/or attention.
The week before AVN 2017, I was hectically finishing my second book, “A Decade On A Pole”. My book editor, Robert Bryant(@DemonSeed69) and I spent many late nights and early mornings fine tuning the first year of my syndicated magazine column:  “Strip Club Journals Unbound”. These columns along with advice and tools on surviving the adult industry make up “A Decade On A Pole” which is now available on iTunes and Amazon.

AEE 2017 Journals
Monday Jan 16th, 2017
This is a very important week for my career. It will set the tone for the rest of the year. With two books out on Amazon and iTunes my career as an author and journalist will grow exponentially in the next year. A career defining moment of my life will unravel throughout 2017. I hope, pray, and manifest the best possible outcome. Failing and falling on my face is a possibility, but if I do not try I will always wonder what if! Feeling alive and evolving makes me nauseous.

Tonight was the opening cocktail party for AEE 2017. It was great to relax with the people we work with nationwide actually in the flesh. Seeing most of your adult industry friends in one place is nearly unheard of, but it does happen this magical week in the Las Vegas desert. Joe Evans(@norealvalue), Enrique Arellano(@eaflows), Robert Bryant(@demonseed69), Kevin Young, DJ Lee(Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Club, Las Vegas), and I all had the opportunity to grab a meal after the opening cocktail party. This was the most wholesome adult industry fun I have had in a long time. We all have chosen the adult industry as a career in many different niches and regions with success. My hope and faith are restored to new heights after being surrounded by like-minded people.

When you realize you dreamed too big too quickly…
Today I had to give up on my goal of an AEE 2017 book. However, I realized all the networking I have done along the way is starting to payoff. Going out of my comfort zone this year and going to the AVN nomination party in Hollywood to network with even more adult industry people was a great career move. Personal appearances and independent writing assignments will be more beneficial to my career within the next year than anything else. After staying home to write books last year it is time to get out of my house!

Friday Jan 20th, 2017
I am tired and beyond sleep deprived. In the past two nights I have slept maybe 10 hours total. I love AEE & AVN, but being attractive, business savvy, and a woman journalist in the adult industry is at least two full time jobs. Plus, meeting so many amazing people makes it difficult to call it an early night. Next AEE is the only time we are guaranteed to see these people so we make the best of it all.

Before Expo & Red Carpet

Here I sit at Mr Lucky’s at the hard rock hotel in Las Vegas eating eggs with my big hair and war paint. Tonight will be my second AVN red carpet event this season. My war paint may be on, but the butterflies on my insides just won’t stop. Knowing anything can happen is an amazing feeling when embraced. I can only imagine what the numerous nominees feel like.

After Expo & Red Carpet

My first AVN Red Carpet was in Hollywood at the Avn Nomination Party and tonight I finished the Avn season with the Red Carpet in Las Vegas. What an amazing experience! Pushing out of my comfort zone and being on camera is a challenge. Although I do see myself improving, it is still not my favorite or natural niche in journalism. However, it is always necessary to evolve in your career. Evolution is not comfortable otherwise everyone would do it!

The irony of the AEE and AVNs is often you learn more about yourself than the people you actually go to interview and meet.

Reagan Reilly-Feature Dancer & Cover Girl

@ZiFiStripClub

The beauty of living in Las Vegas full-time is fancy people surround me. After communicating with Reagan Reilly for a couple of months, it was apparent she is the type of person who adds to your life. Her large heart and ability to own up to the truths of her past are amazingly refreshing. Her accomplishments are great, but that has not slowed her down. Not only does she feature dance, blog for a website and house dance here in Las Vegas at the Palomino club, she will be on the cover of the Panda(@PandaMembers1) Calendar. Reagan Reilly is an inspiration to many going through the strip club industry with a good head on her shoulders and sobriety(which puts her at a large advantage).

Keep up with Reagan Rilley on Twitter and check out her website. If you are in Las Vegas do not be shy, go see her at the Palomino Club.

“Keep an open mind! If you don’t try new things you will never know who you really are. If you don’t like it, don’t do it again. But not trying, simply closes a door that could have led to success.” ~Sully Savage

Sully Savage is still rather new to the adult industry and yet at the same time wise beyond her career. Originally from Virginia, Sully Savage moved to Florida two years ago as a club promoter. The networking opportunities which presented themselves allowed her to dream big and manifest. She decided to get her foot in the door of modeling and the connections she made along the way got her to the AVN expo 2016, where I met her in person. This is where her adult career really started. Funny how all it takes is one group picture to have a ripple effect in an adult industry career.

Her ability to retain and value her individuality makes Sully Savage an exception to the rule within the adult industry. When I saw a beautiful girl who did not quite look like a stripper or porn star at the AVN expo I could not help but be intrigued. Sully Savage’s positive energy is something many people could learn from.

“Never close your eyes to anyone that takes an interest in you. People have a way of getting a big head and start to believe they do not need to learn from anyone else. You never know what someone can bring to the table.” ~Sully Savage

You can find Sully Savage at www.Chaturbate.com/SullySavage to interact with her on cam! She is a true and new gem in the adult industry. Connect with her on Twitter and/or Chaturbate to find out just how much she shines in her everyday interactions.

“Last but not least, do not give up. Very few people are naturally good at this. It takes work, it takes practice, it takes messing up and finding the right way after many attempts. Nothing you do is wrong though. You never know, you may just stumble on someone’s deep dark fetish.” ~Sully Savage(@SullySavage)
