Background Information about SEXPO®
In spite of its catchy name, SEXPO® is not just an exhibition about sex... it is about
health, sexuality and adult lifestyles.
Exhibitor stands include (but are not limited to) aviation, wine tasting, marine sports,
electronic home entertainment systems, holiday resorts, spa pools, hair and make-up
artists, physical fitness equipment, chiropractors, photographers and more. And, of
course, the event still promotes the kind of products and services that one would expect
to find at an exhibition called SEXPO®.
Apart from the exhibitor stands, there is a stage with rock concert lighting and audio
which is the backdrop for a variety of entertaining performances. Popular international
celebrities and stage acts include the world famous ‘penile artist’ Pricasso (who uses his
penis as a brush to paint surprisingly good portraits – really!), as well as numerous local
nd international adult stars. There will also be hilarious crowd participation shows,
fashion parades, pole-dancing classes and free giveaways.
Since its debut in 1996, SEXPO® has attracted nearly three million visitors.
SEXPO® was founded in Australia in 1996 originally as a forum to allow women and
couples to experience all the adult industry has to offer, in a safe and friendly
environment. In 2006 the first international licensing agreement was signed and the
inaugural South African event held in 2007.
An instant success, these events produced several million Australian dollars of income
over 3 years before being on-sold by the South African licensee for more than
AU$2,000,000 in 2010. It continues to expand under the new licensee.
SEXPO® was exported to London in 2015 to rave reviews.
We specifically invite people who have never been to SEXPO®, thinking it is just a big
“sex show”, to come along and be pleasantly surprised by the fun and relaxed
