Los Angeles – The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which will celebrate its 15th year, at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, has created a Fetish Area, known as The Lair, located inside the Fan Fest, which will be open to trade and fans January 17th through January 19th. Fetish exhibitors from around the world will be in attendance, with displays, talent, and demonstrations during show hours.

With a major emphasis on education and interactive experiences, The Lair will bring to life the many aspects of the fetish and BDSM communities. All Attendees who have been curious about the BDSM lifestyle will have the opportunity to meet the biggest names and companies in the world. Within The Lair, those in attendance will be engulfed in a world where interaction, attraction and performances will ignite and explore the plethora of fetish interests that exist. The Lair will also allow companies to sell their BDSM specific accessories, toys and novelties.

The idea behind facilitating the play spaces with Adult Fan Shows is to educate, build both tolerance and respect for unique sexual expressions says Mistress C., Dominatrix, and Event planner. It is my dream to build bridges so we can play safety together. The Lair is a dream come true. I look forward to showing the love that only a Domina can give. Mistress C. is affectionately called the Dungeon Lady because of her extensive involvement in producing the Dungeon Experience.
