MANCHESTER – Tickets went on sale today for the first-ever Sexhibition expo, taking place Aug. 22 in Manchester.

Being held at the Event City venue, Sexhibition organizers say the event will be “the ultimate in decadence and debauchery. According to the event’s website, Sexhibition will bring together elements of sex, erotica, the adult industry, burlesque, fetish, the BDSM lifestyle and combine it with live music, DJ sets, burlesque, cabaret, film and performance art in an inclusive and sex-positive environment.

“During the day, our exhibitors will include purveyors of the finest lingerie, corsetry, latex, footwear and clothing – everyone from large high street retailers to independent designers; sex toy suppliers ranging from discreet, intimate ‘self care’ to the more adventurous and mind blowing proportions, Sexhibition’s website said.

“We’ll also have exhibitors specializing in every area of BDSM and fetish, film companies, authors and well known stars from the adult industry.”

The event also will feature entertainment performances, workshops and “gourmet cuisine.”

“Straight, gay, bisexual, pansexual, polyamorous, transexual, singles and couples…everyone is welcome; diversity is positively encouraged,” the event website says. “Sexhibition has been imagined, designed and realized to have a relaxed, exciting and simultaneously inclusive and exclusive atmosphere.”

Sexhibition will kick off with an adult industry-only cocktail party on Aug. 21.

Event organizer Cheryl Smith said, ‘We’re bringing together adult suppliers, manufacturers, film companies, adult stars and those offering adult business services in quite a unique way: Everyone you need to see to help your business grow and prosper will be here! We’re very excited to add a B2B element to this consumer event – all delivered in Sexhibition’s unique, decedent style.”

Tickets for the industry-only cocktail party will be available next month.
