"I came from Singapore especially for this event"
To bring together the fashion and culture of sex, the first ever Sexhibition 2015 was held at Event City in Manchester during 21-23 August 2015.
Featuring a mix of incredible fashion shows to tease you with the latest in sexual fashion to meet and greets with many of the UK’s adult industry stars, this was a show designed to uncover lots.
Plus, many stalls were present to give visitors an insight into the latest must-have sexual accessories and items to spice up your sex life.
With not seeing so many British Asians at the event, DESIblitz brings you highlights of Saturday’s activities at this very unique and interesting show.
A key highlight was the appearance of the gorgeous Sukki Singapora who attended the event to appear on the main stage for fashion shows and to do a special burlesque performance.
“I came from Singapore especially for this event and will be going back straight after,” said Sukki as she spoke to us about her being featured at the show.
The event was split into three key areas with each offering its own take on sex and what it can mean to individuals with different tastes or needs.
With the main stage hosted by Alix Fox, who is an award-winning journalist, presenter and sex educator, there were plenty of laughs and interesting sexual facts to enjoy.
This was the most active aspect of the event. The main stage was busy throughout the day showcasing lots of different fashion related to sexual culture.
Without lingerie sex can be a little like having an egg without salt! The fashion in lingerie and corsetry was meant to titillate, which it definitely did.
Giving visitors a wonderful insight into what lingerie and corsets are available to make sex a fashionable extravaganza for couples.
Models wore lingerie and corsetry from an array of suppliers including, Battie Clothing & Rose Von Sweet Corsetry, Santonesse & Beautiful Taboo, Whyte Phantom & Feverish Imaginings and Lyndsey Clark & Kitty O’Hara Corsetry.
Sukki Singapora came out looking amazing in a magenta corset embroidered with an ethnic styled design by Kiku Boutique of Manchester.
It cinched perfectly at her waist and gave her delightful figure attire which simply oozed with classy sex appeal.
The touch and feel of latex is definitely enhances the sensual experience and the fashion shows sure treated the audience to some incredible designs in this material of sexual fantasy and style.
Designers featured included Yummy Gummy Latex, Latex 101, Dirty Pretty Latex, Lady Allura’s Latex and Black Sheep Latex.
Sukki Singapora was elegantly featured on stage wearing a very sexy black latex dress courtesy of Yummy Gummy Latex, as part of their fashion show.
This was the final third of the Sexhibition fashion shows.
Exhibiting some very interesting and fetish led designs with costumes from Ethical Kink , Fetasia, Dayne Henderson and Bondinage.
In between the fashion shows featured BDSM talks from Alix Fox, a comical presentation by Mark Dolan on “How Not To Do Sex” and an appearance by Edward Heller the Erotic Hypnotist.
There was a mind-blowing performance by the super-toned Kerry from Cabaret of Sin on the main stage which oozed sensuality, agility and sexual strength.
The evening show was compered by Miss Polly Rae.
This was a very special area at the event featuring some of UK’s well known adult stars.
Including names like Rebecca More, Ben Dover, Holly McGuire, Princess Levi, Zara Du Rose, Samantha Bentley, Leigh Derby, Harmony Reigns, Yuffie, Kyla Cole, Ella Hughes, Lucia Love, Sapphire Blue and Daisy Rock.
Many were selling memorabilia of their own and taking snaps with fans.
Some were cheekily baring a lot more skin, especially for the fans in the XXX Area.
In addition, present in the area were Adult Creative, Amateur Community, Adult Awards and Pay XXX.
The XtremePlaypen models had shows going on throughout the event. Including Pole Dancing, Dominatrix and Live shows by performers such as Phelix Maison, Linzie Belle, Rebecca Crow and Shaila and Francesco.
The third key area of secluded interest was the ‘Red Room’. A special area cordoned off which had furniture and contraptions you would see in a movie about BDSM and associated sexual adventures.
The room staged Kinbaku Workshops during the day and was then transformed into a BDSM play area at night for visitors.
Kinbaku is the Japanese term for Rope bondage. Unlike the Western bondage, is not a practice, but a real discipline, which involves what the Japanese call ‘kokoro’ meaning “the heart, spirit and mind”. Something which cannot be acquired through the mere knowledge of techniques and knots.
It was evident from the items on display in the room that pain thresholds could definitely be maximised for those looking for such guilty pleasures.
Apart from these three areas, the venue was a hub for activity related to stalls selling specialist lingerie, corsetry, latex clothing, pvc garments, professional videos services, electrostimulation, different kinds sex toys, sex furniture and lots more.
The presence of many sex pin-ups and models such as Masuimi Max, Bianca Beauchamp, Morgana, Cervena Fox, Shelly D’inferno,Kitty, Miss Katt, Latex Lucy, Liquorice Black, Anna Phylactic, Frenchie L’amour, Aliese Watts and many more all added to the amazing experience of this industry.
Creative Director and Owner of the Sexhibition, Cheryl Smith said:
“We were absolutely bowled over by the amount of ‘Sexhibitionists’ who joined us at our inaugural event!”
She added: “The shows, performers, models, exhibitors, the incredible atmosphere were all amazing! We can’t wait to do it all over again!”
The Sexhbition 2015 was a great success and gave visitors a great insight to the celebration of the culture of sex, especially related to the UK and its homegrown talent.
Now we have to wait for the next one but surely there is a lot of sexual fun to be had before then!
