Porn industry feeling pain as expo hits Vegas - Las Vegas Sun: “The economic downturn has many companies looking for ways to survive, and those in the adult-entertainment industry are also finding it’s not always easy to shake a recession.
Amid tough times, the industry’s largest convention, the Adult Video Network’s Adult Entertainment Expo, hits Las Vegas today with steady fan attendance and a host of challenges on the exhibit floor.
AVN’s four-day expo is expected to lure adult stars, about 25,000 visitors and 250-plus exhibitors showcasing the latest in adult novelties, DVDs and technology.

Adult Entertainment Expo spokesman Sean Devlin said despite the tough economic climate, the mood on the eve of the Vegas convention was mostly upbeat.”
