Sexpo to feature live sex shows

2011-04-01 10:16
Johannesburg - Controversial sex convention Sexpo will not only be exhibiting kinky sex toys, but this year South African fans will be able to see live sex shows, reports IOL.

Sexpo visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite porn star as part of a competition where hopefuls will perform all kinds of sexual acts on stage.

A new reality show Porn Stars has enlisted the help of Sexpo fans to find the country's next male and female porn stars.

Porn Stars will travel to Durban in August and to Johannesburg in September, but not to Cape Town.

Porn Stars producer Donovan van Wyngaard says Sexpo visitors will be able to choose the winners of the competition from 100 finalists.

Sexual performance

The winners will receive R5000 each plus a role in a Hustler porn movie, which will be filmed at the end of the year.

Strip club owner and Survivor winner Gigi, Afrikaans writer Yolanda Barnard and Hustler's Adam Gordon are the three judges who chose the 100 finalists.

"Those that managed to make the 120 cut did a fantastic job. The first set of auditions involve us judging the acting skills, while the next set will involve the sexual performance of the individuals," said Van Wyngaard.

There is also talk of the competition being aired on TV, but Van Wyngaard could not confirm which channels are interested.

      I agree Louise - this MUST be a joke..... if not we need to seriously consider what our society is turning into

      Ichabod - 2011-04-01 10:38

      Louise, this is for real. Only in SA would we confuse real stories for April Fool's ones :)

      les_ - 2011-04-01 12:00

      This is no joke I heard about it yesterday

      cerveza - 2011-04-01 13:19

      @Chantelle - are you worried that we are moving away from a sexually supressed society?

      A THEIST - 2011-04-01 14:55


      Francois - 2011-04-02 06:55

      No it is not. The best sex shows in Africa is the Zimbabweans getting one from Old Habits Mugabe, the poor getting one from Zuma in SA, the poor Libyans and Ivorians are the other contenders.

      Redwine - 2011-04-02 09:23

      @Preshgovender69 This is your claim to fame boet!

      shelleytg - 2011-04-02 22:46

      Really is sex such a bad thing? Consenting adults having sex? Consenting adults watching? What is soooo wrong with sex? I find that as a female, pre-martital sex is a must. I can't believe that as a society, sex is so taboo? When you buy a television you research your options? Why not before marriage?

      Quaere Verum - 2011-04-03 14:01

      A Theist do you REALLY believe that morality is a choice? Do you, in other words, hold the position that morality is totally relative to the person?

  • L_Savage - 2011-04-01 10:51

    Sounds suspiciously like an April Fools prank to me.

  • Fedup2day - 2011-04-01 10:58

    this is their annual April fools joke. LOL I can imagine some people are already preparing their pickets!!!

  • Sageville - 2011-04-01 10:59

    I will be performing at the sexpo as one of the live sex acts. I do about 300 x 1 minute shows each day, so please come and support our efforts!

      GT - 2011-04-01 16:42

      sounds like you are doing enough coming for all of us

  • Met Uysh! - 2011-04-01 11:03

    Probabl an April fools joke...but why shouldn't they give live sex shows? Its nothing strange like in Amsterdam you can go watch live sex shows. Why not here?

      schmerz - 2011-04-01 12:37

      Yea, why don't we bring slavery back?

      If they EAT SHIT in Amsterdam will you also do the same ?

  • 50something - 2011-04-01 12:39

    I sincerely hope this is an April fool's joke, otherwise I don't have any hope for this country, or the world for that matter. The moral decay of any society in history preceeded their demise.

      Rammsteen - 2011-04-01 13:02

      Da's why you are 50 something...

      Greg - 2011-04-01 13:15

      Not nice Rammsteen - I'm getting to the 50 mark, and my opinion, each to their own, and if a person don't wanna see people going at it, don't - we won't hold it against them (pun.....), and if we wanna watch - treat us the same.

      gekko - 2011-04-01 15:24

      @50something and Greg.I must say i am 28 and think it is horrible to be watching some sweaty faced bloke humping someone at a expo.So don't feel bad!

      50something - 2011-04-01 15:57

      Rammsteen - yes and I intend becoming 80 something with the same moral views - and you?

      LUFC - 2011-04-01 21:04

      Dont worry lad, his name is "rammsteen"

      ad.arnold - 2011-04-02 00:25

      I find this hilarious, people are murdered,raped and decapitated here, just to name a few signs of moral decay. This guy looses hope for the world when warned of live sex at a sex and porn exhibition. These events have been going on in developed nations like Singapore and Australia for years and yet the demise of their civilisations is yet to result. In fact their low murder or rape rates suggests their morals are intact. Who would have thought these people have been exposed to sexpo, the catalyst for the corrosion of societies morals. Sort it out

      Alfred - 2011-04-02 06:56

      Funny thing about christians and muslims is when they talk about morality its exclusivly about sex not about murder, assult, violence, robbery, theft, stealing, lying, cheating, fraud, etc. Sex is natural, its fun and so long as no coersion or violence is used it has very little to do with morality. Morality is about not harming others. I am sick of how christians and muslims have perverted sex into something dirty, bad and disgusting, something to be ashamed of. Viva the sexual revolution.

      Anon - 2011-04-02 15:13

      Uhmm, Alfred..? We as christians do criticize all those things you mentioned, all the time.... I find it quite funny you brought the religion thing up, because I didn't see anyone mentioning anything till you did. The thing about sex is that it is intended for marriage as a sacred bond between two people committed to each other, and also not intended to be perverted... and having a crowd watch two people going at it is perversion and quite frankly sad, and there is nothing natural, sacred or beautiful about it. Point!! I hope this is an April fools joke, but even so it is tasteless. Another thing I might add is that you atheists like to complain about the demise of society and complain about crime, but you know where it starts? .. at the core...with the morals and principals we are supposed to uphold. Respect for each other, that is were it starts, and if you are not a moral person you cannot possibly respect anyone...!!!

      Dicey - 2011-04-03 11:01

      @ Anon - "The thing about sex is that it is intended for marriage as a sacred bond between two people committed to each other" ... REALLY? So all those living creatures (big & small - as your ritualistic songs say) on the planet that are having sex because that's what they're genetically programmed to do, are all living in sin because they didn't marry first. Guess I better open the first pets wedding venue & church, then we can move onto other mammals, then reptiles, birds, insects, etc.

      Anon - 2011-04-04 00:16

      @Dicey - Really? I can't believe your answer... LOL! Did you consult a 5 year old before coming up with that one? Man is not animal... We have another level of consciousness than they do! We committed the original sin, but I don't expect you to understand these complexities. And another thing, animals will never dream of perverting sex as the human race has done. Maybe they have more respect for each other than we do? While I am on the subject, why don't you go do a bit of reading and enter these URLs into your browser Can you at least see why being blaze about sex and pornography is a bad thing?

  • carinx - 2011-04-01 12:57

    i have no idea why anyone should want to watch anybody else having sex - and why anyone should want to be watched. once again a matter of respect and selfrespect having disappeared into thin air

      Rammsteen - 2011-04-01 13:04

      You 50 something too?

      clifford.pike1 - 2011-04-01 18:16

      75% of all Internet activity is still porn related. There are lots of people who want to watch... and be watched.

      clifford.pike1 - 2011-04-01 18:19

      oops - sorry - 25% is porn related. Wasn't concentrating. Too busy downloading porn.

  • - 2011-04-01 12:59

    WTF..... April fools joke or not!! Are they going to enroll people in for classes in as well. LOL... I mean realy, since when do you need to watch other people having s3x to learn how to have s3x? Or to do it yourself? Or are you that gifted? And imagine to be turned on by watching another woman being ....... by 2-3 men in order to sleep with your own wife. That is just sad.

      Rammsteen - 2011-04-01 13:10

      Oh I can imagine, and no - not in order to sleep with my own wife - but to practice what we have learned! - 2011-04-01 18:56

      @Rammsteen That is why the 2 of you practice between yourselfs... Explore own body with each other. I mean what works for one surely does not work for another???? Use your imagination. It realy works if you give it a go! - 2011-04-01 18:58

      Just imagine what would pleasure you and try that on your partner... Not by apparently taking pointers from something like that? Use your imagination....

Juslaai, this it will be tops, I mean TOPS! My former dekaan there privily abusing himself. Just imagine! Professore en nagraadse teologiestudente: this it are a MUST not to be missed!

Those "morally corrupt" individuals will always be there. As long as they dont affect your life then it's fine...or is it? Suppress them so that they will one day lash out at women and abuse them...

    OK People... For of u that r married or in a commited relationship for more than 10 yrs or so. Sex SOMETIMES gets a bit boring, right. And i'm talking to most of the ladies. And there is nothing wrong with it being a bit boring cause of general life stress and so fourth. Now go with ur husband or wife to your best and most trust worthy friends who u know u can talk and joke about sex with. Have a nice late night meal a few glasses of wine or something, turn off the light, play some good-ass music, and enjoy ur spouse in the dark and u knowing that ur best friends r in the same room as u, doing the same thing, will blow ur mind. It is always a fantacy to most people to do it close to other people where there is a threat of getting caught. This done alot for my sex life with my wife to whome i've been together with for 14 yrs, and she was my first and i hers. Now watching a live sex show together will really get both of you going, and ladies, ur husband is not going home and thinking about that lady he saw on stage, but the situation they were in, with so many people watching and stuff. Sex plays a big part of any relationship, both of u have got to stay interested or one of u will find interest some place else. Keep an open mind and a true heart and play around a bit. It's good fun and does alot in a relationship. I'm not saying u must swing, all i'm saying is, get close friends, talk about having sex in the same room and and take ur relationship to a new level and enjoy.

  • penada - 2011-04-02 09:44

    i for one am not a "moralist" as sucgh and i dont really view this as one, for me me i am merely against the idea because of the risks there involved, i am against it as much as i am against sky diving, bunjee jumping etc...the cons of such activities far outweigh the pros'. i mean even one death from a failed parachute deploy is one too many if that happened for thrills, our society is riddled with hiv, women abuse,k sexual deviances, porn is becoming even more freely available on the net, to some level we all know there is something wrong with porn, it does directly influence our sexual lifestyles and appetites. i do watch porn and i believe i would probably be less kinky if never watched it, to some level porn has changed me. my worryu is our childfren, and hiv

  • Norma Farmer - 2011-04-02 09:57

    How much further will this country sink into sin and imorality? Do you not think that we have more than enough rapes comitted on children and women? Why is it being allowed? These kind of shows will only lead to further sexual lust and perversion, it is shameful and evil to say the least. Please do not allow this to take place. Consider the repercussions.

      quinna - 2011-04-02 10:24


      Dicey - 2011-04-03 11:13

      Actually the reason we have so many sexual crimes in SA is because sex is considered 'wrong', 'dirty' & something that must be kept private ... so when people get urges they can't openly talk about them or find a suitable release ... then eventually they build like a pressure cooker, the obvious end results. Holland is one of the most sexually open societies, & it has the lowest teen pregnancy rates & minimal rape stats.

      Noname - 2011-04-04 07:31

      Thank to people like you we have such a high rate of sexual crime in SA, because of sex being marked as wrong and dirty and taboo. Any civilize country , where sex is not taboo, sex related crime rate is much more lower.

  • quinna - 2011-04-02 10:23

    I just read an article on how an elderly women (83) was raped and murdered by a young man. Now, I do not wonder how this came about. It is because sex is not considered holy and for the in love married couple anymore. The woman's body has become an object to misuse and abuse by men.

  • Paul Charsley - 2011-04-02 12:17

    I really don't understand why everyone is getting upset about it, if it offends you then you don't have to go and see it. There are much bigger issues in the country that are worth getting upset over, like the raping of the constitution and the abolishing of freedom of speech.

Morality and intelligence should go together.. But clearly that is not the case in this forum... Sigh...

  • str8talk - 2011-04-03 06:54

    Interesting Stuff, but Yolanda Barnard was and is not a judge. Van Wyngaard claims to have had over a 1000 registrants and, at the first auditions chose 120 to fo forward to the next round. To be honest, he is using and abusing and lying to the media about numbers. There were no more than ten people who arrived for the filming over a three day period. If he is talking to TV stations about airing the show, what has he actually got to offer them, unless he has lied to them as well about the numbers. Controversy is being created by his constant lying, but he will blame the press for inflating numbers. All you journalists should do some research before running a story as controversial as this one. Put Van Wyngaard of Tongelong Productions to the test, ask for proof and then you will have a juicy story. I hope all those wiahing to align themselves with Tongelong Productions and Van Wyngaard will do their checks and balances before putting their names on the line.

  • Hugh - 2011-04-03 07:16

    Sorry but a show how mundane. All the pretend stuff. better to get the action yourself. Only those who have become bored or are weak minded will be arroused by a sex show. Be creative people and you will not need sex shows.

  • FalseGods - 2011-04-03 12:08

    I always have a good chuckle when people bring up the idea that we are becoming less moral, or we are suffering an acceleration in moral decay. Please do yourself a favour, read some books, gain some knowledge, we have always been like this, absolutely nothing has changed save but the number of bodies in the world. We just get exposed more to it because of modern technology, society is only crumbling because of resource use, we have always indulged in excess.

      Since when do you need to take pointers from other people having s3x to have s3x on your own? Or to get into the groof?? What utter nonsence is this. That is why you need to make it special for you and your partner in that area of the house. Not by watching lousy porn so that you can get a kick off..... What a shame. To use one's imagination in order to satisfy your partner sounds like alot like the better idee. Use it!!!

    Acting skills. pfffft haha

      Hello there - 2011-04-04 15:50

      Actually you'd be surprised how much you have to act. Do you know why they don't just take guys from the street and have them act in these movies ? For one, you have to have COMPLETE control over your johnson, and I'm talking about inflating and deflating it on command and within 10 seconds of a director telling you to do it. The money shot is called by the director and not by you or the actress, and that means you have to stop your motion in mid stroke before you get started again. Very off putting; this is why they have fluffers behind the cameras.Your goods also have to be very photogenic (most aren't). So yeah, they're not joking about the word "audition". - 2011-04-06 10:54

      I also wants to know what f*cking acting skills? Sorry for my lang. But I mean really. I will try to improve on my acting skills the next time.. I am... Um... You know what. That will be an awsome why for me to improve my acting skills.
