Sexpo:Durban lets its hair down for ‘breathtaking’ new acts

2011-08-23 00:00

THE popularity of Sexpo shows that Durban is moving away from its conservative outlook and, like Johannesburg and more so Cape Town, “ready for artistic expression”, says publicist

Phillipa Harvey, who has been with Sexpo since its inception in South Africa a decade ago.

Harvey says Sexpo is seeing real potential in Durban and will continue to feature in the city annually.

“The Indian community, which has a huge influence on Durban’s economy, has shown that they can be open-minded and accommodating and it’s wonderful to see so many of them attend our exhibition over the years.”

Harvey says first-time Sexpo-goers are initially taken aback by some of the cheeky activities on offer, but eventually become used to them.

New features at this year’s Sexpo include 102 stalls already confirmed, a stage show every 25 minutes and workshops in between.

“This year Sexpo is indulging the divine in a non-stop, no-holds-barred, bare-thighed, high-heeled, eat-your -heart-out event that is guaranteed to take your breath away,” says Harvey.

“Your hosts for the event are Suzie Q and Toby, coupled with a dazzling display of aerial performances.”

New faces are entertainment house Frog Productions, whose speciality acts and interactive entertainment are unlike any other in the country, DreamDoll, who show off their custom-made beauties, and body painter extraordinaire, Charl Bubb.

The Witness is giving away five double tickets for entry to the Sexpo, which runs from Thursday to Sunday at the Durban Exhibition Centre.

Call 031 533 7621 before 2 pm tomorrow.

Tickets are available from Computicket. For more information visit
