There are some parents who have a variety of worries about their child’s prom. This rite of passage for high school students has a notorious reputation for drinking, drugs and underage hanky-panky. Some schools opt to make the night less vice filled by holding their proms in convention halls instead of hotels (which have things that can lead to temptation like bars and private rooms). And although they may have tried to make their children’s prom as squeaky clean as possible, they can’t control what other activities are happening around them. Case in point? The Miami Beach Senior High School prom that just happened to be taking place right next door to a porn convention…
As luck would have it, booked in the same building, on the same Saturday night was the Miami Beach senior prom and the 3-day Exxxotica Expo. While prom goers were partying in one part of the building, porn stars were net-working at the “largest event in the USA dedicated to love and sex.” Parents were not pleased with the coincidence, with one mom telling CBS Miami, “Oh no, I don’t like that…That is terrible. I don’t like it.”
Apparently, she didn’t have anything to worry about. The entrances to the halls for the prom and the porn event – as the Huffington Post reports – were at opposite sides of the building and there was extra security added so the worlds of the prom and porn goers would not collide.
Would you worry if your teen’s prom was next to a porn convention?
