Parents Not Pleased When Senior Prom Takes Place Next to Exxxotica Expo

By Sunny Chanel |

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?

    I’m guessing the kids of these uptight parents will be going off to seminary school next year with Net Nanny preloaded on their laptops.

    Well, I’m might not be in love with it, but I wouldn’t deny my kids the opportunity to go~ I’d make them aware and tell them to watch out for strangers tho ;-)

    I wonder if the Convention Center mentioned to the prom organizers that there was a porn convention scheduled at the same time. Though I applaud that they thought ahead to separate entrances and beef up security, by not telling the organizers, the Convention Center took away the organizers’ opportunity to schedule the prom at another venue (which was obviously the point of withholding the info). And no matter how hard they tried, they couldn’t keep the events separate – the photos of Chyna falling down drunk at the Expo before being rushed to the ER were credited to the high schoolers who busted out their camera phones and sent them off to TMZ before the paparazzi could.
