The 2012 Adult Entertainment Expo is officially a wrap. The exhibitors have packed up their booths, the fans have gone home and the porn stars have kicked off their stilettos and put away their lip-gloss. As for me, I have a pair of sore feet and a case of Twitter exhaustion. I also have a list of some of my favorite quotes from both on and off the Expo floor ...

Sex educator Reid Mihalko: “There is a reason why we want to hump.”

Greg DeLong, co-founder of NJoy Toys: “Two inches of steel is bigger than two inches of anything else.”

Film scholar Constance Penley: "Being a porn professor has killed my dating life, because everyone thinks I know everything and that my standards are high. But, really, my expectations are quite low.”

Adult performer Kimberly Kane on auditioning: “I read the script.”

Porn legend Nina Hartley: “I got into porn because that’s where the naked women were.”

An adult-film director on the early days of shooting porn parodies: “It was Boogie Nights, really.”

A random sex toy manufacturer: “I make a product called Camel Toe. Most women hate it.”

Expo attendee Diana Pozo on the Real Touch, a virtual sex toy for men: “You have to put your finger in it.”

Industry attorney Allan Gelbard: "If you are a content producer and you don't have a lawyer, you are playing Russian roulette."

Friend Tess Danesi on her way back to the Hard Rock Hotel on a blustery Vegas night: “There’s a tumbleweed stuck to my dress.”
