This year Sexhibition was held in a different venue to last, it was in Manchester Victoria Warehouse, which was a massive location and easy to find.
When we pulled into the street where Sexhibition was being held, we were greeted by a man in a hi viz vest who directed us behind a building to park, he then told us it was a £10 charge. I did ask whether he was a genuine parking attendant, which he said he was but didn't provide us with a ticket. It seemed bit dodgy, however when we walked over the Sexhibition they said they were a private company that Sexhibition hadn't employed but they had the right to be there.
When we entered it was pretty dark, The Victoria Warehouse, is just that - it seems like a victorian warehouse. it was massive and the event was held in several of the rooms over 2 floors.
During the day I decided to wear a dress/lace shirt from our Noir Handmade Fetish Wear Collection. I wasn't so daring with it being a public event and thought to put a boob tube and black knickers underneath it.

Sexhibiton held classes and question and answer sessions with porn stars, however as the times weren't given for these paid events, some of the people who had bought tickets missed the thing they had paid for, including our friends from Love Swingers who had tickets to see Stoya.
On the main stage during the day there was many fashion and catwalk shows and most of the stalls that were selling clothes at Sexhibition participated. you could have a seat in front of the stage and get right up to it to watch the catwalk shows. This changed during the night time event which we will go into later.

We decided to go home to have something to eat, as Sexhibition daytime ended around 5pm and the after dark party didn't start til around 7.30pm.
When we came back the parking attendant tried to charge us again for our parking, which was suppose to be an all day pass, so I refused and told him i'd already paid, he said he remembered my face and said ok.
We went back inside. As last year the stalls were still open on the night and this year they had put tables in front of the main stage for the VIPs (people who had paid more for a ticket and meal) but put barriers round them. This meant that if you didn't have a VIP ticket you couldn't see the burlesque show or anything on the main stage. There was no where to really socialise and relax, no disco , no where to dance. To tell you the truth the after dark party was worse than the daytime. Next year we will only get tickets for the daytime.
I'm not sure whether Sexhibition is getting better or worse, they improve on one thing and mess up another.
