Updated: No X in Texas...

August 17-19 2016. Hilton hotel censors adult expo after moralist campaigners claim that it facilitates prostitution and trafficking.

TEXXXAS: The Show was an adult expo was scheduled for Houston, Texas, next month.

Morality in Media, now calling themselves National Center on Sexual Exploitation, reported that they had asked Hilton executives not to host the event. The group claimed that the event had the potential to facilitate an increased demand for prostitution, and sex trafficking, in the local area. This would have partly resulted from the demand for commercial sex both at the expo and surrounding after parties at local strip clubs.

Hilton Worldwide apparently responding to the Morality in Media call cancelled the expo. Along with Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), a third-party management services provider, Hilton Worldwide decided to no longer host this event.

In a communication informing Morality in Media of the cancellation, a Hilton representative stated:

Hilton is committed to respecting human rights and preventing sexual exploitation and we continuously review our policies to ensure we provide a welcoming environment for guests, employees and members of our communities.

The TEXXXAS fan expo, which will make its debut Aug. 17, has relocated to the Holiday Inn Southwest.

The hotel is located at 11160 Southwest Freeway in Houstonā?�10 miles from downtown Houston and five miles from the Galleria area.

The three-day event, officially called TEXXXAS The Show, will feature more than 30 adult film stars.

Update: Relocated

The TEXXXAS fan expo, which will make its debut Aug. 17, has relocated to the Holiday Inn Southwest.

The hotel is located at 11160 Southwest Freeway in Houston, 10 miles from downtown Houston and five miles from the Galleria area.

The three-day event, officially called TEXXXAS The Show, will feature more than 30 adult film stars.

Update: Moralists persuade Holiday Inn to ban the event too

The inaugural TEXXXAS fan expo, scheduled for Aug. 17-20, is looking for its second new venue in less than a week after the Holiday Inn Southwest cancelled its agreement to host the event.

John Gray, organizer and president of TEXXXAS The Show, told AVN Wednesday he is considering several options for the new venue and assured the show will go on as planned.

Holiday Inn capitulated after  being approached by Morality in Media campaigners. Dawn Hawkins, executive director of NCOSE crowed:

InterContinental Hotels Group and the independently owned and operated Holiday Inn Southwest hotel took an important stand against sexual exploitation by refusing to host this pornography expo. After we heard that the TEXXXAS event had been cancelled by Hilton, we reached out to remind IHG executives of the potential harms such an event could have on the local community and of IHG's own policy on pornography. In a clear display of corporate and social responsibility, IHG took immediate action to address the situation.

Update: A new home

The TEXXXAS adult expo has finally settled on a new venue at a local strip club.

 The inaugural event will be held at Cover Girls, 10310 West Little York Road, with a $5.99 steak buffet. Promoter John Gray said:

All of the after parties are still on and the show is still being sponsored by Adam & Eve, the high-end sex shop. The expo will be on the second floor of the club and will feature no nudity.

 

 

Sydney Underground Film Festival...

Organisers speak of those films with issues for censors, Love, Bunny the Killer Thing and Dolphin Love

The Sydney Underground Film Festival
17 -20th September 2015
The Factory Theatre in Marrickville, Sydney

After a recent change to Australian film censorship law, festival organisers have been speaking of an improved process making it a bit easier to schedule censor baiting material. Festival organisers are now allowed to self-assess as to whether yet to be censored movies are permissible.

Events such as the Sydney Underground Film Festival's co-director Stefan Popescu welcomed the new classification exemptions for festivals and special events:

I think it's far more intelligent to give festivals greater responsibility in assessing the suitability of content for their exhibition, he says. It is good to see that the [Classification Board] is moving towards a less controlling and fearful position in their policies concerning content for media.

The festival opens on Thursday with a screening of French film Love, which has been described as a 3D pornographic movie. Popescu says the film, which premiered at this year's Cannes film festival, challenges the way sexuality is addressed in Australia.

I think we should relax the censorship laws and generally relax our conservative attitudes towards sexuality, he says. I personally don't understand why people are so uptight about something that forms the basis of human existence, yet we celebrate and support violence and warmongering publicly.

This year's festival was programmed before the new censorship rules were enacted and Popescu speaks of films creating issues for the censors. The Australian censors were concerned in particular about two scenes from a Finnish comedy-horror movie, Bunny The Killer Thing. One of the scenes had a woman being bashed unconscious and then sexually assaulted, but the censors did not required cuts. Popescu commented:

I chose Bunny The Killer Thing , because I love ridiculous gore films, there is some sort of sick pleasure in it for me

But even Popescu said he was shocked by the documentary Dolphin Love:

I just find it one of the more confronting films, because this guy really believes he had a loving relationship with a dolphin, he says. I just don't know how I feel about that because firstly it's real and secondly there is no way to assess whether the dolphin consents.

The festival will close with Eli Roth's Knock Knock, an erotic horror film featuring Keanu Reeves.
