A very Gonzo Sexpo Perth 2011

It's all over for another year, but Sexpo 2011 has been a blast.

But the biggest highlight for me came about through the power of twitter. As the bloke behind the @SexpoPerth twitter account, I spent quite a bit of time interacting with the stars of the show online, so thought I'd do my last tweeting live from the show.

I got a snap of adult film star Katsuni (@Katsuni)in action posing for pics with the punters and tweeted that I'd like to go say hi, but she was obviously too busy. And I didn't want to look like the creepy fanboi Sexpo single guy. There were enough of those already.

Anyway, a couple of minutes later a guy taps me on the shoulder and asks, 'Are you the Sexpo twitter guy?' I give a slightly hesitant, 'um, yeah...' and he tells me Katsuni wants to say hello.

So I go and sit on the couch with Katsuni, we have a nice chat and I get a photo of us on my iPhone and another glossy 10x8 which is now on the office pin-up board... how nice is that? A lovely lady and a French accent to die for.

Sure it's pretty cheesy and I'm fairly certain Mrs Freocookster isn't a big fan of me hanging with porn stars, but it's also kinda cool in a Gonzo kinda way.

Twenty years ago I would have taken the whole shebang down the Gonzo path aka HS Thompson, right from the get-go.

Back then I would have been liquored-up to the eyeballs, thrown Miss Katsuni over my shoulder and stumbled outside to my waiting topless Cadillac Eldorado, waving people away with a giant vibrating black dong.

I would have thrown her in the back, popped the trunk to snatch a handfull of blotter acid and a quart of ether, then pointed the Caddy down Great Eastern Hwy on a course for the Great Sandy Desert... pausing only briefly to swat the bats from my face (with the dong) and pick up my crazed Samoan lawyer.

But of course that was 20 years ago. This time around I smiled for the camera like a creepy fanboi, wished Katsuni a safe flight, got a peck on the cheek and set off home for the Western Suburbs in my Mazda 121 hoping to beat the rain. Gonzo man, pure Gonzo...

Bran Nue Day in Broome

A short clip I took of Stephen Baamba Albert singing Bran Nue Dae at the North West Expo in Broome last weekend.

Back on the Sexpo bandwagon

It's hard to believe it's been a full two years since I was handing out pink fluffy handcuffs to the Perth media set to promote the arrival of Sexpo to town.

But indeed, Perth's naughtiest four day event is back from 26-29 May at the Perth Conference and Exhibition Centre. And this year we gave out pink feather boas - far more tasteful!

Today's Inside Cover in The West Australian drew attention to the fact that even Kevin Rudd is following @SexpoPerth on twitter... we're working on Joe Hockey as the opposition representative!

In addition, International ambassador for Sexpo 2011, Michelle ‘Bombshell’

McGee will be sliding between the sheets in a custom-made four-poster bed at Barrack Square on Wednesday, 25 May and she wants Perth couples to join her.

‘Bombshell’ will be looking to set a new record for the most people in one bed at the same time and kick-start the world’s biggest adult lifestyle show.

If you're interested in participating in the bed record attempt you can register by emailing April at or by direct message on twitter to @SexpoPerth.
