From 17 to 20 October 2019, Berlin was dominated for the 23rd time by passion, lust and eroticism. In the exhibition halls under the iconic Funkturm, visitors could enjoy many surprises at the opening event on Thursday. Micaela Schäfer and Patricia Blanco, dressed in glamorous gold, opened the fair as brand ambassadors. There were also numerous exciting and entertaining shows, countless new products as well as many stars and starlets to catch. 28,325 visitors, shoppers and trade visitors from all over the world came to Berlin for the 23rd edition of the erotic and lifestyle fair.
For four days and four nights, stars and celebrities celebrated sex and eroticism with their fans and trade visitors. After an extensive party weekend full of sensuality, the exhibitors look back on one of the most successful trade fairs so far. This year, VENUS once again set new records: On the one hand, Saturday was once again the busiest day of the fair. On the other hand, there was a world record attempt of erotic hypnosis on the main stage on Friday and Saturday: Hypnosis artist Vive put all volunteers into a trance and let them experience their first kiss, tingling excitement or a breathtaking orgasm. All other VENUS enthusiasts also got their money’s worth in terms of lust and eroticism. No wonder considering that there were more than 250 exhibitors from 40 countries with all kinds of exciting new products at their booths. At the stands of the toy manufacturers Eis.de, Lelo and Mystim, for example. Breathtaking lingerie and exciting latex designs could also be admired everywhere. At the booths of MyDirtyHobby, Bongacams, Stripchat and VISIT-X, visitors could meet their favorite camgirls up close and had the opportunity to watch live cam shows. In the Ladies Area, all-female visitors got their money’s worth with hot strip shows by men, while many female star acts provided hot moments for the men.
There were also the popular guided tours for visually impaired and blind people. In cooperation with ABSV – Allgemeiner Blinden- und Sehbehindertenverein Berlin – VENUS offered them a guided tour of the highlights of the fair. VISIT-X also broadcast a continuous and unrestricted live stream from VENUS. Of course, there were numerous parties and festivities during the whole weekend of the fair. The legendary VENUS Awards were presented during a festive gala on Thursday. Stars such as Captain John, Little Caprice, Hanna Secret and Marcello Bravo were delighted to win one of the coveted gold figures.
But: After the VENUS is before the VENUS! Next year, Europe’s largest erotic and lifestyle fair will once again take place from 22 to 25 October 2020 with numerous exhibitors, news, stars and starlets from the industry. Visitors can already look forward to countless highlights and attractions.
