Porn Vixen Sasha Gray Speaks Out Against Sex- for Cats & Dogs Today in Las Vegas

Award-winning adult film icon Sasha Grey says, “Too much sex can be a bad thing”—for dogs and cats, that is—in a provocative new PETA ad in which she’s shown posing nude in a bed. 

The adult film star will unveil the campaign – and her real passion – after she delivers the AVN keynote speech earlier this afternoon, Jan. 8, at the 2010 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. She is the latest celebrity to appear in PETA’s ad series that is aimed at reducing dog and cat overpopulation by promoting spaying and neutering.  

Each year, up to 8 million dogs and cats are dumped at U.S. animal shelters, and about half of them must be euthanized because of a lack of suitable homes. Sasha urges all her fans to help curb the overpopulation crisis by spaying and neutering their dogs and cats to prevent pregnancies.

Sex Wanes in Las Vegas

Sex to Las Vegas is like the motherhood and apple pie for puritanical cities:  it provides the embodiment and very essence of Sin City’s worldwide allure and attraction.  Sex drives Las Vegas.  Or does it? sex

The sad but naked truth is Las Vegas sex convention dominance is being challenged.  Witness the results this year from the annual sex poster child- the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo at the Sands Expo and Convention Center that occurred on January 9 through 11.  Although similar smaller adult conventions take place, the Las Vegas AVN convention has always been the ‘Big Momma’- by and far the reigning ruler of THE largest event for the adult entertainment industry worldwide.  

Thousands of sex workers make their annual pilgrimage to the Mecca of Sin.  Last year event organizers reported attendance of approximately 12,000 sex industry workers, 17,000 fans, and 1,300 of the media.  That provides a whole lot of legalized peeking-and-peeping.  

But this year, only 250 exhibitors took the gamble to show up and showcase their latest and greatest in adult entertainment products and toys.  That’s down about 18 percent, according to expo spokesman Sean Devlin.  

The only saving grace is that fan and media interest appeared strong this year.  Many attendees grabbed the rare opportunity to see in one place the adult industry’s top stars and try to gain their “secrets” by attending fan seminars, events, and taking advantage of a plethora of up-close and personal networking opportunities. 

But looking doesn’t keep the lights on.  

The toxic U.S. economy has siphoned off billions of dollars in profits from the normally “healthy” sex business.   Though estimates vary, nationally the sex industry is thought to now generate about $13 billion annually.  That’s down from $18 billion three years ago, according to top industry figures.
