June 23-25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 21, 2006 -- Art is about evoking a reaction -- it can make you feel happy, sad, confused and oftentimes, very turned on. This year's Erotica LA (ELA) show is sure to dish up some sexy reactions when some of the best erotic photographers in the country offer their own presentations of their photos. Leading erotic photographers Andrew Blake and Justice Howard and famed rock photographer Henry Diltz present their works of art when ELA hosts their first-ever photographic gallery, when each photographer presents a slide show displaying their favorite photographs while giving insight into their worlds as they see it. ELA, the largest Erotic shopping metroplex and cultural event to hit Los Angeles, will take place June 23-25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Presentation times are as follows: Andrew Black, Friday at 7pm, Justice Howard, Saturday at 8pm and Henry Diltz presenting his erotic photographs at 1pm and his rock 'n roll photos at 3pm on Sunday. Diltz, who is presenting "Love Ins and Rock 'n Roll," is credited for his iconic photos of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones and hundreds more. Howard and Blake, however, are known for their poignant portrayals of both celebrities and everyday people. In addition, the 18th Annual Sensual and Erotic Art Exhibition: The Fetish Image features beautiful and edgy artwork from Los Angeles' top, new contemporary artists. This X-Art Gallery focuses on the aesthetic genius of R.C. Horsch and Latin Visions: The Sensual & Erotic Art.

Join hosts, sex symbol Jenna Jameson and hot alternative rock star Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Camp Freddy, Panic Channel) as they host this year's ELA.

This year, a new exciting show floor is divided into two zones: The Sensual Zone for women and couples who want to enhance their love life and romance, and the X-Zone, representing the spicy and more risqué side of erotica and featuring the most erotic merchandise on the market from adult entertainment to the steamiest clubs in LA.

ELA will also feature various sexy seminars and "how to" workshops courtesy of the Pleasure Chest Learning Center; Vivid's "Debbie Does Dallas... Again" Cheerleader Tryouts; the 3rd Annual Exotic Dancer Showdown; and daily appearances by the "Wicked Girls."
