Holy wow. I had an amazing time at the ANME Show this time around, July 2011. They went ahead and upstaged their previous shows and put on an awesome carnival for the attendees. As usual, ANME puts on an amazing novelty show and hosts the biggest brands and companies with their latest adult products. If you’re a buyer or seller of these products, ANME is not to be missed. This particular show was bigger than the last few that I’ve attended and it seems that the word and reputation of the event is really spreading.
The location of the show is perfect, it’s held in Burbank, Ca and it’s inside the Marriott hotel. I love the fact that it’s not hard to access, the parking is easy and the show is spread out through a couple ballrooms. This time, however, they converted the exterior tent (huge), into a carnival. First and foremost, the air conditioning was bliss. Secondly, the layout and activities were the coolest thing ever. You will see in the photos below – there was a slew of treats, photo booths, games, prizes, a bucking bull to ride on, rock band, arcade games, DDR, I think there were casino games of some sort, also. I stayed toward the carnival side of the tent, where the games were. I would have never imagined that I would be attending a carnival where you could choose dildos and vibrators as prizes. It’s brilliant. Consider this my plea – ANME, do it again, please! These games were pure, perverted fun. I was hanging out in line with a group of guys who were all excited about getting anal douches and then they each pulled one out of their prizes and cheered each other on. It was the cutest thing ever. Plus, they were hot. What’s not to love about that?
Basically, you would get in line for a game, if you won, you would have your choice of any sex toy on the table. Aside from toys, they had pillows, masks, stuffed animals, hats, shirts, body jewels, etc. It was a brilliant idea for donating prizes to the games that would, in turn, advertise for the companies who donated. I barely got the OhMiBod Freestyle:G, there was a group of hairy old men in front of me who cheated at the game and all 4 of them got the Freestyle, thank God she (game girl) pulled another one out of a box! (I play fair!) Some other prizes that I got were: a male chastity device, a gay pillow pet, penis pasta, tantus dildos, Pandy bzzz buddy, boob jewels, a dolphin butt plug, random pink dildo. Oh, and I got the travel size “I rub my ducky – Paris”, that I gave to my mom, OG Glam. I’m thinking of using these products to benefit my blog, and to benefit you guys at the same time. I’ll be figuring out what to do with these things pronto! (Don’t worry, I haven’t used any, except the penis pasta…I had my parents over for dinner and made Peene Pesto Pasta.)
Just to end this post about the ANME Carnival – I have to say that it was one of my favorite shows that I’ve been to. The novelty exhibit was pristine, as usual. I will be doing a re-cap on the show and new products soon. I just needed to fit the cool photos from the carnival in their own blog entry! Thanks again, ANME, for having me and for replacing my favorite carnival memories with new ones, with dildos.
