Two weekends ago, amid a vast array of the Garden State's finest parking lots, the seventh annual Exxxotica Convention, billed as the "largest event in the US dedicated to love and sex," commenced at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison, New Jersey. For three days, porn stars rubbed elbows (and other body parts, perhaps) with less attractive and well-endowed common people in a celebration of dicks, boobs, and free love. Photographer tag team Yael Malka and Cait Oppermann were there, capturing some of the weirder exhibits. While they definitely found sleaziness, artificiality, and commodification of women at the convention, they also discovered a surprisingly supportive community of people coming together to share similar sexy interests.
