The streets around Cape Town and Somerset West have been made a lot racier thanks to advertising for The Sex Expo that returns to CTICC this Friday to Sunday, and not everybody is happy about it.
With just days to go before Cape Town once again hosts the sexiest show on earth, a massive advertising campaign has been rolled out across the city and surrounds showcasing a curvy lingerie-clad bottom with The Sex Expo logo gleaming from one cheek.
“The campaign was presented to and approved by the City of Cape Town prior to rolling out, and official City of Cape Town stickers were provided for them,” says expo organizer Sarah Dean.
“The Sex Expo is sexy, fun and tasteful, like the campaign, but unfortunately you just can’t please everybody.”
Within days of the campaign being activated, the expo organisers were made aware that former SA Idols winner and baptism officer Heinz Winckler is actively campaigning to have the advertising removed. “The Sexpo signage on our street poles is unacceptable and inappropriate and should be removed immediately,” Winckler messaged on a Somerset West Facebook group.
Local city councillors also joined the fray and sent the expo organisers an email demanding that the posters featuring the ‘semi-nude’ bottom be removed and put pressure on the street pole advertising supplier to do so. “It seems that the politicians really got their knickers in a twist over this,” says expo organiser Sarah Dean, “after approving a fun campaign they demanded its removal without following any due process. Luckily it seems Winckler and the politicians are out of touch with most Capetonians, as online ticket sales are going crazy and we’re expecting our biggest sex expo yet!”
World famous penile artist Pricasso got wind of the controversy and immediately got to work with his infamous brush, and created a portrait of Heinz Winkler, sporting a tiny winkie, swinging on a street pole removing The Sex Expo posters. The uncensored version of the racy portrait will be on display at The Sex Expo this weekend.
The Sex Expo is a fun and entertaining adult-themed exhibition that features incredible stage shows with the hottest stars in the Southern Hemisphere, a hall full of sexy exhibitor stands showcasing a huge range of products, and a whole lot of naughty entertainment and fun. The Sex Expo is bringing tasteful titillation back to Cape Town from 9-11 June 2023 and is the ultimate destination for sexy shopping and sizzling entertainment.
The Sex Expo, the most erotic expo in history, is the perfect fun day or night out for the girls, and the guys will love it too!
