For the first time, the world's largest and most notorious porn conference is going virtual. AVN Media Network has announced that its 2012 Adult Entertainment Expo, which takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Jan. 20-21, will be open to online registrants for the first time.

A $19 pass scores all the behind the scenes action one could desire -- well, not really, but it will get you a peek at the exhibitors' booths, the 29th annual awards show, and the decadent afterparties as they unfold. There'll also be interactive podcasting and the titillating promise of "downloadable material."

Organizers expect around 30,000 to attend in the flesh, but they haven't released expectations for virtual numbers this year, though we wouldn't be surprised if the numbers can be matched up. Hard Rock Hotel will host all of the events within its complex, another first for the conference.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
