Frequently Asked Question:

  • Q: How old do you need to be to go to the XO Ball and/or Expo?
  • A: For both the Ball and Expo, 18 and over with ID.
  • Q: Will there be a place for me to check my coat?
  • A: Yes, there will be a coat check as soon as you enter.
  • Q: Will there be a place for me to check what I buy at the exhibitor booths so I don't have to carry it around?
  • A: Individual vendors may be able to hold merchandise for you and you can pick it up from them later.
  • Q: Can I take pictures?
  • A: Yes, you may bring in small digital cameras, but professional SLR cameras or cameras with detachable lenses are not allowed.
  • Q: Can I shoot video?
  • A: Nope, sorry, not unless you work for the Ball or you are with an approved media outlet, with necessary credentials.
  • Q: Will there be food and drink?
  • A: Of course. There will be many bars and many beverage choices, hard and soft.
  • Q: How does parking work?
  • A: Our new venue has a gigantic parking lot with tons of available space, and they control all parking.
  • Q: Can I take a cab or limo to the event?
  • A: Yes you can. But please make arrangements for a return pick-up.
  • Q: Do I need to dress up for the Ball and if so, in what fashion?
  • A: The dress-up is not a requirement, but it is a big part of the show. We highly recommend everyone dressing in lingerie, pajamas, fetish, masquerade or costume. Dress as sexy as you want. Our motto is: Everyone's A Star at the XO Ball. That means you're a Star too, so dress like one ! Side note: We will be holding our three contests with prizes, Miss XO Ball, Mr. XO Ball, and the Best Costume. Everyone attends is welcome to try and qualify.
  • Q: What should I wear to the Ball?
  • A: This question is so important, we asked it twice. Wear masquerade, sexy costume lingerie, fetish attire, pajamas or something that makes you look outrageously sexy!
  • Q: Is nudity allowed?
  • A: The Official policy is "no public nudity".
  • Q: Is "groping" allowed?
  • A: No, you just can't start groping people. Try to imagine that you had a normal upbringing for a minute - would you want people indiscriminately groping you? We'll answer that for you if you're having trouble — no, you would not. At the XO Ball, the operative word is respect. If you keep in mind that lots of people are feeling sexy and aroused, then you will realize that it is OK to ask someone if you can touch. Yes - it is OK to ask. But do respect the answer. If it's not the answer you wanted, then ask someone else. Remember – if you grope, you leave. But - if it is consensual, then ... well ... then it's not really groping, it's fondling.
  • Q: Is there an After Party this year?
  • A: Not at this time.
  • Q: Should I buy a General Admission ticket or a VIP ticket to the Ball?
  • A: The VIP ticket will allow you the following extras: priority red carpet entry into the Ball, a special VIP reception with celebrities and porn stars, a private VIP room with two complimentary drink tickets, special performances, music, and interactive side shows, plus backstage access where you can mingle with the celebrities and adult stars.
  • Q: Will you be selling tickets at the door?
  • A: Yes, you can buy tickets at the door for the Ball or the Expo.
  • Q: Can I order tickets online?
  • A: Yes, all online tickets sales will be handled through TicketMaster.
  • Q: Is there another way to order tickets besides the internet?
  • A: If you do not pre-purchase your ticket online, you can come to the event early to purchase your ticket.
  • Q: Tell me more about the XO Expo and do I want to go to both that and the Ball?
  • A: The Expo is a great event for anybody interested in erotic art, exotic fashion, the latest in adult toys, websites, and novelties, or a quieter version of the Ball without wearing an elaborate costume. It is a perfect place to shop for outfits for the Ball, and it has a lot of previews of the Ball, so it is very entertaining. If you are interested in a great time at a lesser price featuring top stars in adult entertainment, you don't want to miss the Expo.
  • Q: What is the best way for me to make sure I get the latest information as it becomes available?
  • A: Please join our email mailing list.
