Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo Adds Author Richard Woods to Talent Line-Up
Woods to Present "UnLEARN! Vanilla Marriage" Seminar & Scathing “Douche of the Month” Series

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 14, 2008) – The 29th annual Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo, the internationally acclaimed Celebration of Flesh, Fetish, and Fantasy, and - according to E! Entertainment TV - “The World’s #1 Wildest and Sexiest Party,” announces the return of author and real-world opinionist and commentarian, Richard Woods, who will present his “UnLEARN! Vanilla Marriage” and “Douche of the Month” seminars.

Informative, funny, politically incorrect, and always honest, Richard’s "UnLEARN! Vanilla Marriage" seminar examines the self-destructive ‘Happily Ever After’ myths that have been programmed into everyone since the beginning of time.  According to Woods, “The problem is not that over half of all marriages end in divorce, it’s that the majority of the others plod on in boredom and drudgery.”  As a happily married non-monogamist, atheist, public speaker, and First Amendment advocate, Richard Woods offers far different perspectives about marriage and monogamy than what is the current standard.  Richard’s book, "UnLEARN!  Because Life Can Make You Stupid", is a refreshingly honest, informative, politically incorrect, and hysterically entertaining assault on life’s so-called truths, and the self-help industry.

Richard adds, “This seminar offers perspectives that you won't ever hear on daytime television.”

“I admire Woods’ irreverence and find his attitude both refreshing, and consistent with that of the Exotic Erotic Ball,” adds Ball founder Perry Mann.

Richard’s presentations will also feature his ‘Douche of the Month’ series.  “I shower golden accolades on the well-deserving people who make extremely lucrative livings bullshitting the vulnerable,” Woods continues.   “Sadly, I am not allowed to refer to any of them as two-faced, lying cocksuckers.  But, the First Amendment does grant me the right to call them a ‘Douche of the Month.’”

The Exotic Erotic Ball will decorate its Expo with Woods’ irreverent and observational ‘Douche of the Month’ vignettes, which will feature Syliva Browne, Doctor Phil, Justin Fatica, Cardinal Roger Mahoney, Bill O’Reilly, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and Zig Ziglar, to name just a few “Hall of Shame Douches.” 

Richard joins the Ball’s burgeoning line-up, also featuring hip-hop legend Tone Loc, rising hip-hop star Chuck Nutt with adult film legend Sunset Thomas, local musical sensation Smash-Up Derby, Ancilla Tilia and her shaving show (yes, shaving show), Las Vegas’ sexy sultry (and slithery) Snake-Babe, and the sexiest belly dance troupe in America - Layla and the Lotus Dancers.   Also -  The Genitorturers, renowned Indie bands from SonicBids, special guests Heather Chadwell, Danny Bonaduce, vixen Bobbi Billard, Akira Lane, and Eric the Midget, everyone’s favorite curmudgeon from The Howard Stern Show, who’ll help judge the costume competition.  Also on the bill are adult star Mika Tan, The Asian Diva Girls, an Erotic Arts Festival with 50 top erotic artists, The Exotic Erotic Expo with 100 exhibits of toys, fashion, and video, plus a Wall of Nipples, a Fetish Stage under the stern direction of Stefanos the Dungeon Master, Pricasso the Penis Painter (all the way from Australia), and a Human Petting Zoo.  Whew! 

To commemorate the move to the new waterside Treasure Island site, founder Perry Mann has doubled the cash and prizes for Best Costumes from $10,000 to $20,000.  The 2008 Mr. Exotic Erotic will win an all-expense trip to Oxygen Retreat, which even includes 20 pre-paid women.  That’s 20 women - pre-paid - we kid you not.  Richard Woods adds, “Perry Mann is no Douche.’”

Through its unique combination of mixing live mainstream musical, burlesque, and circus performances with political irreverence, humorous hi-jinks, and the bizarre - the Exotic Erotic Ball has delighted and regaled over half a million attendees over its long and highly acclaimed history.  Over 30,000 are expected in 2008 as the event takes over a beautiful waterside site at Treasure Island.

The two-day Expo is open Friday, October 24, 2008 from 2PM to 10PM, and on Saturday, October 25, 2008, from Noon to 6PM.  The Ball runs from 8PM to 2AM on the evening of October 25, 2008, and the Expo will also be open during the Ball for the enjoyment of Ball attendees.
