DALLAS -- This weekend, Dallas is rated-X.  Make that XXX. Yep, the Exxxotica Expo is making its debut in Texas and wants you to come on down to the Dallas Convention Center to experience the longest running adult expo in the nation.

And thanks to all the media attention, good and bad, they're expecting a lot of bodies.

"This one has taken off right off the bat. Usually, it takes a year or two to kinda get your feet under you. I don't think there is a person in Dallas that doesn't know about this event right now," Director of the expo J. Handy said.

Nearly 20,000 folks are expected to attend. And hey, they aren't all dudes.

"Our event is actually 50/50. In fact, tonight because we do 'Ladies Free Friday,' we'll do about 70% of our attendance today women," Handy said.

Okay ladies, you can check out close to 200 porn stars, plenty of merchandise that we can and can't show you, and there's even a dungeon.

Hey, if you feel guilty even thinking about being here, no worries. It turns out, some of the exhibitors are Christian ministries who can help you loosen your Bible Belt.

"We're an online ministry. We deal a lot with matters of sexuality, marriage, parenting, what we would say is healthy sex," Pastor Carl Thomas of XXXchurch.com said. "We have resources, software and things like that can help in those areas of life. But we're also a church, so we also tell people about Jesus."
