Johannesburg - Tim Patch paints using his penis and Jessica Drake saves the world through her porn. This is the topsy-turvy world of Sexpo.
The porn star and painter are among the many international attractions at this year’s Sexpo Health, Sexuality & Lifestyle expo that opened on Thursday at Nasrec, to the joy and excitement of the many who stood in line.
At Sexpo, stalls lined with vibrators, dildos, lingerie and porn videos.
A gigantic blow-up penis called Mount Peni was open for anyone to climb, and strip poker games were played where everyone could see.
There is a strip club, a ladies lounge and an area where people who are into bondage and domination can buy whips and chains.
When the doors to the four-day expo opened, more people gathered at Patch’s stall than anywhere else.
Pricasso, as Patch is aptly known, wielded his penis as a paintbrush to deliver portraits of those who sat in his white chair. Covered in paint, the naked 64-year-old said the idea to paint unconventionally came to him after he went through his second divorce.
“I think I was out shopping when it came to me,” said the former builder in an Australian accent.
“I figured it was a good way to get out and party.”
Pricasso has been painting for 10 years and said his three grandchildren think that what he does is cool.
“My daughter used to be horrified,” he laughed.
Pricasso makes his own paint because of some nasty run-ins with lime-based paint. He said it used to eat away at his skin but now he has a healing ritual he swears by.
“Although it’s a pretty durable tool, I put vaginal anti-septic cream on it and wrap it in cling wrap all night and it doesn’t fall off.”
Another person who is more famous when naked is porn star Drake.
The 37-year-old Wicked Pictures pin-up has been in the blue-movie industry for 10 years and has graduated from acting to writing and directing porn flicks.
“I’m very fortunate because my naked work has taken me to places I never would have gone otherwise,” said the blonde, who was followed by a camera crew shooting a documentary about her.
Drake will be signing her sexual how-to videos during the duration of Sexpo.
“They’re instructional and educational, and there are some demonstrations so that people can watch to learn or watch for pleasure,” she said. – The Star
