Porn? Say please

Wanna meet a porn star? Check out our rules of etiquette

The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is:
A: the parallel and alternate universe to the Consumer Electronics Show
B: the primary trade convention of a $12 billion industry
C: the chance to meet a real live porn star

More than 20,000 fans pay $40 ($50 at the door) to choose C. But if you want to make her happy to meet you, you’ll have to offer something more: good manners.

“They want to be treated like a lady, even if they have a gutter mouth,” says porn star Taylor Wane, who owns and operates Taylor Wane Entertainment.

“We’re standing there in spike heels all day long. Be nice,” says Wicked Pictures’ multihyphenate Stormy Daniels, who recently appeared in Universal Pictures’ “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” “Last year, I figured out 17 ways to kill a man with a Sharpie.”

Porn Dos…

DO attend on Friday. Thursday is for the trade; Saturday is for rabid fans; Sunday is for hangovers.

DO arm yourself with extra deodorant. “And breath mints,” says Daniels. “You should strap Tic Tacs across your chest, like Rambo.”

DO acknowledge her friends. If you run into a porn star outside the AVN halls and want to tell her how much you appreciated her work in “Tiptoe Through the Two Lips,” you’ll get a lot further if you first say “I’m sorry, excuse me,” to whoever she’s with. “Especially if it’s a guy,” Daniels says. “He’ll probably start talking with you and that’s your in.”

DO get permission. “Hundreds of gorgeous women, scantily clad, who have sex for a living,” says Wane. “When men see that, their brains don’t compute. They just start grabbing.” Daniels says: “If you grab my boob, I’m probably going to punch you. If you ask, that might be a different story.”

DO hang out in the Venetian Hotel around 7 p.m. Saturday. That’s when a crowd forms a receiving line running from the casino to the hotel’s ballroom. You’ll see hundreds of porn stars walk to the AVN Awards in full-length finery.

And porn DON’Ts

DON’T rip off the porn stars. The girls are on constant watch for eBay vultures. Blue signatures can be scanned and lifted for other photos, which is why all Sharpies are black. And don’t ask for autographs without your name.

DON’T cut in line. Not only is this bad manners, it’s bad for your health. “The other guys will turn on you like pit bulls,” Daniels says.

DON’T ask her who she is. “We get guys who ask, ‘Can I put my hands up your skirt? Can I lick your boob? Oh, what’s your name again?'” Daniels says. “If you don’t know, ask someone else.”

DON’T ask stupid questions. “Because we have sex on film, people assume we’re completely OK with everyone knowing everything about you,” says Wane. “There’s some things I want to keep private, like the last conversation with my gynecologist.” Club Magazine’s Gina Lynn says: “The dumbest question I get is if I’m related to Amber Lynn or Ginger Lynn. Someone asks that every year.”

DON’T think you’re going to the AVN Awards. Tickets are sold out.
