Over three decades, the annual indoor event became a major attraction in the San Francisco Bay and was attended by nearly half a million people since its inception with steadily increasing growth in attendance each year until , when the event was cancelled due to poor ticket sales and cost overruns. Because of the broad spectrum of conventional and unconventional entertainment offered on multiple stages at the Exotic Erotic Ball, it may be described as a combination of Adult-themed; Halloween festival, Music Festival , Burlesque show, Lingerie party , Masquerade ball , Fetish club , Swingers party and Adult Industry Trade Show. The expo was a two-day Adult-Expo typically held the day before and the day of the Exotic Erotic Ball. Activities included panel discussions on First Amendment rights with adult actress , actors, and media, wine tastings with porn stars , and various oddities such as the "spiritual oasis" with psychic readings and massage, body painting , a classic adult cinema , and a human petting zoo. It also features a commercial area with vendors and exhibitors who showcase the latest in exotic fashion, erotic art , adult products, games, websites, and adult novelties. The location changed over the years ending up at its last home at the Cow Palace in Daly City.

But Danny Bonaduce, well, I think I love you. I still remember a few years ago when I hosted a room for an around-the-world-themed room-to-room party. My room was Chatsworth, the porn capital of the world, and I decorated my pink walls with pages ripped from Penthouse. And then there you were, posing seductively behind a guitar large enough to hide your steaming man bits. Not many people shared my excitement for your cheeky pose and your aging muscular body, but then again not many people can experience true beauty without getting even a little bit jealous, now can they?
The Sexual Manifesto: Danny Bonaduce to Bring the Sexy to Erotic Ball
A multiday confab of the sex industry culminating in a night of dancing and stage performances, Exotic Erotic is moving this year from the Cow Palace — where it took place from to and again last year — to a pavilion in Richmond. The real reason Exotic Erotic is parting ways with the state-run venue in Daly City isn't just a yearning to be closer to the Chevron refinery. According to event executive producer Howard Mauskopf, he and founder Mann chose to leave based largely on suspicions that massive ticket fraud took place at last year's ball.
The Exotic Erotic Ball, a self-proclaimed "celebration of flesh, fetish and freedom" that was first held in San Francisco 31 years ago and has long been associated with the city - even after its move to the Cow Palace - is heading across the bay to Richmond. The move means that instead of having 20, people in lace, latex and body paint, organizers will be able to cram just 14, attendees into the Craneway Pavilion on the Richmond waterfront over two days. Of course, size isn't what matters, said Howard Mauskopf , the event's executive producer.
