If you're attending this year's CES, you will, perhaps, experience withdrawal symptoms.
For, as I peruse the landscape for next week's porn fest of gadgetry, I notice that there will be something missing: the porn fest.
It has seemed like an immovable tradition that CES occurs at the very same time as the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo.
Indeed, the porn exhibition was, one suspects, the primary destination for many of the attendees. They were like gentlemen of old who hid their Playboys inside their copies of The New York Times.
Now, however, the flesh show will occur the week of January 18, long after even the most hungover CES attendees will have returned to the ones they say they love.
What could possibly be the reason for such an incomprehensible decision?
Might it be that the porn stars were fed up of being harassed by nerds whose experience of girls was akin to their experience of the love poetry of Pablo Neruda? Might it be that the porn stars were, in fact, so obsessed with electronic items that they were being distracted from their carnal exhibition?
The reason I was given by an AVN spokesman was interesting.
