Erotic trade fair VENUS introduces new brand ambassadors
Micaela Schäfer, Anne Wünsche, Texas Patti, Lena Nitro, Anike Ekina, RoxxyX and Diana Fetish
From October 26th to 29th, it’s VENUS time again in Berlin, and the 26th edition of the well-known erotic and lifestyle fair will take place in the exhibition halls under the Funkturm. Now, VENUS is introducing its brand ambassadors for this year, giving a first glimpse of the diversity of the fair this year.
Micaela Schäfer (39) is so closely connected to VENUS that she is celebrating her 10th anniversary as a VENUS representative this year: “There’s hardly a place where I can express myself better than at VENUS. It’s always the absolute highlight of the year for me, and just like every year, I’m planning a particularly hot action for this October… stay tuned,” explains Germany’s most famous erotic model, Micaela Schäfer.
For actress Anne Wünsche (32), the fair is uncharted territory. As an influencer and strong woman, she often finds herself in the public spotlight: “I’m a bit nervous about what to expect at VENUS. But those who know me know that I don’t mince words. I’m really looking forward to direct fan interaction, though.”
Texas Patti (41) traveled to VENUS all the way from the USA. The well-known adult film actress made the leap to America a few years ago and has firmly established herself there: “This year marks my 12th VENUS, and during this time, I’ve witnessed incredible developments in the adult entertainment industry. VENUS has always represented the pulse of this industry for me. It’s not just a trade fair; it’s a place where artists, visionaries, and fans from all over the world come together.”
Erotic star Lena Nitro (36) is one of the German veterans in the industry and was awarded a VENUS Award in 2022 in recognition of her long-standing contributions and exceptional achievements. She has a large fan base and is one of the most recognizable faces in the industry: “For me, VENUS is a unique opportunity every year to meet fans, friends, and business partners. I’m excited to officially represent VENUS and expect a full house at the fair.”
Anike Ekina (38) is perhaps the most famous firefighter in Germany. She lives near Hamburg, is a passionate musician, DJane, and a successful influencer at the same time: “I’ve been to VENUS many times; for me, it’s a unique event that you can only find once in the world.”
RoxxyX (34) is a tattoo and erotic model and has been a regular part of VENUS for many years. She has also been moderating the VENUS Awards for several years: “Besides hosting the Awards this year, I’m excited to take on additional representative duties for VENUS. The days of VENUS are always beautiful and intense at the same time.”
Italian erotic and fetish icon Diana Fetish (XX) embodies modern erotica like few others: “I love VENUS because something special happens during these days, a real spark in the heart of Europe. There are no judgments and no hypocrisy anymore; you can finally be everything you truly want to be.”
VENUS is looking forward to reaching millions and having seven fascinating individuals at the fair. All brand ambassadors will officially open VENUS on Thursday, October 26th, at 11 a.m. and will host several autograph sessions during the four days of the fair. In 2023, in addition to the main sponsors Eis.de, MyDirtyHobby, Stripchat, and Bongacams, numerous new exhibitors from around the world will be present, including Brazzers, Livejasmin, and Cherry TV.
Europe’s largest erotic and lifestyle fair, VENUS in Berlin, is taking new paths in 2023 and expanding its offerings. The predominantly young audience and sexual fantasies beyond outdated gender roles demand a more inclusive program expansion on a national and international level. Together for everyone: Be who you want to be: VENUS especially supports the Bi+ community and polysexual lifestyles and, in cooperation with the Berlin CSD e.V., advocates the “Basic Law for All!” initiative, including the expansion of Article 3 of the German Basic Law to support legal protection for sexuality and identity.

VENUS 2023, again with its own international B2B section
For Trade Visitors Only / 2.5 Days / Shorter Opening Hours
The time is right for re-introducing a dedicated business area at VENUS. Demand for it was already high in 2022, however, it was dampened by the lingering effects of the pandemic. This year, however, it is set to be strong again. From 26th – 28th October 2023, trade visitors will meet in Hall 21b to make direct contacts and close deals. Whether it’s wholesale and retail, online shops, affiliates, traffic, payments, or age verification, all facets of the industry will come together in a relaxed atmosphere. To ensure an uncomplicated check-in, there will be a separate business entrance. Appointments and new contacts can be arranged in advance through the event app. Panels and lectures will provide an opportunity for companies and individuals to introduce themselves and discuss current topics in the industry. The VENUS model lounge and the VENUS exhibitor lounge will be in the same hall, bringing content creators, exhibitors, and trade visitors together. While end customers are bustling next door, the offers of the future will be created here. There will be a relaxed atmosphere, lounges, catering and much more.
VENUS B2B, for trade visitors only, separate from the VENUS Consumer, 26th October 11am-7pm, 27th October 11am-7pm, 28th October 11am-3pm
