(ROSEMONT, IL — June 28, 2021) The EXXXOTICA Expo is glad to be open and back in Chicago as it celebrates its 10th year in the Windy City. And when EXXXOTICA opens its doors at the Donald E.

Signing on this year to help further the cause is Bad Dragon ( Bad Dragon is the top manufacturer of fantasy sex toys in the land, with their silicone creations handmade in the USA, and a full line of related products.

LGBTQ+-friendly companies and talent have the ability to indicate their dedication with the SW!TCH logo on EXXXOTICA’s website, and at the event itself at their booths. Their message of inclusion will mirror that of Bad Dragon’s and EXXXOTICA’s.

“Bad Dragon is honored and thrilled to serve as the sponsor of SW!TCH for EXXXOTICA throughout 2021,” said Mike Sullivan of Bad Dragon. “We are committed to diversity, inclusion, and celebrating the LGBTQ+ community.”

“We have a long history of inclusion at EXXXOTICA, beginning all the way back to our first event in 2006, which featured a number of LGBTQ+ businesses exhibiting,” said J. Handy, creator and director of EXXXOTICA. “I often say that there is something for everyone at our events, and the increased presence of LGBTQ-focused show features and exhibiting companies is the natural progression. And, we couldn’t ask for a better sponsor/partner in promoting this than the amazing team over at Bad Dragon.”

Bad Dragon’s sponsorship of SW!TCH will continue throughout 2021 with other upcoming shows for EXXXOTICA, presented by MyFreeCams (, which include the return of EXXXOTICA Miami, September 17-19 at the Miami Airport Convention Center.
