Criticism continues to mount for a pornography expo set to take place in the city of Houston.

The Hilton Houston Southwest hotel near the Galleria-area will welcome some of the top porn stars in the industry for the TEXXXAS adult expo.

Event organizer John Gray says there will be no nudity and everything will be kept at PG-13. The event kicks off August 17 and runs through August 20.

"We are not putting it in the faces of Houston, Texas," he said.

The three-day event will give porn fans access to adult-rated movies and merchandise.

"Not something I would want to be around, but I would not stop someone else from having their convention as long as they handle it correctly," Claire Dai-McGaughy said.

Gray says he held a similar adult expo about seven years ago.

"I can't change what people perceive this event will be. I just asked them to attend it and I'll get a better idea," Gray added.
