A convention billing itself as "the largest event in the U.S. devoted to love and sex” opened Friday at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. Before the end of the weekend, more than 15,000 people are expected to turn up at EXXXOTICA.

Some North Texas nonprofits wanted to shut it down.
