Officials in a New Jersey town are fighting plans for the return of an erotic convention.

Producers for EXXXOTICA say last year's expo at Raritan Center in Edison drew 18,000 and they're planning a bigger event in September.

The event - which features adult film stars, products and performances - was moved to the center last year after it drew strong opposition from officials in Secaucus.

Victory Tradeshow Management owner J. Handy says nothing untoward took place and he doesn't anticipate any major roadblocks this year.

Edison spokesman Jerry Barca says the township had assurances from the convention center that the event would not be returning.

The event is scheduled for Sept. 25-27.
