An erotic conference planned for this weekend has been cancelled.

Organizers of the "Touch of Flavor" event says its vendors are losing thousands of dollars for an event they describe as adult-only and educational.

"When you do kink, it's bondage, role play and power exchange - those would be going on but there wouldn't be any sort of intercourse, oral sex things like that," said Susan Wright with the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.

An erotic convention set for this weekend at the Du Burns Arena in Canton has been cancelled. Organizers of the "Touch of Flavor" event say it's vendors are losing thousands of dollars for an event they describe as adult only and educational. "When you do kink, its bondage, role play, and power exchange - those would be going on but there wouldn't be any sort of intercourse, oral sex things like that," said Susan Wright with the National Coalition of Sexual Freedom. But arena management says the public facility would still have to be open, so kids could register for camp or use the bathrooms. "The event is fine as it is. If it were a trade show selling products but when you bring in nudity and possible sexual acts, it doesn't work for our facility and doesn't work for us around kids," said Alex Jacobs from Coppermine Management. The "Touch of Flavor" organizers have now teamed up with the National Coalition of Sexual Freedom and they have filed a lawsuit for breach of contract. The contract was signed last October under the Ed Hale Group, but Coppermine took over management in January. "It is our contention that Ed Hale did not have the authority to book something like this is was outside the scope of what he was permitted to do," said Coppermine attorney Susan Green. Organizers for the event say they were forward about what the event entailed from the beginning. "There was nobody trying to hide anything, it was fully out there on the table exactly what kind of conference this was," Wright said. "Touch of Flavor" organizers plan to reschedule the event as soon as they find a venue to host it.
