Porn Phenomenon

Porn is about to inch further into the mainstream with an upcoming documentary about "Deep Throat." (I copied that line straight from the article. I cannot take credit for that awful pun).

Universal is releasing "Inside Deep Throat," a documentary about the legendary 1972 picture's "social impact" and "cultural legacy," in February. The flick, premiering at Sundance next month, features commentary from the likes of Erica Jong, Gore Vidal and Norman Mailer.

It's the latest in a recent wave of mainstream porn phenomena, including Timothy Greenfield-Sanders book of XXX star portraits and Jenna Jameson's best-seller, "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star."

1 Cultural legacy? Are they for real with that? As for 'How to Make Love Like a Porn Star' that should be a short book. Wear skimpy outfit when the plumber arrives, go "Oh! Oh! Oh!" often, lay there and moan. Repeat often.

2 I have yet to decide if I think it's a good or bad thing that porn is inching (ha!) into mainstream so much these days. I'm all conflicted. VH-1 even had a show all about the "Golden Age" of porn not too long ago. And now, HBO has a series all about the industry. On a related note, I used to work with a fellow who moved to L.A. and paid his way through college by working as a porno actor in straight-porn films. His porno name? Gregor Samsa (I'm not kidding).

3 Well, Kevin, I knew a guy in Evansville who did some gay porn, under the name "Mighty Joe Young." He did have a very large penis, and was ultimately fired from the porn gig because his penis was so large, that along with the pressure of the camera, he couldn't keep it hard. I am not making this up. And we all know it's all about the money shot.
