Seeing as porn is often a taboo subject in a lot of social situations, it makes for a great topic in comedy. I came across a few jokes and stand-up comedy routines on the subject that I found pretty entertaining.

This hilarious man is Simon Amstell. For those of you that live alone like myself, I think you’ll find this very relatable.

This lovely lady is comedian, Amy Schumer. She may have a point about the predictability of a lot of porn videos… And if you like her style, she has a show on Comedy Central that you should check out.

The last clip you guys need to check out is from Jake Weisman. He’s a pretty good follow on Twitter @weismanjake. While this video is very funny, I think it also raises a fair point. A strong argument against the porn industry is that it creates unrealistic expectations for sex in real life. Well doesn’t Hollywood create just as ridiculous expectations for falling in love in a lot of mainstream movies? Yet those movies are never looked at in a negative light by society.

And now for a few of my favorite random jokes on porn…

  • “My girlfriend is a porn star. She is going to be so pissed off when she finds out.”
  • “How the fuck am I meant to stay with the same girl for the rest of my life when I can’t even wank over the same porn twice?”
  • “I must be so lucky, all the beautiful girls that message me when I sign into a free porn site are from my home town. What are the odds?”

New York Magazine plugs my book ‘Ron Jeremy: The Hardest [Working] Man in Show Business.

HarperCollins’s Book Expo cocktail party Saturday night, on the Fox film lot (thanks, Rupert Murdoch), was designed to make every last bookseller feel like a star, its red carpet lined with thirties-style stock-character paparazzi. There were a few genuine quasi-celebrities in attendance: Audra McDonald, Muriel Hemingway, Kevin Nealon, and. … Ron Jeremy? Wearing a black blazer, a T-shirt reading “Pay to Play,” dark-gray jeans, and blue Crocs over bare feet, the world’s most famous male porn star was deep in conversation with a couple of Borders sales reps when we caught up with him.

Jeremy was at BEA for his book, Hardest (Working) Man in Show Business, now in paperback, which “didn’t get a single bad review,” and, he frequently reminded us, is a best seller. “Call me anything on the planet but you have to add on ‘and … a best-selling author,'” he said, insisting it’ll be in his obituary. “‘He was this, this, this, this, a lot of dick jokes, now he’s really stiff, and best-selling author.'”

Someday I’ll have to let you read my obit. The double entendres are so fast and furious it’s like Oscar Wilde wrote the thing.
