List Rules Vote up the porn parody facts that you find most stimulating.

If you’re a person who spends any amount of time on the Internet, then you’ve seen a trailer, or at least a PG still for a porn parody of a property that you love, be it Star Wars, Scooby Doo, or Pirates of the Caribbean. But you probably don’t have the slightest idea how the porn industry really works, let alone how porn parodies are made. It turns out that porn parodies are a big business and can - with smart planning and a lot of luck - be very lucrative. Behind the scenes, porn parodies are like any small business that’s trying to survive in the online market, just with a lot more sex. What you’re about to read is a collection of mostly SFW porn parody facts that show just how interesting the world of filming porn based on popular properties can be.

Films with titles like Scrotemon (yes, there are cartoon porn parodies) and Down On Abbey seem like they begin and end with the name, but it turns out that there’s a lot of time, effort, and money going into the creation of films that people spend anywhere from five to 20 minutes watching while doing whatever it is that they do while watching porn parody. Aside from gaining some knowledge about the production of these films, you’ll also learn about who is searching for what and which country loves porn parodies more than any other place in the world.

Keep reading and vote up the most interesting things you didn’t know about porn parodies. Then go wash your hands.

Before the Internet was a thing, porn makers knew that the easiest way to get a little press was to attach themselves - like leaches - to a more known quantity, which is why so many Oscar-winning films have porn parodies vaguely based around the premise of the film. Or at the very least, there are porn parodies that mimick the film's title. Because it's a crime in California to not list off porn parody titles whenever you have the chance, here are a few of the bestBreast Side StoryMy Bare LadyOne Flew Over the Cuckold's Nest, and Sperms of Endearment.

Pornhub Got Into Original Content Thanks to Full House

If you don't know, or you're pretending not to know because you're reading this with your significant other, Pornhub is basically the YouTube of porn. Anyone can upload content to Pornhub, even if they don't own it, and you can watch it and do whatever it is that you do while you watch porn. But there's no real money to be made from putting ads on top of user-uploaded videos, which is why the site enlisted Lee Roy Myers, the guy who produced Strokemon: The XXX Parody and Game of Bones: Winter is Cumming, to create their first piece of original content, a Full House porn parody that follows Handy and his two friends Blowey and Uncle Jizzy as they all fool around with the rest of the cast: BJ, Stuffme, Muffchelle, and Kimmy Gobbler.

Porn Titles Have Become Less Interesting Over The Years


Porn Titles Have Become Less I... is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list 16 Weird Facts You Didn't Know About The Making Of Porn Parodies

If you aren't a regular viewer of porn, or if you don't keep up with the industry, then you probably think that every video has a fun name like Dr. F*ckenstein or The Erotic Adventures of Dickman & Throbbin, which is an early superhero porn parody that features John Holmes as the titular Dickman. But over the years titles have become less overtly punny and simply tell people what they're getting. While there are a few outliers like Gnardians of the Galaxy, most porn parodies are more in line with the more modern The Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody. Did the industry use up all of the best puns? Or did people begin to associate silly titles with embarrassing sexual entertainment?

Despite the financial failures of some porn parodies, a few companies have been able to make a good amount of money by creating different versions of their films. Digital Playground, the company that produced Pirates and Pirates II (parodies of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) spent about $400k and $800k for the original and the sequel, respectively (as opposed to the $50k that usually goes into a bigger porn shoot). In addition, rather than simply release them as is, they released softcore, R, and PG versions of the film (which is available in Japan but difficult to track down online), which were distributed through a variety of channels. You could get the films through hotel pay-per-view, adult cable channels, and even in Blockbuster video when that was still a thing. Pirates was also released around the globe in multiple languages. Places like Japan, Brazil, France, Germany, UK, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Mexico, and Italy all received their own versions of the hardcore, softcore, and mainstream cuts.
