The porn parody is a genre that knows no bounds. Among the thousands of flicks that fit this description are a dirty Sarah Palin movie, a pornographic version of The Dark Knight, and even — sorry, Charles Dickens — A Tale of Two Titties. For some reason, porn directors are particularly excited about television, mocking up everything from Jersey Shore to 30 Rock. And yet, despite knowing this, we still manage to be perplexed by the trailer that’s currently circulating for Breaking Bad XXX. This version takes place after California bans pornography (as if) and finds a not-at-all-convincing Walter White embarking on a sexually explicit quest to save the adult film industry. No meth is involved — which, if you ask us, is a major missed opportunity — although we do, curiously enough, get the somber scene where Walt finds out he has cancer. Also, Jesse is a hot former student named “Jessie” and there appears to be a Ron Jeremy cameo. Click through to watch the nudity-free trailer and marvel at the absurdity of it all. … Read More

The Spanish martyr was known for her unique brand of mysticism — a rapturous state that sounds a whole lot like the throes of sexual passion.

In his mixed media works, the adult actresses’ bodies are rendered as simple, gray drawings; the real focus is the swirling, multicolored storm of revelation engulfing each woman’s head and chest. See Jenna Jameson and friends explode into religious passion after the jump. … Read More
Four years after it was banned from US release for its explicit content, Destricted brings together creative — and graphic — musings on sex and porn by artists including Marilyn Minter, Matthew Barney, and Richard Prince.
Among the DVD’s eight film shorts are Barney’s “Hoist,” a decidedly erotic take on man vs. machine; Minter’s “Green Pink Caviar,” featuring a woman kissing, sucking, and licking in extreme close-up; Prince’s “House Call,” a revision of a voyeuristic 1970s porno; and Larry Clark’s “Impaled,” for which he interviewed Gen Y-ers on their experiences with porn, then presented the reality of their fantasies. Together, the films are sexy, disturbing, and beautiful, all at once. … Read More
