The adult film industry is a force to be reckoned with. Although revenue has plummeted since the ‘golden age’ in the 70s, with the market moving increasingly online, consistent profits demonstrate the veracity of that old adage, ‘sex sells’.
While amateur ‘cam’ movies and tubes may dominate the adult film industry, one genre of feature length adult film has actually risen in popularity over the past decade: the adult film parody. Adult film parodies have become so popular that the Adult Video News awards, the biggest awards in the adult film industry, even have a category for this genre. Perhaps the popularity of these films is less about the, ahem, gratification of their content and more about our curiosity we feel in watching favorite pop culture characters get down and dirty with each other in at once familiar and outlandish situations. The popularity of ‘fanfic’ demonstrates the eager audience for just this sort of entertainment.
For better or for worse, if there’s a market for this fetish it’s bound to be catered to, and there are literally hundreds of adult film parodies available on DVD and all over the internet. It’s not just popular big-budget blockbusters that are parodied: Even sitcoms and political events have been spoofed. Some of these adult film parodies even have impressively high production values – although not in the scope of Hollywood blockbuster budgets, of course. At the upper end, these films cost in the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Hustler’s This Ain’t Avatar XXX is believed to be the most expensive adult film ever made with a budget between $100,000 to $500,000 range. Similarly, Man of Steel XXX is said to have had a budget of $100,000.
The following are fifteen slightly less impressive parodies, with characters we’d never expect to find in these somewhat startling positions. You might never look at your favourite childhood cartoons in the same way again…
15. 30 rock: A XXX Parody
This adult film parody of the sitcom 30 Rock stars Lisa Ann as Liz Lemon. Her resemblance to Tina Fey undoubtedly played a part in her landing the role; Ann also played Sarah Palin, often parodied by Fey, in an adult film.
The adult film version of 30 Rock failed to evoke the laughs of the sitcom on which it was based. Adult Video News said the film was “blandly-written and at times just plain boring comedy”,
14. The Office : A XXX Parody
There’s no Michael in this adult film version of the sitcom The Office. Instead, blonde buxom babe Ashlynn Brooke plays sexy Michelle, the boss at Dunder Mifflin. Adult film star James Deen plays the adult film version of Jim in the film while Dane Cross is Dwayne – a parody of Dwight.
13. She Hulk XXX
There was always a certain sex appeal to former WWE superstar Chyna when she was in the ring. After she released a sex tape and posed in playboy she even got offers to star in a few adult film parodies.
Chyna was covered in green body paint to play She Hulk in Avengers: A XXX Parody and later, She Hulk XXX.
12. The Sex Files: A Dark XXX Parody
This adult film parody is for those ever wondering what it would be like to see Mulder and Scully get intimate with each other. There was always a question if Mulder and Scully actually slept together on The X-files, but there’s certainly no wondering here.
11. Tosh P**n Oh
Of all the things to get an adult film parody. few would have expected Comedy Central’s Tosh.0, which is hosted by comedian Daniel Tosh.
This adult film parody features a role by adult film legend Peter North.
11. Pee Wee’s XXX Adventure
Vivid entertainment’s Pee Wee’s XXX Adventure is a perfect example of how to ruin the childhoods of ’80s kids. We highly doubt anyone was asking for an adult version of Tim Burton’s classic Pee Wee Herman movie Pee Wee’s Big Adventure… Yet, for comedy value, this one was surprisingly well-received.
9. This Ain’t the Smurfs XXX Parody
Hustler’s adult film parody of the Smurfs is a strange live-action film that features bad acting, bad costumes and plenty of blue paint.
Lexi Belle stars as Smurfette, and there’s plenty of “smurfing” going on.
8. Official Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Parody XXX
90s sitcom the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was filled with laughs and regularly focused on Will’s exploits to get with the honies.
The adult film version of the sitcom does the same, except this time viewers are treated to what goes on behind closed doors at the Banks’ residence.
7. Not the Cosbys XXX
Staunch defender of morality Bill Cosby was likely none too pleased with this adult film parody version of his popular sitcom The Cosby Show. This adult film features Denise, played by adult film beauty Misty Stone, who’s hoping to lose her V-card at a sexy slumber party. The parody proved popular, and a sequel titled Not the Cosbys XXX 2 was made.
6. Porks and Recreation: The XXX Parody
The sitcom Parks and Recreation lampooned the adult film industry in an episode called “Bailout,” which featured an adult film version of the episode’s events called “Too Big to Nail.”
However, the adult film industry soon made a parody of its own, Porks and Recreation: The XXX Parody featured Aiden Starr as the adult film version of Leslie Knope.
5. Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?
Saturday Night Live wasn’t the only show having a field day mocking Sarah Palin’s vice presidential run. Hustler parodied the controversial politician too with the film Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?, which starred Lisa Ann as Sarah Palin.
4. Scooby-Doo: A XXX Parody
When Scooby-Doo goes missing at a Halloween party, the gang must return to the mansion where he was lost in this live action adult film parody.
Those wanting to see a sexy version of Velma and Daphne are treated to adult film stars Bobbi Starr and Bree Olson dressed to look like sexy versions of the popular cartoon characters. Thankfully, Scooby-Doo does not get in on the action.
3. This Ain’t Curb Your Enthusiasm XXX
This Ain’t Curb your Enthusiasm XXX is the wish fulfillment of absolutely no one. It is highly unlikely anybody who would want to see Larry David in explicit situations…
However, if you’re overwhelmed with a strange desire to see an adult film version of one of the greatest sitcoms in the last ten years then you’re in luck. This film is not pretty, pretty, pretty good.
2. The Simpsons – The XXX Parody: Marge and Homer’s Sex Tape
The Simpsons – The XXX Parody: Marge and Homer’s Sex Tape is meant to be sexy and funny but it comes off as, rather, creepy and disturbing.
Unlike Marge Simpson’s appearance in Playboy, this film is live action, and all the actors are covered in a thick layer of yellow paint. Messy.
1. Spongeknob Squarepants
The adult film version of Spongebob Squarepants is cleverly titled Spongeknob Squarepants, and it’s all sorts of disturbing. The film parody is not a cartoon; it’s live action and it features one of the worst Spongebob costumes you have ever seen, in ways you never wanted to see Spongebob Squarepants.
