Parallel Porn Titles

"Hmm. You know, curiously enough, the X-rated version had the same name."

Virtually every popular mainstream movie or TV show will have its title and the rudiments of its plot morphed into a porn video. This fact of adult entertainment is even more certain than death and taxes. It's mandated pursuant to the provisions of Rule 34.

The porn industry really only has one product to sell. That's graphic depictions of people having sex. Naturally this makes things very competitive with each production company looking for an edge in the marketplace. The gay porn industry has its members always trying to stick out, while the straight porn industry is always trying to find a niche to squeeze into. So much like Hollywood itself, it exploits that which is already successful.

There are (of course) entire web sites dedicated to listing actual porn ripoffs of popular media. It's also a common game to take normal media titles and see how many porn titles they can be twisted into. Most of the times the only parody is the title. Curiously, the current hot trend in the porn industry is for high-budget, well-made parodies (well, higher-budget and better-made, anyway) that re-create what they're spoofing with careful attention to detail... but which reject parody titles in favor of just taking the original title and sticking "This Ain't" in front of it or "A XXX Parody" afterwards.

Examples: Star Whores (Episode IV: A New Hole), Muffy the Vampire Layer, Lord of the G-Strings, An Officer and a Gentleman and Golden Retriever, Dr. Buttlove, or; How I Learned To Stop Clenching and Love the Plug, Top Gun (I know, very clever, right?)

One popular misconception is that this is standard practice in the porn industry. While it seems common, it's worth noting that it is a vast minority in the porn out there (as noted above). Most of it goes by the format of [race/gender/defining characteristic of participants] [optional fetish twist] [primary action performed] [number of series], the only fixed order generally being the number. For example, Interracial Anal Dildos 14. However, those titles are rarely much fun to talk about, so the ones that pop out to the general public are these titles listed below.

Of course, there's also an Inverted Trope: don't confuse Jennifer Lopez' chambermaid character having an affair with her hotel's client in Maid In Manhattan (2002) with Vanessa Del Rio's maid character having an affair with her client (and later his son) in Maid in Manhattan (1984)...

See also Rule 34. Just for Pun in action (hur hur hur). Rule of Funny is also involved; why have a potentially squicky actual porn title when you could have one of these and get a small laugh? Compare The Mockbuster.

See Porn Names for the pornification of the actors' names.

Examples (sorted by the media being pornified):

    open/close all folders 

    Anime & Manga 
  • Total Media Agency (known as TMA) loves to do this by producing live-action Parallel Porn Titles of anime series, such as Suzumiya Hahiru no Yuuutsu, Faith/stay night, and so forth. These are most often sought after in the community only for the sake of mocking the ugly stars that conflicts terribly with the surprisingly well done (most of the time) cosplay outfits. Oddly enough, none of them are real puns, just twists on the names for the sake of it.
    • Perhaps the most unsubtle name from them: Clonnad. Sounds similar to "clone", doesn't it?
    • Not to forget their infamous version of the first arc of Higurashi: When They Cry, which was mistaken for the real live action movie by many and panned... Yes, they took a depressing delusion filled arc and made it crappy live action porn while leaving all the scenes intact.
    • They also make titles based of other popular Japanese things like Touhou which for that was named Seihou... which happens to also be the name for a sister game series for Touhou back in the PC-98 era before ZUN moved off to form Shanghai Alice and continue Touhou on Windows. This marks the first time that TMA, intentionally or otherwise, used a Parallel Porn Title whose result was an already existing work.
  • Of course, TMA is not the only Japanese adult film company that produces cosplay porn. Similar companies churn out live-action porno spoofs such as Charge on Themis: Titan Soldiers. That parody features the requisite Mikasa, ugly old men acting as titans, and the Colossal Titan looking like a Power Rangers Monster of the Week reject.
  • There's a hentai anime titled Elfen Laid, but it has nothing to do with Elfen Lied.
  • Possible subversion: The Hills Have Size is real, but it's not what you think - it's just the American dub of a totally unrelated hentai.
  • Foxy Nudes (Hana no Joshi Ana: Newscaster Etsuko).
  • A comprehensive list of punny hentai titles can be found here.
  • Unwired is a U.S. company that specializes in this involving famous anime. Their work includes Sailor and the 7 Ballz (a pornographic crossover of Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z among other famous '90s animes), Star Ballz (like Sailor and the 7 Ballz only set in the Star Wars universe) and Ninja Love (which according to the cover stars Naruto, the Futari wa Pretty Cure girls and Nadia). Unfortunately, most people consider Sailor and the 7 Ballz to be one of the worst pornos they had ever seen.
  • Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt has these every other title, unless they decide to go with a plain old Parody Name.
  • Lingerie Senshi Papillon Rose is an almost-porn spoof of Sailor Moon.
  • The Choose Your Own Adventure-style Sailor Poon: A XXX Interactive Parody. No points for guessing the source being parodied.
  • Ail Maniax has nothing to do with Animaniacs, but it's clear what they were going for.

    Comic Books 
  • Private produced a trilogy of movies based on Sin City called (you guessed it) Sex City.
  • There is a 70's porn called Bat Pussy.
  • Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody, which Andrew Garfield admitted to studying to prepare himself for The Amazing Spider-Man.
  • One of the most successful comic strips in Playboy was Little Annie Fanny, which, as its name suggested, featured an X-rated version of Little Orphan Annie as the protagonist (also a caricature of Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield). Originally drawn by by comic book satirists Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder, the strip ran sporadically from 1962 to 1988.

    Film 
  • Keep in mind, the titles mentioned here are only the most well known ones.
  • Porn on the Fourth of July, White Men Can Hump and A League of Their Moan are all genuine titles.
  • As is The DaVinci Coed.
  • So is Edward Penishands.
    • In an interview Tim Burton once said that the moment it hit him that he really was doing well in Hollywood was when he saw there was a porn film of Edward Scissorhands. He also mentioned meeting the actor who played the title character and shaking hands with him.
    • The book Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town brings up that movie title. It's not clear if the author knew it was a real movie, or if it's just a coincidence.
  • White man does Native American girl in Pocahotass.
  • There is a porn film called What's Love Got To Do With It, and the theaters that showed it had to indicate that it is not the Angela Bassett film about Tina Turner. The porno film had used the title first, which gave it the right to keep it.
  • Bareback Mountain was the title of a number of porn films (both straight and gay) titled to capitalize on the success of Brokeback Mountain. There was also Barebum Mountain as well.
  • The maker/star of Lord of the G-Strings is a twisted, sick little monkey. Her other films include Spider-Babe (where she played Peta Porker/Spider-Babe) and The Girl who Shagged Me. Also, Lust for Dracula which is a Mind Screw even without having a parody porn title. She's since stopped making these lovely little movies, though. Some of her other titles are Play-Mate of the Apes and Dr. Jackyl and Mistress Hyde, which is a total Mind Screw about drugs and sex.
  • In the novel Porno (sequel to Trainspotting) a group of people are making a pornography film simply to prove they can. The title of the film is Seven Rides For Seven Brothers.
  • The landmark gay porn The Boys In The Sand, based off of the landmark gay play/film The Boys in the Band.
  • There was a porn movie made called The Penetrator, which was a reworking of the movie featuring everyone's favorite sociopathic cyborg. The tag line? "I'll come again."
  • Splendor in the Ass.
  • There's at least three pornos whose names are puns of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. One of them is The Rocki Whore Picture Show, complete with musical numbers, which of course removed all traces or suggestions of guy-on-guy sex.
  • Robin Williams says his favorite porn movie is Snatch Adams.
  • Hung Wankenstein. It actually follows the plot of the Mel Brooks movie quite closely, too...
  • Flesh Gordon, which actually got a review in Leonard Maltin's book series at one point.
    • And guess what they did with Dr. Zarkoff's name? Dr. Flexi Jerkoff.
    • Emperor Ming the Merciless is called Emperor Wang the Perverted.
  • The Hole? Seven days after you see The Hole, you turn gay.
  • The Wizard of Ahs. Bad special effects really kills one's libido.
    • There's also a series of klismaphilia videos both titled and starring a guy who calls himself "A/The Wizard of Ass"
  • Pirates of the Caribbean has its own: Pirates. Doesn't sound like a porno to you? Well, it didn't to the managers of at least 6 video stores, who ordered it in bulk, marked it as a family adventure movie. Notably, Pirates is also one of the highest budget porn films ever made. And it has its own sequel, Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge (and is, incidentally, pretty damn funny). It's also rated 'R', begetting the question of whether it counts as porn in the first place. Both films had R-rated versions released which had all the sex scenes removed. The flipside is that both were also released as good old-fashioned, fun adventure-filled porn romps.
  • Hubert Breast, Re-Penetrator. No, really.
  • Jennifer Ate.
  • Danni's Hard Drive does these on a regular basis, a few examples being Cliterfield, The Breast Wing and just recently Indiana Moans and the Kingdom of the Crystal Dildoes.
  • Pleasureville isn't far off from Pleasantville, titularly.
  • There Will Be Cum.
  • Anything on Cinemax is either a play on a popular movie, Cleavagefield, or is a mockery of generic plot lines like investigations, or what not.
  • Driving Miss Daisy Crazy. The Daisy character was younger than in the original, obviously. (The video cover gave the actress's name as, yes, "Jessica Randy". And the male lead was apparently "Organ Freeman".) "Ridin' Miss Daisy" was already taken by an In Living Color! skit as seen below.
  • A Clockwork Orgy, showing that even the classics are given the porno treatment.
  • Forrest Hump. Yeah.
    • Amusingly, there is not an actual porn parody named this, though said name has cropped up in several works of fiction as a joke. There is, however, a parody called FORESKIN Gump.
  • Backside to the Future.
  • Carolina Jones And The Broken Covenant. Indy's daughter is up to some interesting shenanigans. It's basically Carolina trying to retrieve the Ark again... which has shrunk considerably. It's like a sequel to the first, but not, and with a ton of sex and shrieking. "Indiana" even makes an appearance at the end to save the day. Thankfully, he does not actually have sex with anyone.
    • Carolina Jones and the Temple of Poon.
  • The Da Vinci Load: A group of woman called the Priory of Semen try to steal the Mona Lisa because it contains genetic material from him they plan to use to father his child.
    • There's also a softcore version known as The Da Vinci Coed.
  • The Devil Wears Nada...which is also the title of an episode of The Simpsons, oddly.
  • Ass Ventura: Crack Detective.
  • While not exactly a pun on the title, there is such a thing as Snow White and the Three Dwarves.
  • Hannah Does Her Sisters.
  • Phallus in Wonderland, which is actually the title of the GWAR movie, as well as a poem by Gavin Ewart. The pun goes back at least to 1925.
  • Kill Bill was turned into Thrill Bill (straight) and Drill Bill (gay).
  • The Hills Have Thighs and the much more blunt The Whores Have Eyes.
  • The Human Sexipede. Yes, the stitches go elsewhere. And be sure to read the script (as the page itself reads: "If this is SFW where you W, I want to W there too."), it's hilarious.
  • There was a supposedly hilarious porn knock-off of Batman Returns in 1992. It was called Splatman, and it actually followed the rudiments of the movie's plot closely. Sadly, almost no one has seen it because Warner Brothers filed a suit to keep it from being distributed.
  • From Lust Till Dawn or, alternatively From Dusk Till Down.
  • Night of the Giving Head.
  • Top Guns. Notable for the fact that despite replacing Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer with two hot bisexual women, the parody still managed to have less of a homoerotic undertone than the original movie.
  • E.T.: The Porno. It's about as erotic as you would expect.
  • Johnny Mnemonic indeed has a parallel porn title in Joannie Pneumatic.
  • The forced sounding Juranal Park, featuring the Lust World.
    • Well, in German there was some (more natural) "Jurassic Fuck"...until they got sued and had to rename it to "Pornosaurus".
  • In Saw: A Hardcore Parody the Jigsaw Killer turns out to be none other than Ron Jeremy.
  • There's been various A Nightmare on Elm Street parodies, the latest being A Wet Dream on Elm Street and A Nightmare on Twink Street. You can probably guess what they replaced the blades of Freddy's glove with.
  • The Last Whore House on the Left, which had absolutely nothing to do with The Last House on the Left, despite being created by one the stars of that film.
  • Texas' Asshole Massacre (chili and anal sex should never mix) and Texas Dildo Masquerade. And then there's The Texas Vibrator Massacre, which was so nasty it was banned in the UK and Canada.
  • Halloween: XXX Parody and Official Halloween Parody. They were released the same year, but were unrelated outside of both having Lexi Belle as Lynda van der Klok.
  • Yes, they kept the Angry Molesting Trees in Evil Head.
    Shelly: I never knew a tree could fuck so good!
  • Friday the 13th: A Nude Beginning, and the confusingly titled Friday the 13th: The Next Generation, Part 2. And of course there's Official Friday the 13th Parody, which reveals the real reason Jason drowned in Crystal Lake is because he was dragged under by his Gag Penis.
  • PRON: The XXX Parody, which even has effects on par with the original movie!
  • Don't Fuck With Zion. An Israeli made movie — though not much Hebrew there.
  • The green goo flies all over the place in The XXXorcist, and you don't want to know what orifices it shoots out of.
  • The gay-themed Skyball.
  • There is a parody of The King's Speech entitled The King's Piece. A clue: it's not speech therapy the King engages in this time.
  • Inglourious Bitches.
  • Example within the industry: Eight years after Bambi Woods starred in Debbie Does Dallas, Nina Hartley starred in Debbie Duz Dishes.
  • Who Reamed Rosie Rabbit?
  • The Opening of Misty Beethoven was remade as Misty Beethoven: The Musical! (Yes, they went there). Somewhat unusual for this trope because original is also porn.

    Literature 
  • Hairy Twatter, advertised as the first non-gay Harry Potter porn parody.
  • The Humping Games and Younger Games, though both appear to be Shallow Parodies.
  • Presumably due to legal issues, Fifty Shades of Grey: A XXX Adaptation was recalled and re-released as This Isn't Fifty Shades of Grey XXX: This is a Parody. They were still sued. Oh, and there's also 50 Shades of Dylan Ryan, originally titled 50 Shades of Grey: The Lesbian Edition. No Sasha Grey version, surprisingly.
  • There is a vampire-themed gay porn movie called Twinklight. Still a better love story...
  • Carrie had the rather randomly titled Orgy University ("They're all gonna cum on you!").
  • Sex Psycho (the 2003 one).

    Live-Action TV 
  • I'm Chris Mansen from To Catch a Predator XXX.
  • Doctor Who has at least one: Doctor Loo And The Filthy Phaleks.
    • Though the real Doctor Who porno is just called Abducted By The Daleks. Yes, the BBC sued. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like.
    • Not to be confused with Doctor Poo, which, though you may think it would be but hope it wouldn't be, isn't pornographic.
    • There was also Doctor Screw.
    • There's a man on YouTube called The Humpster who's reviewing Doctor Who porn. He's currently up to Abducted by the Daleks, Doctor Loo and the Filthy Fucking Phaleks and Doctor Screw and plans to get to the softcore Zygons. If you're curious, Doctor Screw is the only video series with any real effort put into it.
      The Humpster: Thirteen motherfucking episodes! Thirteen! They made a whole motherfucking series of this!
    • Brazzers' The Doctor.
    • Doctor Whore.
    • Also, Zygon, which has Zygon sex and was officially licensed.
  • There's a Married... With Hormones available and it also has an sequel along with two more porn spoofs like Married... With She Males and This Ain't Married With Children XXX. Click the SFW video (they cut the porn parts out) and be disturbed by the porn spoof of a Frank Sinatra classic tune.
  • The late '80s also gave us Falcon Breast and DallASS.
  • "Desperate Househusbands" and "Desperate Houseboys" (both gay), there is also a lot of Housewives Desperate for stuff.
  • The uncreative trend of simply putting "Not" in front of an existing title has surfaced recently, leading to titles like Not the Bradys XXX, Not Bewitched XXX, Not the Cosbys, and the list goes on.
  • There is a gay porn movie called Jersey Score. It's actually pretty good.
  • Everybody Does Raymond
  • Sex Trek. There are at least nine productions of such, according to Memory Alpha.
  • The forgettable Muffy the Vampire Layer and Buffy the Vampire Layer, and now Buffy the Vampire Slayer XXX: A Parody. Unlike those first two, that one actually tries to be accurate to the show, even including characters like Jenny Calendar and Harmony.
  • Johnny Carson had two porn flick titles he often used as the Tea Time Movie, Mondo Squatto and ''Gidget's Night on an Aircraft Carrier.
  • Reno 911! was pornified. Apparently they didn't change the title. Which would be impressive, given that the original show is already considered as porn in some countries.
  • There was a pornographic parody of Scrubs made, which Zach Braff himself was amused by it so much that he endorsed it in interviews.
  • A bit disturbingly, the kid-oriented Game Center CX has one in the form of Ero-Game Center SEX.
  • It's not clear how the Official Sons of Anarchy parody achieved official status.
  • Robin Williams closed his Weapons of Self-Destruction HBO special with a routine about porn spoofs of his films, culminating in his imitation of a porn version of Popeye.
  • There's been a few of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, including CSI: Miami (unfortunately, there is no character named Fellatio Caine).
  • Unsurprisingly, This Ain't Glee XXX removed all the non-female gay characters.
  • Game of Thrones became Game of Bones (though Game of Moans and Game of Thongs were also considered) but shied away from portraying Brother-Sister Incest, leading George R. R. Martin to ponder how he could have a series that's more dirty than its porn version. Indeed the opening scene involves Varys and Tyrion pointing out that a porn spoof is hardly necessary, as the HBO series has enough gratuitous sex and nudity as it is.
  • Now they're making them out of game shows. Behold: The Newlywed Game XXX: A Porn Parody!
    • Of course, Hustler just had to come around and do This Ain't Jeopardy! XXX''. However, this one is mostly a Clip Show containing sex scenes from other films by the company, using a video category called "Caught in the Act" as a framing device. They got the obligatory "What's a hoe?" reference, though.
  • Because it was just begging to be made, American Horror Story: Coven has spawned American Whore Story: Witches in Heat.

    Music 

    Professional Wrestling 
  • Val Venis, WWE's resident wrestling porn star, seems to have a resume composed entirely of these titles. One angle in particular had him cutting a promo on Ken Shamrock from the set of a movie he was making entitled Shaving Ryan's Privates, which co-starred Ken's sister Ryan (Shaving Ryan's Privates is a real softcore gay porn movie). Another saw him rattle off a Long List of them when he met Shelton Benjamin's mother backstage, and she couldn't shake the feeling that she knew him from somewhere.
  • Wrestle Crap's The Death of WCW book notes, you could tell wrestling was truly mainstream again when the NWO got a porn parody (Nude World Order).
  • Given Chyna became a porn actress, they had to put her in a WWE-styled movie, Chyna is Queen of the Ring. And Hilarity Ensues (along with euphemisms and puns) when a wrestling website decides to review it, describing each scene as it was a match...

    Theater 

    Video Games 

    Western Animation 
  • American Dad! XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody, featuring things like rough sex between Roger and Francine, and a messy gangbang involving Haley, Snot, Barry, and Toshi. Now they've done Family Guy. One can only imagine the Quagmire-related horrors...
  • The Simpsons: The XXX Parody. Everyone is yellow, and there's the Crack Pairing of Moe and Cookie Kwan. Years before, there was the even more nightmarish Los Porno Sinson: La Iniciacion de Bart from Argentina.
  • Scooby-Doo: The XXX Parody is praised for being faithful to the original show - despite lacking the title character.
  • This Ain't The Smurfs XXX. Yes, really.
  • Beaver & Buttface, and the lesser-known Beaver and Butt Cheeks.
  • The Flintbones and its successor, The Flintstones: A XXX Parody. Dubbed in Spanish as Los Pichapiedra.
  • Las Tortugas Pinjas is a Argentinean low-budget porn film made in The Nineties as a Affectionate Parody (?!) of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, dubbed in Latin America as "Las Tortugas Ninjas". Pinjas would be a portmanteau of "Ninja" with "pija", Spanish older-than-they-think slang for the johnson (though The Cinema Snob translated it as "eeew!"). Available only in VHS and almost an Urban Legend in Buenos Aires.
    • Also, there's Pollémon, a porn movie with a Pokémon reference in its title. Its label reads "Vive las fascinantes aventuras de Pollachu" (Live the fascinating adventures of Pollachu), a portmanteau of "Pikachu" and "polla", another slang for the male fallus. Ah, if you are wondering, the movie has nothing to do with Pokémon.
  • SpongeKnob SquareNuts, which was first released on a TubePorn site by the director, possibly because he could not find a distributor willing to be held accountable for unleashing it upon the world. FIRMY GRASP IT!.
  • It's Kyle's eighteenth birthday! Not South Park XXX.
    • The Yaoi Fangirls of South Park had a fit when they found out that it WASN'T a gay porno.
  • Yes, it exists and there is nothing you can do about it. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic got a porno called "My Little Porny: Fucking is Magic". Yes, it's as bad as you'd expect it to be.

    Real Life 
  • Who's Nailin' Serra Paylin?
  • Zodiac Rapist, probably the only porno based (really loosely, admittedly) on a real life Serial Killer.
  • There is a porno called Tranny Claus which is shemale Christmas-themed porn including midgets cast as the Elves. Wow.

    Other 
  • Hello Titty is completely real and even has a sequel.
  • There was a line of porn films named after Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors.

  • An episode of Think The Unthinkable had Sophie going through Jed's DVD collection. As well as another sighting of Good Will Humping, she correctly surmises that his version of Free Willy isn't about a whale.
  • An Australian skit spoofing the Reverend Fred Nile had him entering a video store to make sure they weren't selling anything dirty. A senior citizen with bad eyesight slowly reads out the titles of the movies she's picked off the shelves. As they appear to be family comedies they all get Nile's approval and he leaves. The store owner then rings up the titles which turn out to be porn movies, e.g. Herbie Goes Bananas was actually Herpies Goes Bananas.
