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.
  • 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 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.


  • 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 Tryion 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, which a category called "Caught in the Act" is used as a framing device for. 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.


    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...

    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.

    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.

  • 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.


    Card Games 

    Comic Books 
  • In Transmetropolitan, Spider Jerusalem's enemies try to make people stop taking him seriously by putting out a porn flick called I Hump It Here (the title of his column being "I Hate It Here"). Technically that wasn't his enemies, just all kinds of opportunists flocking to the money-making machine - after Spider's assistant Yelena sold them license to use his name and likeness. Spider wasn't amused.
  • Garth Ennis loves these. In both Chronicles of Wormwood and Kev there is a scene with a lot of porn videos on display with such titles as The Hunt for Red Cocktober, Starsky and Crotch, Baredevil, and so on.
  • In a comic by Michael Kupperman, an old man grants a boy special powers when he says SKREWPA, which is an acronym...
    Old Man: The S is for Sperms of Endearment! The K is for King Dong! The R is for Romancing the Bone! The E is for E.T.3: The Extra Testicle! The...
    Billy: ?! Those are all porn movie titles!
    Old Man: I've been in this cave alone too long... I've forgotten the real list...
  • Silex and the City has primitive porno films titled Diplodocul ("Diplodocass") and La famille Pierrafuck ("The Fuckstones").

     Fan Works 



    Live-Action TV 

  • 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.

    Web Comics 

    Web Original 
  • A few in Cracked':
  • Name That Porno is a collection of those.
  • Something once had a Photoshop contest where people altered the titles and cover art for Harry Potter novels, including "Hairy Pooter and the Chamber of Secretions."
    • They also had two "Porn Versions of Classic Films" contests.
  • The web series Watch Blue Movies is about a porn studio that specialises in making these kinds of films. You've got G.I. Ho, The Porn Identity, Forrest Hump and so on. The first episode is about a porn parody of The Dark Knight, but no title is given.
  • In the Gorillaz interactive online game Plastic Beach, the player can ask 2D if he's bored and 2D informs the player that he has movies to watch. Some of the titles he lists are this trope. He describes them as "a bit random, but very, very, very watchable."
  • WikiPorno's Best Porn Movie Names page has a whole bunch of these, and it's incomplete. They don't even have the entire Star Whores series listed.
  • When reviewing Doomsday Machine, The Nostalgia Critic noted the film practically turned into a porno as there were only a few people left after an apocalypse, and their "forced to give in to their animal urges". He then lists the top 10 porn titles the movie should've had, including "Babe Runner", "Star Whores", and "Spaceballs".
  • In Zero Punctuation's review of Silent Hill: Downpour, Yahtzee expresses his desire for the Silent Hill series to end altogether so that game developers can move on to create new psychological horror IPs, jokingly suggesting "Scary Things in Dirty Rooms" as a possible title. In the closing credits, he remarks, "Watch out for the porn parody Dirty Things in Scary Rooms."
  • The The Brian And Jill Show has this whenever porn film critic Sir Phalluster Slideright III makes an appearance. The first time started with Ben & Jerry flavors ("Pop My Cherry Garcia", "Peanut Butter Double D-Cup") and moving on to actual movie titles ("Beaverly Hills Cop", "Men in Black Men" and "Indiana Joan and the Black Hole of Manboo").
  • In one Black Nerd Comedy video, Andre pretended to be Reggie Fils-Aime and announced that Nintendo was bringing porn to the Wii U, including PokeMeMon, Donkey Dong, Dikmin, Barely Legal Icarus, Wario Hard Ware, Pilotwangs, Kirby Eats Yoshi, StarFux and Raper Mario, among others. My body is ready.
  • The Cinema Snob, a parody of pretentious film critics, frequently finds himself reviewing this sort of movie. A particularly notorious (and lazily-named) example is E.T. the Porno, which the Snobs' actor Brad Jones found hilarious enough that he did an April Fools' sketch about remaking it, where his character- who is producer, actor and director- eventually admits that he the only scene he actually wanted to film was himself as E.T. doing a sex scene.
    Oancitizen: Please, no Titties Andronicus? No Glory Hole Anus? No A Midsummer Night's Cream?
    The Cinema Snob: That one actually exists.
  • In online sketch comedy group LoadingReadyRun's video 'Format War', Graham HAS to have Sweeney Knobs: Demon Boner of Boob Street on Blu-ray, to get a feel for the story they're going for. He also can't wait for 300...People Having Sex to come out. Matt is sure Blu-ray will fail and Graham will have to get another copy of The Spiderwank Chronicles.
