Ep. 60 - Porn vs Hollywood

Aaron and Justin do a quick recap of great moments in porn history (from Roman Erotic art found at Pompeii to the earliest surviving silent porn film, El Sartorio [1907]) and then get into films that blur the line between "legitimate films" and porn: The Funeral (1996), Brown Bunny (2003), Anatomy of Hell (2004), Romance (1999), Battle in Heaven (2005), Irreversible (2002), Baise-Moi (2000), and Short Bus (2006). 

Then we discuss the wild world of the porn parody: The Big Lebowski, Star Trek, The Silence of the Lambs, Avatar (in 3D), The Human Sexipede, The Player's Club, Red Riding Hood, Pron, Rocki Whore Picture Show, Scream, Basic Instinct, Scooby-Doo, Slumdog Millionaire, Booty Shop, Justice League, Batman, Boyz in da Hood, The Dark Knight and The Simpson’s (Live Action)...yes, you read that right.  We also touch on the birth of modern porn in the late 1960's and early 1970's, the Celebrity Sex Tape phenomenon and trying to "unwatch" horrific things like Two Girls One Cup (one of the most notorious porn scenes in history).  We finish up with the money shot news of porn coming to the street markets of Iraq with titles like Cheap Meat and The Rape of the Coeds.
