Porn Names

Leave a comment

After my post yesterday about pen/porn names, I’ve been thinking about porn names, so here’s a post just on those.

Adult film stars sometimes carry over to mainstream media, most recently with Belle Knox being a Duke University student—but also others: Linda Lovelace from “Deep Throat” (which became the code name of the person giving info to Woodward and Bernstein in the Watergate scandal), John Holmes, Ron Jeremy, and Jenna Jameson. There’s a lot more, of course: listverse.com has a list of their “Top 10 Most Famous Adult Film Stars.”

Missing from that list is one who I remember in the news years back, one with a kind of name that just sticks with you because it’s pretty darn clever: Long Dong Silver. As his Wikipedia page says: “He received new fame in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate in 1991, as Anita Hill alleged that Thomas had mentioned to her that he was a viewer of Long Dong Silver’s films.” But that was a mere mention, so I guess he didn’t have the staying power (so to speak) of a Ron Jeremy.

There are some funny porn names out there, and there’s a list on the tech-media-tainment blog. A nod to George Castanza’s “Buck Naked” suggestion for an adult film star’s name on Seinfeld. Some other names from the lists: Antonio Benderass, Miles Long, Naughtia Childs, and Debi Jointed.

(As an aside, thesmokingjacket.com has an eye-opening article: “Five Unsexy Reasons You Wouldn’t Want to Be a Male Porn Star.”)

Then there’s the way to generate your own porn star name by taking your first pet’s name as the first name, and then the street you grew up on as the last name. Instead of using these from my real life, here’s a made-up mash-up: Ziggy Main.

What about some other names? For a military-themed movie, there could be Major Booty. A Doctor Who parody could star Doctor WOW. A plot with intrigue in the castle could have His Royal Hardness. A story about a hair-growth formula gone horribly wrong could star Hairy Harry.

But what about the behind-the-scenes team? Do they take on fake names, too? Maybe the guy in charge of lighting could be Stan The Illuminator. The guy holding the microphone boom could be Boom Boom Dude. One of the fluffers could be Muff n’ Fluff.

Any other fun porn names you’d like to add, dear reader?
