'Porn king' Ron Jeremy disses video games

GamingOh, world-famous pornographic actor Ron Jeremy. Could it be you were simply kidding when you called video games a 'far worse influence' than porn at CES last week?

It's so hard to tell. I mean, didn't you recently sponsor an adult-rated video game called Bonetown? Pot and kettle, sir?

Ron Jeremy as 'Hornio'

According to PC Mag, you made your anti-gaming slur at a CES panel last week entitled 'The Great Porn Debate', initially trading quips with an anti-pornography activist who accused you of communicating solely via fax machine.

Like a dulcet-tongued poet, you outlined the similarities between competitive athletics and adult entertainment by invoking the hauntingly eloquent expression: "World of sport versus world of spurts." You went on to boldly imply that the porn industry really ought to figure out how to properly cater to under-18-year-olds.

And then you turned on the video games industry.

"We don't want kids to watch porn," you said. "Though if they do, there are far worse influences out there, like video games. [Studies have] found that violent video games are a much bigger negative influence on kids."

CES news

It may be. Make love not war, they say, and more games are about war than that other, unmentionable thing.

Then again, your hands aren't exactly spotless.

After all, you did star in that 1993 classic 'Super Hornio Bros' as a computer programmer ("It's-a-me, Squeegie!") who gets sucked, Tron-like, into a kooky video game world, where you proceed to fight game characters and... well, let's just leave it at fight, shall we?

'Super Hornio Brothers'

What, you blame video games for that too?
