Porno actor Ron Jeremy spoke at a church in Hudsonville, Michigan over the weekend to hundred of people who turned up for his talk, a double bill with California pastor Craig Gross, a minister who tries to help porn addicts.
The local NBC affiliate, WoodTV reported:
Jeremy, who was raised Jewish, spoke briefly about his life in the industry; admitting he still works and has been with more than 2,000 women. Throughout the years, however, he has had several personal experiences that have brought him closer to God; one of them was surviving a car wreck with the late pastor/comedian Sam Kinison.
“The car didn’t hit a single tree. It was a forest…[the car] missed every tree at 60 miles an hour upside down,” Jeremy said.
But Jeremy holds the belief that pornography and religion can co-exist.
“I don’t think the Lord above has a problem with consenting adults, having consenting romance, for consenting adults to watch. Period. But again the whole sex outside marriage, The Bible has got a problem with that and that’s where me and most of the people here are never going to agree on that,” Jeremy said.
He added, “The vast majority of porn stars believe in God.”
Jeremy also played piano and harmonica for attendees.
They need a good name for this, like “The Ron Jeremy Effect” or “The Hedgehog Syndrome” or something:
A small Dutch study, released Wednesday, set out to identify the psychology that leads women to willingly, and even enthusiastically, engage in sexual activities despite the ick factor. The results, published online in the journal PLoS ONE, indicate that arousal overrides feelings of disgust and facilitates a woman’s desire to do something that a woman who is not aroused might find flat-out repulsive.
“Women [who] were sexually aroused were more willing to touch and do initially disgusting tasks,” study co-author Charmaine Borg, a researcher in the department of clinical psychology and experimental psychopathology at the University of Groningen in The Netherlands, told The Huffington Post.
Borg and her colleagues separated 90 female university students into three equal groups: one watched “female friendly erotica;” one watched a video of extreme sports meant to get them excited, but in a non-sexual way; and one watched a video of a train, meant to elicit a neutral response.
The women were then given 16 tasks, most of them unappealing. They were asked to take a sip from a cup of juice that had a large (fake) insect in it, to wipe their hands with a used tissue and to take a bite from a cookie that was sitting next to a living worm. The women were also asked to perform several sex-related tasks, like lubricating a vibrator.
Women in the “aroused group” said they found both the unpleasant tasks and the sex-related tasks less disgusting than women in the other groups. They also completed the highest percentage of the activities, suggesting that sexual arousal not only decreases feelings of disgust, but directly affects what women are willing to do, the study shows.
This “repulsion reflex” as it might be called, is there to inhibit women from having sex with men with poor hygiene, getting sexual diseases or I guess from being on the receiving end of some inferior baby batter. Or not.
The thing I kept thinking about, though, as I read this item, was this utterly genius bit by the godlike comedian and national treasure, Doug Stanhope:
Best of all, I could only find one double entendre in the advertising copy. That makes it even funnier for me. Pure class!. Order your bottle of Ron de Jeremy here.
