(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Much like Mikey and that old yarn about pop rocks and Coke, the porn parody has become a pop culture staple, as has StuffMagazine.com's annual Report Card running down the best of the best for the year. This year the hot men's mag partnered with WantedList.com to offer a new category: Best Porn Parody Title!
"We had been meeting with Stuff Magazine for a few months to try to think of something fun and interesting to do together," says Anh Tran, co-founder of WantedList.com. "So we got to thinking - of all of the thousands of titles that get released, what were the best titles that parodied a mainstream movie? Personally, I salute the studios that can come out with both a great erotic product and a title that can differentiates itself from the rest of the field."
The list of five was culled from reader voting on StuffMagazine.com, where the WantedList crew offered their top ten favorite titles of the past year. And whose title, according to StuffMagazine.com readers, was the best parody? The number one spot went to Dude, Where's My Dildo?
"We've always tried to provide adult entertainment that appeals to women and couples, and parodies with a hint of comedy seem to do just that," says Carolyn Ward, sales manager for K-Beech Video. "Connoisseurs who enjoy Dude, Where's My Dildo? may also enjoy Honey, I Blew...Everybody!, the Slutty Professor and XXX Trek: The Final Orgasm."
The second slot went to Jules Jordan's aptly named Weapons of Ass Destruction.
As for future collaborations with one of the world's top men's magazines, Tran is optimistic.
"This isn't the first time Stuff has done something with the adult industry," he notes. "The more people can see that this industry can be both erotic and have a great sense of humor the more we can move away from the image that all we're all just a bunch heartless, dirty capitalists 'corrupting the morals of America.' Every time I hear Dude, Where's My Dildo? Or Weapons of Ass Destruction I have to chuckle. So will the rest of America and they'll do it without blushing or feeling embarrassed.
"We're just glad that the people over at Stuff Magazine appreciate our sense of humor the way we appreciate theirs," Tran adds. "We're hoping to do more projects in the future with Stuff that can bring out the lighter side of porn."
