6 Non-Porn Porn Movies

Everyone loves porn stars. That’s why they’re called porn “stars” and not porn “pariahs,” porn “lepers,” or porn “disgusting outcasts.” And with Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star out now on Blu-ray™ & DVD, you might want to brush up on your non-porn porn. Here are some good old fashioned entertainments that aren’t porn, but feature plenty of porn stars, content related to porn, etc. – basically everything short of actual pornography. Enjoy!

Boogie Nights

PT Anderson‘s glorious epic about the world of 70s porn represents a bygone era in porn. This isn’t about people anonymously grunting all over each other, this is about when porn had a plot, man. And those plots revolved around young people with giant penises, like Mark Wahlberg’s Dirk Diggler. Watch it, and shed a single tear for the departure of the glory days or pornography. At least I hope that’s a tear.

The Girlfriend Experience

Here’s a movie that doesn’t just have a cameo from a porn star, but a full-blown starring role from none other than America’s Porn Star Sasha Grey. And she turns in a pretty good performance as an escort who specializes in “the girlfriend experience,” which makes clients believe they have something other than a hooker on their hands. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since director Steven Soderbergh has lots of experience working with non-professional actors. Which, hey, Grey’s a professional actor, when you get down to it.
