IO9 posted a nice homage to older porn parodies (back before they were just “This Ain’t (insert original film’s name here)” or “(insert original film’s name here): An XXX Parody.”
Science fiction has long encompassed every aspect of human experience — including sex. For as long as we’ve dreamed of going to space, we’ve dreamed of getting it on there. And porn has embraced science fiction as well — from 1968’s softcore masterpiece Barbarella to the 1990s cyberpunk boom to the recent craze for porn spoofs, there has always been science fiction porn. After all, porn is an escapist genre when you get right down to it. And the line between a science fiction “B” movie and a softcore porn film is often more seethru than Jane Fonda’s breast bubbles.
Here are the greatest science fiction porn films of all time, from 1961 to 1991. It’s NSFW! Note: There are a number of exploitation films on this list, but no horror, since that’s a very different category. Likewise, no fantasy. Also, if we missed your favorite, please chime in in the comments! With such a huge and sweeping topic, I’m sure we missed some stuff. We’ll be covering 1992 to the present very soon.
Includes a reference to “Sex Wars” which was the first adult movie I ever saw.
Sex Wars (1985)
Why did it take eight years for a straight-up porno spoof of Star Wars to appear? There were plenty before this, of course, but this was the most blatant. As one IMDB reviewer notes, this film is at least better than George Lucas’ prequels. In any case, Princess Layme (ha ha, you’re killing me) seeks help to rescue her sister, Princess Orgasma (humor levels escalating) from Lord Balthazar, who’s basically Darth Vader but they couldn’t think of a riff on Darth Vader that was as witty as Princess Layme and Princess Orgasma. They did manage to name the R2D2 robot analogue 4Q.
