Putting the hard questions to Ron ‘the Hedgehog’ Jeremy
I was chatting away to the legendary Ron Jeremy about politics, as you do, then tried to move the question to the porn industry. “Oh, you wanna talk about my penis?”, he asked.
“Um. Do you want to talk about your penis?” I replied.
“Nah, it’s fine. It talks for itself,” he said.
And it does, apparently, blogging and tweeting under the handle @RonsMonster. So there you go. I did want to confirm his size, though. So I asked him.
“Two inches,” he replied.
“From the ground.”
He also refers to his ‘monster’ as a ‘schmeckel’. A Yiddish word for penis. “You wanna give it a kiss because it’s so cute,” he said.
It’s like dirty dad jokes all day with this guy.
Ron ‘the Hedgehog’ Jeremy is a legend by any account. Just look at the numbers: He’s been involved in more than 2000 films, he’s had sex with anywhere up to 5000 women (“between three or four thousand, maybe five,” he says). He’s nearly 60 and he’s still going hard (sorry).
Lately, the star of films such as Orgazmo has been doing music videos with the likes of Kid Rock, LMFAO, and Guns N Roses.
As if he’s not already over-exposed, there was a ‘Ron Jeremy for President’ campaign running recently with the tagline: “You’re going to get screwed anyway, might as well get screwed by a pro!”.
One of his biggest concerns right now is what a new law forcing porn stars to wear condoms will do to the Los Angeles industry. Health advocates say it’s necessary, but the porn industry is resolutely opposed to it, saying fans don’t want to see condoms.
Jeremy says the rules only affect LA, so it’ll just destroy the industry there and people in New York and Las Vegas will continue to make condom-free films.
“Congratulations, you’ve now outsourced the porn business,” he said. What’s next, he wanted to know, dental dams? “You know why they call them dental dams. Damn if I’d ever wear one!”.
I had one more question to put to him: Why did he stop doing his signature move?
“I was doing it until there was no need for it because the novelty was over,” he said.
“People weren’t interested in it anymore.”
People also aren’t so interested in porn films anymore; the internet with its limitless free porn and amateur sites means far fewer films like Killer School Girls from Outer Space or The Devil in Miss Jones.
But people are still interested in Jeremy, and he’s on his way to Australia for Sexpo at the end of the month and for the Eros Shine Awards on November 29.
