'Porn King' Ron Jeremy disses video games

Adult video star Ron Jeremy deflects criticism of porn industry by accusing games of being 'far worse'.

Oh Ron Jeremy, could it be you were simply kidding when you called video games a 'far worse influence' than porn last week? It's so hard to tell. I mean, didn't you recently sponsor an adult-rated video game called Bonetown?

Pot and kettle, sir?

According to PC Mag, you dropped your anti-games slur at a Vegas Consumer Electronics Show panel last week titled "The Great Porn Debate," initially trading quips with an anti-pornography activist who accused you of communicating solely with a fax machine. Like a dulcet-tongued poet, you outlined the similarities between competitive athletics and adult entertainment by invoking the hauntingly eloquent expression: "World of sport versus world of spurts." You went on to boldly imply that the porn industry really ought to figure out how to properly cater to under-18-year-olds.

And then you turned on the video games industry.

We don't want kids to watch porn. Though if they do, there are far worse influences out there, like video games. [Studies have] found that violent video games are [a] much bigger...negative influence on kids.

It may be. Make love not war, so they say, and more games are about war than that other unmentionable, ban-trolling thing.

Then again, your hands aren't exactly spotless.

After all, you did star in that 1993 classic Super Hornio Bros as a computer programmer ("It's-a-me, Squeegie!") who gets sucked Tron-like into a kooky video game world, where you proceed to fight game characters and...well, let's just leave it at fight, shall we?

What, you blame video games for that too?

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
