The 8 Best Porn Blogs on the Web

RSS Reader
I read a few dozen blogs every day to keep up with what’s going on in the porn industry. A couple of news sites, some blogs that aggregate interesting porn-related websites and a few written by industry insiders. There are a lot of good sites out there, but if you only read a few blogs per day, these are the ones I’d recommend (in addition to this one):

8. Boinkology
One part news, one part commentary and one part link lists, Boinkology is a nice catch-all blog for folks interested in sex (porn is a topic, but not the main focus of the blog).

7. Erik Rhodes “Slipping Away”
Reader Fedor tipped me off to the blog of gay porn star Erik Rhodes. He describes himself as a “miserable Porn Star with nothing better to do with his spare time.” You don’t have to be gay to find this guy’s blog entertaining.

6. Genesis Online
The online home of Genesis magazine. The blog is almost exclusively focused on porn news, but doesn’t sink to the level of some industry publications and simply post press releases for every new movie coming out.

5. Porn Star Babylon
I find a lot of porn star gossip on this site that doesn’t get widely reported elsewhere. Sometimes a little heavy on the Jenna Jameson news, but overall an interesting blog.


This blog seemed to start out as a pretty standard porn news blog. It’s since morphed into a predominantly personal blog of a woman who has alienated and enraged many in the adult industry. In that sense, it remains interesting, but I no longer count it among the best.

4. Popporn
TLA Video’s strange and entertaining blog about all things porn. It’s hard to describe. You kind of just have to read it.

3. Reverse Cowgirl
I think Reverse Cowgirl is one of the best blogs I’ve started reading in the last year or so. The author, Susannah Breslin, is not only an engaging writer, she brings a very interesting perspective to sex and porn.


Evidently, Ms. Breslin takes offense to being on a list of porn blogs. So she’s been removed.

2. Gram Ponante’s Porn Valley Observed
I’ll admit to being a little biased because Gram is a friend, but I’ll say that the reason we became friends is that I loved his blog and wrote to him out of the blue. Gram is a freelance comedy writer who spends his time hanging out with porn stars and writing about his adventures.

1. Fleshbot
The ultimate porn/sex information aggregator. Period. As part of the Gawker blog empire, they post tons of stuff every day and there’s something interesting to read every time I visit. If you only read one porn blog (other than the VB blog!), make it this one.

    Alison:

    Haven’t had a chance to look at other blogs yet but will soon i hope. In all sincerity i feel a little awkward,commenting on blogs other than this one on this site. Others might feel the same as to explain why i am first one commenting on this topic.
    Not much of a response i guess but this is what comes to mind

  2. dphunkt Says:

    much appreciated. ive heard of a few, but most are new to me. think im gonna surf em now, actually! let me know if you want me to post some comic book blogs, lulz..

  3. Darrah Says:

    Wow thank you! :D I’m new to porn blogging and after being banned in so many places and barred from entering forums and thinking my blog is shit, you made my day!

  4. Strangepork Says:

    Thanks Alison for sharing your sources. I skimmed the first page of each of them, and it is worth noting that they all have something unique to say – they aren’t all just repeating the same stories as each other. I’ve added most of them to my RSS reader. :)

  5. dphunkt Says:

    sorry, i prolly shouldve caught this before – but Gram’s site wont load (for me, anyway)//blerggg

  6. fedor Says:

    Erik Rhodes blog is one of the most amusing blogs of all time.

  7. xposh Says:

    dphunkt, it’s a picture of Audrey Hollander.

  8. G man Says:

    Good entry Alison!
    A few cool new blogs to explore. The Gram Ponante one looks nicely quirky. I am a bit surprised to see Fleshbot as your number one choice. I read it myself – but I find it to be mostly a bit of fun rather than particularly edgy.

  9. alison Says:

    HotScooter2 – Well, you know you’re always welcome here.

    dphunkt – Depends…what kind of comics do you like? Oh, and it seems that Gram was having some server issues on the very day I decided to post his blog here. Oops. It appears to have been fixed though.

    Darrah – You’re very welcome. I’ve followed the name change drama to a small extent and I can’t for the life of me figure out why you seem to have so many problems. Is there something I’m missing?

    Strangepork – No problemo. Hope you enjoy ‘em.

    fedor – Thanks again for tipping me off to that one. So bizarre.

    G man – Gram’s a funny guy. If you like quirky, I think you’ll enjoy him a lot. As for Fleshbot, I wrestled with the decision for a while. But I’ve been reading them for years, so I figured there must be *some* reason for it. I mainly think they’re a good source for links to other interesting places.

    ZOMG Darrah is *that* Darrah!? I’ve actually read PSB all the way back to day one, it’s very good! I especially like its creative use of kitten pics. (And if anybody thinks that’s not very manly, they can just f*ck off. :P )

  11. Darrah Says:

    Alison, porn star Jeremy Steele has gotten in my head thinking that the blog shouldn’t be named Porn Star because I put other things in it too that isn’t porn. And he does porn. I was actually thinking of calling it Hollywood X at one time. :D

    mileswb, thank you! That means allot. Day one? So you’re at Wordpress and found me through tags? I’m not a writer but I’m trying to write things more myself instead of cut and paste. And I never knew if anyone would think I’m high on drugs for posting pictures of cats and dogs on a porn blog. I shall post more then! :D

  12. G man Says:

    Dear Darrah
    Your blog is opinionated, different and probably pisses off a lot of people. Just as it should be!
    Keep on blogging … and keep up the flow of kitty pics. Some of us find cats sooo cute (just as much as we enjoy looking at deep anal fucking).

  13. biglucifer Says:

    Folk’s not on topic but the actor known as Max Hardcore has just been convicted of ten counts of obscenity. Max faces hard prison time (pun intended) and lose of his home and mighty empire. I would love to see a discussion of Max’s conviction. Folk’s big brother is watching. If Mcain is elected I expect the feds and the states to start going after the consumers. Am I wrong?

  14. StickyNote Says:

    I can’t believe you left out christiansingstheblues.com. The blog is a gift for porn fans.

    And Combat Zone must be in a lot of trouble as a company…P.O.V. Perv came out on DVD 1 month ago.

  15. alison Says:

    Darrah – The hell with him. You should call your blog whatever you like. Thanks for the link, by the way.

    biglucifer – Thanks for mentioning that. I’ve been out of town a few days, but I’m composing a post on that very topic right now.

    StickyNote – I’ve read Christian Sings the Blues off and on, but I never fully got into it. Re: Combat Zone, I’m pretty sure they’re doing just fine. They just embrace the fact that the future of porn is *not* on DVD.

  16. StickyNote Says:

    If the future of porn is not on DVD does that bode well for Videobox? Videobox will still be able to draw from studios’ back catalogues, but getting scenes from new girls might be tough.

    It is sad that DVD sales are plummeting. Let’s face it, the quality of original content put out by websites pales in comparison to what the big studios put out. I’m not just talking about picture quality. Because I am sure that will keep improving. I mean production values.

    Also, the move to the web means porn is less profitable. Look at all the content that sites like Bangbros offer for 25 bucks. Less porn will be made and compensation for talent will probably fall. Meaning that fewer talent will be attracted to the industry.

  17. Christian XXX Says:

    ROFL, I just found this list of the top 8 porn blogs…..hilarious. Love my blog or hate it, to say that it isn’t as good a read as these blogs is patently ridiculous. I talk about the actual industry and give an inside look to actual scenes. It’s called authenticity. Please which one of the 8 blogs you listed besides Erik Rhodes has any authenticity or credibility talking about this business? Just a ridiculous list. Okay, carry on.

  18. alison Says:

    Sorry, Christian. I only posted blogs that I read. As I said in my last comment, I don’t read yours on a regular basis. It’s nothing personal. To your question, they’re blogs about porn, not by porn stars. If I wanted to make a list of blogs by porn industry insiders, I would’ve had people like Mike South or Ivan on the list.

  19. Gram Ponante Says:

    Thanks, Alison! Myself, I do not know how you find the time to read blogs for even part of the day, what with your puppet-wrangling, but I am honored to be so nicely complimented by someone whose opinion on non-porn-related things (save for your inexplicable affection for “Tru Blood”) is also spot-on.

    And Christian, as the only other tall person at the “Pirates 2″ premiere, you should have come clean to me when you lamented that people thought you had cooties that my website lacked authenticity. I thought we’d shared a special moment, not knowing that just 26 short days earlier you had cut me to the quick, sir.

  20. Dan @ Genesis Says:

    Hi… thanks for the kudos (god I hate that word, but the snack food is kinda good). Just was made aware of this and it’s very cool (another “great” word). Seriously, thanks for the recognition — it’s seriously appreciated.

    I am seaching for some idea to write in my blog
