Now's your chance to get with Jenna Jameson... Okay, not really. Apparently, the new gig in Berlin, Germany as of last month is pr0n Karaoke - you and a partner (or two, or three?) get together on stage, with a movie up on the screen, and "act out" the parts being played out graphically. So.... practice your faking and get ready to go!

I attended a couple porneokie events in San Francisco, but they differ from that described in the article. The karaoke was the traditional bad singing variety but the catch was that the lyrics were superimposed on some of the grosser more disturbing XXX videos... so it was hard to read the lyrics with that kind of distraction going on. Fun time all around. Man, I miss SF.

When he was four, my son used to do something very similar to some of the action scenes in the Disney movie Mulan.

Is this like air guitar, except without pants?

Though many have envisioned a pantsless society, Matt, it yet remains a glorious utopian dream.

Germans are screaming, moaning and panting ...

Sounds like there's plenty of pants to me.

When I first read this, I thought that the participating actually ACTED OUT whatever was onscreen.

I was fighting off images of older, less 'healthy' Germans doing such things . . .

I could see this as a pretty humorous party game but the idea of faking orgasms in a bar just sounds more than a little stupid. Maybe I should have five or six cocktails and then give it another thought or two?

Oh yeah, that'll work. Still strange but whatever makes those wacky Germans happy.

I'll continue to pretend to be having sex with Jenna Jameson in the privacy of my own home, thank you.

XQUZYPHYR - I think that would be the sentiment of most.

My thought exactly, mr_crash_davis. Scary. Very scary.

They say public speaking for many is ranked higher than fear of death. Not sure where public sex karaoke ranks.

You can't have your bukkake and eat it too.

errr...wait a sec...

Bukkake.... I just met a girl named bukkake...

Since Stan was kind enough to dispell the myth here, I think that this would be the song that goes *after* bukkake...

Oops! "...to *dispel* the myth..." Sorry.

This Momus song might be a nice alternative to bukkake.

wanking like crying is something a man should only do in private in front of a computer.

C'mon people! It's way too obvious!

"Hot White Cum", by Liz Phair, who is welcome to be my porneoke partner, despite the wanton awfulness of her latest record.

BTW, whatever happened to drinking as the primary bar-related activity?

Germany? I'm surprised this isn't something the twentysomethings of today are doing in order to shock their parents.

At one time I hoped something similar to this would have become popular by now. A set up similar to that described, except it would be B-rated movies and instead of faking orgasms, participants would improvise humorous dialogue. A la Mystery Science Theater. Combining film media with live action improvisation. Of course it'd never work. Too many critics in the audience. Everybody thinks they can do better than whoever has the mike. It'd deteriorate into a room filled with hecklers. Rocky Horror Picture Show was a rare anomaly.

But hey. Sex sells. I think I'll stick to serious dvd commentaries about movies where people actually wear clothes. I know. Sounds kinky.
