Football porn — The gridiron goes XXX.

“Maybe you support Cam Newton and the Panthers. Maybe you root for Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Maybe you don’t know, don’t care, and won’t watch Super Bowl 50 this Sunday. No worries, friend — There is always football porn.”

I recently spoke to Chelsea Summers for Vocativ re something we’ve all seen, but seem to know very little about: The presence of football in erotic narratives.

Chelsea traced the cultural significance of this specific porno trope, from its presence in classic erotica a la “Debbie Does Dallas” to present day. She spoke to insightful members of the adult industry including Lorelei Lee, the great Jeff Vanzetti of IAFD.com, and Micky Mod, as well as me.

Here’s a quote:

Despite being dated, “Debbie” remains the touchstone for football porn because it captures the essential erotic zeitgeist of the football fantasy.  “The team, the gangbang, the locker room, the cheerleaders in the locker room—that’s the essence of ‘Debbie Does Dallas,’” says Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, sociologist and author of Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment. “The storyline makes no sense,” Tibbals admits, “but it still hits all those points.”
