This is why we can't have funny clever porn titles anymore. Whatever happened to Pump Fiction, Shaving Ryan's Privates, or Hairy Twatter? Now it's "Mainstream Property: The Porn Parody." Boo, I say. Boo.

Is the Dumbass tag bound and gagged? They do porn parody movies all the time. Just call it something slightly different.

Jeez, they could just have called it "69 Shades of Grey" without any legal problems.
