Can you direct me to genuinely funny comedic soft-core or hard-core pornographies? Along the lines of naked sitcoms?

Some pornography tries to be funny or ironic, and maybe even occasionally succeeds. That's not quite what I'm after.

Has there ever been produced a sitcom or movie that is genuinely funny, watchable in its own right thanks to a quality (or at least workmanlike) script, and incidentally naked or sexual?

I'm not talking about "Sex and the City", which (leaving aside whether it was "genuinely funny") had only 0 to 1 sexualizable scenes per episode. I'm talking about a show where characters spend at least a solid third of the time naked or fucking.

It has not yet been decided whether the point of this question is to settle a bet or to get off. (Probably the former, but hey, prove me wrong.)

For the purposes of this question let's put any and all sexual flavours in play.

(Anonymous answers can go to Chandler.protruding@gmail.com, and perhaps after enough have accumulated a moderator will be so kind as to post them here.)

Shortbus? It's more a wince inducing look at getting your sexual mess out in public, but it is intended to be a bit funny.

I really loved Almodovar's Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down. One of my favorite films, ever!

PG Porn

I'm a fan of Pizza Girls. It's not really that funny at all despite its efforts, but it does star Desiree Cousteau.

Pirates (SFWish trailer) was, in addition to being purportedly the highest budgeted porn movie ever, often hilariously funny. The leading actor has a true gift for comedy among his other plainly displayed endowments

It's not video, and it's a webcomic...but oglaf.com has me rolling on the floor often.

...and it's on Netflix streaming!

Does Dream On count? There was a lot of nudity, but it wasn't actual porn.
Californication, same thing - a lot of nudity, a lot of sexual situations, comedy, but not actually porn.

If webcomics count at all, Sexy Losers was dark, funny, and very explicit.

You know that there are already porn parodies of Friends, the Big Bang Theory, Star Trek, The Simpsons, Married with Children, The Brady Bunch, the original Batman, The Big Lebowski, Seinfeld, 30 Rock, and many many more that I couldn't name without a more than 10 second google search?

Just look up 'Porn Parody'.

There's a difference between "porn parody" and actual comedy. Although the Batman parody is, in-between the naked parts, an astonishingly meticulous parody/homage/re-creation of the Adam West TV series.

Seconding Pizza Girls and Desiree Cousteau. No one rocks the ascot quite like her.

There is, but you can look up the reviews to find out if it's actually funny.

There's also Zack and Miri make a porno, which I can't say fulfills your requirements for sure, since I have yet to see it.

I was about to say Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which is a Kevin Smith movie. So if you like Kevin Smith's sense of humor, you would probably enjoy it. Just make sure you don't watch the version edited for TV, of course.

Louis CK's first TV series on HBO "Lucky Louie" (2006) was incredibly funny, raunchy, sexually charged, and sweet all at the same time. I've never seen anything like it.

I loved The Auteur and it was filmed in Portland, Oregon! I was watching it on Hulu on my laptop and my husband kept having to come in and see what was so funny.

Would "The L Word" fit this category?

The best, and I mean the absolute funniest porno I have ever found/owned is called Captin Mongos Porno Playhouse.

Laugh track: check. Absurdity: check. Hardcore porn: check

I have never laughed so hard in my life at such an odd, obscure porno. You should be able to find it as a torrent just by googling that, as I am sure by now its hard to find an actual dvd of it (my copies were stolen twice, if that is a testament to its awesomeness!)

There's a gay porn called The Hole that is a take on The Ring ('if you watch this video... in seven days, you'll be gay!') and it's quite hilarious. There's a song in it that's just... hoo. Funny enough that they sell it in two versions, one hard-core and one with a lot of the sex stuff edited out. Some of my friends have a tradition of watching it every Halloween.

There is a porno about a matress and all the ladies who loved on it.... it is... probably? unintentionally hillarious, but oh so very, very funny. Erotic? well...... no.

Vintage porn: Alice and Wonderland. Well done, very funny.

The funniest porn parody I've ever seen is Reno 911 - A XXX Parody. The first half is hilarious and mostly free of sex scenes, though it does have the up and coming rap artist, "Lil' Whitey".

On the soft core side you have Young People Fucking. Pretty much just what it says on the tin.

Seriously people? "The L Word"? "Zack and Miri Make a Porno"?

It takes more than kissing and a titty scene to qualify as porno, unless you're still of an age to sneak looks at National Geographic... (dating myself there; even 10yo's see better stuff these days).

I'm partial to some of the porno blooper reels that are out there, but in general - comedy is often harder to pull off* than drama, and GOD KNOWS porn is rarely up to the challenge of even sitcom-level acting.
*sounds of boyish chuckling

There's some decent scripted comedy in a comeback movie by a porn star; I thought it was Ginger Lynn, but can't find it right now... I know: I'm useless.
