James Gunn's PG Porn is a web series created by the brothers James Gunn, Brian Gunn, and Sean Gunn. It consists of a series of pornography spoofs, with a humorous event occurring just before the supposed commencement of sexual acts. Each episode pairs a mainstream actor with a pornographic actress or model. The tagline is, "For people who love everything about Porn...except the sex."

The initial episode premiered on Spike.com and received over a million hits in a week, and was featured on Entertainment Weekly's The Must List.[1] Spike subsequently picked up the series for an additional 11 episodes.[2]

The project has, however, not been without controversy. The Huffington Post condemned the first episode for glorifying violence against women.[3]

According to James, they developed the idea in the early 2000s, before short-term Internet-based sketch comedies became popular. Stephen Blackehart of The Good Boys Productions produced the show with Jake Zim and Peter Safran of Safran Digital Group (SDG) for Spike.com.[4]
