Why Do We Watch Superhero Porn Parodies?

Lately the world has been obsessed with superheroes, and that trend doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon. For the next few years we’re going to have to cope with endless trailers showing superheroes kicking ass. Not that we really mind, because honestly, superheroes are sexy as hell.

Superheroes always wear the tightest outfits and can contort themselves into the most amazing positions, so it’s hardly surprising we can’t help looking at them with lust in our eyes and a hand in our pants.

But this rise of superheroes has also meant the rise of superhero porn parodies. We get it, people will make porn parodies of everything (including Spongebob Squarepants, which we can NEVER unsee)… but why are people continuing to watch superhero porn parodies?

Justice Is Coming

Porn parodies are getting in on the superhero action, but for one director it is something he has been doing for a long time already.

Axel Braun is an award-winning porn director who is known for creating unusual parodies, so we should really have expected him to make a Batman v Superman porn parody. After all, he has done plenty of porn parodies before. We’ve seen an Elvis porno, Ghostbusters porno, and even a Cinderella one following the release of Disney’s live action film.

He just isn’t going to stop, and has recently teased on Twitter the release of ‘Batman v Superman XXX’.

High expectations

The poster, which he tweeted on the 18th April, features Superman and Batman standing side by side with a city landscape in the background and the words “justice is coming” hovering between them. Sometimes tells me that justice won’t be coming to the rescue in this parody.

The caption under the poster reads “Awesome Bat-Armor? Check. Clever tag line? Check. A movie that will be WAY more fun than @BatmanvSuperman? CHECK! ;)”

Expectations for Braun’s film are high, given how popular his previous parodies have been. He’s done them for all sorts of superheroes before, from Spider-man to Wolverine and even the God of Thunder himself, Thor.

In fact, both Superman and Batman have had their own porn parodies before, as you can see for the trailer to ‘Batman XXX’ below:

Media buzz

Honestly, we have to give Braun his credit for publicising this film in the right way. He has chosen the best time to make it, with the film due for release next month, and is using the hype about superheroes to talk about it.

Last week, everyone was talking about Jared Leto’s Joker teaser that was revealed for the Suicide Squad movie, and he used that as the perfect opportunity to showcase his own Joker for the parody.

In fact, he posted the teaser poster for this new movie the same day that the Dawn of Justice trailer was leaked online.

We can bet that every single superhero movie that is coming out lately, Axel Braun has an XXX version of it ready to go.

Sexy superheroes

In a way, I understand why people are so eager to watch these porn parodies. For a start, superheroes tend to be very sexy to look at. The men have huge bulging muscles and a codpiece that can barely contain their cock, while the woman are showing off their tits and ass in spandex so tight they might as well not be wearing any.

Of course, their costumes aren’t at all practical, but this is a story. They aren’t going to be practical, because superheroes are, of course, a work of fiction and, in many cases, perversion.

Superheroes are sexy to look at anyway, and the fantasy of having sex with one has such huge appeal that of course people are going to watch a porn parody of it.

So, while many are screaming that we need to change the way female superheroes are shown to the world and remove the scantily clad nature from comics, we can understand why they are staying.

Fun

One of the big appeals of porn parodies, though, is that they are fun. They are more than happy to poke fun at the source material and will leave you rolling on the floor in stitches at the way it is acted.

The ‘Batman XXX’ parody that Braun created just reeks of Adam West Batman, and we wouldn’t be surprised if there was a reference to the “some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb” scene from the movie.

What can we expect from this new parody? It seems that Wonder Woman, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn are all set to make an appearance, which pretty much fulfils the fantasy of every red blooded man out there.

Will you be watching, or are you going to stick to your regular POV porn or lesbian porn instead? Have you see much of Axel Braun’s work in the past? Let us know on the Escort Sweden forum or by writing your thoughts in the comment box below.
