Two Things That Don’t Mix
Maybe it is not a well known combination as peanut butter and jelly but porn and sports are two of largest industries when it comes to revenue. Both industries have stars that become the faces of the industries; these stars are the people we go pay to watch and the people that draw in the big money from the respective industries. Sport stars are always in the news about contract disputes, huge trades, and free agency. I am sure the same can be said for the porn industry. However, I have yet to see a “lock out” in the porn industry.
Sports are much more acceptable than porn and most people keep their views of porn to themselves, as porn is not received with positive results in our society but what happens when the 2 worlds collide?
Notable Athlete/Porn Star Couples
- Jenna Jamison – Tito Ortiz

What happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas
NFL quarterback, Donovan McNabb was caught on camera at a pool in Las Vegas, while partying with porn star Jayden James. Both of them claimed nothing happened. Jayden James was rumored to be involved with UFC star Chuck Liddell but again no one knows for sure. Another football player left zero doubts on his involvement with a porn star. Rashad Buetler of the Houston Texans, tied the knot with porn star Mya G.
Rob Gronkowski , star player of the New England Patriots spent a bye week Bibi Jones, a popular porn star signed by Digital Playground. Bibi Jones, who already has a fondness to athletes, was allegedly involved with other athlete as well. She had stated that she had hooked of with numerous professional baseball players when she accompanied an agent from a Major League Baseball team, on recruiting trips, to help land clients.
League Of Their Own
Major League Baseball players and Playboy Playmates seem to be a popular dating combination. Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays and Playboy Playmate Jaime Edmondson made their relationship public back in February. Longoria’s teammate, Reid Brignac is not only dating a Playboy Playmate (Lauren Anderson), but the two are expecting a child.
Ray J’s “One Wish”
Kim Kardashian gained notoriety for her infamous sex tape she made with singer Ray J. It is arguable if this makes her a porn star or not but the video is being distributed by Vivid Entertainment. She was married NBA player Kris Humphries which only lasted 72 days before divorce papers were filed. She was previously in a relationship with Miami Dolphin player Reggie Bush (cool porn name) but they had split ways.
Porn Recruiters, Scouts, & Contract Offers, Oh My!
Reggie Bush’s girlfriend after Kardashian was a singer named Mayra Veronica from Cuba. She also was a model for FHM and Maxim magazines. She was offered $1 million to do a sex tape, in which she declined. Numerous porn companies made former NBA first round draft pick, Greg Oden offers to makes movies, to his agent, after nude pictures leaked over the internet revealing his well-endowed penis.
Cheating And Sports?
The NHL is not excluded from being caught in porn’s web. Porn star and Penthouse pet Gina Lynn slept with Philadelphia Flyers Scottie Upshall. What is even worse is she was actually cheating on her husband at the time. Did porn star Mary Carey cheat on her boy friend Chris Kirkpatrick of ‘N Sync, when she was allegedly pursued by NBA star Dwight Howard? Howard was said to have confronted her at the house of Kirkpatrick and exposed is private parts to her in the bathroom. Apparently they went into the bathroom so she could tell him to leave and it would not work.
Nothing But a “C” Thang
It might be a “celebrity thing” but there is a definite connection with porn stars and athletes. It might be because both share a sense of being “star-struck”, which is usually reserved for fans or is it that these stars are just in the limelight and their lives garner much more of the media’s attention? The answer may not ever be known but see in stars become “star-struck” has a humanizing effect on the porn stars and athletes. They are not seen as invincible or super powered. They are just people just like us.
Ridiculous stage names are common in the porn industry, most of which have sexual connotation attached to them. Some athletes share these types of names; however these names are their real names that were given to them and not chosen themselves. Of course you have to have a mind tuned into identifying these types of sexual connotation.
