Ron Jeremy: The Legend Of Porn

If you have ever watched a porno, it most likely featured Ron Jeremy either as an actor or a director. His legacy within and contribution to the adult entertainment industry is immense, to say the least. You can safely say that this man has costarred with almost every female pornstar who was in the business, especially when you take into consideration that his porn career started way back when in 1979. Interestingly enough, Ron Jeremy was actually a teacher before becoming a professional pornstar. Since then, Ron appeared in over 2000 porn films and directed over 200 of them.

Anyway, Ron Jeremy was ranked at the first spot in the AVN’s aptly named 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time list. He also had a documentary released about him in 2001. He is even featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most appearances in adult films. Whichever accolade you may think of, naturally if it is related to the adult entertainment industry, this man has won it. Plus, his face is recognizable, not only thanks to his porn career but for his mainstream career as well. You see, Ron has appeared in movies, TV shows, and music videos as well. Heck, he was even a playable character in a video game. You could truly say that this man has done it all.

In case you did not know, Ron Jeremy has a nickname. He was dubbed ‘The Hedgehog’ after a fellow actor Bill Marigold saw his hairy body after a shower. Interestingly enough, at the start of his career, Ron Jeremy used his full name (Ron Hyatt), but he dropped it after his grandmother, who was listed as R. Hyatt in the phone book, got pestered with phone calls due to Ron being featured in the Playgirl magazine.

There are tons of interesting facts and rumors about The Hedgehog, but there is only one truth – he is definitely the most popular and the most recognizable pornstar in the history of pornstars. Even if he is in his sixties, you can still see this guy on porn sets either acting in movies or helping other people create them. He has helped the porn industry, not only with his acting work but also by advocating for the right to create porn during a series of debates called the ‘Porn Debate Tour’. Ron Jeremy is a living porn legend and a man that is admired both by his fans and by his coworkers. Plus, when you take into consideration that there isn’t an adult person in the world who at least has not heard his name, then you know just how popular Ron really is. Hardly will ever another Ron be born and hardly will anyone achieve a status that is at least close to Ron’s. Especially due to the fact that porn stars do not last that long in the industry nowadays. Be that as it may, when you take into account all of his accomplishments, you have to come to a conclusion that Ron is indeed a very special human being, regardless of the fact whether you like or dislike him.
