Ron Jeremy Debates Porn

JONESBORO, Arkansas – Legendary porn star and former New York City school teacher Ron Jeremy will put his words to good use next month when he comes up against anti-porn crusader Susan G. Cole in a debate on the porn industry.

The debate will take place at Arkansas State University.

Cole is the author of numerous articles on violence against women, a book titled "Pornography and the Sex Crisis," and she has been an outspoken critic of porn films since the 1970s when Jeremy first launched his career.

Cole is best known for protesting the movie "Snuff," a so-called "sexploitation" film based on the Charles Mansion family.

"Snuff" opened in 1976 to a flood of controversy, feminist outrage, and picketers protesting a genre of films known as snuff films in which actresses were actually harmed or killed during the film's production.

According to author and social critic Scott Stine, the film "Snuff" continues to be used by anti-pornography campaigners "to defend their moralistic crusades."

But despite the controversy, the film outpaced all other film releases at the time, including "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" and grossed upwards of $66,000 dollars in its first week, Stine says.

According to a bulletin, the pornography debate between Jeremy and Cole will take place on March 10 at 7 p.m. in Riceland Hall of the ASU Fowler Center. The debate is open to the general public.

Jeremy's participation in the debate comes on the heels of his appearance in the television series "The Surreal Life," a WB production that contrasted Jeremy's lifestyle as a porn icon with oddball characters such as Tammy Faye Bakker, 1980s television idol Erik Estrada, and former rapper Vanilla Ice.
