What Porn Stars Find Sexy on TV: From ‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Deadliest Catch’

What turns on the people who’ve seen it all? Aurora Snow canvassed the adult industry to see which television shows excite its XXX talent.

Ever wonder what shows might get a porn star all hot and bothered? For me, it's Masters of Sex: A show that portrays sex in an intimate setting without it being gratuitous or out of context, and that explores the dividing line between sex and emotion with explosive results. Yes, there are plenty of naked bodies, women masturbating, and couples copulating, but it's done in the name of science. And I love that! Woven into the very fabric of its characters, Masters uses sex to broach bigger topics. And yet the subtle and overt use, the constant and consistence presence of sex, is hotter to me than some XXX-rated flicks. I've seen it all. I'm not jaded. But the innuendos and suggestion are sometimes (for me) better than seeing those impersonal penetration shots up close in high-def—especially when an actor has razor burn. And I'm not alone. Here's a quick peek at what TV shows make your favorite porn stars feel frisky.

Tory LaneDeadliest Catch

AVN Award-winning porn star Tory Lane says she can be turned on very easily. “I am totally obsessed with Deadliest Catch. It's not really sexy but it's hot to watch men doing manly things. I watch a lot of cooking shows and home improvement shows, too. I get turned on by normalcy. You know the comedian Amy Schumer? I love her. She's hilarious! I find her totally sexy and she keeps me interested. It's a lot easier for me to find the sexy in somebody who may not think they are. I like the chubby fat chick.”

Tanya Tate - Game of Thrones

Nine-time MILF of the Year award winner Tanya Tate says she can't get enough of Game of Thrones. “I’ve read all the books, watched the entire series. I think it’s incredibly hot and I enjoy it immensely. I played Cersei Lannister in an adult video parody version of it and was able to act out a fantasy of my own. I find the underlying sexual tension to be such a turn-on. Game of Thrones is something I really enjoy watching and more often than not, find myself feeling a bit frisky afterward.”

Ariel Rebel - Spartacus

XBIZ and AVN award-winning starlet Ariel Rebel is smitten with Spartacus. “I find the sex scenes to be amazingly well shot. They found the perfect recipe to make these non-explicit scenes feel as if they were as explicit as a porn movie. The actors are in character a hundred percent of the time and both the men and women are gorgeous to look at. Although I need my dose of kink from time to time, more often than not, mainstream productions will always find a way to sexually excite me.”

Venus LuxTrue Blood / Vampire Diaries

XCritic's March 2014 “Must-See Girl of the Month” and current XBIZ Transsexual Performer of the Year, Venus Lux finds True Blood and The Vampire Diaries to be erotic fodder. “I love how the story involves the fantasy of vampires—they exude lust, seduction, and intimacy. The sexual acts are mysterious, unpredictable, and passionate; they tease your senses. Because I'm in the porn industry, I'm used to performing in porn that’s very sexual from beginning to end. Sometimes, there needs to be a mystery or something more organic. That said, TV shows provide food for the imagination and that entices your fixation to the screen. Sex can be just like anything you do or eat: Too much of the same will be boring.”

Gauge - Gigolos

Gauge admits to being more modest than you might expect—especially for a porn star. “If I walk on set it's just a set. I'm desensitized in that way. But in my personal life or in the real world without the lights, camera, action, I'm extra sensitive to [sex scenes]. I'll blush. I'll blush even if I am watching it by myself and the longer it is the more uncomfortable I get. That said, we watch Gigolos all the time. These guys are escorts in Vegas and it shows A LOT! I think I giggle the whole time. But really whenever I see sex scenes on TV, maybe I subconsciously get hot and bothered after the fact, but during it I blush.”

Jelena JensenTrue Blood

Award-winning Penthouse Pet and Playboy model, Jelena Jensen says there are a few TV shows that turn her on but True Blood stands out the most. “Everyone was sleeping with everyone else and of course vampires have major sex appeal. Doesn’t hurt that they had a couple hot guys on the show either. For me, I find the whole biting the neck and wrists very erotic, and this obviously happened a lot with it being mostly centered on vampires. They usually bite and feed in these very erogenous zones, which are some of my favorite areas to be kissed and lightly bitten.”

Alana Evans - Spartacus

Veteran porn star and avid gamer Alana Evans says her absolute favorite show is Spartacus. “At first it was all the sexy men in loincloths and then they started showing frontal nudity. I fantasize about guys on TV but they usually aren't getting naked for me (unless I'm lucky). So if I want to get in the mood I'll turn on an old episode. I also love surprise dick pics in my phone from someone that I am attracted to. My sex drive has totally changed as I've gotten older and I just don't think I can have enough sex these days—so bring on the frontal nudity and the dick pics!”
